Christmas is a funny time. It brings people back together and seems to be a point where a lot of people are happy. Take mom and I for example. We had really no one to have for Christmas, but went to a friend's house and spent it there. We had the best time.

This Christmas was fun too... I got a great gift from mom and she got her PocketPC! It was really great. Everyone was happy again. Perhaps this will last throughout the coming year. At least I hope it will!

Not much other to report. Just working. Can't wait till New Year's Eve... going with the teens to go skiing... fun stuff all around :)

Oh, the Christmas program went great. I threw up right before it, but was fine for the rest of the night. Then in a couple of days I was totally better, which was good because feeling sick is horrible! Anyway, so many people said it touched their lives, which is good. God needs to touch people's lives if we are to win in this battle of good versus evil. We sure as heck can't do anything on our own!

Christmas... bah humbug :) No, actually I'm looking foward to Christmas. Really awesome time of the year... the snow, the presents, the friends, the family, the eggnog. Stuff like that! People just seem to not be happy around this time of year, and that's a bad thing because they should be happy! It's Jesus's birthday! Celebrate!

Well, that's it for right now. I'm at work, so I've got to work... just wanted to add that little blurb :)

I really need to get better about posting on this thing. Last post was on December 3rd. Geesh!

Anyway, you know it's kinda funny. You try to do what's right and then things just seem to bite you in the butt over and over again. Seems like an uphill battle some times. I guess that's life for you, tho :) That's how things go. I guess when you've fallen this far, that is how it will feel for a while. But it's Christ's birthday... it's time to celebrate. Not time to fuss about things.

Speaking of Christmas, boy is it busy. The Christmas program is this Friday. Woohoo! I can't wait. It will be tons of fun. It always is. The choir is spectacular once again. The pianists are pretty good too :) It's a great program. Now all we need to do it put a little God into it and we've got magic. God's magic that is :)

Ooh... I just remembered. I am now officially a Notary Public. That's pretty cool, actually. I know it's a small task, but it's one step closer to getting back on my feet, which is always a good thing.

We had practice tonight and went out to eat with friends afterwards. It's so good to have people who care about you. I don't honestly know what I would do without some of them... including my mother... ha... who'd think that your mother could be so important to your life some times?

OK, well, if it wasn't 12:00 in the morning, I would be practicing piano right now... time's a wasting :) Not too long until the program!

Things have gotten better. I don't miss Megan as much, but as I've suspected, this is a roller-coaster of a ride. Days will come that are good and days will come that are bad. Such is life, huh? Such is love too.

Well, the good news is something I've learned on the 23rd Psalm. Take a look at the first three verses and reverse them. In other words, the first part would be come "The Lord is not my Shepherd. I will always be wanting things". If you do that, it gives new meaning to not being close to God. It kinda described my life before coming back to God. Kinda funny, ya know?

Well, that's it for right now. Tomorrow I have to see if work will pay for college and do tons of work :) We should be getting our jackets tomorrow as well. Pretty cool stuff!
