My Christmas Card

I really wish I had more time to blog about our Christmas memories we created this year. We are very busy trying to get the Little Guy’s room completed and various other house projects done while I am off work this week. I did manage to upload some pictures to our family blog. I thought I would share the present with you that brought tears to my eyes on Christmas morning. There was a beautifully wrapped present with a card attached that read “Mama” on the outside. When I opened the card this is what I saw…. (you can click on the pictures to enlarge them – I colored out his name of course!)

I started to cry a bit – mainly tears of joy. Of course there was sadness that the Little Guy wasn’t there, but really I felt overwhelmed with how lucky we are to be chosen to be his parents.

Inside the wrapping was a framed picture that I can’t really describe but the caption reads “Faith doesn’t get us around adversity. It gets us through it.” And then underneath that is Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and courageous for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Such a perfect gift given to me on behalf of our Little Guy!

Heather, How beautiful!! Thanks for sharing.

Laura said... touching! Once you bring Little Guy home, I know you'll know the feeling that Christmas is everyday...that's how I feel when I think how blessed we are by God choosing us to be Kristina's parents.

Merry Christmas to your entire family, and especially Little Guy, who will know the joy of family on Christmas from here on out!
