Happy New Year

NO, It's Not Snowing in South Carolina but, in celebration of the season and in honor of all our friends in the midwest and north who have been having to contend with the white stuff, we have some here in cyberspace again that no one has to shovel or blow off.


HAPPY HOLIDAYS... And they surely are for the Hilton Head Leiningers. David continues busy with brides and grooms (and Moms and Dads and Aunts and Uncles...). The wedding season here is year-round - letting up a bit during the winter months, but not so much as might be imagined, even despite the coronavirus restrictions. Officiating at such affairs has become a most enjoyable form of ministry. For details about the process, click here or on the "Weddings" button at left and we will be happy to assist. But if it is actually SNOWING, let's do it inside. Christie remains busy with Choirs and Handbells at church, and maintaining our home. The picture at the top of the page is the reason for our REAL celebration this holiday season. These three grandsons are a sheer delight. Big brother Noah is becoming more verbal by the day and the affection that he and twin brothers Davis and Ryan have for each other is palpable and a joy to behold. As we lament almost annually, they grow up TOO QUICKLY, don't they?


Our 2020 Christmas Letter is online again this year. In an effort to "go green," not to mention that this wonderful medium is the way the world (and especially locked-down students this year) communicates these days, leads us to embrace the technology. Click here to read it, then send us e-mail so that we can find yours as well.
