Merry Christmas from the Shulls!

It’s one of my favorite days of the year…Christmas Eve Eve (or Christmas Adam as many of you like to say).  Last night, we celebrated Christmas with my family and then today, Andrew’s family arrives for the fun.  From my home to yours, we’re wishing you a very Merry Christmas.  My prayer this morning is that if you don’t know the real reason why we celebrate…the joy, peace, love and salvation that comes from having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, that you’ll pray about that today.  Please know that you can always email me about it too and you can read my post on Finding Faith HERE.

For unto 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.  Isaiah 9:6

Our Christmas card this year…

The front.

The back.

We included a birth announcement along with our cards.  The front.

The back.

Many thanks to my talented friends who bless my family each year with amazing cards and photographs.  Thank you Andrea and Narci for being a part of our family’s Christmas. xo

Merry Christmas friends.  Sending so much love from my family to yours.

    Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family. Hope that it is magical and filled with lots of joy, laughter and fun. Also, not sure if others are having this issue or not, but some of your recent posts from the last two days are not always showing up on your website. Just thought you should know.

    Your card brought tears to my eyes. The fact that a precious girl from China, who may never have known about Jesus… will grow up knowing who HE is… what an amazing gift! All because you chose to follow God’s will for your family. You have a beautiful family and I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
