Meowy Catmas and a Happy Mew Year from all the inhabitants ________ia!
Queen Olivia with her royal paw stamp proclaimed the earnest edict that this year, our letter will arrive to our friendds and family before Christmas. I am Double Stuff ________ and since I am the oldest and softest of the feline members of ________ia, I was asked to tell you about myself first. I do notice myself showing a little more grey hair since I am almost 16 now. I also must admit it is harder to hear things and sometimes I forget where the littler box is. :( Lorri is patient with this, but we are all eating in the basement now and stay there for a while after we are done! We do still get to snuggle into our favorite place on the bed once we are "set free from the basement". Other than that our routine has been much the same this year. Now let me calibrate the meow activated software to match Cookies N Cream's voice...testing...testing. Cookies N Cream _____ here to report my purrception of what has been going on around here. I have little spats with Queen Olivia every once in a while, but mostly we get along just fine. I still am proud to get compliments on how majestic I look with my long, light brown and cream colored mane. Lions are my heroes!! "Uh Oh" Queen Olivia rolled her eyes at that last comment. I guess it is her turn to talk.
Ahem . . . Dear friends and family of ________ria, it is with great pleasure that I accept your nomination to be the first black and white female short haired feline president of the United States of America!! "Olivia wake up you're making speeches in your sleep again" What? Uh? Oh, sorry about that folks, with all of the election news this year I got a little carried away. Luke and Lorri have included our country in their prayers a lot this year. They talked about the truth that nothing is out of God's control. I hear them talk about the hope of heaven and that they will see Luke's dad again and laugh and dance in the beautiful presence of our creator.
Lorri continues to enjoy hanging out with her adorable nieces 2 days a week and now is hanging out with another young lady named Samantha once a week as well. She continues to be the longest standing employee for Senior's Choice at home and God has continued to provide clients as needed.
Luke continues to work for ________ and is thankful for steady employment. He still is part time at Perkins as well. Opportunities to speak and teach have also increased! In addition to 9 times per year at the _________ and 2 times per month at the Juvenile Detention Center, he has been privileged to sub teach a total of 3 times for classes at the Development Institude of our church. Teaching and preaching is his passion because because the results of spiritual growth in christ have ETERNAL impact.
Both Luke and Lorri enjoy singing together at nursing homes and always sing for Lorri's Grandmother when they visit.
Highlights of the year would be a summer get together in Bemidji with Luke's family and the usual visits to Iowa to Lorris relatives. They also enjoy hosting and "Oh Phooey" (fun card game) tournament 2 times a year in the spring and the fall.
If I could take the keyboard from Queen Olivia for a moment, Lorri and I pray that this holiday season, all of us being rooted and grounded in love (perfect love) would be able to more and more comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height . . . to know the love god which passes knowledge; that we may be filled with all the fullness of GOD.
