Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Well it's my 7th married Christmas and boy am I grateful! Three awesome kids and a wonderful wife. Even the dog and cat are impressing me lately.

I love the time to relax and hang out with family. I do miss dad and think about him more during these big events. Some people say that time heals all wounds but I disagree. I do however think much good can come from this as we learn to value and appreciate the people we have in our lives.

My twin brother is getting married next month!!!! I won't be able to go unfortunatley but man ohh man are we excited for him. The kids can't wait to meet Aunt Che.

My little sister Jenny is still in Sherwood Park, near Edmonton, with Shane and the kids. Her presence is very much missed even more (if that's possible) during the holidays.

I just saw 6 people baptised last Sunday!! I've always loved baptisms as I get to see people make public proclamations for Christ! What a great reminder to live each day for Him and with purpose.

God bless to all our family and friends. (We'll even throw in the odd stranger reading this. God bless you this holiday!!!)

Mary Did You Know

I love this Christmas song too. Perhaps it will be more appreciated than my other Christmas picks:>)

Baby It's Cold Outside

Here's the better version honey, without that creep, Tom Jones.

Having just finished the Shultz book, I was remembering this clip which was mentioned. I love it!

Well I just finished this book given to me by my buddy, Sam, for my birthday. I found it to be very sad, perhaps bordering on depressing. If they wanted a subtitle for the book I would suggest, "How Then Should We Not Live".

Here's his last comic strip which appeared ar0und the world just hours after Charles Shultz's death.
One of his last statements reflecting on his life and career was, "You know, that poor kid, he never even got to kick the football. What a dirty trick- he never had a chance to kick the football."
I enjoyed watching THIS INTERVIEW he had on the Charlie Rose show. He comes on the show at 20 minutes and 18 seconds so you'd have to let it buffer/load to that point.

My Favorite Christmas Song

Lots of snow lately but it didn't truly feel like Christmas until I heard this song today. Man, I'm getting old, my co-worker told me he never heard of this song! It's my favorite Christmas song.

Okay, I rethought my last post. Realizing that, of course, not everyone voted the same as me, nor do they necessarily have the same view point as me. This is not a blog of political statements and for that reason I have deleted it and will not talk further on the subject. If you are interested in reading here is a site for your viewing if you choose. All I can say is, the political situation of Canada is definitely making history and it is amazing all that has happened.

Boney M. - Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord (1978)

Well it's getting close to Christmas and Starla's blog put Boney M in my head. (A little more festive than a baby Hitler I suppose :>)
