We received this Christmas card many years ago. I always loved the shepherd and sheep clicking their heels in joy...
It came from some precious friends I met while I was a student at Westmont College, Gerry & Janie Iverson. They were a special pair. Their focus and intent was to live for Jesus, in everything they did. They married after college, and went on to seminary and into the ministry. They had 3 kids, one was a Downs Syndrome child who was the joy of the whole family's life.
The family was leaving Lake Arrowhead in California one day, and an 18 wheeler crossed the line and 4 of them were killed instantly. Jeff, their oldest son, was the only one who lived.
I found this card from them recently, and am posting it today. I think it's as simple and clear as anything I could possibly say, and it reflects my own heart as we head into December.
