A Christmas Eve sermon offering as its theme, "Jesus came so that you could have a better life." Don't even get me started. (Move over, Joel Osteen.)
An afternoon walk through Gulf waters of blue and green followed by a long nap.
A Christmas Dinner of grilled shrimp-scallop-and-pineapple kabobs out on the deck.
