Merry Christmas from the Israel Prayer Garden

Prayer Garden in the Snow“Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord:  though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be like crimson, they shall be as wool.”  

Isaiah  1:18

As the year draws quickly to a close, we want to thank you all for being a part of the vision that is the Israel Prayer Garden here in Corinth, Texas.  Like most years, 2012 was full of tests and trials, answered prayers, bittersweet farewells, prophetic revelations and faith-building opportunities.

Last month, my son, Isaac, told me he was praying for a white Christmas.  While snow isn’t too unusual here in North Texas, we don’t often see it fall on Christmas.  And yet, right around noon today, snow began to fall.  With camera in hand, I bundled up and went to the prayer garden to take pictures.  Here, then, is my pictorial Christmas post, a reminder that whether we have a white Christmas or not, our sins can all be white as snow!

Merry Christmas!
