encouragement, forgiveness and lots of love. 

Which reminds me of a great line from the movie

Les Miserables, “To love, is to see the face of God.”

Spending time with our children and grandchildren

is our favorite gift. We have so much to celebrate.

…faith…family…friends…

And as 2012 comes to a close, we are grateful for a living

Savior, who is with us. Who forgives us. His perfect plans are

unfolding. “All authority in heaven and earth has been

given to Him…John 17 :2  We can trust Him. For, God is ‘

reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting

men’s sins against them’…2 Corinthians 5:19. In the days to

come may His Glory, illuminate the lives of those who love

Him and shine brightly. That those in darkness, will be

drawn into the beautiful light of His love and embrace

His Truth.
