Merry Christmas (with some jumbled thoughts)

I’ve been pretty busy this week with work (stalking -haha) and getting more involved at church (cleaning/moving and semi-street ministry). I’m pretty proud of myself. Usually, my past Christmas “vacations” end up having me wasting time, waking up really late in the morning and then watching TV all day. Not doing anything important at all. But, my productivity has been up this year, and I’ve gotten lots of things accomplished. Haven’t been on the computer as much too, which is why I’m typing unimportant things right now (meanwhile, 6 billion + people could care less, which is fine). I’ve been doing quite a bit of reading too in my down time too.

I finished reading 2 Chronicles and Ezra, (slowly going through the entire Bible) as well as Essential Punisher Vol. 1, Wolverine: Origin, and Batman: Year One (…what? I found them at the library! They mainly had stupid Garfield comics when I was younger, not this cool stuff…). I will also be starting to read Chinatown : An illustrated history of the Chinese Communities of Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax by Paul Yee. I’ll try to write a review of it when I’m done. Looking forward to it.

To everyone, Merry Christmas. My plans for tomorrow are to head to church for the morning service, have some meaningful fellowship there and then have some meaningful fellowship later with family and lots of food at home. It’s important to remember this isn’t just a “happy holiday,” (pffff...stupid politically correct tools...) but instead, the time we celebrate the coming of God in human form as Jesus Christ. Humbly born in a dirty, stinky, animal barn, (not a palace), and who later became the Saviour for all people of every colour and tongue in the entire world, whether they believe it’s true or not.

I hate how instead the true meaning of Christmas being known, its overshadowed by corporate and shopping greed, political correctness, stupid light displays, meaningless decorations, TV re-runs and “holiday specials, more political correctness, fat bearded hippies in a red suits, and people trying to convince their children that one particular fat bearded hippy in a red suit will bring them presents when they sleep on December 24th. Oh well. This lie will continue for years to come. And it seems that these other things that I hate probably won’t be going away soon either. Sigh.

I think that’s enough of my thoughts and ramblings for now.

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. "
Luke 2:14 (KJV)

"fat bearded hippies in a red suits" - LOL. ya it's sad how more kids are taught to believe in Santa rather than God. Anyway, see you either on the bus or in Calgary!
