Missing The Christmas Season

Posted 05-09-2012 at 06:48 PM by Lynn68 (Everything Christmas)

There are 240 days left until Christmas and I've been missing that holiday feeling so much lately. I've been drinking a tea called Sleigh Ride, and listening to Christmas music to keep that feeling at all times, even in May. I know summer hasn't even started yet but I can't wait for late fall to start my Christmas shopping. I miss my Christmas tree and all of the decorations I put up through out my house. Oh that feeling! It's like magic...it's pure happiness...it's spiritual...it's family and friend time...it's baking sugar cookies and the smell of turkey. I watched Family Guy tonight and it was one I had never seen, it was a two part Christmas episode and while watching it I realized I had a smile on my face. Not because of the show, but because it was so wonderful to be watching a Christmas cartoon already! Perhaps this year snow will fall on Christmas eve or maybe on Christmas day. My heart is so full of the spirit of Santa, lights, wreaths, Jingle bells and everything else so wonderfully...

Take Good Care of My Baby

There are many changes in life happy and sad. Despite all the changes through the years the one constant I always had was my belief and faith in God. Until now. It is hard for me to believe that it was just Good Friday when I wrote an entry to Jesus in my blog here on MMC. Here I am today with a completly changed perception of everything.

I have drifted from faith and believing right into agnosticism, that is I simply do not know. I am not knocking anyone else who is firm in their faith, I am not trying to promote atheism or even to proselytize being an agnostic. For me the only thing that half way works right now is to say I don't know if any of it is true. I don't know if there is God or Christ or anything.

From my perception I do know that for the most part (for who knows how long) when I have prayed I have felt nothing but emptiness echoing my words. No presence hearing me, no love coming back. I know people can think God is supposed to answer in a certain...

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like...

Posted 04-30-2012 at 08:46 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Okay, okay, here we are on the precipice of May, and just like every year I am starting to get the first real inkling of Christmas. It's hard to say, and understand since I am on a Christmas website daily that it's my first real thoughts of Christmas sneak up on me in May, but for some reason, years before I joined here it was always the month I started to turn my focus on the approaching holiday season. It may be just the first rough drafts of Christmas lists, or the first real thoughts on how I will decorate. I just know Christmas is coming, and my first bit of excitement is already here.

Christmas Makes the House a Home

Posted 04-19-2012 at 12:54 AM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

We're moving.

After 13 years in the same place we're officially in the hunt for a new residence.

We came here when my sixth child, Madelyn, was just a week old. Our seventh, Emma, was born here and has known no other home.

If these walls could speak they would have stories to tell: like the Christmas we got Sam, our now ten year old border colllie. I had to bring him to my parents house on Christmas Eve morning for safe keeping and then I had to stay up with his whiny little puppy butt half the night to keep the kids from discovering him too early.

He's still as big a baby as ever.

And he has never known another home.

But things have changed for us and we're in need of relocating. It will be a local move and it introduces us to a new stage in our lives. Three of my adult children, due to their uncoordinated young adult activities, are all leaving the nest at one time. A mass migration.

That...

A Love Story

Posted 04-05-2012 at 09:13 PM by caninemom3

There was a time when I didn't know about you but you still knew about me. You were there when I was born, even before. You watched me as I grew from a baby into a toddler then a child and on into adulthood. You were there the day my dear mother, Susy, told me about you and how wondrous your love is when I was but a baby. Very early on I felt a very deep connection to you, I felt your presence and your love. I felt I was special to someone besides Susy at last. When I spoke with you I knew you were really listening and that what I had to say really mattered to you. I couldn't believe how much I loved you and more importantly how much you loved me.

Throughout our relationship I have felt your sadness and anger at the things people sometimes do and I have felt your happiness when people are kind and giving and compassionate. I really do not think there was a time when I did not know you or at least my soul.

You have always been there with me. You were with me...
