Merry Christmas 2011

Well, folks, as you know it's that time of year again. I usually take an extended break from the blog at Christmas so I won't be making posts now until December 31st. So that's it for 2011. Your comments will be displayed here as usual but there will be a few days without any new postings. I need to just soak in the time with family.

I am looking forward to the best Christmas of my life at a time when I am still seeking employment. Christmas isn't about the exchange of gifts for me. It is about the birth of the Savior and spending time with my family. Our whole family will be with us this Christmas and I am really just so happy about this coming event.

As I have said in previous years ... there's no chance I'm quittin' on the blog. I hope I can shoot and post photos for the rest of my life ... but a rest is good for the mind too. In fact, I have spent a great deal of time praying that God might make this a way for me to pay my bills.

I want to thank you all for your kind wishes at this season. I hope you have a blessed Christmas with your families. I pray you have travel safety. May God bless you with His mercy and grace. Wise men still seek Him today.

Catch you in a few days.

I'll Be Home For Christmas

In a few hours our Army Medic daughter, Tara, will board a plane in South Korea and will begin the long journey back to us for Christmas. We have really missed her goofy laughter and smile from all our family gatherings.We are counting the hours now.
Tara left for South Korea last year about this same time after her AIT graduation and did not take any summer leave in order to get extended time over the Christmas holidays with us. I can't wait for this Christmas just to see all our kids, their wives & husbands and our 6 grandkids all under one roof for celebration of the birth of the King. I am crazy looking forward to this years celebration.
Stay safe kiddo! Prayers for you.
Love, Pops
