Lost Christmas

Lost Christmas

Why wait till Christmas time again is here?

Why spend those precious hours in hectic ways

Doing the things that you could do all year

And let the noise of whirl of festival days

Drown out the angel's song? Why not take time

To lift the eyes to candles in the sky;

To walk some silent night, while carols chime

And hear the hush of wings brush softly by?

Take time to mediate: to catch the spell

Of childish trust, that simple faith you knew

When love was everywhere, and all was well...

The gift you lost may now come back to you.

Seek not for Christmas in the busy mart

But cradled somewhere in a trusting heart.

Rachel Van Crème

  5. Urgent Prayer For Eddie (Love Bug)
    I am typing this for Denise of Shortybears Place she is on the phone with me now

    Eddie has had a stroke and is in hospital under observation. They were unable to get the stroke medication in time. So far they have done a CAT scan and a MRI and other test are being awaiting . His leg is effected. He is able to speak. This is written at 9:30 p.m. TN time

    He is in Memorial Hospital Chattanooga TN. She is alone so if any friends are able please consider coming to her side. He is being moved to room momentarily.

    This is written by Donetta of A Life Uncommon and she can be reached through me.

  6. I just read your lipstick story - too funny! Your hubby was good.

    I put some on in the morning, it wears off very soon, and I forget to put any more on.
