Merry Christmas 2013 & Happy New Year 2014...

Dear Family and Friends,                                     December 2013
...The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
                                                            Isaiah 7: 14b
She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,
because he will save his people from their sins.
Matthew 1: 21
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that
whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3: 16
We join the angels who praised God when they announced the birth of Jesus to the shepherds.  It was good news then and it is still good news today – for those who have faith and believe.  It is the greatest gift ever given and God offers it to everyone.  Christ came to earth to atone for sin – love truly amazing.

New tie from the sons...
February 8th found us celebrating John’s 70th birthday with our annual trip to Richmond, VA.  There we had the privilege of being with our son John’s family while he and Diane participated with other Chick-fil-a operators at their annual seminar.  We shuttled for school, games, activities and kept everybody fed.   We had a terrific time.(ages in Feb.)
