Have a Great Holiday

     Ginger and I love this time of year even though sometimes it seems like the “getting ready” takes forever and the family time together just flies by! I’m pretty sure that Jesus was born sometime in April but I’m glad folks are at least thinking about Him this time of year. My prayer is that when people look up the account of His birth in the gospels they will keep right on reading their Bibles past the Christmas season.

     This is the last Hobbs Street Herald for 2016 so I thought it good to take this as an opportunity to wish all of you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Ginger and me. We love you all and are so very thankful to have been blessed with another year of work together with this great congregation of God’s people.

     One of the blessings of having a long tenure as a preacher at a place is the closeness that develops. We come to know each other’s strengths and shortcomings. I am thankful for your words of appreciation for my work and lessons when you like them and the little smiles and laughs when I make a fumble of some sort. It’s all about being together in a big fine family. May God bless all of you here at Hobbs Street!
