Holiday Cheer

If the holiday stress is starting to get to you, here's a laugh compliments of The Pastor's good friend, Kurt.

Merry Christmas!

OK, so after reading my post from yesterday and thinking about it a little more, I wonder if I wasn't just a tad bah-humbugish. Yes, it was a bad day. Yes, today wasn't so hot either (in any sense of the word), but it's possible I've lost perspective. I seem to be doing that a lot lately. I can probably blame it on holiday stress, but the truth is...I need to get a grip.

My son and I just finished watching "A Charlie Brown Christmas". I love Linus' speech about the meaning of Christmas. No matter how many times I see it, and despite the fact that it's a child's cartoon, I'm awestruck at the word of God every time I hear it. I love hearing the Christmas story in the old King James and I love that it was just told on prime time television on a major network. God is good!

If you're like me and feel slightly freaked out by the holiday madness (or by life in general); if you're pipes are frozen, your wallet is thin, or your to-do list is wildly long, take a moment to reflect on the Savior and the meaning of the season. Things just might come into perspective a little.

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year -- Not

It's 9 degrees out with a wind chill of -6. I'm not sure I consider that to be the most wonderful time of the year. This morning my power went out just as I was about to step into the shower. I decided to pack up my stuff and head to our church, where I knew I could catch a hot shower. It wasn't until after I got to the church, got my stuff unpacked, and got ready to step in, that I realized there was no water. The pipes were frozen. I moved on to plan C and ended up at my in-laws house for a quick hair and makeup job (it was getting late by now). When I reached work, it was about 42 degrees below 0 in my office. I turned on my space heater and promptly blew the circuit breaker. I reset the breaker and tried again. Same result. Again. Same result. Apparently, neither being clean or warm were in the plan for me today. Most wonderful time of the year--yeah, whatever.

My Favorite Thanksgiving Conversation

Me (to 5 year old family member, wearing a Beatles shirt): Hey, what does your shirt say?

Him: It says The Beatles

Me: Who are the Beatles?

Him: Nobody

Me: Then what does your shirt mean?

Him: It means a whole bunch of Beetles.

Me: Oh. Well then, what's a Beatle?

Him (looking at me like I'm a complete idiot) A bug, duh.

Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and remembered to be especially grateful for the children in you come in contact with!
