Merry Christmas!

At our house, 2014’s been a crazy but wonderful year.

VT (Chris) and Rebecca were married in January, and had a baby (Elizabeth) in October – our first grandchild!

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary in August.

Tom and Tracey got engaged in November (to be married in July 2015),  and we, in anticipation of Rolf’s “retirement” next summer, just got an 8-week old Havanese puppy (Pepper) this week.

Everyone is healthy, happy and doing well.

We are grateful, and feel very, very blessed.

We wish everyone a very Happy, Merry, and Blessed Christmas!

The Grinch Who Mocked Christmas

.

WFA Nativity Scene at Wisconsin State Capitol

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has done it again: in response to a table-top nativity scene being displayed in Wisconsin’s Capitol building rotunda by Wisconsin Family Action (WFA), FFRF has erected their own primitive contraption, featuring a pink-clad girl baby “Jesus,” a Botticelli Venus “blessed mother” declaring “it’s a girl,” and cardboard cut-outs of various historical atheists with speech bubbles proclaiming the folly of religion.  They failed to realize the irony represented by this silly display – a dimensionless cartoon that makes a statement about their philosophy as well.  There is not much substance in a  philosophy that rests primarily on (aggressive) negation of the beliefs of others.

FFRF's mockery of the Nativity - interesting how FFRF invokes one of the 10 Commandments to protect their silly display!

We all know Dr. Seuss’ story How the Grinch Stole Christmas… much like the Grinch, FFRF atheists think that just because they cannot participate in the joy of Christmas, they should try to destroy it for all of us too.

But the power of the newborn King far surpasses the laughable efforts of a few spiteful atheists.

Maybe someday they’ll puzzle ’till their puzzlers are sore, and find out that Christmas, in fact, means a little bit more.

In the meantime, I take the greatest of pleasure in wishing you all a very happy, warm, and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
