THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL


SANTA  CLAUS,

CANDY  CANES,


and

CHRISTMAS  TREES  AGLOW



THE  GREATEST  GIFT  OF  ALL

was

BORN  IN  A  HUMBLE  STABLE

WITH  OUT  TELEVISIONS,  I-PADS,

and

SUDDEN  LINK  CABLE


THE  GREATEST  GIFT  OF  ALL

WAS  OUR  SAVIOUR  AND  KING

HE  COULD  HAVE  HAD  ANY  THING

IN  THE  WORLD

but...

HE  WAS  SOOTHED  BY  THE  ANGELS

WHO  CAME  TO  SING

JESUS...JESUS...HAPPY  BIRTHDAY

TO  THEE

I  WILL  LOVE  YOU  FOREVER  FOR  WHAT

YOU  HAVE  DONE  FOR  ME 


PRESENTS,  FAMILY,  AND  A  FEAST

OF  FOODS

ALL  TEMPORARY  LUSTS  WHICH

EVOKES  MANY  MOODS


YOU  DEAR  JESUS,

THE  GREATEST  GIFT  OF  ALL

WILL  ALWAYS  BE  WITH  ME,  WHETHER

HAPPY,  SAD,  AND  WHEN  I  FALL

~Debbie  Ragan

Born  Again  Christian



FROM  MY  HUSBAND,  RICHARD  AND  ME

WE  WISH  YOU  A  MERRY  CHRISTMAS

AND  MAY  YOU  SEE  THE  SPIRIT  OF

CHRISTMAS  THROUGH  THE  EYES 

OF  A  CHILD.

BELIEVE...BELIEVE...BELIEVE


RICHIE  AND  MEGAN...DADDY  AND  I

LOVE  YOU  SO  MUCH  AND  YOU  MEAN  THE

WORLD  TO  US

AMY...WE  ALL  MISS  AND  LOVE  YOU  SO

VERY  MUCH.   AMY,  LOSING  YOU  WAS  OUR

GREATEST  LOSS  AND  PART  OF  MY  SOUL

WILL  NEVER  BE  THE  THE  SAME...I  ACHE  TO  HUG

YOU  AND  SEE  THAT  BEAUTIFUL  SMILE.  I  KNOW  HEAVEN

MUST  BE  EXCEPTIONALLY  BEAUTIFUL  THIS  TIME  OF

YEAR.  WE  WILL  FOREVER  LOVE...LOVE...LOVE  YOU.

EVERY  ONE  MISSES  YOUR  CUPCAKES,  CRAB  SALAD,

AND  SQUASH  DELIGHT.  ALL  MY  LOVE  BABY  GIRL.

DADDY  AND  I  WATCHED  CHARLIE  BROWN  CHRISTMAS

IN  YOUR  HONOR.   GRANNY  PLACED  A  BEAUTIFUL

GRAVE  BLANKET  ON  YOUR  GRAVE.   IT  IS  SO  ELEGANT

AND  GRACEFUL,  JUST  LIKE  YOU.  IT  HAS  GORGEOUS

BUTTERFLIES  ON  IT  AND  AN  ANGEL  RESTING  ON  HER

SIDE  WITH  HER  WINGS  FLUTTERED  OPEN.   YOU

WOULD  LOVE  IT  BUT  THEN  I  KNOW  YOU  HAVE  ALREADY

LOOKED  AT  IT.

XOXO

IRENE  AND  AJ...IRENE  IS  STILL  VERY  ILL  AND  IN

RESPIRATORY  ICU.  AJ  IS  SO  VERY  WEAK 


NANCY...MERRY  CHRISTMAS  TO  MY  SISTER-IN-LOVE

I  CANNOT  SAY  IT  ENOUGH  WHAT  A  WONDERFUL 

DAUGHTER  YOU  ARE  TO  YOUR  PARENTS,  A  BEAUTIFUL

MOTHER,  AND  A  PRECIOUS  SUNDAY  SCHOOL  TEACHER.

I  LOVE  AND  RESPECT  YOU  SO  MUCH


SUSIE  AND  LAURA...SUCH  A  LOVING  MOTHER  AND

DAUGHTER.  YOU,  SUSIE,  ARE  ALSO  A  WONDERFUL

DAUGHTER  AS  YOU  TEACH  FULL  TIME  AND  ARE  TRYING
