Twelve Drummers Drumming
The twelve points of doctrine in the Apostles' Creed: 1) I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. 2) I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. 3) He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. 4) He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell [the grave]. 5) On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 6) He will come again to judge the living and the dead. 7) I believe in the Holy Spirit, 8) the holy catholic Church, 9) the communion of saints, 10) the forgiveness of sins, 11) the resurrection of the body, 12) and life everlasting.
Marvin's note to me was in reference to God having control and since he does we should have trust him completely.

This second picture is with our adult children and their spouses meeting for meal. .
My note to Marvin was a wrap up of this time we spent writing notes to each other. I told him that we could get through anything with Jesus at our sides.
Marvin bought me several gifts, My favorites are the photo album that he made for me, slippers and a tool box. Tonight he just brought me home something I said I wanted yesterday (a needle nose pliers). I also got a thing you put in the shower to wash your feet. I still have not tried it. Like I said earlier the notes were the best part.
I bought Marvin. a couple of new shirts for church, a t shirt, a Los Angeles Lakers calendar, A poker book, and many scratch off tickets (all losers). Marvin did put in his last note that he did not want to do this again.
Although this is end of the 12 days of Christmas I am anxious to tell you what we have been doing the last few weeks.
