"Merry Christmas "

If I had a wish  of just one, two or three; I think this is what I would want them to be.

I would for sure wish for peace on earth and for each to have a special friend, just like you and me.

I would wish for days gone by where our heroes were the good guys and we knew they'd always  win.

I would wish for the joy of Christmas to return, to the way we felt at the tender age of three.

Luke 2:1.  And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. 2. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)  3. And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.   4. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)  5. To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.  6. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.  8. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.  9. 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.  10. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  11. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.  12. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  13. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,  14. Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

God has blessed us with a great family.  We have a son and a daughter that we are so proud of.  They married the nicest folks which gives us another son and daughter.  Then they have OUR grandkids.  Some of you do really have good kids and so on but Regina and I have the best that folks can have.  Well, you get the picture.  I'll even listen to you whine and carry on about how yours are the best but this is our story and we're sticking to it.  We have a serious but Spiritually rewarding job and we are planted by God into a ministry here in Howell Baptist Association.  We have never felt more in God's will than we do now! 

We love you and May God Really Bless You!   Have A Very Blessed Christmas and A Christian New Year!
