Merry Christmas from the Smith’s – 2018

Remember, it is all fun and games until Santa checks the Naughty List. We hope you have been good this year! 

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.

– Isaiah 7:14

Immanuel means God With Us. Our prayer is a thankful prayer. God is always with us through the mountains and the valleys of life. We are thankful that God loves us so much that He wants to be with us. No matter how dark life seems at times, He is still as present during those days as He is on our brightest days. Look for God and you will find Him.

May the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ, surround you all the days of your life. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Matthew and Paige Christmas 2017

Though we meet struggles and hardships, God is the stronghold that keeps us afloat. Through Christ, we have the strength to stand when everything else around us is shaken.

God, thank you for the assurance, stability, grace, mercy, forgiveness, strength, peace, healing, and encouragement we have in you! Thank you for all you have done and blessed us with in 2017. All of it is possible because of your birth, death, and resurrection.

We wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
