Christmas celebrations for most are finished some have delayed times yet for celebrating due to various reasons. Decorations down cleaned up and stored for the next time. We don't decorate like we use to do it just became to much hard work for these two older folks so its time to give it

up, besides most the family gatherings are at homes of our adult children with their children.

We got to spend various days of Christmas with all of our four adult children and their spouses, the nine grandchildren and four great grandchildren, so I can say I'm blessed.

Visited various places viewing the Christmas light displays also commented that I think seen more of the nativity displays this year than before at least in awhile, YEAH for the folks and business's that had them that is what the season is about.

Sympathy to Ben Golden family on his passing.

Reminder that the Xenia Community Adult Lunch WILL NOT MEET in January or February reason due to possible bad winter weather conditions. Meet again 1st Wednesday in March please pass the word on.

As we close the door of year 2019 prayers that it was good for you and you family for some I know it was sad for various reason, others a happy joyful year. But as we enter a NEW YEAR 2020 with 365 hopeful days ahead to make future plans trust in God and pray daily it makes life much smoother not always necessarily easier, as we all have mountain tops and valley's in life, but God knows our needs, he never gives us more than we can bear, just have to pray and trust not only for ourselves, family, and friends but our country,and leaders of our country, there is always someone much worst than us.

'HAPPY NEW YEAR'...GOD BLESS

Stay Humble...take care...'til next time.
