2006 has been a difficult year for me personally. I was finally forced to face a number of physical and emotional issues (many were interdependent) and take steps necessary to correct them.
Recently I have decided to take the advice of my therapist and let some things go. As you can tell from the infrequent posts here, one of them was this blog. I'm not 'out of business,' but my light blogging has been a measure necessary to allow me to get many other things under control.
Last year, I posted a series of Christmas scripture excerpts. If you haven't read Luke's account of the birth of Christ in a while, please take a moment to read them:
Two weeks ago, I wrote a piece for our church newsletter about Joseph, husband of Mary. I am including it below the page fold if you would like to read it.
May everyone have a joyous and blessed Christmas season, and may the grace and peace of God surround you in the coming year.
Merry Christmas everyone. See you all next year.
