Christmas is coming!

Well Christmas is just around the bend and we are listening to the sounds of rain on our little tin roof and Christmas music emanating from the laptop speakers. There has been a cold front hanging around for the past few days and I am drinking it in! Prior to this time it has rained mostly during the night, but we have had fairly consistent rain for the past three days. My only frustration is that laundry just doesn’t seem to dry in the rain. Hmm…

This is officially our first Christmas spent away from our families so we are doing what we can to make it special. Susie is really working hard to bring in the season. We bought scones at the local shop and Suz just made banana bread (they don’t quite take the place of orange rolls and Challa <sp?>, but what can you do.) We have some champaign in the fridge and most of our presents are wrapped. Travel restriction has just come to an end and Sunday we will be heading out to visit our friend, Joseph, in Durban for a week. After that, it’s off to the Wild Coast along the Indian Ocean for New Years with two fabulous PC friends, Ben and Jennie Bleckley. The trip will be a nice change, allowing us to see more of South Africa and experience more of its people. We leave Abbotspoort on the 23rd and will return on Jan. 4th, refreshed and re-energized for service.

Wherever this Christmas season finds you, we hope you are well and that joy creeps into your heart like a small child creeping into check the stalkings and presents early on Christmas morning, bursting with anticipation and excitement as we share all that we can with those who surround us.

Wishing you Merry Christmas and a joy-filled New Year!
