Family Reprise

On Dec. 31, 1999, Toni and I and the kids traveled up to Grand Marais on the north shore of Lake Superior where we met my parents and sisters and brother and their families for a "Millenium" celebration.  This year we decided to redo that, so we spent New Year's weekend together again, this time in northern Wisconsin.  The 18 of us enjoyed the time together at the "Heartwood" retreat center for just over $20 per person per night--and my dad picked up the tab!  We brought food along to prepare meals, we enjoyed dancing and karaoke, played games and went out sliding and cross country skiing.  It was really fun.

Family is important and I'm glad we were able to enjoy that time together.  Even more important, though, is the truth and love of Jesus that our family life has been based on over all these years.  The forgiveness and joy of Jesus is something we want to share every day of this new year.  Let us know how we can help and serve and pray for you.
