A blessed Christmas greeting from Lagalog.com


When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us." And they went with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they saw it they made known the saying which had been told them concerning this child; and all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. But Mary kept all these things, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them. - Luke 2:15-20

In a word, for many of us 2009 was eventful. There were storms, calamities, recession, job cuts, budget cuts. On a personal note, Lagalog had a career change, leaving his employment of eight years to pursue freelance photography and writing. It's far from easy but I'm thankful to God for keeping me afloat, still alive and dreaming. With the way things were for others, I should consider myself lucky.

This Christmas, let's continue to pray for and extend our hands to others. People who've lost their jobs. Those who've lost their homes and even their loved ones during typhoons Ondoy, Pepeng and Ramil. Let's be thankful for all the graces we've received and not forget that the season is not called Claus-mas but Christ-mas. It's not about bonuses or fancy gifts, newfangled gadgets or new acquisitions, nor of an old man riding on a sleigh or chestnuts roasting on the open fire. It's all about the birth of our Savior. So from Lagalog.com, I wish you, my readers, a meaningful Christmas. I pray and declare that 2010 would be a better, more blessings-filled year for us. Amen.
