Merry Christmas To All
It is December 24th, Christmas eve 2005. Part of my extended family are suffering the loss of their mother, grandmother, aunt and loved one. The receiving of friends was held today from 12:00 noon - 2:00 p.m. It was a time to see faces and people I haven't seen in a number of years and this afternoon was a time to think about Christmas of long ago. Some great memories of a time without technology and a more carefree time.
I wanted to take this time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I will be spending time with family and friends and trying to keep all of my computers down, so its unlikely that I will post very much between now and 2006.
Christmas is an important time for my family and I. It is a time when we celebrate God coming to earth in a human body, born as baby to Mary and Joseph (common people with an uncommon calling) he lived for 32 years as a perfect man. The world turned on him, even one of his "loyal followers" betrayed him and they crucified Christ and buried him. He died on the cross for my sins and yours. The good news is that he is not still in the tomb. On Friday they killed him but Sunday he rose again and he sits on the throne, waiting to take his bride (the church) home.
No matter what kind of Friday that you maybe going through the great news is that Sunday is on the way. Put your trust in our Holy, Heavenly Father and he will see you through.
Thanks for reading my blog this year, I will Lord willing return to blogging in 2006. May God richly bless you and yours.
