Christ-mas Time!

My family and I had a wonderful Christmas Eve and Day this year! Lucas is old enough to really enjoy all of the festivities and he loves getting to see everyone. We got to eat a ton of good food and spend the afternoon at Brent's Mamaw's! Lucas got too many toys and is truly spoiled! We did not go over board with gifts and kept it simple this year, we are scrimping and saving to be debt free! (really soon! I'll save that for another post)But I got the best gift of all this year, a newly found relationship with My Jesus! I am so thankful for coming back to Him! He makes my life fuller than it has ever been, I feel a calm over me that has been nonexistent for years! And I know it will only get better from here on out! And I am so excited to see what He has in store!
In the past 5 years or so I haven't put him at the center of my life for one reason or another, there really is no good reason. I have been searching to fill my life, weather it be friends or material things to no avail. And now I know why. I want to focus on finding a Church this year for my family to get involved in, I want Lucas to know everything I didn't as a kid I want him to love Jesus from the get go; and if we don't find one that's OK I will keep worshiping the best way I know how reading, praying, and song.

To some this will be a real shock, I have been pretty private about this and not many know but I want to talk about it and I am glad I can share with everyone. I am not ashamed!

I am so grateful to have a support system there is no way I would have been able to pursue this new path without it! My co-worker and now dear friend Jessica, she has shared so much with me and will never know how special she really is to me. And my husband Brent he has been so helpful and supportive, he actually grew up knowing about God and Jesus and learning about the Bible. He has taught me reading the Bible is not hard or scary. He also gave me my own Bible for Christmas and highlighted his favorite verses! Such a great gift I will treasure forever.

So this year He really is the reason for my season!

Now you know I can't do a post without pictures!! Here are a few!

This is the closest Lucas would get to Santa with a smile, I still can't believe he cried when we tried to put him on his lap! Maybe next year!

Lucas with his new Elmo watching Elmo! He is a big fan!
