Christmas Blessing Meme
Rob over at Catholic Scripture Study has blessed me! Many thanks to him for this! I am obviously moving up in the blogging world :-)
In turn I am to bless three bloggers, so here they are:
One: Harry Gunkel over at the recently-birthed blog Mission to Jerusalem. Thank you Harry for reminding me of the conflict that we all face when we arrive in the Middle East, and quite particularly of the intractable tension of the Holy Land. Thank you for your honesty and candor.
Two: Aysha Alkusayer of In the Making! Shukran jazilan ya Aysha! I doubt that whoever started this thought it would spread to Muslim bloggers and bloggeraat (that's the Arabic feminine plural for 'blogger' :-) Thank you Aysha for being full of life (which is what your name means after all), for seeking wisdom, and sharing your insights and thoughts with us all. May our Creator guide us both to wisdom and everlasting life as we contemplate both feasts: ours of the birth of Jesus and yours of Eid al Adha--the feast of the sacrifice.
Three: Taylor Marshall of Canterbury Tales. Taylor, you provide a wealth of historical and ecclesiastical knowledge. I love it. Keep it coming! (I am still waiting for your explanation RE when bishops started wearing purple and why...)
If Harry, Aysha, and Taylow want to continue passing on this blessing all they need to do is:
a) bless 3 blog buddies each
b) Include the ‘God Bless you’ image in their post
c) Explain briefly why they are blessing the people they are blessing
d) pray/include in the post the prayer for the recipients of the blessing.
e)The recipient/sender of a blessing should type in the com box of Deb’s original post that a blessing has been sent to them so we can keep track of how many blessings are being given. For easy reference a link to her post will make it into Deb’s sidebar.
