Meet the Aronsons
But thanks be to God , who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 15:57, 58

Greetings Friends and Family,
Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love all the things that go with it: lights, real trees, music, family get togethers and the faces of the grandkids when they see all the presents.
