Happy New Year Tomorrow!

Psalm 123:1-2
"To You I lift up my eyes,
O You who are enthroned in the
Behold, as the eyes of servants look
to the hand of their master,
As the eyes of a maid to the hand of
her mistress,
So our eyes look to the LORD our
Until He is gracious to us."

May your 2010 be filled with grace and peace.

Christmas is almost here! Merry Christmas everybody!
Our cat brings us much entertainment these days...outside of computer and old TV programs and videos / DVDs!
We've started listening to some old cassette tapes which is quite fun after not listening for years probably.
I think about not wanting to wear out the cassette players, but then I lose out on listening while I may!
My sister worked hard to get some medical info. sent, and after some mistakes on others parts they have finally been sent! Hooray! Please pray for wisdom of the doctor/surgeon on what to do with the information.
We give gifts for Christmas on Christmas Eve Day or evening, so Christmas is mostly just for thinking about Jesus' birth and eating yummy food. Actually, we will probably go ahead and have the Mexican food again this year as well. It's our nonconformist tradition for a number of years.
Our family also has a tradition of a Christmas to some mission agency for needy people. It can be for something like Spectrum ministries or Action International. We might have given through Compassion Intl. before too. Anyway, it is very low key for those who want to or are able to participate here in our household. It's fun to give for those who are really in need.
We don't usually spend a lot on each other either.
Well, other than listening to Christmas songs or singing or hearing the Christmas story, that's about all I can think of we might do for Christmas.
Hope yours is great!

Let It Snow!

Well, I tried sledding (tobogganing) today for the first snow of the season. It was a bit slow, as it wasn't too hard or deep. I just tried 3 times, and it seems like it might not snow enough more to do much. Still, it was fun to make a snowman, and I even went along for the ride for my sister's shopping outing!
I'm having pain from my fibro., etc., but I even managed to help out by making hummus today. It needed less salt, but oh, well...still not too bad.
It seems very exciting coming from somewhere where snow didn't fall normally. I did live for a few years where it snowed in the mountains (No it didn't snow the whole time we were there!)! Well, we could see snow where I used to live from a distance sometimes, and there was at least a couple of strange hailstone storms where they accumulated. Believe me, I was very excited just for that! Snow is still a novelty, and I hope we will have more. I don't want it when we have appointments though!
