Maligayang Pasko!

That's how they say "Merry Christmas" in the Philippines. I've been shouting it at people all week. I've gotten some strange looks.

Snow continues to fall in Kansas, and the capital city is shut down for the duration. I have spent the day reading, eating and sleeping. At least one cat and the dog have joined me in all of these activities.

It occurred to me last night, some might think I was upset at spending Christmas alone.

First, it is impossible to be alone in a house with seven critters. Second, it is impossible to be alone when Jesus is in your heart. Third, it is impossible to be alone while electricity and phone lines are active.

I am blessed to live near the majority of my family. I see them on a regular basis. I would far rather know they are home safe and warm than worry about them being damaged or stranded on their way to a turkey dinner.

I ate a ground turkey dinner, with peas, onions and rice. It was delicious.

I have fixed the "contact me" page on my website. You should now actually be able to "contact me."
Too bad no one was able to contact me to let me know it wasn't working :)

I continue to pray for the safety of all travelers this Christmas. Being safe is more important than being home. Trust me on this.

God bless us, everyone!
