Have a Merry Christmas




Christmas 2021

To all our family and friends scattered everywhere.  Here is my Christmas card to you and yours. 

It’s hard to believe this year is almost over and 2022 is right around the corner.  Our first year of official retirement sped by with more to do than we ever imagined. 

We spent late April visiting our sisters in Louisiana and Florida. On the way we picked up a stomach bug and had to lay low for a few days in a motel until we were no longer contagious.  That was fun!!!  Both Marion in Louisiana and Audrey in Florida are doing as well as they can with their advancing age and health issues.

In June we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Branson, Missouri.  We enjoyed the shows and performances but were glad to get back home and off the interstates.

We devoted the remainder of the summer and fall to completing Charles’ book.  Chasing a Whirlwind is now available on and in a hardback and softback version. We are impatiently waiting for our copies to arrive. A book launch is planned for early next year.

Covid found me in August, but I recovered quickly after receiving an infusion of Regeneron antibodies. Except for my sense of taste and smell, all is back to normal—with the exception of Diabetes Type 2. Since my diagnosis early in the year, I’ve followed a Keto low carb diet. Thanksgiving triggered a return to my old eating habits.  It’s time to get serious again to keep my blood sugar levels under control.

We pray this Christmas season finds you well and enjoying time with your family. Let’s remember the family of the first Christmas and the great gift God gave to all of us with the birth of Jesus.  Take time to celebrate his birthday by sharing his coming with those around you.

 Love from the Dixons
