Christmas Continues

On December 22, we were at church at Lavon Assembly of God in Lavon, TX.  They greatly blessed our family.  Grace would’ve said that the first blessing is that we didn’t preach or say anything at all, which means that she didn’t have to hear a sermon she’s heard before.  Their kids and youth did a play that morning.  When they were finished, they called us up on the stage.  Grace said that she thought they would just pray for us.  They gave us gift after gift.  I even got an iPad mini, which I can’t tell you how much I’ve used since.  It was amazing!  Then, they gave us a personal offering.  Wow!

This past Tuesday, we drove over to North Richland Hills to LifeChurch because a girls’ class had gotten gifts for Grace for Christmas.  They asked me some things she liked, and they hit home runs with Grace: hoodies, craft things, a dry erase board, and then cash.

Grace with her dry erase board.  I didn't tell them she wanted one, but she said that she was so happy because she's wanted one for a long time.  I guess those girls know what a 12-year old likes.

We can never say thanks enough for people's generosity!

When we were at Lavon, I told them that when they bless my daughter, they bless me.  I’m glad that so many people love Grace and want to do such amazing things for her.  We have such an amazing support system – both in giving and in prayer, and we can never say thanks enough for that!
