A Celebration of Love

27 Dec


No matter how small or great a gift may be, it truly is an expression of love! Christmas, in our house, was a beautiful time full of smiles and touching moments. Thanking the Lord for His gift to us, receiving a verbal blessing from my parents, exchanging gifts, eating my favorite cookies, all being gathered together under one roof with the people I love….these are just a few of the things that touched my heart and allowed me to see, once again, how very much Jesus loves me!

Mom made a quilted Christmas card-holder for the other Smith household!

We know what he’ll be doing with all that deer meat he got this year! πŸ™‚

My mom surprised me with a quilt she made while I was in China

a preacher can never have too many of these

It’s a touch-screen iPod nano!

Needless to say after opening a little gold box, I was more than pleasantly surprised! πŸ™‚

What a beautiful family

Another quilt mom made – she was very busy this year! haha!
