This is Day 8 of our 12 Days of Christmas on YouTube. I think you are going to like today's Christmas song.
Also, last night we posted a short Christmas Sunday service from Odie's house.
Thursday we sent out our snail mail Christmas Newsletter and we want you to able to see that as well. This newsletter serves as our Christmas card too.
This should lead you to the PDF of the Newsletter.
I will post the text of the Newsletter below as well. Thank you for stopping by.
It has been a year of twists, turns and uncertainty for everyone. For most of us, nothing is more fearful than the thing that is unknown. If we can see the way, perceive the path and know the next variable, we somehow think we can handle the situation better. This year has not lent itself to “seeing”, “perceiving” or “knowing” at all.
Yet, it is not only coronavirus and COVID 19. This year has been full of political disagreement, economic upheaval, racial injustices, anger, violence, confusion and hate, hate, hate!
Wow! What a year! AND it shows no sign of stopping or even slowing down.
Some of you have suffered horrible losses, more of you have endured incredible sickness, others have held on tightly for the whole unbelievable ride. Yet, here we are, hanging on, still upright and moving forward by God’s strength! God is truly our refuge in this dreadful storm!
Thank God for His grace. Thank God for His mercy. Thank God for His love. Thank God for His compassion, Thank God for His provision. Thank God for His protection.
In my mind, because of all this, 2020 has been an amazing year. In all of the difficulty,we have been blessed beyond measure, because we are still standing in His grace.
Changes in scheduling due to COVID caused us to miss seeing a lot of you this year. We hate that! Thank you for praying for us. Thank you for checking on us. Thank you for encouraging us. We look forward to seeing you in 2021 according to His will. Until then, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy NewYear!
