4 Days Until Christmas…

“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 7:6

:) That’s right! Only 4 days. I just looked at my calendar yesterday and was shocked to find that we were not only 4 days away from Christmas but 10 short days to the end of the year. This Christmas season really crept up on me! I know some don’t celebrate Christmas so whether you do or not, I hope you enjoy taking a peek into what is happening around our house as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior!

Today is the first day in 6 weeks that we have had a kitchen. We had grilled chicken for Thanksgiving with a promise to the little children that come Christmas, Lord willing, we would have a kitchen and then make a full-blown Thanksgiving dinner! Here we are today, the plumber hooked up the sink, the cabinet-maker came and installed the shelves, and the electricians wired the OVEN(no more grilling bread and potatoes :)!!  We are definitely having a belated Thanksgiving this week.  So, I loaded up the older kids  Young adults Grace, Lydia, Gideon, Joel, and Micah and we went grocery shopping! 3 carts later and near death by a few feisty shoppers, we have all the ingredients for a fabulous Christmas Day Thanksgiving dinner! Anybody want to come join us?? ;)

So without further ado, Christmas Randomness via pictures!  12.21.1212.21.12.712.21.12.612.21.12.812.21.12.5

“Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”
Isaiah 9:7

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. So thankful for the blessing of being able to openly celebrate the birth our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Isaiah 7:6 and 9:7 are two of my favorite verses. :) Thanks for the encouraging post.

    Merry Christmas!

    1. You commented, Christina!! Completely made my day. :)
      I am so thankful too. The birth of Jesus Christ and ultimately His death and resurrection are something to celebrate everyday! “O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.” Psalm 95:6

      MERRY CHRISTMAS to you!
