Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:5 NKJV
Christmas Greetings from the Frasers. So grateful for our Savior’s coming! Glory to God in the highest!
And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. “For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. “And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” Luke 2:7-14 NKJV
The warm season has long come and gone here in Minnesota…but it was wonderful and busy and so instead of skipping out on this post here are a few of the highlights!
At some time or another all five siblings served at camp…never all of us at once, though.
Abby went to New Mexico for a couple of weeks to volunteer at a camp down there. A lot of the scenery in the southwest definitely looks different than Minnesota!
Somewhere in between all of that we were involved with what has become an annual double-VBS week for us…one in the afternoon on the reservation and then helping with one in the evening in town. We are grateful that our home church in Illinois comes each summer to serve in this way! No picture, but you can imagine children smiling and laughing and learning about Jesus.
August brought the Lake Itasca Family Music Festival. Mark your calendars for next year…the first full weekend in August.
Every year we get to sing and share the gospel at our county fair.
We traveled out to South Dakota to sing for a Native evangelism conference.
Our garden is a great place to watch God’s creation and just enjoy the beauty in small things.
Family camp in Iowa was such a great week for us. Getting to hear so many good, challenging messages and spending time with encouraging believers always helps sharpen our perspective and energizes our desire to grow.
One part of summer that changes every single night are the incredible sunsets we get to witness.
“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons…” Daniel 2:20-21 NKJV
