Merry Christmas
December 22nd, 2007 by Sonja

The ubiquitous “they” say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. So, this is high flattery for Mak, my Colorado friend who is the originator of this stunning idea … a digital Christmas card posted on one’s blog. Or that’s where I originally saw it. I am going to attempt to send out tangible Christmas cards as well this year (made on my Mac) and here is what is written inside:

LightGirl plays hockey, LightBoy plays hockey, Sonja manages LightGirl’s team, LightHusband takes pictures and drives. Yep. We’re a hockey family. Hockey, hockey, hockey. Broken up by the occasional trip to Colorado, Vermont and yes, our 20th wedding anniversary in August. There were a knee injury (LightGirl) and a pancreatitis attack (Sonja) to keep things lively, but we are otherwise healthy, happy and enjoying the holidays with family (Thanksgiving with the Andrews and Christmas with the Naylors).

I am blessed to “know” so many of you through the virtual world of the blogosphere. I have grown through writing and reading all of you as well. May the coming year be one in which you experience the Kingdom’s grace in unexpected places. Peace and Blessings to your home during the holiday season.

    Oh … oops … I should have given credit for that.

    It’s from the Celtic Book of Daily Prayer. I sooo cannot write poetry like that!!! It’s a benediction that I just really love.

    Merry Christmas, Sis! One of the highlights for me of this past year has been getting to know you via your blog. You are a blessing to all of us who have the privilege of reading you.

    If that’s your husband in the photo, he looks like Rick Warren (with maybe a little less hair). Does Warren have a second family on the side? Gives a whole new meaning to purpose-driven!

    My son looks like Rick Warren. And I’ve never seen them both in the same room.
    Happy Holidays!
