Christmas Hiatus From Blogging

Christmas is almost here. I'm sure everyone has completed their shopping, mailed their Christmas cards, bought the groceries for the family meal, decked the halls, and in general prepared for the holiday. Then again, perhaps some of us haven't.

I've been blessed with the promise of yet another published novel, but I'm fast approaching the deadline for its completion.

I've been greatly honored by the American Christian Fiction Writers by being chosen as the Vice-President Elect, taking office in January. That means that in December I'm following the activities of the Board while working with the current VP, Becky Yauger, and learning the position.

For these and several other reasons, this blog will be on hiatus for the next couple of weeks, with the exception of signing back on to make important announcements. And don't be surprised if that happens.

Meanwhile, may your Christmas be Christ-centered and your new year filled with all the blessings He has already prepared for you. Thanks for following my Random Jottings.

Merry Christmas, Richard!

Yes, I've accomplished all those things on your list, not because I'm usually this well organized a week before Christmas, but because one of our family members is scheduled for surgery this week and I wanted/needed to be free to deal with that. I'll be taking a break from blogging, too, letting a few pre-scheduled items post themselves, but otherwise saving my usual online time for whatever writing and reading I'm able to squeeze in.

Wishing you a blessed Christmas with time to rejoice and reflect.

Merry Christmas, Richard. I hope we do see a post from you in the next two weeks because that would mean you received some good news.
