Thank you all for visiting my little corner of the Internet.  I know you have a nearly infinite set of options when it comes to on-line reading material, and I really appreciate any time you spend here.  As we approach another Christmas holiday, I want to wish you true joy and peace that can only come from knowing the King of Kings, who was born in a humble stable.  The image below is a little drawing I created in the SketchBook Pro app on my iPad – I hope you enjoy it!
