Merry Christmas!!

Our tree
Yep. I know it's December 27th. But it's the first time I've been online since before Christmas, so bear with  me. Plus, as I've said before, I celebrate the twelve days of Christmas, so it's really just Merry Third Day of Christmas.

If you don't know, the twelve days of Christmas are the twelve days from Christmas Day (Day One) to Epiphany, January 6th, when one celebrates the wisemen arriving. It's part of the Church Year, which is totally aweseome and deserves it's own post. One time I gave a spur of the moment speech about it to my eclectically Christian Bible Study (we have Southern Baptists, Presbyterians, Seventh Day Adventists, nondemonitional, etc) and had everyone like "Wow! We should do that!"  That was awesome.

My Christmas was great. I don't want to be materialistic but I got a digital camera and a Nook!!  Very exciting! I wasn't expecting both. I'd asked for them, but thought I'd just get one big item, but I was surprised with both. I also got a couple shirts, some yarn, some jewelry, some chocolate, some gift certificates, and a few other items.  It was very nice. 

Because I now own my own digital camera, expect more photos! But not too many more, and they'll be re-sized, because I still have dial-up!

Hmm.  Well to end off my "Christmas" post I'd love you to meditate on the words of my favorite Christmas carol:

O Come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant, o come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem! Come and behold Him, born the kings of angels. O come let us adore Him! O come let us adore Him! O come let us adore Him! Christ, the Lord!

Sing, choirs of angels! Sing in exaltation!! O sing all ye citizens of heaven above! Glory to God, Glory in the Highest! O come let us adore Him! O come let us adore Him! O come let us adore Him; Christ, the Lord!

Yea, Lord we greet Thee, born this happy morning! Jesus, to Thee be glory given! Word of the Father: now in flesh appearing! O come let us adore Him! O come let us adore Him! O come let us adore Him, Christ, the Lord!
