    let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!"

"And this is the testimony: 
God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son." 
1 John 5:11
 "For in him we live and move and have our being... "
Acts 17:28a
 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

"But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman . . .
to redeem . . .  that we might receive adoption to sonship."

 "For the wages of sin is death, 
but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23

"Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. 
But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. 
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen." 
1 Timothy 1:15-17

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 
Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this." 
Isaiah 9:6-7
"No one is like you, LORD; you are great, 
and your name is mighty in power."
Jeremiah 9:6-7
 Thank you, Lord, for all you have done for us!

Such a wonderful post! Those scriptures in the middle of the photos are some beautiful passages. Very encouraging! I was greatly encouraged by Acts 17:28a and how short of a verse it is, but just how powerful it is at the same time. It truly is amazing to think, the Lord Jesus came to earth, born as a baby, born from a virgin, only to come to this world for one purpose. That one purpose being to show how much He truly loves His people. Just to come from heaven down to earth like that just to do the will of His Father, is truly astonishing. God's gift to us with salvation is the best gift a Father can give His children. What an AMAZING God we serve that he cares about us SO much.

You have such an beautiful family and are easy to capture, making any photographer get a great shot. Thank you again for asking me to take the photos. Although... I think there's a very important photo missing from these photos!!! ;) I think you know what I mean!!!!! You two really look so cute together! ;D

Merry Christmas to you and your sweet family!
