Just wanted to say Merry Christmas to all

Its been a great year for us the Tarassov’s Kathy and I are doing well, we have loved having Toni move in with us for this season of her life. The Studio has grown and Sonma is well. We have seen lots of changes up and down in 2008. We are grateful that were still together and have some wonderful friends to share our lives with. I am also grateful to all the folks I have worked with at Light House as well as the Malvern Institute. Thanks for letting me into your lives to take a look at some very hard things as well as trusting me to come along side of you to challenge and grow out of our commfort zones. Im sure this year will bring its challenges and we all need allow change in our lives. I was viewing a old grad student frind of mine on Face Book and he had a quote from Heneri Nouwen on his page that said “When we become aware that we do not have to escape our pains … those very pains are transformed from expressions of despair into signs of hope.” May this come true for us.
May we seek our Lord and trust in Him for our comfort and direction. He really is the reason for this season. God Bless you all Shalom and Merry Christmas
