Merry Christmas Sweet Friends!

Merry Christmas from the Crawfords!

Merry Christmas to all you sweet, precious ladies and friends across blog land! I apologize for being so quiet here lately. It’s simply a busy, full life I live, and blogging has had to take a back seat for a time. Our family is doing very well, and the Lord has brought so much good to us this year through healing of relationships, a new grand baby, some new business ventures, and just a constant reminder of His love and mercy in the details of life.

I want to commit to writing more in the new year so I hope you’ll stay with me and comment so I’ll know you’re there.

And I want to encourage you, no matter where you are, or what you are going through, that we serve a God who is for us and is faithful to be working in us to bring about, more and more, the image of His Son.

My heart is so very full this Christmas season as we celebrate the whole reason for living–and dying. Jesus Christ rules over all creation. Praise His holy name!

    What a beautiful family you have!! I so look forward to more of your posts this next year! They are always filled with encouragement and challenges! Maybe you could write on how you stay calm and patient while training the kids? Just an idea, something I struggle with daily! Thanks again for this blog!!

    • Thank you, Sarah! And thanks for the topic ideas. That always helps as I contemplate writing ideas. Although, I may not be the one equipped to write about “staying calm and patient while training the kids.” 🙂

    God bless you, Kelly! May the Lord bless your Beautiful family in 2018. You truly are a precious example of a godly woman, and I personally thank you for that! Humbly yours…
    P.S. my daughter and I recently purchased a cutting board from you. My family loves it!!!

    Merry Christmas, Kelly, to you and your beautiful family! I am not always consistent in reading blogs I follow because sometimes it “…has to take a back seat for a while.” So thanks for keeping it real and for your example of, when necessary, saying no to a good thing so you can say yes to the better thing. Sending love from Kansas.

    What a wonderful picture of you and your family. I know you are very proud of them.

    You do what you have to do to make it work for you.

    May GOD Bless you all with a Healthy, Happy 2018.

    May the Lord continue to bless you in every area of your life Kelly. I am always pleased to get the email showing you’ve posted something, but also understand you have a full life and don’t have expectations for you to spend it touching base every minute ; ) Your wisdom and Godly influence is consistently timely and so appreciated.

    A lovely post, and I totally understand limited time for writing — it’s all I can do to churn out one post a month anymore for my music blog, and I don’t have nearly as big a family as you have!

    Write when you can, and I’ll enjoy reading. 🙂

    Glad for your report of the healing of relationships. May the Lord continue to richly bless you and your family in 2018.

    • Thank you so much, sweet friend, and another of my longest-time blogging friends. So amazing how the Lord has allowed me to meet such sweet people along the journey, never possible before the Internet. Happy New Year to you!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!
    You have been an encouragement in my life and God has used you to teach me some important stuff! I’m glad to hear you plan to make an effort to continue writing content.
    Enjoy that sweet grand baby and happy new year to you. 🙂

    Merry Christmas, Kelly! I’m looking forward to seeing more of your posts! They’ve been such an encouragement to me! Most of the time I feel very alone in living out my biblical convictions, and your posts have reminded me that I’m not alone. I hope you and your family have a very blessed 2018!
