Merry Christmas!!

Well, I wracked my brain all day for the perfect Christmas entry. I wanted to write something fresh and new, something that would blow your bloggy socks off. But everything I came up with boiled down to the same old thing: thanks for being my friends.

In a sign that I’m too wrapped up in this thing, I left for our Christmas Eve service actually fretting about a blog entry!

When I got to church, I discovered that the title of the Christmas message was “The Same Old Thing.” The pastor said that he was wrapped up in trying to make this the Best. Christmas. Ever. He wanted to come up with some whiz-bang new message that would blow our churchy socks off.

But that’s not what we come to hear on Christmas Eve. We come to sing the same old songs and tell the same old story. It is the perfect story, told for the umpteenth time. And why mess with it?

And, so, I’m not going to bother trying to blow your bloggy socks off. I’ll simply and humbly tell you that I have the bestest friends in the world. I hope that you get everything your hearts desire this year and for the rest of your lives. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I love you all.
