The Future

I opened the book and my eyes fell on these words.

Psalm 34:4-8

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!

What great pictures Sharon and a great Psalm too - wonderful words how the Lord encamps around those who love and respect Him!

BTW - I'm having a children's Bible book giveaway on my blog. One winner will be picked on Jan. 4th. Would love it if you could spread the word. It would make a nice gift too for someone with a child.

Hugs and prayers to you! Happy New Year!

Sounds like a wonderful Christmas at your place! Great photos, too. Along with you, I pray that my family circle won't be broken "bye and bye" as the old song says.

Happy New Year!

What fun pictures you were able to get - so glad you had such a good Christmas. Our celebrations were very small this year, but not quiet with the 4 girlies!
