A day late...

...but the wishes are just as hearty!  Happy Birthday to my father-in-law Marshall on his 89th year!  Here's to many more returns of the day!

A multitude of angels

| No Comments
There were shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flocks by night. When suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them...and they were sore afraid. But the angel said to them "Be not afraid for I bring you glad tidings of great joy for all people! For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior who is the Messiah, the Lord!!!" ~Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace, goodwill to men~

Merry Christmas to all!!

Thinking back

I can remember Christmas Eve as a child... that eternal-never-ending-eyes wide open-sleepfree-night.   And after finally nodding off for what seemed like the whole night, we would get up and go downstairs for a quick peek, only to be chased back to bed by my dad.  By that time it was all of 2 am, and the eternal night began all over!!  Finally daylight would arrive, and we were allowed to come downstairs and see what Santa had left for us.  One year it was a doll house, another year it was new pair of ice skates, and then there was the time both Judi and I got beautiful "Bride dolls".  Ah, I can even conjure up the smell of that new doll if I close my eyes.

Lovely, sweet memories of a kind of excitement never again matched by anything since....

There are no words, no words, not any...

Light a candle for these little lambs, and for all the victims of senseless and horrific violence. May God welcome them all into his loving arms and hold close all those left behind to grieve their passing
