"God With Us" & Recipe for Oreo Truffles

Tuesday, December 11, 2012
To mar means to injure or damage; to spoil, disfigure, or impair. 

It's an accurate description of sin's effect on us.

As we approach Christmas, it's good to remember why Jesus was Born.

Jesus Christ's birth, prophesied by Isaiah, was divinely mortal. Conceived by the Holy Spirit, he was a child of the heavenly Father and a human mother, and nurtured in Mary's womb. Through this miracle, the reality of Immanuel, God with us, was fulfilled (see Isaiah 7:14).

If you believe Jesus was ONLY a man, you are mistaken. If you think of him as ONLY God, you are off-track. Jesus IS God who became human so that you can know him personally. He IS God with us, and his constant, divine presence is forever, always with you, no matter how alone you may feel.

The Son of God did not come to establish a nostalgic family-oriented, commercially successful holiday.

Christmas began with a present from God to His sin-damaged world.

The masterpiece of God's human creation, marred by turning away from Him, can be restored when we give our hearts to Christ.

    Jason & I have been super busy (good busy) these last couple weeks. 

    Jason's 30th birthday was November 30! We celebrated in Mississippi with our family after Thanksgiving dinner. I have a couple pics to share from that wonderful time. 

    I found this adorable"30 Sucks" idea on Pinterest. I was quite pleased with how it turned out. If anyone needs to know how to make it, please just leave a comment or message me & I will post a tutorial.
