Post-Christmas…

A look at the Calendar,
The date that’s Christmas day,
Is already past…

Like any other day…
It came, hours ticked on,
Soon it was over…

To some,
It was a day special,
In more ways than one,

To others,
It was just another day…
Normal routine,
No marking it in any way…

Either way,
Christmas Day…
The Biggest Birthday….
Is a great day,
An amazing holy-holiday…

Christmas Day 2011…How It Was For Me…

 

24th December 2011late afternoon found me on my way to the office. Well, there I was headed to work, while my mind was imagining what I would be missing in the evening…The Christmas Eve Experience 2011…hours was dragging by, and to make matters worse, I was down with terrible headache which seemed to be getting worse by the minute and was feeling quite sickly…How can I fall sickly on a whole Christmas Eve whereas I have been well all year through?? At some point, I took a break, to pray that I get well, as to make it through the night. He’s Jehovah Rapha, who knows the exact diagnosis and how to fix it…Thankfully I felt better…

At clicking in of Christmas Day I was at work…the clock ticked on, couldn’t wait for morning to come…soon it was dawn, it was so refreshing to see the night sky lighting up through the window…Got busy winding up work for the night duty praying that nothing comes up that would delay me at the office past my shift time…

Thankfully, my colleague taking over shift got to the office early. Leaving the office, I hoped to catch a PSV as fast so that I could get home early…Well, I was working over night and the sensible thing to do was to go rest, but I wasn’t thinking of anything like that…rather, mind was on how I would go prepare myself and head to Church for Christmas Service, which I couldn’t imagine missing…having missed the Christmas Eve Concert.

As I went to Church, my prayer was that I would stay fully alert…you know there comes time try as one might to stay alert one fails…

Going to Church was the right thing for me to do, I got there long before service began and it was exciting right from the moment I got there, a beautiful day…and with all the ‘Merry Christmas’ salutations…

Service was so enjoyable right from the start… I didn’t even slightly doze …I just couldn’t afford that! After service, it was time to briefly meet a few of my Church friends before going back to the house…

There was lunch to be served at Church, but just couldn’t wait…I had to get home soonest, catch some sleep for soon it would be time to go to the office for me…

I got home at around 13:30hrs…and the only thing I could do was sleep….15:30hrs was to find me waking up to prepare to go to work…given the distance I have to travel to the office…

I got to the office a short while before 18hrs and that’s the time I made some tea and had it with some bread…as breakfast, cum lunch since I hadn’t had anything to eat all day…

…Work could now begin…another long night ahead…Christmas day Night at the office…

That is how my Christmas day was…

Despite all that, I’ve been so glad, I think this was the best Christmas for me…with assurance that the reason for the season is with me, I’m good…

Just me and my Lord…enough reason to be joyful…

**To you reading this, I hope you had a Merry Christmas, the way you like it…God bless you**

Merry Christmas!!

 

It’s not about:
Where you may be,
Where you may go,
Who you may be with,
What you may eat and drink…
What gifts you may give or receive,

It’s about,
The reason for the season,
The best gift ever given,
The gift that’s Jesus unto mankind…

Celebrate our Lord!

Wishing you all Season’s Blessings…

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Is Knocking…!

 

Knock, Knock…
Here comes Christmas…
A day many look forward to…
With great plans for the day…
Where to go,
Where to be,
Who to be with,
What to eat and drink,
What to give,
With hopes to receive…

It’s day of joy and cheer
Celebrations seem to be all over
Infectious is the festive mood…
‘Merry Christmas…!’ sound like the one acceptable salutation…

Well…
Way to go…join in the celebrations…
Not necessarily elaborate…
Celebration can just be within…

Christmas 2010; How it was for me II

Christmas Day

It’s 25th December at last, Christmas day! Happy Birthday Jesus! I didn’t have any other plans, but to go to Church for Christmas Day service. This is yet another first for me. Going to Church on Christmas day never occurred to me all these years. Service was great, I was so delighted to be in Church. I feel like all those years past are wasted years. I won’t waste time thinking of them though, they are long gone, and what I have is now. It’s now that this is happening and I want to bask in the joy of it all.

Went home after service, I thought I would sleep, so that the rest of the day would just pass by. Sleep wasn’t forthcoming in anyway, so I engaged in my pass time, tweeting, it’s become fun, I just love twitter. I then went on a calling spree, scrolling phone book and picking some people to call, I ran out of units, so I had to stop.

Thanks to my poor appetite, apparently zero appetite, I didn’t have any cooking plans.

What to do next? Can I ever just sit around doing nothing? The next thing I knew, I was doing some cleaning, washing the few dirty clothes and shoes that were there!

The sun was to be setting shortly, and Christmas day would be as good as over. I managed to have a few pictures of me taken to mark Christmas day late afternoon, before the day ended. Here’s me….
