Before I begin to pratter - Merry, Merry Christmas to you!!! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas day filled with lots of family/friends, love, and Jesus!
Now then - We found ourselves at M & A Studios a few weeks ago for a family photo, finally, finally using a gift certificate we were generously given in Christmas of 2012. (I know, our punctuality game is strong with a capital S.) The certificate was for a studio session and some prints of the product after and, I’ll be honest, I prepared myself for the worst. When I think of in-studio photography sessions, my mind brings me back to 1990… …when sponge-painted backgrounds married with my mom’s infatuation with hair spray plus lotsa back-combing were a thing of desire. I’ll let you guess which electric shock victim was me. And then let’s all take a moment of silence to thank the Lord that that madness is passed us.
Back to our session though, I was very pleasantly surprised when the photographer worked his magic and kept 1990 in the twentieth century.
As you can tell, I even added a few flakes and glitter here and there and sequentially had our Christmas cards printed and sent out. So, consider yourself a virtual recipient! If stamps weren’t killer when it comes to snail mail these days, I’d have sent out a hundred more to you, and you, and you too!
More importantly though…
Happy second day of Christmas! We are fighting colds and fevers after a wonderful Christmas Day which is all so fun but leaves me wishing for the turtle doves instead. I hope you are all faring much better and enjoying this wonderful season.
Thanks be to God for sending His Son to save us from ourselves! The Christ is born! Hallelujah!
