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 and daddy on Christmas day.
