The GGF News 12/14/2012

We have all heard the immortal words of the Grinch-
 Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from the store-
Maybe Christmas means a little bit more.

But we don’t really believe it. 

At least we don’t act like it.  We drive ourselves crazy trying to make everything just perfect- the perfect gift- the perfect meal, the perfect tree…  Our actions declare that the perfect Christmas can be bought, manufacture, and created.  The Children’s Play this Sunday offers some great insight.  Consider your own thoughts – and join us this Sunday.

If you would like to discuss any of these thoughts further- I would love to get together with you.
