EAGLE FREEDOM LINKS
Its been a kind of busy Christmas for me with baking, making Christmas dinner, cleaning the home and in addition while thankfully I am feeling much better since my surgery and getting over my infection I still get tired pretty easily so I wasn't able to visit everyone's blogs who I wanted to wish a Merry Christmas right around Christmastime so I want to wish all of my fellow bloggers a (belated) Merry Christmas.
Here is a Christmas message from Fr. Dave Dwyer of Busted Halo:
Love was born on the very first Christmas into a messy world. God’s son was born in a manger -- an animal’s feeding trough. He was born in the chaos of a census -- people traveling around the countryside to their hometowns to be counted. He was born, and King Herod ordered the killing of newborn babies to protect his throne. A messy world indeed.
Today’s world is messy, too. But this year -- every year -- God’s love is born. Jesus bursts into our hearts and lives despite the mess, despite the chaos, despite fear and danger.
This Christmas, I hope you’ll experience the love of Christ and the assurance that God is with us -- as a baby in a manger, as friends and family gathered to share the holidays, as fellow travelers on our own personal spiritual journeys.
I have to say Thank God for the end of 2012. This year was really tough for me. I had to make one of the hardest decisions of my life because of my problems with endometriosis knowing that would mean the end of my fertility and thus the end of my being able to give birth to a child. As hard as the decision was God was telling me that I had put up with enough pain over the years from endo that I needed to have the hysterectomy so I could be pain-free and have a much better quality of life. Then, I waited for a pretty long time for my surgery that it seemed surreal to me after it actually had happened, but I have the scars to prove it happened. I am feeling so, so much better now. Whether its because of no hormones or I'm still recovering form surgery a bit I still end up getting tired pretty easily. I am just hoping next year will be a much better year for me. I am very optimistic that it will.
We fought the good fight for the heart and soul of America and unfortunately we lost the battle with the re-election of President Obama. People chose "free stuff" over liberty. Citizens are okay with the government dictating to them what they can and can' t eat or can or can't do as long as they get their handouts. People chose revenge, divisiveness and class warfare - class envy - over love of country and the preservation of what our Founding Fathers built. In 2013 we will keep fighting the good fight, find different ways to reach out to our fellow citizens to teach them the history of America and that ultimately conservatism/libertarianism is good for the individual, for groups and for our nation.
I want to wish everyone a prosperous, healthy and Happy New Year!
