Creative Pursuits Block Puzzle MugOh look, Chicken Thursday!

I am happy to announce that Cybersalt has opened up an online store. One goal is to provide links to products I will be doing "unboxing" videos about and also to offer a place to eventually get Cybersalt swag from. However, my eldest daughter who works for Shopify is managing the store and adding fun products too - like this Creative Pursuits Block Puzzle Mug you can order at:

Marriage and the New Year can be like a RodeoSunday greetings everyone!

Rev. James Snyder is facing the New Year like it's a rodeo - he also seems to face marriage like it is a rodeo too it seems. You can read more about that in "Back in the Saddle Again…and Again" at:

Also, a big thanks to Mary E. with another "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" example - this one being in Slovenian:
"Vesel božič, srečno novo leto"

Mary said I could add it to the list next year, but I decided to do it right away so I don't forget AND because I have to edit it because, as Rob M. and Jo B. pointed out, Walter Mclauren punked me with his version from Siam! Yes, I fell for it, lol, and maybe you can too. He said that the Siamese way to say "Happy New Year" was "Oh-wah ta-si ligu Siam." Just keep saying it over and over and you'll get it.

some flags of the worldOh look, the first Chicken Thursday of 2018 - Happy New Year!

Sunday's Cybersalt Digest included an item that featured 40 ways to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in different languages. Well, it turns out there were some missing. Thanks to everyone who contributed more:

You forgot my home language Afrikaans: It is a beautiful language spoken in the most southern point of africa. In afrikaans, the translation is : “Geseënde kersfees en voorspoedige nuwe jaar”! Regards “groete”

You missed out Europe’s oldest living language..... Welsh.... happy new year is Blwyddyn Newydd dda..... to pronounce the dd sound you put your tongue as if you were going to say THE, only it is a longer gentle blow..... then to pronounce the LL letter (as they are both letters in their own right!) you put your tongue again to say THE only this time instead of gently blowing forwards you blow sideways.... as if you have a certain type of lisp.

And my neglected online friend, Walter M., wrote:

You know I like to jump on the least little possible error, like the Aztec Sun Stone, so I thought I would mention that "Shanah Tova" is something I have only heard in connection with the Jewish new year which was a little while ago.  It might be the same, but I'll have to check it out with my Messianic pastor friend.  You also left out my favorite language, Siamese.  Oh-wah  ta-si ligu Siam.

I'll be making updates to the original item.

Body of Christ ConnectionOh look, Chicken Thursday!

As we approach the end of the year, a number of the persecuted Christians and refugees that Cybersalt is connected with find themselves in ongoing trials and hardships. As a forum for sharing news and prayer requests about/for these families, I have created a closed Facebook Group. If you are interested in joining here is the link to the group:

Merry Christmas 2017Sunday and Christmas Eve greetings everyone! On behalf of Grandma Cybersalt and myself, I would like to wish you a blessed and soul-filled Christmas.

This Christmas is a very different one for us featuring the breaking of many traditions, the making of some new ones, and probably some one-offs too. One of the biggest changes is that we have already celebrated our family get together with two of our three children (the third and her family not being able to be home at all). To accommodate work schedules, Christmases with their in-laws, and to give us the most time together, we had both our traditional Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas morning present opening "untraditionally" on the 23rd. 

The most zealous of shoppers would say that means we have 366 days to get ready for next Christmas. However, we see it as one more morning for some family time and farewells, and then a leisurely anticipation of a 10pm Christmas Eve communion service. Next comes an unrushed Christmas day to celebrate and remember what God has already done 2000 years earlier. For though we find ourselves in a place and stage of life with much already enjoyed this Christmas, the most important thing we have to revel in remains the life changing reality of Jesus's birth in Bethlehem to (as the song says) "set us free from Satan's power when we had gone astray."

Seasons of life, those inhabiting them with us, and the traditions born out of the combination of both will come and go, but God's gift of restored life with Him will remain as unchanged as the gift He gave that first Christmas.

God bless you all and enjoy the rest of today's mailing
