We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! We decided to stay in Montgomery until tomorrow, when we will leave for sunny Florida.
We miss seeing our family and friends this holiday season, but everyone is welcome to join us in Florida!!
Quote for the day: “Christ was born in the first century, yet he belongs to all centuries. He was born a Jew, yet He belongs to all races. He was born in Bethlehem, yet He belongs to all countries.” – George W. Truett
And from our favorite Christmas show, Charlie Brown Christmas:
Charlie Brown finds himself depressed at Christmas time, searching for the true meaning of the holiday amidst the glitz and commercialism of the modern age. He finds his answer in the passage below:
“And there were in the same country shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them! And they were sore afraid … And the angel said unto them, “Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings o great joy, which shall be to all my people. For unto you a child is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ, the Lord.”
“And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, “Glory to God in the Highest, and on Earth peace, and good will toward men.”
“That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.” – Linus Van Pelt
Jonell, Dan, and Makena, Thanks for the email. That is what Christmas is all about.
We miss you all so much, but are looking forward to seeing you in another month.
We are still at Linda and Doug’s. Gary, Julie and Jas left a little while ago for home. They sure surprised us by driving here yesterday. Jas has to drive back to Des Moines tomorrow as she has to work tomorrow evening. We are going to go over to Kami and Paul’s in a little while and spend some time with all of them.
Love, Mom and Dad
