Merry Christmas

I will be taking the next several days off, so I will try not to blog during that time as well.  So I wanted to be sure to send out a Merry Christmas to everyone (in the world).  One of the reasons that I love blogging is that I really do get to send my thoughts out to everyone at once, but not in a forceful agree with me or else manner.  Anyway, Merry Christmas.

I am really looking forward to Christmas this year as Judah is old enough to start to get what we are doing.  I think that will make it so much more fun.


And of Course I love Jesus so his birth is a pretty big deal to me.  Something that I always try to remember is that Jesus is birthed in people’s hearts everyday of the year and I need to celebrate that as well.  I’m not going to buy everyone presents or anything, but I can’t lose sight of the fact that Jesus birth is about salvation, and that happens all the time.  So Party!


That’s another reason why I think egg nog should be sold all year long.  Come to think of it, I have not had any egg nog yet this month.  I should fix that.  Merry Christmas!


Be Yourself

Today I read a great post from Tim Schmoyer.  You can read it here. I think it is so important to lead from your strengths.  I have found that I am happier and I am doing more, and better when I lead from my strengths.  This post is written to youth workers but really it can be applied to anyone in ministry.
