Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from LynnRMitchell.com

Christmas 12 lanternThe reason for the season….

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.” Luke 2:8-20

The true meaning of Christmas … a time for the Christian world to pause and celebrate the birth of the son of God.

As 2017 comes to a close, it is a time to remember family and friends and those who have special meaning in our lives. While I’m still writing and posting photos at LynnRMitchell.com, my new responsibilities as editor-in-chief at Bearing Drift have kept me very busy. The entire past year was busy.

Here’s to a great 2018 and many more years observing, writing, and taking pictures of politics and more. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

End of an era: Ben Tribbett shuts down ‘Not Larry Sabato’ blog

Ben Tribbett 1By Lynn R. Mitchell

Tuesday night Democratic blogger and activist Ben Tribbett posted the following on his Facebook page:

Officially shut down “Not Larry Sabato” tonight. Been lots of fun, but I was writing it since April 2005 and I just can’t keep up with the needed updates anymore. If I have something to say that needs to be on a blog, there are many good options of where I can place it. Thanks to everyone who was a reader! I’ll still use this page to link to things if I write them elsewhere.
