Well, I have thoroughly enjoyed the blogs of some of my friends, so I thought I might give it a try. I cannot guarantee a certain frequency, length, or enjoyability in my postings, but I will do my best. It is December and I spent the day in capris and a sleeveless shirt. The southern hemisphere will do that to you. Today was our ministry-wide Christmas party, which was a lot of fun. But listening to "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" in the aforementioned outfit is a bit of an oxymoron.
Our White-Elephant gift exchange brought lots of laughs. Our Basotho staff especially got a kick out of this strange "white people" method of giving (and stealing!) gifts.
I do love this time of year. More in the States than in Africa, I absolutely love the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Even here, though, our home is looking and feeling quite festive. We've got our tree up, stockings on the mantle, and snowmen galore throughout the house. I've even got a wonderful Yankee candle scenting our home with the smell of evergreen... Mmmm... I love it!
Joy to the world, the Lord has come!
