Merry Christmas 2013


Merry Christmas!
Our greetings, we had hoped, would be accompanied with a current picture.  The most recent such thing in which we both appear seems to have been taken on Easter Sunday, March 31.  So here it is.  We like to think we have not changed all that much in  the intervening nine months.

Easter commemorates the culmination of the Christmas Story, for without the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord, there would be no point in Christmas, for God sent His Son to effect our salvation through his death on the cross.  In conquering death and the grave on our behalf, Christ provided atonement for our sins.  It is the greatest Christmas gift ever given, or that will ever be given.  The gift is ours to receive.

We wish you the very best, and the Merriest of Christmases!

You look the same as you did when I saw you in October, so apparently you and BBBH have found an anti-aging secret..

Merry Christmas!

Vee, how kind of you to say so. I guess we were all blessed with good genetics.
