well we had our "normal" CHRISTmas eve around here. we went to a CHRISTmas eve service & came home, got the kids in their brand new, matching pajamas & let them open the presents they got for one another. fun was had by all - doesnt it look like it was fun (ok rachel refused to smile).
ok for whatever reason blogger is acting weird about me uploading any more pictures so that will have to be done at a later time.
it's been a great day so far. i am getting ready to steam shrimp & broil some mahi. it's going to be a different type of CHRISTmas feast for us today...oh did i mention the steaks??!! and potatoes....and biscuits......
on a more "spiritual" note...we really are truly blessed to have a Savior who loves us regardless of our unrighteousness. His mercy & grace long endures when we do not.
"But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus." Ephesians 2:4-7
