home...

We were able to drive home today before the supposed "storm of the century" hits.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!~




{i saw this on a blog today, and i couldn't have said it better myself}


Jesus.


God's perfect gift to a humanity doomed to bondage. Sin. Evil. Themselves. He came...not just to stay a baby. That was only the start. He came to be a Savior. For a creation He loved dearly and who desperately needed saving. Not just for 'a creation' but for me. I was doomed to bondage. Sin. Evil. Myself. I desperately needed saving.

And He did it. He came. Gave up heaven and shrunk Himself to fit inside human skin. To die a horrific death so I could be free from bondage. Sin. Evil. Myself. To have friendship with God. So I could be a clean, pure daughter in right-standing before her Daddy. Forever.

That is the miracle we should be celebrating. What kind of God does this??? Not on a whim but as a result of an intricately, meticulously designed plan, one invented even before light appeared on the horizon of the universe and the first bite of the apple was taken.

Because He saw me. He saw you. And to Him, we were worth it.

"Long lay the world, in sin and error pining
Til He appeared, and the soul felt its worth..."

"A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks, a new and glorious morn..."

Oh, what an amazing day we are celebrating. What an amazing God. He came. "Immanuel." God with us. God with us still.

Dear Jennisa~

My name is Amy Lunde and I am doing some work with the Food Allergy Initiative (http://www.faiusa.org/) to bring awareness to more Wisconsinites and alert Senator Kohl of the fight many parents and children face against food allergies today.

I found your blog through a search and I am wondering if you or your kids have had any encounters with food allergies?

One of our goals is to find bloggers that might be sympathetic to the cause and willing to post about food allergies.

Would you be willing to make another post, talking about the challenges many children and parents face and also encouraging people to visit the FAI website and urge their congressman/woman to lend their voice to the cause?

I have some sample talking points/drafts I could share.

Please let me know. Thank you,
Amy Lunde
