Merry Christmas Posted by Picasa


Merry Christmas

This morning over coffee I purused my new Jung's Seed catalog. Visions of springtime danced in my head. Christmas comes right before New Year and is a time for consideration of the past and new beginnings.

I finally figured out that with the Sitemeter I can get an idea of who's reading the blog. My assumption, even while I knew better, was that it was being read by my friends. Sitemeter reveals it's being read by friends I haven't met yet.

My intentions for the blog have always been rather mixed and poorly formed. I'll have to think a little more about purposes. But that's for another time.

Now I wish you all a Merry Christmas!

My friend Nathan sent me some Christmas poems so I'll share with you this one:
So this is Christmas
And what have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young.

A very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so this is Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight.
A very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

So this is Christmas
And what have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young.

A very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

War is over!
If you want it
War is over!
Now!

May the power of God's Christmas love last all year long and help you to maintain or reestablish links of true love with your loved one. In God we all are one divine family of love - a family always starts with husband and wife in love with each other.

Kaunda,

I wish you a very happy Christmas time and a New Year of continued brilliance spread across the world through your blog. I really envy the snow and the crisp air that comes out of the picture. Tanzania does not provide much of that sort of pleasure!
