Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Posted: December 26th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Personal | 4 Comments »

I wanted to take a moment to thank those who do read my blog, whether you comment here or not. I deliberately chose a “boring” theme, do not pursue “hits” or an “audience”, and write posts that most people probably wouldn’t find interesting. If you read my stream of consciousness musings (other than my celiac-related posts) then you’re probably either family or a real-life friend. If you are someone who only knows me online and yet still reads my blog, please recognize that you’re probably a tad unusual. 😉 But I certainly appreciate you.

Christ is born! Glorify Him!

It’s a short exclamation, but there is a world of meaning contained in it. This day, the day after Christmas, is the Synaxis of the Theotokos, I believe. The juxtaposition of the feasts should resonate in our minds and in our hearts. Sometimes I feel like I have relatively little to say, but I say it again and again in different ways. Maybe that’s how it is with all of us. We have the small window of our experience, but when others engage it, the ripples flow outward in ways we could never imagine.

If you would like to say Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, or offer any other sort of greeting, feel free to do so in the comments to this post.

Grace and peace to you all!

    Christ is born, indeed! Perhaps the greatest song we could ever sing is ‘Joy to the world, the Lord has come.’

    Though I stop by often and comment very little, I enjoy your musings. and, of course, am grateful for the real-time friendship we share.

    love to you and yours…
