A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

Merry Christmas--Everyday


It's Christmas, Lord
It's YOUR birthday
What can I give YOU--
YOU have who have given
So much to me?
I search and search
Through my talents
My possessions
My friendships
My loves
But with all my searching
I find nothing new.
Strangely--
Whatever I could offer
Is always that
Which YOU have first
Given me.
And now in the soft silence
I hear YOU say
What I want from you--
Is you.
-------Ruth Harms Calkin
Merry Christmas dear ones.
I am praying for you out there.
I am praying for this dear lady I met
whilst sitting on the bench at the mall
Tuesday night who proclaimed:
"I hate Christmas"
I pray the little I got to share gave her hope.
~*~*~*~*~
You know it is only ONE day....where my Bible says:
Psalms 118:24
This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
~*~*~*~*~*~
I do believe that to mean EVERYDAY....
Thank you LORD for your birth, death, and Ressurection.
I think that is the most EVERYDAY gift there could be.
LOVE and HUGS to YOU ALL.....
Jesus is the Reason I CHOOSE to celebrate the Season !!!
