Well, I know I am late to posting this but I wanted to share a little about our family Christmas. We had a tougher year this year because of missing family members but we did get some of the usual decorations up.
We made some new traditions this year but we kept one of my favorite traditions alive which is make cookies for some of the families around the community. This is a massive cookie baking that we did and I only got a few pictures because we ran short on time to get these done and delivered.
We did start a new dinner tradition that consisted of home cooked prime rib! My mom and dad do not like their steaks red at all but they loved the prime rib and ate tons! We were surrounded by friend that have become family and could not ask for a better day!
We missed the ones that were not with us so the decorations came down the day after because it was just too hard on our hearts to see the decorations up. We know that God has a plan to bring those that have gone astray back to us and we are waiting for him to do what only he can do to change the hearts of our loved ones.
We are geared up for the new year and I have been reading on social media about a word for the new year and I would have to say mine is “change.” I know that this is an old hat but I feel the waves of change crashing in on my family and I believe that these changes will be so awesome and all for God’s glory!
What is your word for 2017? What do you expect for God to do in this coming year?
Well, that is all I have to say for now! Have a blessed New Year and seek God in this time of new beginnings!
