NLT

I am an avid reader. One important book to me is the Bible and I have discovered that the New Living Translation is a translation I can read with greater ease. I have entered a contest to win a "One Year Bible" and not only would I win one but I'd win another one to give away.

As the end of the year approaches, many people begin to make a plan for new things to tackle once January 1st hits. Diet plans are made, book club lists are tuned, and the idea of filing your taxes begins to slowly creep into your thoughts. What about your Bible reading? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a Bible that laid out an easy plan to read the entire Bible in just a year? Oh wait, that already exists, it’s called The One Year Bible.

'Tis the season...

..to shiver and shake and freeze our buns off! Snow is falling and so are the temperatures....Brrrr!! Ok, I have a pet peeve which is not to be mistaken for the gratitude I have to the guy driving that huge monstrosity called a snow-plow. Please, for the love of those of us who brave the frigid wind, will you consider NOT plowing the snow in a beautiful high ridge along the entrance of my driveway. You must realize that the height of said ridge is perfect for taking out my car muffler, or for that matter, the entire under-carriage of my small Ford Focus. I am forced to park in the Cul-de-Sac, trudge back and shovel that packed, heavy snow away before I can park in my own freakin' driveway. Humpf!!!

December

Already??!! Well, the calendar doesn't lie! The countdown to Christmas is in earnest now. It seems that once Christmas Eve arrives, in the blink of an eye it's January because we all know that time spent celebrating Christmas just blends into celebrating New Years.
For the first time in years I'm not ready for Christmas and since that's the case I figure I may just as well wait until the pre-Boxing Day sales begin :)

"Christmas is a time of little time.
How we get there is a mystery.
Racing madly mall-to-mall, we climb
Into fields of sunlit harmony.
Shopping, cooking, clearing walks and yards,
Trimming house and tree while working, too;
Making phone calls, wrapping, writing cards,
As all worn out we do what we must do
So that this day of joy might joy renew."
