Glad Tidings!

And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”  Mattew 1:21    

                As we gather around our families  celebrating the wondrous gift of the King, I pray we remember those many dear families who will not have their little ones this Christmas....gifts waiting, wanting to be opened but never to be.  A young couple in our  church family lost their precious 3 year old daughter in a horrible automobile accident.   The father was driving and had just sent his wife a text picture of little Maddie after picking her up.  It was only minutes later she left this world and was scooped up in the arms of Christ.  The mother is utterly heartbroken.  I have seen many mothers lose their child but this precious mother is the saddest I have ever seen.  She clutched her baby's blanket and wept bitterly.....completely lost without her daughter.  The grief in her soul has devastated her.  How do you survive a loss as this?   My heart aches for her and the so many others who have lost their loved ones.                                                                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 I am sharing some pictures throughout the years..... many you have already seen but since I have been neglectful maybe this will bring some light from our little world.
