Reflections on Christmas

What a wonderful Christmas I had! Family, Friends, and Food! This Christmas Eve we spent at my parents house and we opened our Secret Santa Gifts from one another and ate some delicious Arroz con Pollo! And then in the evening Richard, Karis, my parents and I attended New Life Fellowships Christmas Eve Candlelight service. On Christmas morning Richard, Karis and I opened gifts, ate breakfast, spent the day together and went over to Veronica's new house for Christmas Dinner with family and friends.

As I reflect on this Christmas season all I can say is that God is so generous and loving. I've had a rough couple of years as I've had to face some challenging situations. But the Lord has blessed me with an amazing husband, a beautiful daughter, and great family and friends.

It has been tough, financially, recently because I had lost my job 3 months into my pregnancy and haven't been able to obtain employment since then. We have had to learn to adjust to living on one income while expecting an additional member to our little family. But in the midst of it all, God has been teaching us to re-prioritize, get organized and plan ahead. All while blessing us with a great Christmas of giving and receiving gifts. I am so thankful for the blessed people in our church. Many have given us Christmas wishes, delicious Christmas treats, gifts for Karis and for Richard and I. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Here are some pictures from this past Christmas season:

  1. Great pics Rosie! Karis is such a cutie. I definitely can relate to what you're saying with being pregnant, living off of one income, and trying to make ends meet. It has been tough for us as well but God has always been faithful so we can't ask for anything more. :) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  2. Thanks Fannie. I'm so excited for you and Mike. What a life changing experience having a baby is. So much joy, wonder and excitement! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, Mike and the little man! :)
