We Wish You a Thankful Christmas

It's been a whirlwind around our house for the last few weeks with the blessed arrival of our second daughter, Sophie. God has touched our family this year not only with a beautiful daughter, but with His provision in our lives through our friends and family. We never really understood the ministry that it is to bring a family a meal until now. We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love. Its about so much more that the wonderful food. When people come to our home, they are telling us that they are standing with us. We are not alone. God is showing us in a very real way that He will provide. Thanks to all our friends and family for their support and willingness to love us. And thanks to God for reminding us that we have so much to be thankful for.

There are so many people around the world who can not see God's love or provision right now in their lives. We pray that through their difficult circumstances, pain, and abandoment, God will touch them and let them know they are not alone. May God's people stand up this year to show people in a real way that God loves them.

This season we celebrate the birth of God's son. We celebrate our ultimate salvation from ourselves through Him. And we celebrate God's provision for all of this and so much more because of His love for us. May all of our hearts overflow this season with a better understading of just how thankful we should be.

Merry Christmas! The Saviour is born!
