It was a Christmas of firsts... First time celebrating out west... first time celebrating in this house... first time celebrating with twins (as a family of 7)... and first time we had family come to us...it was the first time the twins met their great grandma... and the first time the kids tried crab legs (which they loved)... the first time I made Christmas cookies without stressing out over baking... I could go on and on... the lists of firsts, feels endless. It was a joyous time, one to remember for years to come...
"You've come, to bring peace, to be love, to be nearer to us. You've come, to bring life, to be light, to shine brighter in us. Oh Emmanuel, God with us. Our Deliverer, you are Savior. In Your presence we find our strength. Over everything, our redemption, God with us. You are God with us. You've come, to be hope, to this world, for Your honor and name. You've come, to take sin, to bear shame, and to conquer the grave. You are here and
You are holy... We are standing
In Your glory.. "
