20 11 2012

t’s really odd being in Hong Kong, weather is 25C and seeing Christmas displays. You gotta admit, they do it up big. In Times Square they have a Lego display for Christmas:

1) Snowman

The Birth of our Saviour

24 12 2009

All this took place to fulfil what the Lord had said through the prophet: ‘The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel’ – which means, ‘God with us.’

When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
(Matthew 1:22-25)

THIS is what Christmas is about.  Not gifts, not Santa Claus, not Turkey, Trees or wrapping and bows.  It’s about God’s love for us – mankind.

Merry Christmas!  May the Peace of our Lord shine upon us in all we do.





Merry Christmas World!

Dear World,

Merry Christmas!

Let love and peace enter your hearts at all times, not just during Christmas. Put aside your differences and look for common ground with your "enemies"

Sincerely,

Me.





White Christmas?

11 12 2008

With the impending snow this weekend here in Vancouver… it made me think of this little gem from a year or two ago… I LOVE it….   What a GREAT rendition of “White Christmas”

Props to Mesa Software for hosting it… the free site in France that hosted the original is unfortunately dead and gone 😦  [Update – Christmas 2009… Mesa is blocking it with a 403 😦  Bandwidth must have been a bitch)

So, get your groove on and start tappin’ your toes, because it’s a DOO WOP White Christmas!

I’ve also uploaded it to a SWF hosting site: http://megaswf.com/view/efb5bdc8bf755963eaebf0a142da9e2b.html
