Season’s Greetings! Happy New Year!
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
We wish you all the best in 2021.
This has been a trying year.
Thousands have died and are suffering
And like many we’re using zoom
There have been social justice demonstrations
Some issues with income inequality
But we’re hopeful about a Biden’s presidency
And for this season it’s for us to be thankful
It means a lot to be happy this season.
Matthew and Shannon are doing well.
At UVA Matthew is busy as a Genetic Counselor.
Shannon is enjoying her job as a Real Estate Agent.
And they continue to live in Charlottesville, VA
Surrounded by their loving pets
Mary and Erwin continue to face some difficulties.
Erwin has health problems that he’s watching
But is making the best of these chronic conditions
Work for our kitchen and bathroom
Is on hold because of the virus
However, we were able to give a face lift to the lawn
With new shrubs planted in the flower beds
Erwin has a new book out
It’s entitled, “Sunlit Streams of Water”
That’s a devotional for Religious Naturalists
He continues to write blogs
And posts them to his Facebook’s author page
These also appear on Twitter and his website –
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary
That surely was a milestone in our lives
But we haven’t done much travelling this year
We only visited the casino in Dover, Delaware
And Mary missed her sister-time in Oregon
We hope that there’ll be renewal of life in 2021.
This is promising since a vaccine is on the horizon.
Hopefully by mid-year there should be a new normal.
So all the best for the coming year!
Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year!
“Almighty God, bless our families at this time of the year! Be with us as we celebrate this season that has been dampened by the pandemic. And may we all live in peace and prosperity in 2021!
