This is going to be a thin Christmas for gift giving. Not that we cannot afford it, but what's the purpose of spending lots of money on stuff?
When asked what I want this year, I came up with this: a gold cross necklace, a couple of books. Really, I couldn't come up with more.
Oh sure, I wouldn't mind an iPad but it's $500 and I have a perfectly serviceable netbook.
So this will be more sedate Christmas. Will get the kids the stuff on their wish lists.
And I will remember the Lord in all this. THAT'S the true meaning of Christmas, and if the truth be told, that's the true meaning of every day, isn't it?
God bless you, everyone!
