Merry Christmas

Here is what our Christmas card looked like for those who have yet to receive it, or just didn't cause we ran out of cards (sorry):


...the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord...

“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

- Luke 2

Dear Family and Friends, Christmas 2008

We want to thank God for all the incredible blessings He has given us, mainly His Son, and you all. If you have received this today, know that we love you very much.

It may be that there are some of you who might not know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord and we want to encourage you to consider what the Bible calls "of first importance". That is, "That Christ died for our sins,... that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day". He promises eternal life and forgiveness of sins to all those who repent of their sins and place their faith in Him. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life"; "God...now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness"; "God demonstrates His own love towards us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us".

Thank you again to all who gave to us and prayed for us through our recent trial.

We love you! Merry Christmas!

p.s. My favorite Christmas blog post is still Merry Christmas! (The gift of Christian Heritage,...the reason for the season) by my buddy Junior. Check it out.

p.p.s. Kenya got to open one present on Christmas Eve and she picked the Kid Tough Digital Camera that Vanessa and I got her. She is just like her Mom, in that she can take over 140 pictures in just hours! And she is like Destinee and all her girly teenage friends, in that most of the pictures are of herself!

Here is a collage of some of the "better" pics she took of our Christmas Eve:



p.p.p.s. Kenya wants to tell you all Merry Christmas!




Soli Deo Gloria!
