A Lesson From Santa !

[COLOR=seagreen]Late one Christmas Eve, I sank back, [/COLOR]
[COLOR=seagreen]tired but content, into my easy chair. The kids were in bed, the gifts were wrapped, the milk and cookies waited by the fireplace for Santa. .[/COLOR]

[COLOR=seagreen]As I sat back admiring the tree with its decorations, I couldn't help feeling that something important was missing. [/COLOR]

[COLOR=seagreen]It wasn't [/COLOR][COLOR=seagreen]long before the tiny, twinkling tree lights lulled me to sleep. I don't know how long I slept, but all of a sudden I knew that I wasn't alone. [/COLOR]

[COLOR=seagreen]I opened my eyes, and you can imagine my surprise when I saw Santa Claus himself standing next to my [/COLOR][COLOR=seagreen]Christ[/COLOR][COLOR=seagreen]mas tree. [/COLOR]

[COLOR=seagreen]He was dressed all in fur from his head to his foot just as the poem described but he was not the...

The Women Of Winter

[COLOR=seagreen]THE MOURNERS DIDN’T CAUSE HIM TO STOP. Nor did the large crowd, or even the body of the dead man on the stretcher. It was the woman—the look on her face and the redness in her eyes. He knew immediately what was happening. It was her son who was being carried out, her only son. And if anyone knows the pain that comes from losing your only son, God does…. (Luke 7:11-17)[/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=seagreen]II[/COLOR][/B]

[COLOR=seagreen]His plan was to catch a few winks while the boys went to town for food. And what better place to rest than a well at noon. No one comes for water at this hour. So he sat down, stretched his arms, and leaned against the wall of the well. But his nap was soon interrupted. He opened one eye just wide enough to see her trudging up the trail with a heavy jar on...

Unpleasant Venting

Posted 02-05-2011 at 07:31 PM by caninemom3

Generally I do not like to speak of someone who is not available to give their own opinion on matters which concens them but there comes a time when we all must vent. That is what I am doing here. Right or wrong, these thoughts and emotions MUST come out.

I do not like my life. I haven't in fact liked my life for 18 years. I am only going to make inferences as to why, not naming any specific person while I also keep in mind that I am responsible for some of the unplesantness I experience on a daily basis.

It seems to me that there is nobody to share little joys with for the most part, nobody to share closeness with daily (speaking mainly of emotional closeness), nobody to share hopes and dreams with. Nobody to spontaneously do things on a whim with. If I go out to a store with a "certain someone" It must ONLY be to that store. No place else.

In short there is nobody to make the struggles of life less. There are only worse and worse...

Jesus' Hand Will Touch You Too

[COLOR=seagreen]The old guy at the corner hasn’t seen him. The woman selling the figs hasn’t either. Jesus described him to the scribes at the gate and the kids in the courtyard. “He’s about this tall. Clothes are ragged. Belly length beard.”[/COLOR]

[COLOR=seagreen]No one has a clue.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=seagreen]For the better part of the day, Jesus has been searching up and down the Jerusalem streets. He didn’t stop for lunch. Hasn’t paused to rest. The only time his feet aren’t moving is when he is asking, “Pardon me, but have you seen the fellow who used to beg on the corner?”[/COLOR]

[COLOR=seagreen]Finally, a boy gives him a lead. Jesus takes a back street toward the temple and spots the man sitting on a stump between two donkeys. Christ approaches from behind and places a hand on his shoulder. “There you are!” I’ve been looking for you.” The fellow turns, and, for...
