May your Christmas or holiday season be filled with joy!  Thank you for sharing part of your life with me in my blogging journey. I enjoy having met so many of you.  Keep in contact in 2014 and let me know what you’re thinking and how you like what I’m blogging.

Luke 2

1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to their own town to register.

4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Sunday spam

I don’t often notice my WordPress spam folder but every so often, I realize some content has been added and I take a look.  The spam generally provides me quite a bit of amusement because it’s so obviously spam!  I don’t know about you, but I don’t know anyone who sends me lengthy emails in foreign languages, interspersed periodically with bits of English that don’t make sense.  That type of spam has much in common with watching the Spanish television stations (for those of us who don’t speak Spanish):  minutes of the fastest talk on the planet suddenly broken by “Coca Cola” or some other English word.  Does anyone ever accidentally OK those messages or go to the sites from which they come?

Today’s (Tuesday as I write this) is my one year blogging anniversary, so I want to take the first part of this post to say thanks to all of you who read, “like”, and comment regularly, irregularly, or even just once.  I remember wondering whether anyone other than my family would ever read one of my posts and how excited I was when I got my first non-family “like” and then my first non- family follower.  Now I enjoy hearing from many of you almost every day and I love that!

Blogging is like crack

I wake at 4 again this morning, eye the clock, then decide, “No, too early”, considering my later night last night and the faint caffeine and brain buzz that kept me just this side of the edge of sleep for awhile.  Besides, today I don’t have to cross two time zones, losing two hours in one day.
