Christmas Christmas time is here :)

Hmmm.... technology is frustrating. 
Merry Christmas! We made music :) 
Beth and I recorded this one after her baby shower back in November. 
It's not your typical Christmas song - but we think it counts :) 
The Gray Havens are super cool and you should google them if you don't know about them.  

And now to jump back in time to Christmas (technically Thanksgiving) past.

This one I was sure was on the blog, but I couldn't find it.
Thanksgiving 2016, I believe, was when this was recorded.
We did this arrangement for the Christmas tea our church holds each year.

Beth: "Wow, look how short my hair is!" :P

I wonder if I could hit those high note better now....

Anyhow, for those of you who still check in on us, thank you, and have a very wonderful Christmas!

Raindrops on roses.. and spiderwebs

Going out to feed Bun and notice everything is so dewy and sparkly... so showering, school, and getting dressed is postponed and photography commences! 

Juniper enjoys sitting in her lettuce pot... but then the lettuce doesn't grow back.

When you feel like squealing when your pictures turn out just like you hoped, it seems necessary to share them. 😍😍😍

Why is Good Friday good?

  I like asking people to listen to this song, telling them it's from the perspective of a person from the bible, and then having them guess who it is. Not many do, but there are some good hints in the song.

I'll just tell you the answer though, its one of the thieves that was crucified with Jesus. 

But why is the song called "Revenge"?

And why do we call the day that our Savior was killed, good?

God created a perfect world for us to live, and from the beginning, we've been chosing our own way over His. 

We rebel, reject His design for us, seek after other things to fulfill our lives.

We turn our backs on our Creator, and what does He do to repay us?

What would a just judge do to lawbreakers? Give them the punishment they deserve.

"The wages of sin is death"
(Romans 6:23a)

And not just physical death, but spiritual death, separation from God.

That's what we deserve.

That's what we should receive as retribution.

But the "revenge" for our rebellion does not have to fall on us.

God is not only holy, and perfect, and just. He is loving, and merciful, even when we are far from deserving it.

He chose the only One who could stand in our place, a human, like us, yet sinless, and perfect. His Son, Jesus Christ. 

Jesus took our punishment. The wrath of God was poured out on Him, instead of us.

That dark day, when an innocent Man bore the sins of the world, is now a day that means hope and forgiveness. 

"So I stopped for a moment to look at the Son
Dying today
That's when the irony hit me
That this was REVENGE
That love had descended
And stolen our pain away"

As we go into this Easter weekend, lets take time to think about the wonderful, good gift our Savior provided for us. That the revenge we should have received fell on the shoulders of another, allowing us to join Him in Paradise for eternity.

Hello there earthlings. 😏

Seriously, it's been way too long since a real blog post with like, words.
