We did travel to St. Charles, Missouri to celebrate Christmas (a little early) with Margaret's side of the family. It is easier to do that from Council Bluffs, Iowa than it is from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Our hotel did provide a view of the Missouri River. However, the only white stuff I could see was snow and not sand.

In each phase of ministry I have had the opportunity to learn and grow from the people who have come into my life. I am grateful for each of you.
While I am not sitting on the beach this year, enjoy this photo from 2018 at Coligny Beach in Hilton Head Island. Merry Christmas!
