As this Christmas season comes upon us I found this quote from Max Lucado that I love - "God became a man so we could trust him, became a sacrifice so we could know him, & defeated death so we could follow him."  May these words touch your heart in a deep and meaningful way this season as we celebrate our Savior's birth and His blessings in our lives.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Love always,
The Padilla Family
