Happy Holidays

I have been so busy preparing for the holidays, that this month has almost past me by and I have neglected you all terribly. I have been taking more than I have been giving in blogland for the last 3 weeks, but please don't worry - I will return in the new year filled with lots of ideas and tastey treats to make 2009 a good year.

I leave for my holiday on Friday - all packed and wrapped, to spend a glorious 3 weeks with my family at our beach house in Stillbaai.

Christmas is a very special time of year in my family and we really enjoy being together - eating and eating and when that's done we usually do a little sleeping!

We certainly do remember the real reason for Christmas and that is to celebrate the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. The gift of life which He has given us, is remembered and we enjoy having this time together to celebrate it and be thankful for it.

I hope that I will have a chance to stop in and show you how my holiday is going, but I know how it usually goes and even with the best intentions I fail dismally every year.

With that I leave you with the words of Jude :

"To Him who is able to keep you from falling
and present you before His glorious presence
without fault and with great joy -
to the only God our Saviour
glory, majesty, power and authority,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
before all ages, now and for evermore!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
