Christmas Letter 1For most of us, Christmas is a season of joy, for me it is also a time for reflection and remembering.

When I think back about this past year, excitement, challenge, and joy are the words that best describe our lives in 2015.

Excitement . . .

Finalization of the adoption of Abigail Chloe Lorraine Harris into our forever family! Nathan, Jessica, Caleb and Abby are doing great!

Announcement of Isaac and Tiffany’s first child and newest addition into the Bubna clan (a baby girl due in February 2016)!

Challenge . . .

Record-setting windstorm that left us without power for several days, but thankfully, no serious damage.


Serious issue with “closet shrinkage” (went away on vacation and upon my return I found that most of my clothes mysteriously shrank while I was gone, go figure!).

Joy . . .

A growing family that blesses the socks off this old man.

Thirteen years serving a great church and looking forward to another thirteen or so.

Old friends who remain faithful and loyal. (Pictured here: Kip, Joe, John and Jesus . . . or maybe the longhair dude is Bill!)

Old Friends 1Bill and me

And most of all, continued amazement at the grace and goodness of our Father who loved us so much He sent His son to redeem us.

I hope this Christmas you remember our love for you, and I pray this next year you experience all the gifts God has for you and yours.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,





Kurt & Laura Bubna
