Its that time of year again when the lights are out and the carols are being sung. The big corporations are gearing up to make massive profits and see all of their hard work in advertising useless products to the masses pay off. The time when the malls and stores are filled to breaking point with all things Christmas and Santa related.
The same time of year where the liberals and atheists lose their minds because mangers are place don public display and because people dare to say "Merry Christmas" without first checking to make sure that the person it is directed at is not offended by the word "Christmas".
Its the time of year when we are all rushing around like mad people trying to get everything closed off and wound down so that we can maybe take a bit of time off to celebrate the biggest commercial holiday of the year.
But for some of us, it is a time when we get to sit back and reflect on the year that was. To give praise and worship to God for bringing us through our daily hardships and for keeping us sane through the stupidity that is the progressive liberal world of the 21st century. A time for quiet and fort reflection and for regeneration. A time to clear out the dirt that has accumulated in our lives and minds so that we can start it all over again in the new year. A time for being grateful to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for His sacrifice for us and for His guidance throughout the year.
To this end, my husband and I will be going away over the next few weeks and will be getting back to nature. We will be camping out in the gorgeous South African bush - away from all interruptions and the noise of the city. We will not have access to news and current affairs and will not be bothering ourselves with any of it until the new year.
I know that blogging has been light for the past few months but I do make a promise that one of my new years resolutions is that I will be blogging a lot more frequently when we get back.
So to that end, I want to wish each and every single one of you who reads this blog and happy and blessed Christmas and a restful and prosperous new year!
