Another Christmas already! Yet they become more meaningful every year. God is good, and we are blessed. Twenty-nineteen is in the rear view mirror.

We continued to upgrade a bit this year. We bought new guest beds, toy storage cupboards etc. Still much to be done.

March brought the birth of grandson, Isaac Ryan Ross, to Justin and Leah in Cleveland. Mama and baby did well. We went to Cleveland for a week to help. What fun! What a blessing! We went to see Austin, Audrey, and Simon in May. Had a good visit. They are all doing well. We then had Brielle, Clark, and James with us in Marietta for a week in August—without parents! Again we had more fun than our aging bodies can cope with. But we recovered and are looking forward to doing it again.

In September Phil went to the annual Evangelical Association Convocation (the denomination of St. Paul’s Evangelical Church, where we worship).

We have continued our involvement in the Walk To Emmaus, providing music with other musicians for the community events at the Men’s and Women’s weekends and the monthly Gatherings. We also continue working with our church choir and doing special music for worship. Stephanie also sang in the Oratorio Chorus, her third year back after many years, in the Marietta College 93rd performance of Handel’s Messiah; rehearsals began weekly in September and the concert was the second Sunday in December. So, it’s a big commitment, and a lot of fun! All the family will be with us in Marietta Christmas afternoon and for a couple of days afterward.

Phil published two new books in 2019:

  • John’s Miracles—Seeing Beyond Our Expectations, 210 pages, 2019
  • God’s Great Plan for the World—The Biblical Story of Creation and Redemption, 305 pages, 2019.

We wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year! Please accept this free ebook by Phil, It’s About Time—And the Time Is Now! Enjoy!
