I have MUCH to do yet this Christmas season. I read on Facebook that many friends already have their trees up and homes decorated. I'm not that far yet. I have however, finished about 1/2 my Christmas shopping. Well, it's something :) Let the season of merriment begin!!!

Have any of you bloggers ever started a post, edited, re-written, and edited some more, only to delete the whole post and quit?! Yeah, I just did that. I had this long soap-box style speech about how the government and businesses bow to the wishes of the minority. I went on to rant my opinions over stores refusing to use the phrase Merry Christmas, or print it in any of their ads. Then the whole thing got so discombobulated that I just ended up deleting it for fear that no one would want to read an 80 page soliloquy about what I think! So, in an effort to spare you, here's what I originally said: Proudly proclaim "Merry Christmas!" to everyone this year, and don't worry about offending someone. Sheesh! Some of us have to make everything harder than it needs to be :)

Cory came home and told me that Avista made him permanent!!!! We are soooo excited. The Lord is good. We've been praying about Cory's career for a good 3 years now, and he's applied (and been rejected) by Avista several times. Finally, in God's timing he applied, got the 6 month temporary position and now has a full time regular position. It was quite the leap of faith, giving up a good job with his old company, to take on a position that may or may not go permanent, but it paid off and God has blessed our family. What a mighty God we serve!
