Christmas Strikes Another Red Letter Day!

Christmas Light

Christmas at Another Red Letter Day

Well, yesterday (Sunday actually) I went Christmas tree hunting. We cut down a beautiful 6 footer and had a little picnic in the rain and brought it home and put it up in the living room.

This has managed to get me far enough into the Christmas spirit to decide that for the last 2 weeks until Christmas (the next 9 week days and Christmas day) I will blog from some of the more Christmassy passages and perhaps keep things on the lighter side.

It will all culminate with my Christmas List. I just finished this on Saturday morning and I am excited to share it with you all.

My pastor started his advent sermons this year with one called God the giver, and I liked the idea. So I decided to go through the Bible and create and simple list of 66 examples of God giving – one from each book of the Bible. Man has it helped me realize what an awesome God we serve.

So thanks for reading. If you have a real Bah Humbug about you – well – get over it.

BenSee you tomorrow.

    Oh I'm looking forward to all you have to give/share with us, Ben!! (And I confess I'm relieved that you're going to do "light" for awhile--since it's Christmas!) No Bah-Humbug stuff going on with me--but maybe you could speak a little brilliance to those of us who have some anxiety about when Christmas is over--the post-holidays crash/blues. I know "in my head", that "we" (believers) have Christmas all year long--but emotionally, the excitement and anticipation and busy-ness kind of screech to a halt on Jan 1st or 2nd. What's the antidote for that, Brother? God bless you and the fam--love, sis Caddo (PS--wish I could see your tree, will you show us pictures??)

      perhaps some pix when we get the decorations up. I am more of a Whew it finally over kind of guy, so not sure i can help with the anxiety piece. But who knows
      God is paying close attention to you, so I am sure He will have some suggestions along the way.

        Okay, now I'm spooked--God has his Eye on me! Must be a guy-thing, the "Whew, it's finally over" deal. Woman attach sentimental significance to every piddly detail and moment...now, if you come back and tell me Corrinne's not like this--well, maybe she's more "evolved". Later, Bro--
