The Ghost of Christmas Future - A Fearful Blog

Posted 12-19-2010 at 12:43 PM by caninemom3
Tags death, fear

It is so hard to believe that Saturday is Christmas Day. Time not only goes fast these days. For me, it goes with warp speed.

The Christmas Eve glow that I feel each year is becoming more and more prominent each day we move closer now. I may be a sap but I TRULY wish for peace on Earth and good will to all men, though I know this is probably something all of us want.

Our tree is beautiful as ever. The mantel is decorated with garland and tons of lights and on the mantel my Santa Claus figures which I have collected through the years even from when David, my first husband was here.

The nativity scenes are in their full glory welcoming the newborn Jesus to the world replete with angels, shepherds, The Holy Family of course, and bushels of animals !!! As one member of MMC put it (Thank you Trackrebel !!), my nativity scenes are like a combination Noah's Ark and nativity scene. There are dogs,cats, ducks, geese, polar bears, lots and lots of polar...

Season's Meetings

Posted 12-17-2010 at 06:41 AM by caninemom3
Tags christmas

Each year we ring in the holiday season by attending dozens of holiday meetings. This Christmas committee, that planning event. Then we still have to make the rounds to every store in the metro-plex. 'Tis the season for weeks of ulcer inducing meetings and shopping, then wrapping for about 72 straight hours. Christmas morning I find myself sitting around the tree with a glazed look and half a roll of tape stuck in my hair.

I stack three stories of gifts in front of each child. Within ten minutes we're up to our eyeballs in wrapping paper. I have five children. That's five three-story gift stacks and about 1200 yards of wrapping paper. Last year it took us three days to find the cat.

I was scanning for Christmas sales when I ran across an Internet ad: "100 FREE HOURS!" That's it! That's what I want for Christmas! Not the Internet service--just the hours. My holiday calendar could make grown men weep.

Even if we can't have a chestnut or...

The Light of The World

Posted 12-15-2010 at 09:35 PM by caninemom3

Long Before There Was A Cross,
One Tiny Heart
Beat With The Purest Love
The World Would Ever Know.

And Two Faithful People
Carried That Love To Bethlehem
So It Might Be Born
In Every Heart One Day.

When The World Had Forgotten
The ONE Who Created Every Man,
Three Kings Remembered And Came
To Kneel Before
The Author Of Their Lives.

And Seekers Everywhere
Set Out To Find HIM,
Drawn By The Radiant Light
Of His Love.

Long Before We Knew His Name,
He Cherished EVERY ONE Of us --
Before His Tiny Lips Spoke A Word,
He Knew Us By Heart.

And This Time Called Christmas
Is Our Chance To Give Him
The Greatest Gift We Could Offer In Return-
The Gift Of Ourselves.

Wishing You The Joy
Of Living In His Love
At Christmas And Always.

The Four Candles

[B]The Four Candles burned slowly. Their Ambiance was so soft you could hear them speak...[/B]

[B]The first candle said, "I Am Peace, but these days, nobody wants to keep me lit."[/B]

[B]Then Peace's flame slowly diminishes and goes out completely.[/B]

[B]The second candle says, "I Am Faith, but these days, I am no longer indispensable."[/B]

[B]Then Faith's flame slowly diminishes and goes out completely.[/B]

[B]Sadly the third candle spoke, "I Am Love and I haven't the strength to stay lit any longer." "People put me aside and don't understand my importance. They even forget to love those who are nearest to them."[/B]

[B]And waiting no longer, Love goes out completely.[/B]

[B]Suddenly...[/B]

[B]A child enters the room and sees the three candles no longer burning.[/B]

[B]The child begins to cry, "Why are you not burning?...

Blessings

Posted 12-11-2010 at 09:22 PM by caninemom3

A newly arrived soul in Heaven was met by St. Peter. The saint toured the soul around Heaven. Both of them walked side by side inside a large workroom filled with angels.

St. Peter stopped in front of the first section and said, "This is the Receiving Section. Here, all the petitions to God said in prayer are received". The soul looked at the section, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets from all the people of the world.

They walked again until they reached the 2nd section, and St. Peter told the soul, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are packed and delivered to the persons who asked for them down on earth."

The soul saw how busy it was. There were so many angels working in that room, since so many blessing were being packed and delivered to Earth.

Finally at the farthest corner of the...
