From the Heart: December 2018



It’s that wonderful, magical time of year again we call Christmas! It is absolutely my favorite holiday of all.  And while I love all the trappings of the holiday: the decorations, the lights, the family gatherings—my absolute favorite part of the holiday is attending our Christmas Eve service with my family.  It has become such a special tradition for us and really brings our focus to the manger.  “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord!” ~ Luke 2:11

Notice anything different?  We hope you like our logo makeover as much as we do!  Having been in publication since 2007 & 2005 respectively, Forsyth Familyand sister publication Forsyth Womanthought it was time for a little facelift.  Forsyth Woman Engagedled the charge with their new logo in November to produce one of its most beautiful covers yet.  Soon after, our designers Laurie Dalton and Aron Daniels worked together to get to the variation you see now for FF& FW. Kudos to both of them for their tireless creativity month after month, and for always putting our best foot forward!

We received some very unwelcome news last month that my sister by choice and business partner, Keela Johnson, has breast cancer, again.  She battled it in 2007 and has a great team in place to kick cancer to the curb once more!  In true Keela Johnson fashion, she hasn’t skipped a beat and remains positive.  We covet your prayers for her and her family during her surgery and treatment in the coming months. As we all know, prayer is a powerful thing!  You can keep up with her progress via Caringbridge.org/visit/keelajohnson1.

Our December cover features the late Dr. Harold C. Pollard, III, of Lyndhurst Gynecologic Associates.  It’s been a little over a year since his passing, but his presence is no less felt!

This issue has so many wonderful holiday events to partake in!  Performances of the Nutcracker by UNCSA and the Ballet & Performing Arts Centre, Santa visits and parades galore!  Christmas Around Downtown Kernersville, Christmas for the City & the new Santa’s Showdown race before the Lewisville Christmas parade!  Many wonderful shopping opportunities abound, so remember to be loyal to local!

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, I wish you a warm and happy holiday season!

Blessings!

Robin
