We Are Fighting Back - Day 38

Decorating For Christmas

Thursday, December 19, 2019

Today is Day 38. Only 6 more days until Christmas. Early Christmas snow has beautifully adorned our campsite Christmas tree. Dear friends brought Christmas cheer to our hillside campsite with an amazing 15 foot fir tree. We have not found our decorations in the moving boxes yet, but Nicole created some beautiful handcarved and woodburned ornaments around the campfire using a homemade clothes hanger woodburner and pieces of firewood from one of our precious neighbors. She woodburned special to us Christmas phrases like, Emmanuel - God with us, Away in a manger, The Prince of Peace, Wise men seek Him, and Holly Jolly Christmas on them. She and Charles have been decorating the campsite with unique wood-burned plaques bearing inspirational messages like Keep the Faith, Trust In God, King of Kings, Merry Christmas, and For King and Croft to encourage and inspire us and our holiday guests. All of these creations will certainly become treasured tokens from our campsite Christmas in the years to come. Even though we would all rather be home for the holidays, we have made some special memories at our little campout and are doing remarkably well considering all that has happened. We remain thankful for all His many blessings on us. We have a beautiful starlight sky as a roof up above us. We have a good warm place to sleep. We have food on our table and shoes on our feet. He has given us His Love and a fine family. We are thankful for all His blessings on us and are able to keep on keeping on because His Grace is sufficient and we are living in the greatness of His Faithfulness. Thank you for your continued prayers and words of encouragement. Please pray for us as we continue to inventory our seized belongings. So much has been maliciously destroyed. Many of our special treasures are still being held hostage at the ranch. Pray everything will be returned soon and those who ordered and carried out this attack will be held fully and comprehensively liable for their actions. A free country cannot tolerate such maliciousness and hatefulness. On November 12th, they openly displayed their hatred for us. What if next week they decide to hate you? Liberty and justice are for all, or none have liberty and justice. Think about it...
