Our family always tries to push into Jesus when the holidays begin because the world tries to sidetrack us into thinking that its about ” The Holidays ” and not about Jesus.  We remember to say ” Merry Christmas” when we buy anything this time of year and the response from people is so interesting.

It’s important to remember what this season is all about.

I am so thankful that I am reminded daily all of the good things that Jesus does for me and my family. When I think of all that Jesus has brought us through I get tears in my eyes because many of the hardships we endured the last two years seemed impossible for us to endure, but yet Jesus showed us the way and pulled us out. He is amazing and He is real.

Don’t forget to thank God for the things he has done for you and before you know it you will be grateful for what he has done and you will begin to feel Joy, real Joy.

I am so looking forward to going to Israel and Pakistan in January and take my relationship with God to a new level. I am looking forward to spending time with him alone in the desert place.
