He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Christmas 07

wow! I cant believe that this year is almost over! whew! praise GOd!!
Christmas this year was very.....very.... relaxing, non overwhelming and simple.
It was great to just celebrate the birth of our Savior the same way we do every other day..GIving thanks. reading the word, spending time together as a family.. Due to the fact that we will be moving into our home soon, financially we just wasn't able to give to Kaiya ( or others) for Christmas this year..BUT the LORD in his goodness provided what he saw fit for kaiya to enjoy..We just want to thank the supporters who gave to our family this christmas season, so that our little girl could enjoy herself...( i will add pics later)

We started the morning off with prayer and a family devotion on the real meaning of christmas and then Kaiya prayed for all of us to remember the truth of God's word and for her great great granny to walk, move,& feel better( Kevin's mom-mom)
SOme of her favorite gifts were: Barbie Princess collection -car keys, wallet, cell phone, pretend money,ect... Kaiya enjoys ANY thing that is princess..she was just grinning from ear to ear when she opened this gift..
Another gift she REALLY enjoyed was an ANTIQUE MADELINE DOLL HOUSE ..thanks to one of our dear supporters..they passed this collectors item down to kaiya to enjoy for years to come..it came with a madeline doll, and all you could think of that is needed in a orphanage! she LOVED IT!!! we couldn't pull her away from it! so sweet!!!
lastly we want to thank great grandma for the computer! kaiya always wanted a pretend lap top...now we don't have to worry about my husband losing the rest of his nerves as kaiya ask can she play nick jr on his computer. :) ( FYI- kaiya spilled water on my husband MAC in july and fried his hard drive..God provided another shortly after that) yay for daddy that she has her own... at least for now...lol

kevin and I are thankful for our gifts this year..a new home, new neighbors, a precious daughter, and the deep deep love of JESUS..I pray your CHRISTMAS was as merry as ours!
