Beautiful Work

Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands…. Psalm 90:17a

Moving to Facebook December 17, 2009

Well everyone, it seems that us Beautiful Workers have lost our steam for writing posts. (I’m sure you noticed). We don’t want to abandon the community that Beautiful Work has created, but with two newborns arriving to half our troops within a month (me and Kate) and general family busyness, we needed to adjust the time commitment. So, we are moving to Facebook for a more interactive discussion of all things WHAM. We are really excited about this because it will be an easy way to hear from all the participants of this blog, writers and readers.

Click here or contact one of us and we’ll get you officially “invited”.  :-)

See you there, and thanks for being along for this ride!

Andie is currently away awaiting the final steps to adopt their son.  They are with him and would just appreciate prayer as they wait for all the paper work.  We are all so excited to meet this new addition!  More news to come…

This week we are suppose to be sharing special things we are doing to celebrate Christmas this year.  This year for us the month of December will include celebrating a very special wedding, hosting out of town guests, showers and then hosting my parents for Christmas.  We are so excited!!

Our special Christmas tradition usually falls on Christmas eve.  This year we will attend church and then come home to meet my parents (who will hopefully get in on time).  During our Christmas eve meal we usually read through different passages of the Christmas story that will correspond to different course of the meal.  Like during appetizers we will read about John the Baptist who was the forerunner to Christ.  This year we are eating fish tacos and salad.  After dinner the girls re-enact the Christmas story and then we open pj’s and head to bed.  We try and keep the night fun and yet reflective.  We will sing songs and try to keep things moving with toddlers at the table :)

What things are you doing??
