Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Jim, Rudy and me! (Jim’s behind the camera!)


Always remember sweet friends, each of us has a very important role in the Kingdom. God loves using us daily and has even better plans for our lives in 2013! Whether we are the lowly Shepherd tending our flock, the angel heralding good news, wise men of means generously giving, a faithful father in awe of God’s faithfulness or a “take that leap of faith” mom who can’t help but sing in her heart…GOD TOOK ONE LOOK AT ME AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED! I AM TRULY THE MOST FORTUNATE WOMAN ON THIS EARTH! Whatever role, do it to God’s glory with a thankful heart!

Oh God, open doors for us to walk through according to your good plans for 2013. Surprise and delight us as we find ourselves continually surprised and delighted about you, our Lord. 

As I sit and seek God’s face before another year introduces itself, I encourage you to do the same. God longs to reveal hidden and secret things to us if we will wait patiently, blooming where he has planted us.

Be still and know that He is God. (Psalm 46:10) A God of beauty, order and grace. A God we can trust fully. A mighty God completely able…

It has been such a delight to share my life with you! Thank you. I love you, and I look forward to God’s plans for  2013.

    Oh, friend, reading your words is almost as good as hearing your voice. The Christmas Replenish post took my breath away–you did good! What a God-glorying time.

    I miss you. sending love and Christmas hugs across the miles….
