Worthy is the Lord!

God is at work in me.
As I look around, and am experiencing different things, God is revealing to me the depravity of man. Man's sinful behavior is disgusting. It hurts God to see what He has created sin against Him. Our sin hurts God, no matter what kind of sin it is. My purpose here is to glorify God, to please Him. He loved me first, He Gave his son for me, He has the same love for me that He has for His son, it is equal love... I can't even fathom that. This is why I choose to follow Christ, not because I first loved Him, but because He first loved me. I see how my sin hurts God. Why do we choose to do things when the outcome does not glorify Him. In everything I do, I desire to glorify my Heavenly Father. This desire comes from Christ's life being produced in me. Without Christ I am nothing. Within myself there is nothing good I can do, but by the grace of God through the Holy Spirit's work in my life is it at all possible to please God.

I had a South African Christmas this year, it was hot, yet delightful. We opened our Stockings on Christmas Eve morning, and our presents that night. I felt a part of the family, we had a blast!!!

I got Heather a Kitchen scale because here they measure everything, and we hardly know what to do with out a scale.

Emily and Abby were also very excited about Christmas, they got lots of presents from grandparents and different people from the states, so they were a bit spoiled this year.

On Christmas Eve I got to cook all day it was fun, and I was definitely in my element and felt right at home. Heather likes it when I cook.

I also got packages from my family, so that was nice, I even got to open some of them on Skype on the web camera for them so they even got to watch me open the presents they got for me. It was a blessing!
