The prophet Isaiah writes:

The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
a light has dawned.

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace
(9:2, 6).

Wishing you light, wisdom, power, love and peace.


I’m taking two weeks off to read, nap and celebrate Christ’s birth with family. In the meantime, please visit The Twelve Sites of Christmas and avoid the mall by Christmas shopping at jameswatkins.commissary.

I’ll be back January 1, 2009, with a brand new look and attitude! (Don’t worry. No piercings or tatoos over the holidays; just some changes based on your responses to my recent survey Thanks for your input!) See you New Years Day!
