Christmas Card Goodness

Christmas cards have always been a big deal in my family. Every year we watch the cards pile up after Thanksgiving, and when I come home from college, I hoard them to myself and gawk at all the beautiful families sending us Holiday cheer. This was the first year my brother and I were on our own to snap our annual portrait being the last-minute-Lucy’s that we are. So naturally we sat on a rock on campus while I bossily posed Andrew and told him to please not be awkward. We always have a few heated moments when a camera is in front of us, and this year was no different :) 


Thanks to a friend the pictures turned out quite swell. While I wrap up finals and last minute craziness at school, my mind is focused on the fact that God came down to rescue us. Although we’re stressed and moving at a million miles an hour– take some time to slow down and reflect on the awesomeness of that.

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6-7
