Hello everyone!

I know it has been a long time since I’ve posted an article here. I wanted to let you know that I haven’t forgotten you; I’ve just been busy with other things. Unlike some bloggers, this is just a hobby for me, and not part of my full time occupation. Each post I write involves a couple of days of reading and research before I start to put my thoughts into sentences. This fall, I have not had the time to do that as I have been taking a couple of courses that keep me very busy. By the time I do the reading and studying required for the courses, I don’t have what it takes to do some more. I haven’t quit though. I plan to be back early in the new year, ready to share some more thoughts with you. I hope you will be back then too.

In the meantime, I wish you all a very Blessed Christmas--a time of peace, joy and refreshing.

Here’s a bonus for my Twitter followers:
One of the courses I am taking is an online class on the lands of the Bible. In one lesson, our prof asked us how we would tweet about the events we had just discussed. One of my fellow students took up the challenge admirably, and because he received such positive feedback, he started a Twitter account to continue with other Bible events. I thought they were fun, and thought you might think so too. Check him out at @Laceduplutheran. If you like what he posts, give him a follow.

Those of you who have been regular readers of my posts for some time, will remember the story of Albert and Rita Chretien who were stranded in the Nevada wilderness. Rita was found alive on May 6, 2011.

On September 29, 2012, Albert Chretien's body was found by elk hunters, 11 kilometres from where the van had been stranded. He had been going in the right direction to find help, but the terrain was steep and wooded, and the snow was up to ten feet deep at the time. His body was found intact with identification still in his pocket.

Thank you to all of my readers who have prayed for this family. They are thankful that his body has been found, they know what happened to him, and they can have closure, but I know that they would appreciate your continued prayers as they go through this emotional time.
