merry christmas :)

Doing good. Eating lots of tangerines. Drinking lots of coffee. Hanging out with Brad and Kindra. Enjoying loads of Christmas parties--jr high, neighborhood, staff. Discovering a new hidden talent: Boxing on Wii (I'm good). Wearing all the new socks that I got for Christmas. Learning to knit. Reading magazines. Not working.

Every Christmas that I spend away reminds me that Jesus also left his Father on Christmas. Strangely, Christmas makes me want to be home...and strangely, it's actually a holiday when it's poignantly fitting to feel distant. So, in all that, this is the verse that's stood out to me this season:
The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel--which means, God with us. (Mt 1:23)
Distant and close. So baffling to me...

Merry Christmas!!!

Learning to knit? Cool hobby! Keep me informed on what you're inspired to do - what textures, colors, patterns, ideas...I'm in some very non-linear patterns with great fiber knitting right now and LOVING it. Hope you enjoy playing with textures and colors as much as I do!
