Merry Christmas, Happy Nativity -- and again in 13 days! :)

Just wanted to wish everyone out there a VERY Merry Christmas and blessed feast of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Not sure what everyone else thinks, but this Christmas season has been one of growth, turmoil, and blessings -- I admit, that I haven't gotten to slow down and enjoy the season as of yet, but seeing as how the feast doesn't technically start until tonight, maybe that isn't such a bad thing.

Lots of stuff has happened in my life, the lives of my family and friends and in the world. But the one constant is the reminder to love my neighbor as myself. I'm not very good at it. In fact, I can be a jerk, but I'm trying. Perhaps once the feast is underway I'll be able to reflect upon this last year. Who knows? All I know is that right now, I hope that everyone out there -- including all my "adoring fans" who'd like to see God take me out to the woodshed for a good old fashioned straightening out -- spends the next 12 days with family and loved ones. Have a very Merry Christmas!
