Time for Christmas shopping

I have a love/hate relationship with Christmas shopping.
On the love side:

A. I get to think of creative gifts that the recipients will never guess
B. I get to give people stuff
C. I get to mindlessly wonder around stores and usually wind-up getting myself a Christmas present (don't judge me... you've done it to!!!)

On the dislike side:

A. I become trapped in a mall surrounded by thousands of people for hours on end with nothing but my instincts to survive the lights, smells and prices
B. Having to find interesting gifts by the 25th
C. Hiding the gifts from the recipients

I like to be done my shopping by December 1st, ya I know, unrealistic and early. The method behind the madness is simply this -- the sooner I get the shopping done, the sooner I can start to focus on the real reason for the season.
It also has something to do with the year I didn't start Christmas Shopping until the 20th of December... that was stressful.

Bieber Fever

I found this on YouTube a feww months ago and it's just to good not to share. (If the last video made you cry... this should help).

I'm not sure if he is really reading out of the book, but it's funny all the same.

Poetry in Motion

Have you seen this? 700,00 Lite Brite pegs. 50 hours of work. One amazing music video.

What does this video mean to you?
One of the lyrics of this song is "You have overcome this heart that is overcome."
To me this video represents the times in life when we are overcome. A death in the family, a lay-off... whatever. Even though it may seem impossible to "bounce back" from these scenarios, God is mighty enough to "over come when we are overcome."
That encouraged me.
How about you?

If you have ever attempted to think of something interesting to say on your first ever blog post, you know it isn't easy. Most people say things like, "Hey internet welcome to my blog" or "this is my first post" probably my favorite has been [on Twitter] "Hey Twitter, this is amazing, I love Twitter!!!" and then... they never post anything else! I really don't like posts like this. I find them corny.
So I'll cut to the chase... Welcome to my Blog, Twitter is great.
