Getting close

It is getting close to Christmas Day.

Christmas Eve is at mom and dad's house with nearly 50 of the close family. There is a dinner. There are presents. There is singing. There is Bible reading. There is praying. There is singing of Silent Night in German.

Today was shopping for last minute and forgotten gifts. It was an exercise in aggravation. There were big crowds, big traffic, and big headaches. It was great to see mans inhospitality to man in action. Have people never heard the words, "Excuse me?" they never use it and when hearing it they seem oblivious to its meaning or intent.

There will be more news later. We are going back out later to shop and sing.
