Due to severe time limitations I am officially giving up on the idea of Christmas cards. Sad but necessary. 2009 has been quite a year as you have read. From the new addition of Naomi Faye to the many adventures in Japan it has been full to say the least.
Wishing you all a blessed Merry Christmas. Thank you for being a part of our lives!
"He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide there faces he was despised and we esteemed him not. Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way: and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all."
From Isaiah 53
