Merry Christmas!

Dear Friends~

"All is calm, All is bright..." So goes the refrain of one of our favorite Christmas hymns. Indeed, as we listen to beautiful Christmas music, surrounded by the company and laughter of those we love and best of all...a fresh, magical Christmas Eve snowfall, we are reminded of our many blessings.  Heading out to enjoy a beautiful candlelight Christmas Eve service at our church in Traverse City bedecked with simple elegance, we were reminded of the little song our son's (12 & 10) wrote this past week, that..."It's not about toys, it's not about gifts, it's all about the grace that God gives,"  we wanted to just take a minute and wish you a very warm and beautiful 'Up North' Merry Christmas - from our family to yours ~

God's Blessings~
Phil, Shannon, Ethan and Hunter´╗┐
