Merriest Christmas to you!

Wednesday, December 25

"The Savior- yes, the Messiah, the Lord- has been born today!" 
Luke 2:11

the savior that 
covers us in grace,
bestows mercy,
transforms us,
every day and forever. 

Today as Kevin and I lay in bed, I was overcome with emotion
that this baby,
this Jesus,
came as a Savior.
and has SAVED me from
death and destruction,
and this year, from fear and anxiety. 

Tears streamed down my face as the magnitude hit me.
This little baby, 
so brave and so bold,
proclaimed Peace for us all.

He is the Prince of Peace! 
Amen and Hallelujah! 
Jesus is the BEST gift of them all:) 

I hope you have the merriest of days dear friends. 

Merry Christmas,
love…The Cooks

  14. Love the photo play-by-play :). I was feeling pretty overwhelmed with it as well, but after I was being a brat about it. We went to midnight mass this year and I was so incredibly tired, toying with the idea of skipping. But then like you, I started thinking of how I felt in comparison to the sacrifice and felt so embarrassed by the stroke of Eve inside me.
