After our family Christmas we head up to Estes Park to my parents house with the rest of the Weber clan. Here some of the cousins are passing out gifts to everyone with grandpa joking in the background.

Paul’s words to the early church regarding the Man of Christmas
Colossians 1:15-20 (New Living Translation)
15 Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,[a] 16 for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. 17 He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. 18 Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead.[b] So he is first in everything. 19 For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, 20 and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

Morgan was very busy in sports in the past year. Here are a few of the activities: snow skiing, swimming, basketball, softball, golf and tennis. Morgan is in the 4th grade and has been doing very well. Her best subjects are Latin and Math (which were two of my worst subjects). Morgan is gentle in spirit and leads by example.
Lucy was also very busy and participated in the following activities: tee-ball, gymnastics, swimming and golf. Lucy is in Kindergarten and loving being around all her friends. She is very social and makes those around her smile and laugh. Lucy also lost her first tooth this year.
Betsy has had a great year thus far. Her 4th grade class is going well and is blessed with good friends around her. I am very blessed to have her as my wife. Betsy is a pillar in my life and my best friend.
I have been very blessed this year. I had my back surgery that was successful. I grew closer to God through it and praise God for it! I was very humbled to have been nominated and then later affirmed as an elder in our church. I thank God for my family and the many blessings that came from above this year.

What is a Christmas jar?
I saw this on Glenn Beck (Fox News) the other night and was very moved. This is from the "Christmas Jar"website created by; Jason Wright.
"A Christmas Jar is a pickle jar, peanut butter jar, Mason jar or whatever else you have around to collect your spare change each day.
All coins are dedicated to the jar, and during the week before Christmas you carefully select someone to give it too, anonymously. Was a neighbor laid off? Is a coworker struggling with health problems? Has a friend lost a loved one?
Simply put your jar on their porch, in their car, on their desk--wherever--and you could change their life for good!
$50, $100, even $200, you'll be surprised how much change you can generate and how much you can affect someones life.
Will you pledge to give away a Christmas Jar this year? "
We plan to help a family this year. What a better way to get the kids involved and lead by Christ's example.

I was commenting on a facebook post (above) from a friend of ours and it made me think; where has Thanksgiving gone and what will the media and retail chains do to Christmas this year?
The social media and retail stores want us to think about Christmas to stimulate our spending and skip right over being thankful for everything God has blessed us with. Never mind that they also will not acknowledge Christmas for the birth of Jesus but, instead say happy holidays or something similar. As Christians we can not follow the patterns of this world but be bold and break away! Remember the Thanksgiving holiday as a time to thank God for all the blessings but also remember when Thanksgiving is over not to conform to the world by saying happy holidays but instead; Merry Christmas!

is this passionate, wholehearted love for God?
—François Fénelon, The Seeking Heart
I challenge you to read the book; Crazy Love by Francis Chan and see if it changes your life!
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all
your soul and with all your mind.” This is the first and
greatest commandment. And the second is like it: “Love
your neighbor as yourself.” (Matt. 22:37–40)
Will you take the dare? This is a short read but will have you examine your life and take the scriptures to heart in a dramatic way.

Chorus: I've been to church. I've read the book. I know He's here, but I don't look near as often as I should. Yeah, I know I should. His fingerprints are everywhere. I'd just slow down to stop and stare opened my eyes and man I swear I saw God today.
I saw a couple walking by; they were holding hands. Man, she had that glow yeah I couldn't help but notice she was starting to show. I stood there for a minute takin' in the sky lost in that sunset a splash of amber melted in the shades of red.
I got my face pressed up against the nursery glass. She's sleeping like a rock. My name on her wrist wearing tiny pink socks. She's got my nose, she's got her mama's eyes. My brand new baby girl. She's a miracle. I saw God today. ------George Strait

I want to thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers. I ask that you continue to remember me in your prayers as I battle through the pain and begin to feel better. I have had a lot of friends pray with me, send cards, support my family in other ways and provide meals. I also want to thank my parents for staying with us and being their for all our needs.
I know that with God by my side and my friends and families support I will get through this.
