I wish for you and your family a warm, loving, enchanting Christmas.


Christmas Tree with Red and Green Ornaments


In our busy culture, it can be really hard to slow down enough to capture the quiet joys of the holiday.

But just like the King of Kings who came as a newborn baby in an unknown, ancient town, the beauty and delight of Christmas is really found in a quiet place, hidden among the loud shouts and bright lights that call out for our attention.

It’s found in the wonder and smile of a child who is amazed at the magic of a man in a red suit.

It’s found in the evenings, when lights from the Christmas tree bathe your home in a warm glow.

But most of all, the real delight of Christmas is found in the message announced by the angel:[pullquote width=”300″ float=”left”]”I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord”[/pullquote]




Merry Christmas to you and yours, and may you find hope in the message of the angel.  It was not just for the shepherds on that night over 2000 years ago, but also for you and everyone you know and love.  It is good news of great joy.
