    I just wanted to say hello and let you know that I absolutely love your writing! I agree with your thoughts on Facebook and of course your views as a Christian. Although I moved away from Orange County and CCPC a little over 10 years ago, I still remember how moved I was by your testimony, all of the great skits that you and Nancy concocted and your husband and daughters beautiful singing! When my girls were young I was often asked if our girls were related. Our babies are all grown up now, where did the time go? I’ve followed the updates on Ron and his progress. He has been in my prayers and I will continue to pray for his speedy recovery. Because of FB, I know how your family is doing, about all of your adorable grand-babies and about Ron’s surgery. If Facebook didn’t exist, I probably wouldn’t know any of it or be able to pray for your family. I’m glad you don’t mind being creeped on, not that I am creepy (lol). I wish you and your family a wonderful and Merry Christmas.

    In Christ,
