Thanks to a package that Eli received in the mail from his new friend, Jen, we had all of the ingredients to bake a “Happy Birthday Jesus” cake. It’s even Eli’s favorite, vanilla cake and vanilla frosting. The candles are in honor of the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School.
As we celebrate the birth or our Savior, we also remember the suffering that He endured on our behalf. AND we rejoice in His victory over death!
Jesus said, “I tell you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
We pray for the families of Sandy Hook Elementary. I wish that they could feel the hugs and love that I know so many want to extend to them today. We pray that God will strengthen and sustain them.
