Merry Christmas from the Potters

Merry Christmas!

This Advent season, I am focusing on light. There has been much darkness this past year in the world but Jesus brings light into this world. If we continue to search for light in the darkness, we will find the four virtues of Jesus which are hope, love, joy and peace. I hope you will be able to see the light in the darkness and find hope, love, joy and peace this season and all year through.

John 1:1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
The Potters

Big Bend of Texas!

For the first part of Thanksgiving break, we went down to the Big Bend area of Texas and camped. The weather was perfect. This area is near and dear to my heart, it's where I was born and raised for the first five years of my life. I love this area and love going back! We can't wait to go back again. You can't see all there is to see in one trip!

When we rolled into Alpine, there was an Art Fest going on and a parade! We walked around to see all the shops in downtown. We stopped for lunch and groceries and then headed to the camp site.

The campsite was nice and the views were awesome. Sunrise and sunset are the most beautiful time of day. Big Bend has the darkest skies and the most stars and shooting stars you have ever seen in your life. One night, one of the other campers had their telescope out and shared with us. We saw other galaxies and close ups of the stars. It reminded me of being a kid and looking through one of my parents' friend's telescope. It was a trip full of great memories and experiences that the girls won't forget.
