Christmas/New Year's End Gift

As another year draws to a close, in the life of this Pastor there is the little matter of using my professional reimbursement. This year is no different!

This morning Lynn and I drove to Best Buy and purchased an Ipad Air for my ministry work. I'm very excited to have this tool and am going to be working to intergrate it more fully into my everyday ministry.

I'm so thamful for a wife and ministry partner who is willing to push me to use technology to the fullest extent to help me magnify my Savior!

Christmas 2013 - An Adventure!

Around our house when the entire group gets together it is always an adventure and this year was no different!

Everyone arrived on the 23rd and that in and of its self was a bit of a surprise, Lynn and I had not expected everyone that day but with quick work the house was readied, beds were made and pizza ordered for supper!

When I got up on the 24th I found Amy and Nate already awake and Amy in terrible pain! After much discussion and consternation the decision was made to take Amy to the ER! Diagnosis .... Gall Stones!!! Most of us envisioned our Christmas eve and Christmas day spent in the hospital as Amy revcovered from surgery! But it was not to be!

After much consultation and really good pain killers ... Amy was sent home and after a few hours she felt much better! Christmas was right back on schedule!

Thankful that Amy is feeling better and we all know it is just a matter of time before she will be having surgery but for now .... Merry Christmas to all and to all GOOD HEALTH!

Christmas Adam???

What an incredible surprise ... all of the kids (Daniel, Amy, Philip & Susan), spouses and grand-kids showed showed up on Monday afternoon and evening for our family Christmas. this was about 24 early which was a great surprise!

Pizza was eaten, games were played and after the littles had gone to bed ... gifts were wrapped.

Daniel informed us that the 23rd of December is Christmas Adam because everyone knows that Adam comes before Eve (Christmas Eve)!!! 

There is nothing like having everyone together at Christmas!

"Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words!" 2 Cor. 9:15

Not A Lot To Say ......

Wow! When is the last time you heard a preacher say they didn't have a lot to say!!!

As always very busy this time of year .... can't even find time for coffee with friends! That is flat being too busy! But we are looking forward to having everyone home for Christmas. Maybe getting a chance to catch our breath!

Hunting season has been a bust, so far, this year with me driving a bus route full time it makes every early morning and late afternoon activities tough. Nevertheless, I'm planning on hunting the late muzzle-loader season which falls during Christmas break! Archery season will be open at the same time ... looking to harvest a couple of deer in the next few weeks.

More Later .... I Promise!
