Merry Christmas

I wanted to take the time to write you all a Merry Christmas wish.  I chose not to participate in the DOC Christmas card exchange not because I am a scrooge, but because I wasn't sure if we would have the finances available.  It was probably more a lack of faith on my part as every time I have wanted to give, there has been money available even for something small.  God is so good to us and He knows my heart so I have no doubt that if I would have made this commitment that the funds would have been there. 

I chose instead though to say a prayer for each of you daily.  My prayer is that in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the shopping, baking, parties etc that you would have moments when you are overwhelmed by the joy of the season.  That the baby in a manger would be so real for you this Christmas season that your heart would leap in anticipation.  I pray that there would be at least one moment where you are sitting and quiet when God would reach down and touch you with His amazing love for you.  His love is why we celebrate!  Jesus is the reason for the season but more importantly, YOU are the reason for the season.  God was thinking of you when He sent His son to this earth and with out you there would be no reason to celebrate this precious gift.

I have grown to love you people that live inside my computer so much, thank you for being there and being my friends! 



  1. And a VERY MERRY Christmas to you too!

  2. I love you too Heidi!!! AND...I am so grateful for your friendship and support. Funny how I think of all of you throughout my day...while flooding the rink, while doing dishes...while cleaning...while driving...while sitting rink-side...you are all with me.

    Merry Christmas and Happy 2011!

  3. Oh Friend, I have grown to love you, too!! I am praying that you have a wonderful Christmas season.
