eli in the snow....

This is one of my favorite pictures of Eli,
 back when he was a baby,
back when he lived in Virginia where it snows
once in a while.

Everything about this picture makes me smile.....
His rosy cheeks,
those eyes,
the knit hat that my mother gave him,
the red coat,
the sprinkled snow.

Thankful today for the grace of God
that carries us through the hard times of life,
that brings remembrances to mind of happy times and places.
That reminds us that God is our
That He has written a book
that tells us
"Everything we need to know
pertaining to life and godliness."
That sent His own Son,
"God very God,"
to reconcile us back to Himself
and to provide for our eternity.

This season, 
amid all of the rants to the contrary,
let us proclaim the 
"Goodness of our God in the land of the living."

Praise to that little baby in the manger.
Praise to the risen Lord that
"Sits at the right hand of God
constantly praying for us."
