a look back at 2011, 2012, 2013

We look forward to the adventure of 2015.



it's that time of year
the most wonderful time of year
the busy time of year

you're going to have to reach for it
stretch those arms out and hold on to it
what might you ask are you reaching for

the greatest gift EVER

Jesus came and dwelt among men
but they had to reach for Him
the shepherds went to Him
the wise men searched for Him

You have to reach for HIM
and in Him alone will you find

the greatest gift EVER
