Apres Christmas

Well I'm having the hardest time getting back into a blogging mood. Something about Christmas seems to have sapped my writing energy. I just feel lawless :-)

Actually Christmas was good for me. We had lots of snow and I still need to go out in the morning and shovel (sigh) and though I missed Christmas in the sunshine and with the folks at home I tried to make the best of it.

Anyway not much to say today. Like I said I'm having a hard time writing. I guess the only thing really on my mind is actually pretty somber for this time of year so I'm kind of wavering on whether to talk about it. Oh well why not.

Well this year's Christmas was rather sobering for me. Thursday night I found out that a real close friend of mine had a heart attack (she's alive and out of the hospital recovering thank God) and then on Friday I found out that another friend of mine here had lost a brother and some other family members this season. So all in all the seasonal celebrations for me have been tempered by a lot of somber thoughts. Think I did a post about death a while back though so I wont repeat myself.

Suffice is to say that while some are celebrating some are grieving and some are recovering. That's life I guess.

I know it sounds weird but I was very upset over the death of Reggie White. :(
Lost another Christian soldier.

I didn't know him, but I feel it for his family.

Sorrow in joy is life's ying & yang, isn't it? No matter how happy we are, it's like there's always de fear ov some-fing goin' wrong--and then we actually hear ov some disaster or other, which justifies de fear.

yea solitaire the Reggie White thing shocked me yesterday as well. Pretty sad to be dying of a heart attack at 43.

I have over the years noticed that there is always some sadness that someone close to us has to deal with. Hence the reason why I say that we should enjoy the season as if its our last. For we know not when it will be our turn to have the Lord call our number.
