Best Wishes - The Greatest Gift of All

Late at night before I get to bed, I enter my children’s room to watch them sleeping. In a few silent moments I pray and thank God for John and Elizabeth ... and for the baby we’re expecting next year.

More than toys and gifts this Christmas, Joanne and I want to renew our committment to love and cherish our children, and even more importantly, we pray that they too will recieve the greatest Gift of all, the Lord Jesus Christ.

For to us a child is born,
   to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
   and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

God gave us his Son that we might find in him all that we really need ...
  • Wisdom and direction in the midst of confusion and uncertainty, for he is a Wonderful Counselor
  • Strength to overcome all adversay, for he is the Mighty God;
  • Firm and gentle care and provision, for he is the Everlasting Father,
  • Peace with God and tranquility in our hearts, for he is the Prince of Peace.
Sincere wishes for you and your family to treasure the greatest Gift of all, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Joe, Joanne
John, Elizabeth ... and the baby
