Merry Christmas


Merry Christmas to each of you! I hope you all have a wonderful day with family or friends. Regardless of the gifts under the tree, we are most blessed by that gift in the manger!

Andy - we miss you all the time but even more at Christmas. I hope you have a good day with your friends and I hope the army feeds you well today! Love you lots!

What a beautiful picture!

I pray that the Holy Spirit, the Great Comforter, will be with you and yours as you are apart. It's never easy. We are amazed at the grace of God this week as He's graced us with a short visit.

Continue to pray for so many of our young Americans as they're separated from family this week. Pray for God's presence in their lives. Amen.

Love,
Melinda

Thinking of you as Andy is far away. This mom's heart knows that things just aren't complete when we aren't all together. May the Lord fill you with his peace and joy trusting Andy is doing well and will be sharing Christmas with you as he celebrates our Lord.

Love to you Mari.

Mari,

I did send Andy a Christmas card and he let me know that he had received it. How nice that I could send your son a card. I appreciate your sharing his address.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, my friend. All the blessings of the season to you and yours.

Blessings,
