Dear Jordan, Merry Christmas, my son. We worshipped Jesus this morning (just like you did). Kelsie sang a mini-concert. She sang about the King you now see with your own eyes. (The photo below was taken after church this morning.) I don't have a lot to say. I simply wanted you to know something: we're … Continue reading Dear Jordan, Merry Christmas, My Son…
