Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas to You!

Hello and Merry Christmas! We are thankful to have our wood burning stove all hooked up and warming the inside of the Welcome Center! Not only does the warmth warm our bodies in contrast to the cold outside, but the smell and the beauty of the fire warms our hearts as we relish these comforts! With the Welcome Center decorated for Christmas and the wonderful winter flurries outside, it definitely feels like Christmas! And can you guess who is watching over our "flock" this Christmas? Yep, Sid is our shepherd! What a guy!

Thank you all for your prayers and support! We always appreciate the gifts we receive! Of course the most important gift that has ever been given to us is that of the Christ child born in Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago. This baby didn't stay in that manger bed but grew up to die on the cross, conquering death and offering us the opportunity to be forgiven of our sins and to spend all eternity with Him & His Father! Thank you, Lord! As tiny Tim said, "God bless us, everyone!" Merry Christmas!
"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6
