A Father's Love

My first guest blogger! :)  A special message from my sweet husband...

John 3:16: For GOD so LOVED the world that he gave HIS only begotten SON that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 

Hope abounds as we quickly approach Christmas and the grand celebration of our Savior's birth.  I am so thankful for the precious gift given to us by Christ's great sacrifice and the promise of eternal life. 

Although my Dad is no longer on this earth to share Christmas with this year, I rest in the assurance that I will one day see him again.  I am grateful for all the time we had with him and all of his great love for his family. 

One of the things his grandchildren did to say goodbye was to release balloons to Heaven at his graveside.  Several months later our children wanted to send balloons to Grandpa again to say hello so they wrote notes to him on the balloons and let them go to Heaven.  It was amazing to watch the balloons released separately from my children's hands stay side by side during their entire journey as far as eye could see. 

I have posted the short video celebrating my Dad's life for anyone who was unable to attend his memorial service or wants to one again remember the life that he lived.

Merry Christmas!

A year ago today...

We met the most beautiful little princess.
We fell in love looking into her big, beautiful brown eyes.
We danced.
We cuddled.
She fell asleep with her hand curled in mine.

Love looks like this...

And this...

And this...
