Dec 24, 2016

1. PATIENCE Psalm 27:14 “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” Being a parent means you will have to be patient but during Christmas season our girls have to be patient too… Practicing such immense self-control as the gifts start piling up under the tree.
