The Reason for the Season

Today is CHRISTmas day! Remember why we celebrate today, because Christ was born.

Beautiful photo from Google
"Mary, Mary, hush, see the Child. 
 Joseph, Joseph, look, see how mild! 
This is Jesus; this is our King. 
This is our Savior; his praises we sing."

Love ~ S. F.

p. s. Please take a moment to listen to this version of "Hark! The Herald Angles Sing" preformed by the Gothard Sisters--your time won't be wasted!

If I could travel...

Photo from Pinterest
...I would take the road to the land where dreams come true.
where the roads go ever on and on.
 where we all can be what we want to be.
  where we don't have to be grown up to do big things.
   where there is love for everyone.
    where we're all brave in our way.
     where we can be ourselves.
      where the people from books are our friends.
        where everyone is happy. 
Take me to that land.

Well, I love Green, Blue and Orange.

8. Are you a Vegetarian?

9.  Are you a girly-girl?
I think I'm more of a Tom-boy, I'm sure you must understand.
