HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BETHANY!

Today's post is in honor of our beautiful daughter Bethany, who is 29 today!  It is hard to believe that the years have flown by so quickly . . . and she has always been such a blessing to us. 

She came into this world weighing 10 pounds, 13 ounces--and she was over a week early, with my due date set on Christmas Day.   

Happy birthday, Bethany!  You are such a thoughtful, caring, and selfless young woman (and a great cook).  We love you and are so thankful you are our daughter, our jewel.

GRANDMA STRIKES AGAIN: MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Here are some pictures of our oldest daughter and family, taken a few days ago at their home in Georgia.  Will share more family pics when our other daughter arrives from Arizona next week for Christmas.

JOY TO THE WORLD!

As I say every year, JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.

People can shop 'til they drop, even while denying Him . . .

People can spend small fortunes on gifts for the "season," but ignore the best gift of all:  the free gift of eternal life . . .

Merchants avoid such references as MERRY CHRISTMAS, but have no trouble raking in all the money people spend on CHRISTMAS PRESENTS . . .

Schools allow "winter break," and although Christmas is a national holiday, they won't call the break CHRISTMAS BREAK . . .

Political correctness has evolved to sheer stupidity.  It has gone beyond reason, purpose, and usefulness.  I'm all for fairness, safety, and polite common sense, but we've gotten ridiculous over so many trivial things nowadays.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, JOY TO THE WORLD, PEACE ON EARTH, GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN, A SAVIOR IS BORN, HARK THE HERALD ANGELS SING, GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN . . . Well, you get the idea!  We need to share the true meaning of Christmas.  Without the birth of Jesus, THERE WOULD BE NO CHRISTMAS!
