I know I just posted but...

I found this over at the sojourners blog...

"When the song of the angel is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost — To heal the broken — To feed the hungry –
To release the prisoner — To rebuild the nations –
To bring peace among brothers and sisters –
To make music in the heart."

- Howard Thurman

3 reasons why christmas was insane...

Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and all but come on people...

Santa with a hot babe on his motorbike.

A pre-decorated "Thomas Kinkade - painter of light" collectible tree. And...

This house is entitled, "The gang's all here!" Wowy. Well, hope your days were merry and bright. Happy new year!

A coming wave

I was dancing with my 3 year old girl, Stella in our living room. She had pure joy on her face as we danced, marched and twirled around.

A concept in Orthodox theology is that the trinity is in this state continually. They dance and invite us to the dance. This is life, stepping in time with the Trinity.

I took Stella's hands and we started to spin. Her smile widened and as I lifted her from the ground to swing her free, there was a tiny flash of panic and then sheer laughter...complete happiness.

That must be what death is like. We're learning how to dance in step with a loving Father and family. Suddenly abandon, trust, a flash of panic then laughter and light. We're all one step closer. Let's dance.

It's Christmastime again!

No one asked for it, but here it is...Chaz and Donald (pronounced t'onalt) serve up a steaming holiday classic! Enjoy...I think.
