Christmas, Photos, and Two Johns

Friends!  It is officially Christmas time!  It has been Christmas time in my apartment since the beginning of November, but it is FINALLY socially acceptable to celebrate with Christmas trees, twinkly lights, peppermint mochas, Christmas carols, and Bing Crosby.  Get out there and live it up, folks.  You have less than a month!

I am itching to get a new camera.  We've almost settled on one!  During our Thanksgiving celebrations, my family on both sides was super nice and let me try out THEIR cameras.  Here is one of my favorites!

From John 1 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  ...  All things were made through him...  In him was life, and the life was the light of men.  The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.  He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him.  He was not the light, but he came to bear witness about the light.

The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.  ...  The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.  And fro his fullness we have received grace upon grace

And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?"  He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, "I am not the Christ. ... I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, 'Make straight the way of the Lord,' as the prophet Isaiah said."
