Things to Celebrate!

* We have street lights again!

* Church groups from all over the U.S. are doing their best to give Coast families and children Christmas. The Lutheran-Episcopalian group gave holiday boxes for my church families this week. So generous! So kind!

* I've entertained both of my clergy groups, denominational and personal, this week. The LH cooked meals Tuesday and Thursday nights. Interesting conversation with great food hits the Holiday spot!

*I had lunch with one of my favorite pals and got to catch up with her.

*A church in Texas sent ME a holiday gift! Yipee!

*Only a few more days until LD returns home for Christmas break!

*Congress approved aid for Gulf Coast rebuilding! Sen. Lott sues his insurance company!

*Sect. of Defense, Donald Rumfield, gets defensive with Melissa Block of NPR!

*I contemplate making a Grace Texas Cake for the holidays!

What's up with you?

I may have a suitcase full of toys on the plane with me, due to a breakdown in communications between a parent and teacher at our elementary school. May we call them Epiphany presents?

:) so glad that you are being blessed. It warms my heart :)

Songbird - I had forgotten you will visit St C. I am SO happy for you both :) (and a tad envious, so I confess it here and hope for absolution)

It really gives Advent an added dimension -- all those texts in the prophets promising comfort and joy to those in exile. Even some modest hints of Christmas are promising the same good news to the people down there who really need to hear it. Great to hear.

I think it is wonderful you and Songbird are getting together - hope pictures will be taken!

What kind of cake? Grace Texas Cake? What is that?
