A very merry Christmas to you.
I have had an amazing year. I think I have learned more in the last year than I have in all the years before combined.
I have been blessed to be surrounded by people who love me. The year, though tough economically – especially in my home state – has been a truly rich one. It has been a year where I have come to believe that Love with God at its center can endure, overcome, and bless anything.
May each of you have a wonderful Christmas and a beautiful New Year!
