my last post might have had you thinking we weren't fans of Christmas here...

we aren't a bunch of Scrooges... we have just toned our lives down on the consumerism part
of Christmas...

and want to remember the true reason...
it's all about Jesus!
His birth!
and we at Maple Valley off-grid Farm
want to declare that to the world!

If I could only get others to see it that way....I am often looked upon as a scrooge. Sometimes I feel it is the most DISRESPECTFUL time of the year in honoring our LORD that I could very well sleep through the whole thing! No matter how hard I try, there is always someone that tries to pressure me into things...the gift giving is crazy and the WORLD is SO commercial that it makes me sick!
OK I feel Im getting off on a rant! LOL!
Anyway....I feel ya Sister! And thank you for sharing the true meaning of Christmas with us! and one more thing...I really think women are taking Christams decorating to the extreme...you wouldnt beleive the things I hear them talking about, the money they are spending in the name of Jesus birthday? It is crazy!!
