  1. Beautiful… just beautiful… So touching and deep and profound.

    I have been pondering this in my heart today. It ties in so beautifully with a post I’m working on, so I’m linking to this!

    Btw, your John 10:10 link isn’t working. Just a heads up. 🙂

    A blessed Christmas to you, sweet Lisa Jo!

  2. Lisa-Jo,

    I have loved your Christmas series….thank you! I have discovered with a greater fierceness this year than ever before that I want MORE….but it isn’t stuff. I want more of Him and all that that means.

    May the peace of Christ be all of ours……


  3. Thank you for reminding us of what Christmas is all about–One who would stop at nothing to give us everything we need. Love you, beautiful daughter of His & friend of mine,

  4. Lisa-Jo that was beautiful. Thank you. My birth was 19 years ago on Christmas Eve. I praise the Lord for that. Oh, how he carries us even after our birth…

  5. Thanks Lisa-Jo! This is beautiful because it is so true…I took a break from listening to Tim Keller’s sermons on ‘the Prodigal God’ to read this and oh how we find Him as Father and Son the same…giving His life that we might live…

    Trust you had a blessed Christmas with your precious family:) hugs:)
