This was another tough year but in our family we can testify that “for those who love God all things work together for good” (Rom 8:28) and we hope it is the same in your family. This Christmas season we hope you can celebrate the coming of the king and anticipate his second coming. And may these two great events profoundly shape your present.
We hope you enjoy our family Christmas video again this year. Every year I say this is the last year and with Elisabeth now off to college next year’s is certainly going to be different. We’re glad she’s home now and we had the chance to go through all twelve video greetings.
Blessings to you and your family in 2022!
2The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
on them has light shone.
3You have multiplied the nation;
you have increased its joy;
they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest,
as they are glad when they divide the spoil.
4For the yoke of his burden,
and the staff for his shoulder,
the rod of his oppressor,
you have broken as on the day of Midian.
5For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult
and every garment rolled in blood
will be burned as fuel for the fire.
6For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.

Merry Christmas, Pattersons! Enjoy especially getting Elisabeth back home and the richness of a table completed by family in the presence of the Spirit. We love you
