What are some of your favorite things about Christmas?

Merry Christmas

From our Christmas Letter:

It is hard to believe that Christmas is almost here. When we were little, we always thought our parents were crazy when they would say how quickly the year flew by. Each day, we find ourselves turning more and more into our parents. They were wise people after all!

We are living near the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Lynchburg, Virginia. Tim is working at Liberty University in the student accounts department while he pursues his seminary degree. Becky works at Thomas Road Baptist Church.

Jonathan is seven years old and in second grade at Liberty Christian Academy. He still loves sports and plays whatever sport is in season. He lost both of his front teeth this fall, so his theme song is definitely “All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth.”

Lynchburg is pretty much the middle location between both of our parents. Needless to say, there have been several trips to Georgia and Pennsylvania...and they all have visited many times. We have really enjoyed bei…

All I Want for Christmas

For your viewing pleasure:

Closer to the goal

I have always been overweight, or at least it seems so. I do have one medical issue that doesn't help things, but it is not an excuse either. Anyway, I have a really great doctor who is helping me out with that one issue, and I am proud to say I only have 6 lbs. more to lose until I get to my first goal weight. I still have a very long way to go, but gotta celebrate the little things...and I am close.

I thought I would post this to keep me motivated.

Little by little...

The Light

Just some Scripture I am pondering a bit today...

1 John 1

1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us…

Why did the chicken cross the road????

BARACK OBAMA: The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a change! The chicken wanted change!

JOHN MCCAIN: My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

SARAH PALIN: You betcha he crossed the road, but let's not talk about that, let's talk about energy policy, and how hard it is for a middle-class hockey mom to manage the budget of the only state in America with a massive surplus, especially while surrounded by countless Russian and Canadian chickens we have to keep an eye on.

HILLARY CLINTON: When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure - right from Day One! - that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn't about me.

GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just w…

Such a Slacker!

Well, it has been a while since I have posted something new here. Thanksgiving has come and gone. We spent a week with my family in Pennsylvania. Needless to say, there was plenty to eat! :) We all were spoiled...sleeping in, not having to cook, cable TV. We really enjoyed the vacation.

We spent time with some of our relatives, which was really nice. The older relatives had lots of stories about when they were younger.

We also did some shopping. Tim and I even ventured out to Wal-mart on Black Friday at 5 AM. We got some good deals.

Overall, it was a really nice trip. However, we were REALLY glad to be back home in our own bed!
