Where are you, Christmas?

Have ya'll ever heard the song by Faith Hill that goes..."Where are you, Christmas? Why can't I find you? Why have you gone away?" That's my theme song for this year...I have always loved Christmas, but due to many circumstances beyond my control, my spirit is low and I'm having a very hard time finding it. Today is the 14th...only 11 days till Christmas...and I've done 2 shopping, no cards and still no tree, and have only given a passing thought to Christmas dinner. Seems there is so much bad in the air these days, I just can't seem to shake the blues. So, with that in mind, I'll post pics of my 2 decorations, and go sit by the lake, and try to remember the true meaning of Christmas. These bad times shall pass, but the true meaning is always here, we sometimes have to look a little harder to find it. Merry Christmas everyone...I'll be back in 2009. Until then...peace on earth, and prayers for a better year to come. *elaine*

Hi Elaine....chear up! You really sound a whole lot like me.....Just not into Christmas this year. Maybe we have too much junk in our heads? I know I do. I just started blogging a few months ago....and I am already getting bored with that. Enjoy Florida....I'll be down later in Feb.

Hope you are enjoying the true meaning of Christmas. I just got my decorations up...Cheer up. Life is good. It just takes a little more work sometimes to understand it all. God Bless.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I too was very blue and just not feeling the spirit. This poem hit me when I needed it most. Hope you found some Christmas spirit.

See ya in 09.
