Merry Christmas to you!!!

It's a really nice day here in Oklahoma...hard to believe it's the first day of winter!! I want those of you who are in our local area to know that we will have Cowboy Church at Limestone Gap this Tuesday night...supper at 6:30 and church at 7:00. I'd love for you to meet Mark and welcome him to our area.

Most of you already know that I married Mark Eaton on December 12 in Cannon Beach, Oregon..we are adjusting to married life and having a great time. We will split our time between Washington and Oklahoma and right now we are finishing up the last details of the house...trying to move in.

We went to Erath County Cowboy Church in Stephenville, TX yesterday and had a full house. I was there one year ago today and it's amazing how the cowboy churches are growing in numbers and in vitality. Saw lots of friends who I've known for at least 30 years in the rodeo world and it was great getting to see them.

Thank you for continuing to support Cowboy Church on RFD tv. Because of your support, we are able to continue to be on the air. I love it when people respond about the show and how they are blessed to be able to watch. Thanks to Russ Weaver for contiuing to share the Word with us and especially to our film crew, Jimmy Barnes & Ray Dale. Huge blessings on Jim & Ruth Ann Odle who celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary on December 18! You've been a blessing to all of us.

We will be celebrating Christmas with Oklahoma cousins on Wednesday, and then flying to Washington on Thursday to celebrate with Mark's family. We hope that your Christmas is warm, inviting, full of visiting with family and friends around the most popular and joyous occasion in history...Christ's birth.

God's richest blessings to you and yours,

Susie & (a most joyous) Mark

    Hi Everyone,

    I want to share with my friends who have stood by me through the years, that I will be married to Mark Eaton of Everett, WA in Cannon Beach, OR, December 12. We have been planning this for quite awhile and everything lined up perfectly when I was invited to sing at Cannon Beach Conference Center this weekend. You see, Mark and I met here one and half years ago, so this is a very special place for us.

    Please agree with us in prayer that our wedding ceremony will go well, and that for the rest of our lives we will submit unto the Lordship of Jesus Christ individually, and as a couple. We desire to be the best parents/stepparents/mentors/guides/friends to each of our children for the Kingdom of God.

    As far as where we will "hang our hats" we will enjoy the best of 3 worlds.SE Oklahoma, the Great NW, and the ROAD!

    Thank you for your support and your prayers.I can't wait for you to meet Mark.

    In Christ,

    On my way to Cannon Beach, Oregon

    Hi Everyone!
    I am currently on my way to Cannon Beach, Oregon for the Cannon Beach Conference Center's Christmas Conference this weekend - wow! it's cold here in the Northwest! I am looking forward to ministering there and seeing folks I've met there in the past.

    I am sorry this is so short! Things are going well with me (aside from locking my keys in my car --with it running while in Manhattan, KS). E.P., Lucchese and Samuel are well and thriving in their lives, and my parents are well. We are planning a huge cousins' get together a few days before Christmas and will have a "talking" good time.

    So glad to know that many of you are enjoying the new songs on "I'll Be Home for Christmas" cd. We will highlight some of the songs on Cowboy Church the weekend of the 20th with our Christmas show.

    I hope to see you in the upcoming weeks either in Cannon Beach at the Conference Center, or at the Erath County Cowboy Church Dec 20th, Stephenville, TX.

    God bless you and be safe!
