A Love Letter From Our Heavenly Father

Monday, January 8th, 2007

Dear One:You are not here, at this moment in time by some mere coincidence any more than you are on this planet by some random act of fate. I created you and I have a unique purpose for your life that you and only you can fulfill. Many things vie for your attention and affection, but your life is about much more than what you can see with your own eyes or touch with your own hands.

I love you, I love you so much that I sent Jesus to this earth so that you and I could be reconciled. His death was the ultimate expression of My love for you. In Jesus, My love is revealed, and I long for you to know the peace, freedom and forgiveness for which He died. I gave up everything I loved to demonstrate my impassioned love for you. Jesus’ death for your life. His rescue is for all who call on Him as Savior, including you. (more…)

New Year Update

Sunday, January 7th, 2007

It’s been a while since I updated the site – we’ve been a busy bunch…

Just thought I’d give a photo update of that past month or so. Christmas, Atlanta etc…

Atlanta

She sure has grown fast, but she is doing well, and sure likes to talk and giggle. If noone’s paying attention to her, she’s sure to let everyone know.

Christmas 2006

We had a great Christmas, we went to Uncle Brad’s in Estevan on Christmas Eve. Desteni was here and we let her open her present Eve morning since she was going back to her mom’s that night. We also let the other kids open one of theirs and we also got them all a special present for the trip to Estevan (2hrs) that day.

We got them all a portable DVD player for the van. They watched it all the way there and it definitely a different van ride than normal. If you have kids – get one!

Here are a couple pics of the family in Estevan:
