For instance, the story of the animals speaking.
The goat asks 'Where' the sheep answers ' There'. Different animals have been given their part to play over the millennia and one can still find new ideas for the story today.
GOOD MORNING !
I sat down with my cards yesterday evening while watching a Christmas program on TV. This time of year I watch more TV than any other time of year. I love Christmas movies. Well the show I watched was actually a cartoon and it was all about the song ‘Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer Going Home From My House Christmas Eve’.
I don’t know if you’ve heard it or not but the radio station I listen to at work said it is America’s most disliked Christmas song. Who wants to think of Grandma getting run over by a reindeer? Well the cute cartoon told a story that was endearing and put the reindeer in the clear, so I’ll never feel bad about that song any more. I don’t know which came first , the movie or the song, but I did enjoy the movie.
Cards and shopping are now all done and Saturday is our family Christmas celebration so I’m very happy that now things will be a bit more relaxed.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
In that little stable so long ago
There was no dazzling lights.
There was nothing to distract one's thoughts
From that precious holy sight.
High above the brilliant star
Was shining down from heaven.
And in the stillness of that moment
God's wondrous gift was given.
Shepherds came from near and far,
Their hearts were filled with love.
And watching o'er the Holy Child
Were angels from above.
The three wisemen bearing gifts
At last on Him did gaze,
And as they looked in wonderment
Their lips were uttering praise.
So take a moment to recall
How this season did begin,
And make your heart a quiet stable
Where the Lord may enter in.
You see, somewhere deep down inside we all believe in something better than we now have or see, and most of us feel a lot better when we help someone. Whether the person is in need or not, this feeling is what I call the feeling of Christmas, and we all should strive to feel this way all year long.
TREAT ALL OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM TREAT YOU
