I just wanted to post one of Tim's songs here with a suggestion to ponder.
During this season of joy, excitement, and unusually busy-ness, consider those who might be left in the corner alone, neglected, at a time when the joy should be sufficient for all. The elderly, sick, and disabled want the joy as much as we do, and often we are the ones that need to take action to step forward and share it with them.
So Merry Christmas, and please take time to help it be merry for everyone!
(Hopefully the music player thing shows up and works. It does when you look at this post through google reader, but doesn't show on my blog straight up. If you don't see the player, listen to the song here: In the Corner All Alone, by Tim Y Jones )
