I opened the book and my eyes fell on these words.
I sought the Lord and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears
They looked to Him and were radiant
And their faces were not ashamed
One day, at the end of our path through this world, we will stand on the edge of a new world. My dream is that we will stand together as a family, free of fear, our hearts welling up in anticipation for our future with our loving Father.
As you can see, I finally got a picture of us. And there is more!
First, here is mom and dad.
The flash on my camera is failing and I had lighten some of these photos.
Corey helped me get the tree this year. Diamond came too.
He carefully trimmed the bottom to his liking. (your eyes are okay...the picture is blurry.)
I'm so glad they were in a picture taking mood.
We had a nice Christmas. We had 10 family members for a mid-day meal of Ham, scallop potatoes, and more. Diamond's dog cousins Maggie and Samuel were here along with my sis-in-law and bro-in-law. Cousin Larry and 98-year old Aunt Elsie graced the table. My nieces in Colorado are flying out for a visit later this week!
The Psalm continues...
The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him.
And delivers them.
Oh taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
