Well, we’ve made the jump over to our blog website and we still have a few kinks to work out.

Please bare with us!

It is no secret that the stretch of November – December is my favorite time of year.

For me, it is both a time of reflection and excitement looking ahead at all of the future opportunities to care for orphans.

We have entered the season of giving.

Personally, I do my best to resist all of the hoopla surrounding “Black Friday” and “Happy ‘oops, I’m not allowed to say the name of that holiday” as the holiday sales begin in October.  Nope.  Not buying into it.

I don’t even feel that pressure.

I’m happy to tell everyone Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays.  I don’t care.

I know the real reason for all of it.  It’s Jesus.

That baby changed everything 2,000 years ago.  And, He still is today.

For that, I am grateful and hopeful.

And, it is a great time to remember that we are blessed to be a blessing.

If you get a chance, check out the two events below.

We would appreciate your help getting the word out about Patch Our Planet so that we can end the year strong!  We have so much planned for 2013 (see previous posts).  We would love to have your support.
