Christmas Blessings from Georgia Jan!
2008 has been an amazing year of blessings for our family with TWO new members added! First, a precious daughter-in-love back in June. She is the prayed-for wife of my youngest son (the gorgeous brunette on the far right). A home girl - the best!!! Then on a hot Sunday afternoon in August, God blessed our lives with Zeke (Ezekiel), that precious m-i-r-a-c-l-e bundle, shown here in the safe arms of his granddaddy!
The Joy of Christmas...
Come Christmastime, the treasured gifts are never made of gold. Come Christmastime the best bequests are actually quite "old."
A card arriving from afar with news of something sweet,
a phone call with a greeting from friends just down the street.
A blog post from a siesta with a message from her heart.
Proceeds from a cookbook in which we took a part
to bring fresh water to a land our eyes may never see,
while praying that the Living Water will truly set them free.
The joy of meeting face to face in the August Texas heat,
the event entitled Siesta Fiesta - we couldn't wait to meet!
We are believers in this cyberspace who love the Word of God,
we keep in touch, we love and pray, and read each other's blogs!
May you find some time this Christmas to meditate and pray,
and thank the Heavenly Father for the gifts He sends your way.
The gifts of hope and peace and salvation through His Son,
will warm your hearts and keep you close until the victory's won.
The best of Christmastime is often tried and true,
the prayers and love down in my heart are what I send to you.
Much Love,
Georgia Jan

Beautiful picture of your family!
And thanks for sharing your poem...much love to you, too.
I added Twinkle with Glisten...just didn't have the heart to separate them! I'm linking Glisten to my heartfelt desire for some snow this winter.

Georgia Jan!! How are doing?? It's Brittney from our Siesta Conference. We first met at the Airport on our way to Atlanta. I hope you remember me....I have thought about you often and love that I've finally found you on the blogging world. I just loved your post. I just wrote something on my blog too Christmas Blessings and how I the greatest blessing of mine came from a four yera old child. Things have been crazy as ever around here...but now I've got a few mintues to write and check in with everyone. Hope all is well and I can't wait to hear from you! Check out my blog too for a great story on the lessons learned from a four year old!!!

Beautiful Christmas photo. I especially like how you call your daughter-in-law, your daughter-in-love. I hope my boys have a Mom-in-love like that one day!!
Hope to see you in January at the concert.
