...that the Christmas Holiday season is kind of lame for me. Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and all, but every year I end up feeling a little jipped. Check this out:
December 23rd: Our wedding anniversary
December 25th: Christmas
January 1st: New Years
January 11: My birthday
So four of the most celebrated days of my year all happen in about a two-week period. Which is no big deal and I normally wouldn't complain, but I have another semi-important date to celebrate this year. It's the five year anniversary of my baptism and conformation into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And guess when that falls...December 28th. Yep. Just another special day to me over-shadowed by the rest of the hubbub of the busy holiday season. So though I rarely complain about my anniversary or birthday being overlooked due to Christmas, I'm making a big deal out of this one.
So what, exactly, am I looking for in terms of celebration? I don't really know. But it's sort of a big deal to me. I was thinking maybe I'd buy myself a gift. I've been browsing paintings by Greg Olsen, Del Parson, Simon Dewey, Liz Lemon Swindle, and a few other ones that have caught my eye recently. Here are some of the ones I like:
"Lost No More" by Greg Olsen
"The Good Shepherd" by Simon Dewey
"Once Lost" by Del Parson
So what are some of your favorites I should consider???
