We enjoyed bringing in the new year in a new way. We were invited by friends to a prayer and praise night in their home from 9 p.m. -12 midnight to begin the year with praise, thanksgiving, prayer, worship, and song. It was a wonderful way to reflect on 2009 and consider 2010.
I particularly liked the image of “white as snow” from Psalm 51 and Isaiah 1: “Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow” and “Though their sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow.”
With all the beautiful snow that has fallen this year already, it left a beautiful impression in my mind. To be whiter than snow! So thankful for Jesus’ blood that washes us and cleanses us from all our sin.
Here are a few pictures of some things we’ve enjoyed these last couple of weeks during our Christmas break.

Wishing you and your wonderful family a very happy 2010.
Thanks, Shelly! Yes, we were at HR Camp for several days with B's whole family. We had a lot of fun being in the snow and just relaxing. Happy New Year to you and your family, as well! I'm thankful for getting to know you better this year through this gift of blogging!
So fun! Looks like HR was a big hit and W & A are loving it more and more as they grow! Thanks for sharing…
Yes! To be white as snow from our black, black sins that stain–great reminder and mental image with the snow pics.
