"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it." John 1:5
This Christmas we celebrate the Light of the world—Jesus Christ the Prince of Peace, Almighty God, Everlasting Father, the Messiah—and thank Him for life abundantly on earth and eternally in Heaven.
Indeed, the Lord is shining! Three Christmases ago darkness hovered over us as we expected that Christmas would be my last. Yet, here I am thanking The Light every day my leukemia is controlled, my life is full, healthy, and active. What purpose did God have in my cancer? God's plan was for me to write a book of Light encouraging those suffering. Praise the Lord and Pass the Chemo: A Hopeful Response to a Hard Reality was released in September. I rejoice as the book shines Light and hope to those who hurt.
Other highlights of our year saw our oldest grandson, Connor, join the Marine Corp.
We are proud of his heart to serve.
Elizabeth and Joe said goodbye to their eldest, but the nest is not empty.
Their ninth child is due in February 2019.
I think their lights are never out in the busyness and fun at the Sliwa home.
Sam and Katie, Lily and Jack continue in the Air Force,
waking to the Light at their new home in Alabama.
Joanna and Bob entered the world of raising teenagers
and realized their life is speeding by at the speed of light.
Dan and I enjoy his retirement spending time with grandkids and summers in the ADK.
Dan fills the pulpit when asked and plays his trumpet in the community orchestra.
I continue to write and speak to a variety of groups.
Our life and our family is filled with the Light of Jesus.
We pray yours is too on this bright Christmas day!
Merry Christmas with love from all the Miller family!
