The Christmas We Deserve

Thing is, I’m a Grinch when it comes to Christmas. At times the demand that everyone be at his or her best, no matter what storms lurked beneath made this a lonly time. Later, as a student of theology, examinations took place just after new years. So after a few days of holymaking, reading and some stress. Still later as a pastor, the stress of not botching the sermon.

I love the Christmas message though. Stength in the guise of a babe. Purposeness in the wandering of the wise. Peace within times of trouble. Grace where none should be found.

This year I found grace where I didn’t expect any, hope where I thought none was to be.  I find the Magnificat of Bach nourishing, the Messiah by Händel, Poulenc’s Gloria and odd pieces of Mozart, Brahms and others absolutely so.

Once in awhile I stuble accross something that really hits it for me, like Greg Palmers video, on top of this blog. His words resonate in my belief in a miracle of God, of life, of us, that we have it in us to change the most hopeless into something of great beauty – sometimes inspite of ourselves:

I Believe In Father Christmas
Lyrics by Emerson, Lake and Palmer
They said there’ll be snow at christmas
They said there’ll be peace on earth
But instead it just kept on raining
A veil of tears for the virgin’s birth
I remember one christmas morning
A winters light and a distant choir
And the peal of a bell and that christmas tree smell
And their eyes full of tinsel and fire
They sold me a dream of christmas
They sold me a silent night
And they told me a fairy story
’till I believed in the israelite
And I believed in father christmas
And I looked at the sky with excited eyes
’till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
And I saw him and through his disguise
I wish you a hopeful christmas
I wish you a brave new year
All anguish pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear
They said there’ll be snow at christmas
They said there’ll be peace on earth
Hallelujah noel be it heaven or hell
The christmas you get you deserve

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
