Two-fer Tuesday: Merry Xmas by Deacon Blue

poinsettia-plantWe know, we know. It’s not even Christmas Eve yet. But neither me nor Miz Pink has much time for this week’s Two-fer Tuesday and, well, it’s close enough.

At this time of year we remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus (even though it isn’t really the day he was born; I know that), I tend to find myself in remembrance of a Bible passage that recalls his sacrifice for us, which took place in the spring, rather than the manger and the magi and all that.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. Gospel of John, chapter 3, verse 16

Sure, that may seem more appropriate for Easter time, but I always like to remember that God sent Jesus to us for a reason, and it wasn’t to inspire us to put presents under trees (though that’s nice, too).

Happy Holidays to all, whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus or something else entirely. God bless you all, even those of you who don’t believe in Him. 😉

(For my Cleansed By Fire fans…all 10 or 12 of you, 😛 I will be trying my damndest to post two more installments this week, ideally at least one, and perhaps both of them, on or before Christmas Day.)

Two-fer Tuesday: Merry Xmas by Miz Pink

pink_berrylipsI spit out my twofer Tuesday thing every week, and another post on most Saturdays, and maybe every once in a blue moon comment around here, but even though I’m not around as much as Deke, I want you to know I love and appreciate and pray for all of you. So a hearty Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and Joyous New Year and everything else to all of you.

If there’s any mistletoe around you, feel free to enjoy a virtual kiss on the cheek or forehead from me. Just don’t get anything extra in mind. And don’t tell Sir Pink I gave you a little peck. If you do, he’ll want real smootchy quid pro quo on that for each and every virtual one given out, and since Deke tells me there are over 100 hits a day to this blog now, that would be alot of extra work for me.




Deacon Blue is the blogging persona of editor and writer Jeffrey Bouley. The opinions of Jeff himself on this blog, and those expressed as Deacon Blue, in NO WAY should be construed as the opinions of anyone with whom he has worked, currently works, or will work with in the future. They are personal opinions and views, and are sometimes, frankly, expressed in more outrageous terms than I truly feel most days.
