Faith Spilling Over… Into Everyday Life

Merry Christmas {The Best of Faith Spilling Over}


Advent Christmas Card Blog

Merry Christmas, friends! I hope and pray that you’ll enjoy a blessed holiday season with family and friends. May you find moments to stop, breath deep, and savor the wonder of Christ’s coming. If the holidays bring on loneliness or stress for you, may the presence of the Holy Spirit bring special comfort and joy.

I’ll be taking a blogging break to enjoy family time while my kids have vacation from school. We’re all excited to celebrate with both of my parents, my brothers, and their families for the first time in many years.

Thank you for reading my blog. I so appreciate the friends and community I’ve found in you. I pray that the day to day reality of Emmanuel will become more real to us in 2016.

Love, Betsy

I’ll start regular posting again on January 1st. Until then, here’s some of the best of Faith Spilling Over from 2015:

I want to enjoy the everyday life God is giving me as best I can, even when the road gets bumpy. I love having fun with my teenagers, learning almost anything, and drinking dark roast coffee with my friends.
