“If you feel that you cannot invite your neighbor to go to church, examine yourself, not your neighbor. Remember in your Christmas planning that happiness and good cheer are intimately linked with sound common sense.”

Bring a stocking for your child if you can, count is 42 as of now.  Santa fell out of a tree and is not sure he can make it. He has to rest for that big day coming up. He had 8 staples in the back of his head and a dislocated shoulder.  And his deer, all 8 didn't show up to help him. Wish him a quick recovery.

 So happy to let every one know that Keith and Crystal Stoltzfus have a new baby girl and both are doing great.  Crystal fought cancer most of her pregnancy but won.  See what God has done for her: a Christmas Miracle.  Her name is Ayvae.  Crystal's parents are Ginnie and Gerald Haines.

  Remember in prayer Joyce McDonald, Terri Santymire, David Shindle, Diane Perry, Mary Stewart, Kenny Wolford, Robert Dink Pownell, Patty Campbell, Wanda Fishel, Willard Galliger,  Dorothy Swisher,  Little Bryson Stewart,  Scottie Bohrer and all those that have lost loved ones.
