Nativity scene in the us capitol
The Supreme Court has ruled that there cannot be a nativity scene in the U.S. Capitol this Christmas season.

This isn’t for any religious reason. They simply have not been able to find Three Wise Men in Washington, D.C.

A search for a virgin continues.

There will be no problem, however, finding enough Donkeys to fill the stable.

The Best Of Gifts
Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! —2 Corinthians 9:15

Having trouble selecting that perfect gift for someone? A friend shared with me a few suggestions:

The gift of listening. No interrupting, no planning your response. Just listening.

The gift of affection. Being generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, and pats on the back.

The gift of laughter. Sharing funny stories and jokes. Your gift will say, “I love to laugh with you.”

The gift of a written note. Expressing in a brief, handwritten note your appreciation or affection.

The gift of a compliment. Sincerely saying, “You look great today” or “You are special” can bring a smile.

But as we begin this special month of celebration, why not pass on the best gift you’ve ever received? Share the fact that “the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 6:23). Or share this verse from John 1:12, “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.” Remind others that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

The best gift of all is Jesus Christ. “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” (2 Cor. 9:15).

The greatest Gift that has ever been given
Is Jesus Christ who was sent down from heaven.
This Gift can be yours if you will believe;
Trust Him as Savior, and new life receive. —Hess

The best gift was found in a manger.


Bible in One Year: Ezekiel 40-41; 2 Peter 3

The sun is nice and bright with 48 degrees at the moment and I’m trying to decide what jacket to wear!

Have a great Tuesday, Amy!

God's Gift

One day when God felt generous,
He looked down at me and smiled,
“Since I feel so magnanimous,
I'd like to give you something, child.”

He asked me what I wanted,
I said, “Oh, really nothing more,
You've done so much already.”
He said, “That's what God is for.”

“You have been pretty good,” He said,
I know there's not much that you seek,
I will pick a little something,
Just to make your life complete.”

With great anticipation,
I looked forward to my gift,
I wondered what God had in mind,
That would give me such a lift.

“This gift,” God said, “You realize,
Bears some responsibility,
So, if you accept my present,
You must be willing to agree...

“To offer unconditionally,
A section or a part,
Of more than half of you,
The larger portion of your heart.”

“Okay, God,” I answered,
“Since in You, I always trust,
I'll meet your obligation,
In the manner that I must.”

To myself, I thought, wow, what a gift,
For so much of me, God's asked,
Now what could be so valuable,
That my share was more than half?

With both hands I sought my gift,
I still did not have a clue,
Then God put your hand in mine,
And said His gift to me was YOU!

DINNER IS ON ME

I will not be here tomorrow, off to Duluth MN for my 63rd Birthday, so I’m doing dinner for all my friends here before I split.

—————————— DINNER -———————————

-Steak, aged and slow baked, stuffed with shaved crab and Cashews.

-Ham, sliced and marinated in a rum and molasses sauce, baked until tender.

-Chicken breasts covered with Parmesan cheese and homemade Mayo, a sprinkle of bread crumbs and baked. Served with a light topping of Sauce béarnaise.

-Lightly seared Asparagus, flash steamed and topped with Lemon Butter.

-Garlic Potatoes, with a dusting of lightly grated Camembert cheese.

-A salad of finely sliced Romaine lettuce and date segments with a whipped Mayo and Lemon dressing.

-Dessert
——Chocolate cake layered with chocolate Mousse, crushed cashews and diced cherries and frosted with a soft toffee flavored frosting topped with caramel and semi-sweet chocolate slivers.

-Coffee, tea, and for the season Mulled Cider
-Milk (for us growing kids)

Later by the fire;
A fine single-malt and a first class cigar for those of a particular taste. For the rest, a delicate wine, a selection of pastries, and a good time by the fireside with good friends.

Thank you both - I'm glad you enjoyed the December opening. Susan Boyle's album was just released last week, and "Who I Was Born To Be" so far has remained my favorite track, but her voice is so pure and beautiful on everything she sings. Amy and I want to do at least one more of her songs this week. :)

Meg, your Christmas 'decorating' also helped get the December thread off to a wonderful start! I do hope the tremor doesn't last long - we miss your beautiful posts when you can't spend much time here.

Jaycee, another pretty and inviting good morning coffee post today. Think I will go brew a small pot right now - it's cold here!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOHNN!


When I read it was your Birthday,
I immediately went out
And bought the best ingredients,
And fixed especially for YOU
my magic Boeuf Wellington!

(You always feed us so well,
That on this very special occasion,
You deserve the very best!)

LOL! I love Maxine. Here's an email I got a couple of weeks ago (which some may have seen), but it's so cute and funny, I'm posting it anyway. :)

PRESIDENT IN 2012

Here we are, already discussing the future President of
the United States, beginning with the Year 2012.

For those of you who would like THE VERY BEST choice for
President, we have a solution: It is probably time we have
a woman as President. One choice is a very special lady
who has just about every answer to assist in helping us
to solve our problems.

PLEASE give this a thought when you have a moment...

MAXINE FOR PRESIDENT!


Very eloquently put...........don't you think?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • Maxine on "Driver Safety" "I can't use the cell phone in the car.. I have to keep my hands free for making gestures.".......

  • Maxine on "Lawn Care" "The key to a nice-looking lawn is a good mower. I recommend one who is muscular and shirtless."

  • Maxine on "The Perfect Man" "All I'm looking for is a guy who'll do what I want, when I want, for as long as I want, and then go away. Or wait nearby, like a Dust Buster, charged up and ready when needed."

  • Maxine on "Technology Revolution" "My idea of rebooting is kicking somebody in the butt twice."

  • Maxine on "Aging" "Take every birthday with a grain of salt. This works much better if the salt accompanies a Margarita."

  • "The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket."

  • "To err is human; to forgive, highly unlikely."

  • "Do you realize that in about forty years, we'll have millions of old ladies running around with tattoos and pierced navels?" (Now that's scary!)

  • "Money can't buy happiness--but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Porsche than a Kia."

  • "After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching somewhere...you may be dead.."


If you don't forward this to ten of your friends within
the next five minutes, nothing will happen..but you'll rob
them of a whole bunch of much-needed laughter.

Thanks, Amy. Let's do another Susan Boyle one! :) Just saw a tally of her sales in the U.S. of her debut album: the presales plus those purchased last week when the cd became available in the stores are the highest number of one week sales for 2009! (670,000)

What a cute little cowboy kitty!

MAXINE FOR PRESIDENT!

Now talk about a dynamic leader, and so clearly the best candidate with a uncluttered view of life.

Thank you, JC! When I showed the graphic to my best friend, and then read her the poem - we both went for the kleenex; and she thanked me for being her friend, too.

funny, but painfully true
A Harley biker is riding by the zoo in Washington , DC, when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.

The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.

Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back, letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.

A reporter has watched the whole event.

The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life.’

The Harley rider replies, ‘Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.’

The reporter says, ‘Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page. So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?’

The biker replies, ‘I’m a U.S. Marine and a Republican.’

The journalist leaves.

The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:

U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS
AFRICAN IMMIGRANT
AND STEALS HIS LUNCH

That pretty much sums up the media’s approach to the news these days.

SEMPER FI

Susan Boyle has a beautiful voice. I’m so happy that her album is doing so well.

We’re hoping to feature another of her songs later this week.
