A Christmas Greeting from Mark Kemp

December 24, 2015

Merry Christmas Eve! 

Let me take this opportunity to express my warmest wishes - from all of us here at Kemp Harvest Financial Group - for a joy-filled Christmas season. The holidays are a great time to get together with extended family and friends, but it can get busy, and quickly. Our family has a few traditions that we make certain we celebrate that hold meaning to us and the holiday season.

At Thanksgiving, when we have our family and friends (who are more like family) around the table, we share what we are thankful to God for - usually things from the past year. Christmastime brings about the story of the First Christmas, the simple truth of Jesus' miraculous birth, which our family always reads together. Merrymead's Live Nativity is something we visit every year, and our family is always rolling on the floor with laughter after the annual reading of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barb Robinson. You can bet my family knows my Christmas theme song is "I'm Getting Nuttin' For Christmas" and if you ask them, they'll tell you why.

One more tradition that serves for both our home and office: we participate in Operation Christmas Child. This is a once-a-year gift-giving effort to provide a shoebox full of toys, school supplies, and hygiene items to children around the world who could never expect to receive a Christmas present otherwise.

Finally, let me leave you with my prayer that your holidays (no matter which ones you cherish and celebrate) will be blessed.

With Gratitude,

Mark Kemp & Family
