Notes from Jan


December 29, 2023

Just sent a post and the best photos were missing. I’m not too swift when it comes to technology. So… gotta say I’m grateful for GRANDchildren. Luke helped me on this one. So here are the photos that were to have been part of the blog post entitled Appreciation and Anticipation. Now you get to appreciate the lost photos.

Who me, like tea?

After I return home, I hope to do another blog post before January 4th that catches you up on Chad, Kristina, Maggie and Poco.

Until then,

JOY and PEACE to and through you.

Love always,

    Thanks Jan from one Luddite to another. It’s great that God knows our heart as it can be a challenge for us to get it all out at least at one time. However, the pictures were worth the wait so thanks for your persistence. Families are meant to be a gift from God, but we need to work at receiving this gift to make it what God intended. Persistence pays off here as well. Love, brother Dale

      It’s always good to hear from you, my dear friend/brother Dale. Just unbundled a big batch of mail held at the post office while I was in California for the better part of three weeks. So excited to see Christmas cards and not just bills, fundraiding letters, and other stuff. I caught a glimpse of Marty’s handwiring so I look forward to catching up on the Lefever family. I haven’r gotten around to opening any cards, yet. Saving them to savor slowly over the next week or so. Until then, thanks for sharing my Luddie tendency and for you and Marty remaining my faithful Michigan friends. May God bless you, your family and the important work you do and the ministries you and Marty support from your generous hearts.
