S: Christmas 2010

BC: Made With Love By: Beth Paugh Simply Because We Love You!

4: Dear Mom & Dad, I'm sitting in my office listening to the words of O Come Let Us Adore Him"and of all the memories I have of family Christmases.... this one stands tallest. You never made Christmas about stuff or in the busyness of the season, ever tired of helping us to discover the importance of Bethlehem. From all the Christmases we've shared, I learned that if people would see Jesus in me, there must be room for Bethlehem in my heart every day. As I've grown older .... and in the busyness of life, I've far to often been more like the Inn Keeper who had no room. But as I sit to write this note, I'm reminded that it was in the messiness of stable life that God came to man and it's in the messiness of my stable life that He comes and offers hope, order, and joy amid the chaos. The truth in all this might never have been a reality for me if not for the faithfulness of parents like you and the reading every Christmas morning of the story of the birth of a savior who had come for each of us. I believe it is true that iron sharpens iron and I am grateful that the Lord has allowed me to be sharpened by parents cut from the kind of metal that you are. I love you, Merry Christmas Ed

5: Dear Dad and Mom, I have always said that I have the best in-laws a daughter-in-law could ask for.! Thank you for embracing me right from the beginning and making me truly feel a part of the Covert clan.! Thank you for bringing into this world and raising wonderful children who love the Lord.! Thank you for your Christian walk and example.! You have passed on a rich heritage to your family through the generations.! I love, respect, and admire you both so much.! Thank you for loving your family so well.! You are a blessing! With love and appreciation, Maryann

6: Dear Grandpa and Grandma, ! You are the greatest grandparents anyone could ask for.! I love you so much and you mean so much to me.!! I love that every time I see you I am in for a big hug and a good time.! To me you are grandparents who are... Great, Rad, Amazing, Neato, Delightful, Phenomenal, Awesome, Ridiculous amounts of fun, Exciting, Nurturing, Talented, Super, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH ----period, end of story. :)!!! Love Taylor!

7: Dear Grandpa & Grandma, You are the most amazing Grandparents ever.! I love you both so much and I don't know what I would do without you. You always show your love to me in every way you can and I'm so glad I have you both. Grandpa you are my one and only and you always make me happy. Grandma you are wonderful and have unconditional love to all of us that makes me feel warm inside.!I said it already, but I will say it again because it's just so true, you both are amazing and I love you so much.! Thank you for being such wonderful Grandparents.! Love you always, Claire

8: Mom and Dad, As 2011 quickly draws near, the reality that you brought me into this world 50 years ago is, well sobering. Probably as much for you as for me. And while I wasn't always the most pleasant person to be around in 1961, 1973, 1978 - 1981, to name just a few challenging moments. You both hung in there and didn't give up on me. Dad I am sure that you wore out the knees on several pairs of uniform pants praying for me and I do appreciate it. Its really quite amazing how much you learned from the time I was 13 to about 23. Up until then I felt you weren't very smart. Now that I have grown children, I wonder if my learning curve matches yours. I think maybe so, because I'm certain that when they were teenagers they were sure that I had no clue! Thank you for getting smarter. Then came Linda and you both accepted her as your own and continued to support us through thick and thin. Unfortunately, as I view the scale each morning it would appear that I'm back in the thick again. But I digress . . . Thank you for being amazing role models. As individuals, as parents, as Christians, as pastors, and the list goes on. I am who I am today because of you. I am proud to have you as my parents and I (WE) love you very much. Merry Christmas. -John and Linda

9: Mom and Dad, I just wanted to say that you are and have always been my favorite in-laws. You have made me feel very welcomed into your family since the first time I met you (oh, so long ago). I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a joyous new year to come. Love Linda

10: Grandpa and Grandma, Thank you so much for always being there for me (your first and favorite granddaughter), whether it has been to spoil me rotten or to quarantine me in your house when I'm sick. I appreciate everything that you have done for me and I wouldn't be who I am today without your love and support. Love always Jen

11: Grandma and Grandpa, You are great. Really. Thank you so much for your undying love and support for anything and everything that I do. I definitely look up to you both a lot and am so thankful that I get to call you Grandma and Grandpa. I love you! Kellie

12: Dad & Mom, Words cannot begin to express how much I appreciate and love you. You have always been there for me and have seen me through some rough times and stood beside me. Throughout my life you have always demonstrated to me how to be a Christian parent and a great Officer. I can only hope to demonstrate those same characteristics. Thanks for all your support of our family. I Love You! Beth

13: Dad & Mom, As we celebrate this Christmas season, I cannot help but to think of the things that are most important to me, “Relationships”. I am forever grateful to God for you two. God in his ultimate wisdom brought all of us together and you have received me into your family. I am extremely grateful for your love, acceptance, and most importantly, your friendship. I love you guys. ! Mike

14: Papa & Grandma, We want to thank you for all you have done for us. We cannot begin to express how much it means that you are always there for us. We love you very much and don't know what we would do without you. We Love You! Andrew & Courtenay
