CHRISTMAS EVE 2008



WOW, CHRISTMAS EVE IS HERE.


Tom made it through the pass and is here with us now. We went out and got a webcam for our computer and we hope that it will get us hooked up with our family(Angel and Aaron and Will's cousins) so we will be together through the power of technology. We just got it so I think I have it installed right. Will went down to the physical therapy room downstairs and did some exercises and he will do more tomorrow. He has dialysis tomorrow and he will be feeling good on Christmas Day. Maybe if you all have time, you could wish Will a Merry Christmas on the comment page (you don't have to write a lot). I will read them all to him on Christmas morning. I would mean a lot to him.


We look forward to Christmas because of all the blessings God has given us throughout this last ten months. But it all started with the miracle in a manger, what a great gift for all of us who believe in Him, Jesus Christ, and what it means to all of us-eternal life.


I can't help but remember that there is a family going through their "first" Christmas without their loved one. Without his or her special gift of lungs given to Will, he wouldn't be here now. I pray with all my might that they might find peace through this season. Please help me pray for them.


"more blessed to give than to receive."Acts 20:35 (NIV) I know most kids out there don't believe that, but if you haven't bought your gifts for your family, maybe you can give a service gift of yourself. Think about a foot rub, or doing dishes without being asked, or anything like that.
God bless everyone and have a great Christmas Eve. We sing carols and laugh a lot (usually it's because of our singing that we laugh).

Here's hoping all of you have a very Merry Christmas linked up with your new webcam connecting with all of the ones you love this holiday season. As we near the birth of Jesus in the manger- they became a family that day. We count our blessings for family & friends.
May God bless you & yours this holiday season.---

Will, Tom, Terry & Family,
"Inspiration" is a word that gets used a lot in the comments on your blog, but it will never be 'over' used. You truly motivate the rest of us to be better than we are just by your faith and the way you handle your daily challenges.
I know that there will be special Christmas blessings coming your way because God truly loves you all.
Merry Christmas! Toni

Merry, Merry Christmas Will, Terri, Tom, Angel, and Aaron. May this be a most blessed Christmas. Boise is quite beautiful with a thick blanketing of snow. I'm saddened that you aren't near for Christmas hugs, but we realize that this is a part of the journey to get you back to Hagerman. I have no doubts that 2009 is your year!!

Love
Pam and Dave

Merry Christmas to all! We miss having you guys so close, but you will be in our hearts on Christmas morning. We can't wait until you are back in Idaho. Cali has some new snow boots to show Uncle Will, and another Hannah Montana song...she knows how much he loves them.

May Jesus always be
your joy, your hope, your song.
And may this Christmas
and each day of the new year
be directed by His guiding hand of love!

Merry Christmas with love from the
