Cathy and I want to wish you and your loved ones a Blessed Christmas.  We are spending as much time as possible over the coming days with our children and grandchildren – there’s nothing more important to us.  As you open gifts and sit down to dinner with your family this holiday, please join us and offer a prayer for peace around the world.  And please also offer a special prayer for the safekeeping of our military men and women who are separated from their families today because of their commitment to protecting our freedom.  Merry Christmas from our home to yours!
