Beginning of the World


The first Christmas was the beginning of a world saved from sin. Hope was born, and every man—no matter how deeply mired in sin—can now receive the free gift of forgiveness and be a child of God through Christ.

Jesus said in Luke 4:18 (NLT), “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for He has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free . . .”

Now we can see. We've been released, we've been set free.

Warm Christmas greetings from a family scattered in the year 2012. Our card this year tells the story of the grace that came our way through various milestones in various parts of the world.
 
"Merry Christmas," says Attorney . . .
   
. . . and so do Earl Grey, Chai and brood

Grace, your family's bigger and more diverse this year. Ang cute ni Attorney, and the hamsters. Pero walang tatalo ke Adrian. Merry Christmas to you all, from Jack and myself.

It would have been bigger, but JC gave away two piggies. Have a blessed and meaningful Christmas!
