Birth of the Savior

“In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register.

“So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

“And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.’” – Luke 2: 1-12

The rain in Southern California has ceased (for now), and I’ve never been so glad to see the sun. Merry Christmas, readers.

Balmy November

November 13, 2008

It’s about 50 degrees in DC (former home) right now. Not bad. But it’s 86 degrees in SoCal (new home). Clear, balmy, and slightly breezy. In the middle of November. I officially don’t know how to act. I like winter: the ice and snow (yeah, I know…strange), frigid, overcast mornings, clothes layering, hats, gloves… But […]

Tuesday, May 6 @ 6:42 a.m. PT: Thanks for the birthday wishes, everyone! I met country singer Rissi Palmer last Friday at the Stagecoach Festival.
