Christmas Chuckles

Hope ya'll had a very merry Christmas. I enjoyed having some time off from the old wind-n-grind and getting to spend time with my family. My very numerous family. One of the best things about this is the laughter that we share and since "a merry heart doeth good like a medicine" (Proverbs 17:22a), I vote we share the laughter and joy of this season.

One short humorous moment came upon first entering my grandmother's house. You see Christmas Eve in my neck of the woods was quite wet and (for Texas) quite chilly. Which means - no standing outside chewing the fat, no sending the munchkins ranging from knee to shoulder height outdoors to run off that extra energy. No it means you're stuck within four sound-bouncing walls for the duration of the evening.

Thus, the humor of my grandmother's comment when I entered the food-loaded kitchen to the sounds of a couple handfuls of chattering children. "Who ordered the rain?"

Not me. :)

So when did you find time to laugh this weekend?

The Christmas Story - Digitalized

Howdy ya'll! We had our church Christmas banquet this month, and they shared a hysterically funny video that I will share with you now.

Merry Christmas and remember to share the true reason of Christmas with those around you (in whatever way you can :) )

With Christmas approaching and Thanksgiving past, it seems we are going and going and going and ... you get the picture. :) I know I'm not the Energizer Bunny, so there's got to be others out there who are as tired as me. When you get this way, here's a few tidbits to help.

T - Take time for you and God (Isaiah 40:31)
I  - In everything give thanks (I Thessalonians 5:18)
R - Remember, this too shall pass (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
E - Enjoy each day and (Psalm 118: 24)
D - Don't borrow trouble from tomorrow. (Matthew 6:34)

Do you have any other advice for others this Christmas season?

What's on Your List?

Okay, today I am succumbing to curiosity. I've really been pondering what ranks at the top of your favorite Christmas song list. I know, for me, it's very hard to narrow down the plethora of choices, but I'd say mine would have to be ...
  • Mary, Did You Know? by Mark Lowry
  • O Holy Night
  • Strange Way to Save the World by 4Him
What about you?
