DISCLAIMER . . . if you usually receive a CHRISTmas card from us, this is the picture AND letter you will receive . . . !! ♥
"JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON"
... a saying I have ALWAYS loved, but this year, it takes on a special meaning, and is more real than ever before. This year, as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we will be sad for us, but joyful in the fact that Rick will be celebrating Christmas together with the ONE who made Christmas possible! Though our world was rocked on November 5, we still CHOOSE to trust in the LORD with all our hearts. We received a letter in a sympathy card from a wonderful couple that we don't even know, in it was this phrase, "...Faith is not demanding what we want, it is trusting God's goodness in spite of life's tragedies!" That is the place you will find "us girls" at this Christmas season. Though we don't understand, we will continue to have faith, and trust in God's goodness - IN SPITE of life's tragedies. We had ordered these cards prior to Rick's "home-going" and have decided to use them anyway as the wish is still sincere and still from all of us - Rick is just greeting you from Heaven! His greatest wish for you this Christmas would be that when your days on earth are done he will be welcoming you into Heaven for all eternity with himself! Treasure the holidays this year with your loved ones, hold them just a little tighter, love them just a little bit more, and make sure that you know where you are headed when Jesus calls your name - Rick did which is why we can say with assurance,
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!
Love, Sheila, Tessa, Taya & Kajsa ♥
