Warm Wishes

As the Christmas Season is very much upon us, I can't help but think of the wonderful family and friends we have been blessed with. From church friends, neighbors, co-workers and family members, our lives have been enriched. We thank you for the shoulders to cry on, the bouts of side-splitting laughter, and everything in between.

With the hustle and bustle that this time brings, I hope we all can take a moment and do as Mary did after the birth of her son. She "kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart." What a magical time His birth must have been. And here we are celebrating it year after year, that glorious night. The heavens opened and angels sang of the long awaited miracle. Shepherds gathered in awe. Tears of joy were surely wept. It was a long time ago in a land and time we don't fully understand, but the impact is the same. His birth made all our lives possible. His birth made our lives worth it.

May you all have a wonderful Christmas Day and may the knowledge of the Redeemer's birth burn within bringing everlasting joy.

All our love, Lora and David.
