A Cowboy Christmas

Not only did we celebrate Christmas with family this past weekend, but we also celebrated with our church family.  The theme was a "Cowboy Christmas".  I must say, when I walked into the room, I didn't expect everything to be so beautiful.  Everyone that decorated really out did themselves.  The pictures really don't do it justice.  There was tons of food, singing and fellowship. 

Keston and Jordan

The adorable Christmas tree {and one hunka-hunka bass guitarist}

Delicious food

Some of the decorations {the whole room was decorated like an old western town}

During one of the songs, snow came down {way cool}

One of the songs that was sung is one of my favorite Christmas songs of all time, "Mary Did You Know".  The cliche "He's the reason for season" is over used, but so true. Because of the perfect gift that was given to us, we can celebrate and worship in freedom.  So as you sit around with your family and celebrate this Christmas season, don't concentrate so much on the hustle and bustle, but remember what this holiday is all about...celebrate the life that gives us eternal life!

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy
Is Lord of all creation?

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy
Will one day rule the nations?

Did you know that your Baby Boy
Is Heaven's Perfect Lamb?

This sleeping Child you're holding
Is the Great I Am!



  1. The last verse of that song just sends shivers down my spine.. especially being the momma to a baby boy! So wonderful we have been given Christ! Yes! Michigan has Super Targets which = bigger and better! Ha! : ) Love that your blogging, and yes, we are loving our time here! Did my Christmas card make it to you okay? Right address?
