As We Approach Christmas

Posted 11-25-2010 at 06:47 PM by caninemom3
Tags god, mary

Tonight is Thanksgiving. I cannot even begin to count all the blessings I have in my life. I think of all the people here in our country and other countries who have nothing. I mean absolutely nothing. And here I am. I never want for food or warmth or any of the creature comforts that every human being and yes even "animals" should have a right to. It is not because of anything I did or do that I have all these blessings. I believe they are all a gift from God, our Father.

Now that we are approaching Christmas I think about Mary and Joseph and the way they found their way into history.

What was it like for them to become the caretakers on Earth of the Messiah ?? Did they see him as the Messiah ?? or just their baby ?? I wonder....

I used to think of them as I would see them in paintings or depicted in the movies of my youth, always holy and always devout. Never doubting or getting angry. In short I did not see them as human, which...

Perplexed

I must admit it. I am perplexed about certain decisions in my life. The main decision concerns my job. I feel blessed to have a job yet the company I work for has not been the most caring company I must say.

I guess I can't complain too much because I do work at home after all. However, I think with any job a part of the compensation should be respect and a sense that your employer values you and your services.

I am a medical transcriptionist and have been a transcriptionist for 17 years. In essence I listen to doctors dictate and I type what they say about patients. It is neither as hard nor as easy as it sounds. It just takes practice and I find though I have been doing it a long time I never get to the point where it is not challenging.

The company I work for is in Santa Monica, California. The problem I am having is in regard to an incident which happened last Sunday, November 14, 2010.

When I logged in at 6:30 EST a.m. (which...

Do You See Him ?

Posted 11-21-2010 at 01:23 PM by caninemom3

[B]Do You See Him?[/B]
[B][I]by Max Lucado[/I][/B]

[B]IT’S CHRISTMAS NIGHT. THE HOUSE IS QUIET. [/B]

[B]Even the crackle is gone from the fireplace. The last of the carolers appeared on the ten o’clock news. The last of the apple pie was eaten by my brother-in-law. And the last of the Christmas albums have been stored away having dutifully performed their annual rendition of chestnuts, white Christmases, and red-nosed reindeers.[/B]

[B]It’s Christmas night.[/B]

[B]The midnight hour has chimed and I should be asleep, but I’m awake. I’m kept awake by one stunning thought. [/B]

[B]The world was different this week. It was temporarily transformed.[/B]

[B]The magical dust of Christmas glittered on the cheeks of humanity ever so briefly, reminding us of what is worth having and what we were intended to be. [/B]

[B]We forgot our compulsion with winning, wooing, and warring. We put away our...

1[B][COLOR=seagreen] CORRINTHIANS 13 CHRISTMAS VERSION[/COLOR][/B]

[B][COLOR=seagreen]If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love to my family, I'm just another decorator.[/COLOR][/B]

[B][COLOR=seagreen]If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies, preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime, but do not show love to my family, I'm just another cook.[/COLOR][/B]

[B][COLOR=seagreen]If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing home, and give all that I have to charity, but do not show love to my family, it profits me nothing.[/COLOR][/B]

[B][COLOR=seagreen]If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes, attend a myriad of holiday parties and sing in the choir's cantata, but do not focus on Christ, I have missed the point.[/COLOR][/B]

[COLOR=seagreen][B]Today we found out that DJ, my stepson, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease stage III and who finished chemo is IN COMPLETE REMISSION !! Along with my MMC family who have supported me, laughed with me and I am sure cried with me, I offer this Psalm of King David as well as offering it to Our Father. The words are not mine but I could not have expressed what I am feeling right now in a more eloquent and humble fashion and to my MMC family, MERRY CHRISTmas !! Though I am very poor at this time in my life, I truly give each and every one of you my heart and friendship xo [/B][/COLOR]
