A Very Merry Christmas

Christmas Eve 2008 is almost over here in Perth but I know it’s only just beginning in other places around the world.

I also know that many regular readers won’t be reading blogs tomorrow so I’ll get in early and take the opportunity to wish you and yours a very happy day as you celebrate Christmas wherever you are in the world. Many will be experiencing a white Christmas while here in Perth, Western Australia, we have a mild summer day forecast. Much better than the scorcher we had last year.

Remember to pace yourself throughout the day so that you don’t regret it all on Boxing Day and don’t forget to take time out to reflect on what Christmas is truly all about.

Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men. – Luke 2:14

I’ll probably still write a post or two while I work on Christmas Day. I’ll be doing my normal morning radio programme from 9:00 a.m. to midday on 98.5 Sonshine FM so I should get a chance to send a few words into cyberspace.
