For the Christmas program this year all the children wore their pajamas. Even though Justus' class did not sing in the program, we still let him participate in the PJ's dress. Both were VERY excited! When the kids in my class came in I took pictures of each of them and, of course, my own children wanted to be a part. Sitting with her class ready to go. Hannah with her friend from class, Ellie. They are cuties. Hannah with her teacher, Mrs Joy-Marie. AND, of course, Santa was there!! YAY!
To believe in Jesus as the Son of God means that we trust what He says is true and authoritative.
The temptation to listen temptation to listen to the world or our peers remains with us. Whether we listen to the world or listen to the words of Jesus will make a difference in our future. The Lord ended the Sermon on the Mount with these words:
Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord," will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of My Father who is in Heaven. On that day many will say to me "Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and cast out demons in Your name, and do many mighty works in Your name?" And then will I declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness."
Everyone then who hears these words of Mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it. (Matthew 7:21-27)
Postmodern Christianity, which has rejected absolutes, claims that what a person believes is insignificant as long as he believes and loves Jesus. Nothing, however, could be further from the truth.
((Less than a month ago does not require a "REWIND!" even though I am still quite behind!))
Hannah's school programs are so cute! For Thanksgiving each age group dresses up as something a little different. The 3 year old class is trukeys. The 3/4 year old class (my class) is pilgrims. The Pre-K classes (Hannah's class) are Indians.

An unexpected couple of inches before Christmas.This is actually Justus doing his new smile. Hilarious. I am afraid that my children may be developing my non-adventure attitude sometimes. (Or it may just be that we don't really have the clothes for snowy 15 degree weather.) Justus did not want to get off the porch. Hannah did all this in about 7 minutes.... and then wanted to come inside.
I am a Christian woman with the most wonderful husband. He is the absolute perfect man for me. I also have a beautiful daughter and a handsome son. We are blessed! Our family, daily, tries to do God's will and live as He would want, following the example of His Son, Jesus Christ.
"And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You."
