Glimpses of Life

A few recent pictures of life at our house....
Packing, and more packing.
We sold our place the beginning of December and are busy packing up everything to move in a just a few weeks.

We are also planning my sister Ana's wedding.  Here she is discussing ideas for flowers with the friends who will be making the bouquets etc. =) 

We really enjoyed watching the Christmas concert from John MacArthur's church in California via live-stream this past Sunday evening.  It was about 2 hours long and was amazing!!

It's been so cold lately, but the frosty designs on the windows sure are pretty.

Christmas Eve we all participated in the 12 Voices of Christmas service at church, which we enjoyed!

A happy sister texting back and forth with her guy. =)

A slice of the Lime Cheese Cake Ana made, which we ate before watching It's a Wonderful Life together. =)

"Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!" 
- 2 Corinthians 9:15

~ Amid all the things and activities of life the best gift is the gift of salvation! ~

Greetings from Los Angeles! I am a member of Grace Church and it's a delight to see that our concerts are seen and enjoyed from far away. Have you ever visited our church? I am a regular reader of your blog and enjoy it very much. Best wishes for your upcoming move and your sweet sister's wedding.

What fun to hear from you! No, we've not visited your church, although we would like to someday. We listen to the Sunday evening service via live stream most Sundays and are really thankful for it. I grew up listening to Pastor MacArthur's teaching, so his voice teaching the Bible is part of my memories from when I was young all the way to now. =)
