Snug and happy on Christmas

Merry Christmas to all our dear family and friends.

Deep in snow (it looks like Aspen around here), all electrical outlets still conducting electricity for the essentials (TVs, DVD players, X Box and Computers), cinnamon rolls and coffee on the table and everyone lounging in pj's, we are feeling very Christmas-y.

I like this definition of Christmas (from friend and pomoxian Dave Blakeslee) and thought I'd share it here:

Christmas at its best is about patient waiting drawing to a close, hope finding its fulfillment, with the promise of even better things to come gaining credibility because we've seen with our eyes and heard with our ears the manifestation of God's presence among us.
