Good News of Great Joy!

One of God's special gifts to me is my second husband's dear family. They fill my life in many ways but especially at holidays when my two sons and their families are not with us.

This year we were so happy to have my son Andy and his dear family--Amy, Ryan, Jacob and Allie join us. Kathi's friend, Joe was also with us for the first time. The food was yummy. The kids were delighted with their gifts. There were many good conversations and a family game as well. Later the families enjoyed The Voyage of the Dawn Treader movie. It was a happy day to remember. It was particularly nice to have an expanded cast for our drama of the true Christmas story.

There were observant and nurturing shepherds

A host of glorious angels . . .

Mary was magnifcent and Joseph was outstanding

Sweet, sweet baby Jesus
No crying [he] made.

Three sagacious magi

And all the other supporting roles.
What a wonderful story!

Joy, Joy, Joy!
