Happy New Year's Eve Everybody!!

The Holidays have come to an end,
the last day of 2016 is here.
We have made it, by the grace of God, through another year.

The tree is starting to look tired, 
(I forgot to add water last week.)
It's sagging and shedding.
No presents sit beautifully wrapped underneath.

Yes, this Christmas is over,
but tonight we have one last celebration.
We gather to remember all of the blessings
that God has given us so freely.
We eat together, 
we laugh and rejoice,
because we know that Jesus was born,
and with His life He gave life to us.

He has seen us through.
He has been faithful and generous, good and kind.
He has given us everything we need to live and thrive and grow.
He has not forsaken us one time.
Through every trial and temptation,
 He has provided counsel and truth from His word.
The truth has been proclaimed and we have worshiped Him with our songs.
We have been sick and have gotten well.
We have had great joy and profound sadness,
We have survived another year!
Thank You dear Lord!!

New Year's dinner was a low country boil.

Sparklers were the best!

Mommy and Jake.

It was a beautiful night,
a wonderful Christmas full of love and laughter.
To God be the glory great things He has done.

Happy New Year!!!!

And just so you know...
9 PM is the new midnight.
Let the ball drop in our dreams!
