Happy New Year

Happy New Year! We can’t believe that 2021 has come and gone and that now we are in 2022. We are so excited to see what this year will bring. 2021 has had its ups and downs, but we are so grateful for all the memories we have made. 

We are currently spending New Years with our family, New Years is a special holiday for the Japanese. We are grateful to have a family who we can celebrate with, looking towards the year to come. 

We wanted to post some bookish resolutions for this year. 

Riella- read one classic book a month and one book outside of her normal genres

Angeline- wants to write 100 reviews, create 50 quote graphics, and log all of her reading.

Mikayla – would love to read at least five classics in 2022

What are some of your bookish or regular resolutions? Excited to see what this year will bring for us.

Merry Christmas!

We wanted to wish everyone a very merry Christmas! We hope that everyone feels loved and special this holiday season, know that we greatly appreciate all who read our blog.

No matter what everyone is going through, we have reason to celebrate. Our King, Jesus, has come as a baby to save us from our sins. He lived as a man, fully God and fully man, and died on the cross for our sins. However He did not stay dead, he rose again on the third day defeating sin and paying our price. We can have hope and joy because of what Christ has done for us. This year has not been without its hardships, we have seen sickness, death, and rejoiced at new births and marriages. However throughout the trials and joys of life, we can rejoice and be at peace because of what Christ has done for us. This is why we celebrate Christmas, to remember our Savior who has come and made a way for us to be right with God. We pray that all would know the love of the Savior, His yoke is easy and His burden is light. He is calling you yet today.

Matthew 11: 28-30 (NIV)

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Romans 10:9-10 (NIV)

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
