Just an update on my silly life

Hello my sweet friends,
Just thought I would drop you a few lines, here. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We had a nice one. Just wished that we had snow instead of the rain. But it was nice being with the family. Mom enjoyed us all being with her for two days of talking and cooking and eating. I maded candies and cookies for two weeks!! I don't want to see another piece of chocolate for 11 more months!! The kids enjoyed them all and took home sandwich bags filled with the goodies. I really enjoy baking for the holidays, the clean up is the pits tho. lol.
Well this Christmas was better than last years on my emotions, since the husband is gone. But I did still have a day of anger and depression and tears. But thats better, had only one day, not a week. So, I'm doing better. My son is too. He was so strong for me. Didn't want any presents, he knows how hard I work now to pay our bills and to keep this house. But I did get him a few things and he was so appreciative. He's growing up to be a great man. I love him so much, I don't know how I would manage this big house without him here with me. But I will have to learn too, he will be going to college next fall. Need to move into a smaller place, I know that. Well enough of all that.
I hope everyone has a wonderful, prosperious, Happy New Years!!
I love you all!!!

I have a list of people I know,

All logged in my computer.

And now at Christmas time,

I have gone to take a look.

And that is when I realize

That these names are a part,

Not of the computer

They're stored in,

But of my heart.

For each name stands

For someone who has

Crossed my path sometime,

And in that meeting

They've become the rhythm in each rhyme.

And while it sounds fantastic

For me to make this claim,

I feel that I'm composed of

Each remembered name.

And while you may not be

Aware of any special bond or link,

Just meeting you has

Changed my life,

A lot more than you think!

For once I have

Met somebody, the years cannot erase,

Of a pleasant word

or blog or e-mail,

or of seeing your friendly faces here.

So never think

My Christmas blog or e-mails

Are just a mere routine,

Of names upon an address

List, forgotten in between.

For when I do a

Christmas email that

is addressed to you, it's

Because you're on the list

Of people I'm indebted to.

And whether I have

Known you for many years or few,

In some way you

Have been a part

Of shaping things I do.

And now that Christmas

Has come, I realize anew,

The best gift life can offer

Is meeting people like you.

Thank you for caring to know me.

Merry Christmas!

Just recieved this, had to post

Christmas Letter from Jesus=====

This came in my email at the perfect time.

I recently got into a discussion online with

some ladies about Christmas and whatit means...

and stores and companies and how they do or do notcelebrate the season!

Boy, this really opened my eyes.

Dear Children,

It has come to my attention that many you are upset that folks are taking

My name out of the season. Maybe you've forgotten that I wasn't actually born

during this time of the year and that it was some of your predecessors who
decided to celebrate My birthday on what was actually a time of pagan festival.

Although I do appreciate being remembered anytime.

How I personally feel about this celebration can probably be most

easily understood by those of you who have been blessed

with children of your own.

I don't care what you call the day.

If you want to celebrate My birth, just


Now, having said that let Me go on.

If it bothers you that the town in which you live

doesn't allow a scene depicting Mybirth,

then just get rid of a couple of Santa's and snowmen and

put in a small Nativity scene on your own front lawn.

If all My followers did that there wouldn't be any need for such

a scene on the town square

because there would be many of themall around town.

Stop worrying about the fact that people

are calling the tree a holiday tree, instead of a Christmas tree.

It was I who madeall trees. You can remember Me anytime you see any tree.

Decorate a grape vine if you wish: I actually spoke of that one in a teaching,

explaining who I am in relation to you and what each of our tasks were.

If you have forgotten that one,
look up, John 15: 1 - 8.

If you want to give Me a present in remembrance of
My birth here is my wish list.

Choose something from it:

1. Instead of writing protest letters objecting to the way
My birthday is being celebrated,

write letters of love and hope to soldiers away from home.

They are terribly afraid and lonely this time of year.
I know, they tell Me all the time.

2. Visit someone in a nursing home. You don't have to knowthem personally.
They just need to know that someone cares about them.

3. Instead of writing George complaining about the wording on

the cards his staff sent out this year, why don't you write and tell him that you'll
be praying for him and his family this year.
Then follow up. It will be nice hearing from you again.

4. Instead of giving your children a lot of gifts you can't afford and they don't
need,spend time with them.
Tell them the story of My birth, and why I came to live with
you down here . Hold them in your arms and remind them that I love them.

5. Pick someone that has hurt you in the past and forgive him or her.

6. Did you know that someone in your town will attempt to take

their own life this season because they feel so alone and hopeless?

Since you don't know who that person is,
try giving everyone you meet a warm smile;

it could make the difference.

7. Instead of nit picking about what the retailer in your town calls the holiday,

be patient with the people who work there.

Give them a warm smile and a kind word.

Even if they aren't allowed to wish you a "Merry Christmas" that doesn't keep

you from wishing them one. Then stop shopping there on Sunday.

If the store didn't make so much money on that day they'd

close and let their employees spend the day at home with their families.

8. If you really want to make a difference,

support a missionary - especially one who takes My love and Good News to

those who have never heard My name.

9. Here's a good one. There are individuals and whole families in your town

who not only will have no "Christmas"tree,

but neither will they have any presents to give or receive.

If you don't know them, buy some food and a few gifts and
give them to the Salvation Army

or some other charity which believes in Me

and they will make the delivery for you.

10. Finally, if you want to make a statement about your belief in and

loyalty to Me,then behave like a Christian.

Don't do things in secret that you wouldn't do in My presence.

Let people know by your actions that you are one of mine.

Don't forget; I am God and can take care of Myself.

Just love Me and do what I have told you to do.

I'll take care of all the rest.

Check out the list above and get to work; time is short.

I'll help you, but the ball is now in your court .

And do have a most blessed Christmas

with all those whom you love and remember:



Songs Reflections

Greeting cards have all been sent

The Christmas rush is through

But I still have one wish to make

A special one for you
Merry Christmas darling

We're apart that's true

But I can dream and in my dreams

I'm Christmas-ing with you
Holidays are joyful

There's always something new

But every day's a holiday

When I'm near to you

The lights on my tree

I wish you could see

I wish it every day

Logs on the fire

Fill me with desire

To see you and to say
That I wish you Merry Christmas

Happy New Year, too

I've just one wish

On this Christmas Eve

I wish I were with you
Logs on the fire

Fill me with desire

To see you and to say

That I wish you Merry Christmas

Happy New Year, too

I've just one wish

On this Christmas Eve

I wish I were with you

I wish I were with you
(Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas Merry Christmas - Darling)

I just love this Christmas song!!!

I think I will be posting old Christmas tunes through out this

Christmas season.

Sometimes its words are not taken

truely for there meaning,

when the music is along.

So thought I would just post the words,

so they can be read and sink in.
