Winter Wonderland

December 28, 2010
We were blessed this year with a “White Christmas.” On Christmas Eve, there were rumors that snow was coming but I was hopeful that it would blow over…or that we would at least make it home safely before the first flakes. The good news is that we were able to safely make it home before any snowflakes were able to cover the roads.

(Isaiah 9:6-7) 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.The other day, I was finishing up my scavenger hunt when I paused on “It’s beginning to look a lot...
