Well, here I start my Christmas Alliance posting. I told the Random Yak that I might be able to come up with a few simple-minded Christmas reflections and I will attempt to be good to my word.
I love Christmas. But it usually sneaks up on me and stresses me out in about mid December. So this is a good thing that I am working on something to remind me that it is coming… with all its joy and tinsel and such.
One thing I was considering this year was forgoing poinsettias. Why you might ask? Well here is an article that just made me go ick. I can not think of a single thing that would be more of an affront to our Lord than spending money where I know part of it will go to support
Planned Parenthood the murder of unborn children on the celebration of His birth. But.. I think I may go hog wild now because of this:
Down Home Ranch from their site
Down Home Ranch seeks to be faithful to the Christian mission to provide for those in need.
The mission of Down Home Ranch is to build a rural, self-reliant community for adults with mental retardation, offering training, housing, recreation, and dignified employment, as well as opportunities for growth in mind, body, and spirit.
Some of my readers may remember that I have a daughter who is severely autistic and while her issues are more profound than the issues that the Down Home Ranch supports I can’t help but feel good to see these young people here in such a lovely place.
