Just popping in to say . . .

"Merry Christmas, everyone!"

We are full of gratitude for all of you! We trust your year has been one of progress and unfoldment. One highlight for us was venturing to San Francisco and Oregon in October. Mark gave a Monitor talk at Arden Wood, after which we traveled to Redmond, Oregon, to be with Susan (my sister) and Bob, who took us to one of their favorite spots along the storied Metolias River.

Carrie just finished her fall semester at Principia, where she enjoyed oil painting among her senior-level sociology coursework. Painting the Mississippi from the college bluffs was a fun - and challenging - assignment.

We wish we could be with you all, and we send lots of love your way . . .

~ Have a blessed Christmas and fruitful 2014! ~

Love, Laura, Mark, Carrie, and Lily
