Merry Christmas from the Driggers! Our family canhardly even believe it is the Christmas season. Theyear has been a blur at times and yet at other times is seems to have stood completely still. Our God has shown Himself sovereign over and over again throughout it all, hasn't He? As weconsidered what to write this month, we thought there could not be a more wonderful way to bring this year to a close except by highlighting God'shand in this journey. Thank you for the vital part that you are in our family's life. Please join us withhearts full of gratitude to God for these snapshotsof 2011.
