Sandra Heska King said...

What Louise said!

Thank you so much for all your encouragement this year.

Love and hugs to you and your family. Plant a kiss or two from me on that grandbaby.

Merry Christmas!

Maureen said...

Thank you for including me, Glynn. A wonderful round-up.

May the blessings of Christmas be yours, and may the New Year bring joy.

Deidra said...

Glynn-

Thanks for including me here. But mostly, I thank you for your gift of encouragement. When I think of you, I think of Barnabas, the one the disciples called Mr. Encouragement (Acts 4:36). Barnabas is no small biblical character, and - just like Barnabas - you shine big here.

Merry Christmas, Glynn!

Jeanne Damoff said...

I echo the other comments, dear Glynn. You're a true encourager, the aroma of Christ to all who cross your path. Thank you. Have a beautiful Christmas, friend.

Love, Jeanne

Christmas Blessing to you and yours.
