As we celebrate the joy of the Nativity of our Lord, Jesus Christ, we at would like to wish all of our visitors a blessed holiday season. I would also like to send a special word of thanks to all of our volunteer contributors, who contribute their gifts and talents so freely to support and encourage our community of readers.  YOU are and I thank God every day for the "front row seat" that enables me to be inspired by the writing you share!

We will be taking a "blog break" to enjoy time with our families and to truly worship during this holiday season. I hope you'll use this time to enjoy previous features on the site and to relax and "unplug" a bit in your own way. We'll be back to our regular schedule on January 5th, 2012.

May the joy of this Christmas season truly be with you and your families!
