“Never forget what Jesus did for you. Never take lightly what it cost Him. And never assume that if it cost Him His very life, that it won't also cost you yours.”

Merry Christmas!

“How many observe Christ's birthday! How few, His precepts!” 

- Benjamin Franklin

Merry, merry Christmas to all my wonderful friends. Praying you all have a very, very special day celebrating Christ and the amazing miracle of His birth! 

Here's some pictures from our Christmas morning :)

It was officially determined that my future home is going to be western brown with cobalt blue accents!! My mama found these amazing glass cups with horses etched on them in my favorite color. They are now in our china closet awaiting the day I start my own family. 

Another gift for the hope chest!! That same beautiful color...this time combined with my other passion...music!

Jess and I got Mom a calendar with pictures of all the horses!! I love it :) And, of course, Annie had to come in and join the celebration!

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head:
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men."

Till, ringing singing, on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime,
Of peace on earth, good will to men!
