Wonders of His Love

"Joy to the World" is one of our most favorite Christmas Songs. The lyric 'And Wonders of His love' really stood out to us this year as we watched our children grow. Our children are such a beautiful wonder of God's love! And they have such a way of pointing out ALL of the wonders of God's love that we "busy adults" fail to notice sometimes: The smell of the fresh air, the ice on the ground in the mornings, the birds, the stars, the bright blue sky, the moon, the sun, the wind blowing in the trees. This Christmas Season, stop and notice the WONDERS of His love! Merry Christmas, Love, The Chapman Family
This is a work in progress, but this is what I have so far for our Christmas card this year. No special photos, just snapshots from our day to day life. But, really, truly, honestly, THIS is life and THESE are the true wonders of HIS love.

We had the pleasure of going to see Camden in not one, but TWO Christmas programs this season. And since the second one was being televised, we had the chance to see that one twice, so make that THREE Christmas programs. One of the songs that they sang was our Church's up-beat version of 'Joy to the World' which has been stuck in my head ever since. And so many times I've sang the words not knowing what they really mean, but this time AND WONDERS OF HIS LOVE stood out to me. Maybe it's because the music pastor actually pointed to the kids and said "Look at THESE wonders of his love"... I was like... yeah... WOW. And was speechless.

Merry Christmas. We are celebrating with our family this year, and keeping things low-key. Camden and Ella are very excited for Santa, and Joe and I are excited for family time, and time together. To soak up the wonders of His love.
