Merry Christmas from my Family to Yours!
(When this photo was taken at the mall in Abilene, TX, Michelle and I had been dating for about a month. A lot of water under the bridge since then. I was 20. She was 19. 🙂 )

CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE @ BHBC
If you missed this past Sunday’s Worship Services, here’s a recording of our Offertory. I begin with a brief Christmas-themed medley before our talented Praise Band joins me in performing the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Christmas Eve Sarajavo.
2nd floor (or 3rd floor if you consider the basement) now taking shape. The tower on the left is the newly relocated west stairwell. The tower in the middle is the extension for the elevator. Finally, the tower on the right is the newly relocated east stairwell. The staircases have been lowered into the new stairwells. Most of the steel for the framing has been delivered.
Prepare to join me on Wed. evenings, beginning Jan. 10th, for our chapter-by-chapter study of the last book of our Bible. God has much to tell us regarding “what [has been] seen, what is now and what will take place later.” (1:19) We will take this learning experience slowly, studying approximately 1 chapter per week. Over the Christmas/New Year holidays, in preparation for our scriptural journey together, read through this fascinating “revelation/unveiling” of Jesus Christ. And then join me on Jan. 10th, at 6:30 in the Worship Center. Nick
QUOTE of the WEEK
LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE
A couple were busy shopping just before Christmas.
The wife suddenly noticed that her husband was missing and, as they had a lot to do, called him on his cell. She asked, “Where are you? You know we have a lot to do.” He replied, “Remember the jewelers we went into about 10 years ago, and you fell in love with that diamond necklace? I couldn’t afford it at the time and I said that one day I would get it for you?”
Tears started to flow down her cheek. Choked up, she said, “Yes…, I do remember.”
“Well, I’m in the gun shop next door to that.”
And a bonus… (my favorite Far Side Christmas cartoon)
If you’re not able to make out the text at the bottom, it says, “Unbeknownst to most theologians, there was a fourth wiseman who was turned away for bringing a fruitcake.”
