My my my my my, it has been too long hasn’t it! These past couple of months have been quite refreshing. I actually almost forgot how to log on to my computer momentarily. Now that I am back there is much to be done. I feel like this break has changed the way I use the computer. Now that everyone is used to that I do not intent to change it.
These past couple of months have been busy, of course, with a new job (please be nice to telemarketers, they are real people) and traveling that should get under way again soon. I did enjoy this recent trip. I not only got to see family, but also got to meet some amazing people ad heard they are readers. Thanks for all your encouragement, love, and prayers guys!
The winter/Christmas season is upon us once again. That time of the year when we remember the miraculous birth and just what it means to have “God with us.” It is a time when compassion and generosity runs high and romance too. No, certainly not for me, but I have had two friends get engaged this month.
Sadly I wonder why we wait all year to act like Christians. Where is the compassion, generosity and love (non-romantic) that we are supposed to show during other times of the year?
This is also the time to snuggle into your warm winter clothes, grab a cup of cocoa, and enjoy the snow outside…Hold it…what snow? I don’t know about where you are, but here it has been in the 50s and 40s. Yesterday and today have been our first real winter like days. I keep looking at the weather in Kiev and wishing it this way. I’m definitely dreaming of a white Christmas! It could still happen…
Well, that about sums it up, I mean there could be a lot more to tell, but you know being a blog and all…what? Oh, you actually want to hear about The Hobbit?
Well okay, but just a little bit. It was great. There are some things I could knit-pick about, but I am trying to be lenient. There are some things out of order, places I wish they’d spent more time and others less, a few character differences, and I do wish they had included more songs . If you are a book fan then whether or not you like it will depend a lot on you. I will say, just to dispel some concerns, there is no romance developed between Gandalf and Galadriel. So to sum it all up- I liked it.
Okay that really will have to be it for now. Perhaps I will stop in again before next month…perhaps not…
Merry Christmas and remember what this holiday truly means!
