Merry Christmas

December 16th, 2006 at 11:57 pm

For those of you who celebrate these holidays as the birth of Christ I would like to make the suggestion that during your shopping whether on a main street or a mall that you take the time to see the movie, "The Nativity Season." It will put into focus for you the reason for this sublime time of the year. It may be a bit difficult to bring together the birth of Christ with the crazy flurry of the season, but the movie will be well worth the ticket money. It takes a bit of getting into as the dialects become familiar and you identify the characters. At this point noisy kids in the back row of the theatre here were making a racket. But by the time Joseph and Mary were making their long journey to Bethlehem, the Wise Men were adding their characters to the production, and finally the birth as Joseph assists Mary you will be as still as churchmice. And the music is so lovely and sad too even the carol "Lully, Lullay" during the slaughter of the innocent children.
It is only a suggestion, but it has brought the season home to me so strongly.

    I haven't been here all week, but stopped in today and wanted to say hi!

    My husband (at 37) was diagnosed with diverticulitis. The doctor said he was the youngest person that he had ever diagnosed with it and it took them 7 months to figure out what it was. Luckily, a lot of it has been affected by diet and we eat very healthy now!

    I know that you are interested in Dave Ramsey (his plan absolutely does work). Try going on livinglikenooneelse.com. It's a free website based on his steps and you'll find great support and ideas there. Good luck!
