(children from the House of Hope orphanage in Kenya)

"Christ has no body on earth but yours,
no hands but yours,
no feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which
Christ's compassion for the world is to look out;
yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good;
and yours are the hands with which he is to bless us now."
-Saint Teresa

Christmas Month

"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

Mike and I put up our first Christmas tree together.  There is snow expected for this weekend.  I have already wrapped a few gifts.  Christmas season is here, and this verse opens up my heart to what we are celebrating this time of year.  The names given to that tiny baby that was born thousands of years ago fill me with awe and hope.  Wonderful Counselor.  Mighty God.  Everlasting Father.  Prince of Peace.  Let the celebrating begin!
