WOW 2017

dsc_0198

     I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I tell you 2016 flew by so fast I was surprised it was that time again.  But we had a wonderful time.  My family was together and that always makes me happy.  Both of my sons and daughters-in-law are Christians and they are teaching my six-year-old grandson to serve God.  I know we can’t make that decision for him but at least we can give him the foundation.

     With that said I must talk about one of my pet peeves.  I hate it when I hear someone say ‘Christmas is all about the kids.’  No it isn’t!  Christmas is about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!  We are celebrating His birth.  Yes, I get the gift giving concept because God gave us His Only Son as a gift that we can accept and have eternal life.  I guess you could say Jesus was the First Christmas Gift.  And listen, I love giving at Christmas and I love getting gifts also but please let’s remember the real reason for the celebration.

     Don’t get me wrong I love children…well most of them anyway.  I have been around a few I found hard to tolerate but that is not the child’s fault.  There are no bad children just terrible parents who fail to teach what they should.  But that’s a subject for another post.

     Thank you for stopping by and come back whenever you want; you are always welcome.  And please when you hear someone say ‘Christmas is all about the kids’ explain to them what Christmas is really about.

God bless.

EARLY MORNING MIST

HOME

Every thing has a different conception of home.

     To a honey bee this hive was home.  A storm came through our yard a few weeks back and blew a huge limb off one of our trees.  I knew bees did live there for almost a year but for some reason they left.  However, I was both surprised and grateful to see this hive.  Surprised because before this I had never seen inside a beehive in nature.  And grateful that the bees had decided to travel on because I worried they might attack my six-year-old grandson

For a few days one summer this cabin in North Carolina was our home.  It looks rustic but it had all the real comforts of home.

So…while our homes differ in style and how we conceive them all creatures have something they call home.
