Antonio Villaraigosa was elected to a second term as our mayor here in LA. This is no surprise, but it is interesting he used the word for the day from the blog in his speech. He called LA residents, “souls.”
It is good to know alcalde Villaraisgosa is reading the blog!

In Genesis 1:24, the King James Bible speaks of God creating “cattle and creeping things.” The word for “cattle” is the same root as the word for “Behemoth,” from Job 40. This is a big animal or a huge creature. Poet and illustrator William Blake depicts it this way (there is that dragon again!). Now that is a creepy thing…

Our amazing daughter turned 20 today. Kristina brings light, hope, joy, and wisdom. The light of Christ revealed in a young woman. So much love for her mother and her father. Happy Birthday to my baby girl…

Yule log- No fireplaces allowed in new homes in LA. Lucky we have an old house with a fireplace where a yule log will be burning Christmas Eve. I’ll ride my bike to work for a couple of days to offset.
Have a blessed Christmas!

Every generation is to pass on the good news of Jesus to the next. This happens most effectively with parents passing the message of hope to their children by modeling a godly life.

Holly- Green thorny leaves, and bright red berries certainly bring to mind the crown of thorns and drops of blood. God uses nature to subtly point to Christ- if you are looking.

Fa la la la la, fa la la la- Who sings Deck the Halls correctly? This is the actual lyric in the original English and Welsh translation. What else do we sing wrong? Quiet Night?

Bethlehem- is the city where King David is from and is hardly memorable for any other reason. That is until the King of the Universe hails from here, as well. That changes things a bit.
