Babies Cry More

Babies Cry More

"How's it going Mr. Peterson?"

"It's a dog eat dog world Woody,
and I'm wearing Milk Bone underwear."

That's a greeting from Norm on the TV show Cheers.

All of us have one of those days.
Some of us have one of those seasons.
Some even have one of those lives.

It feels like the world is chewing on us.

It isn't, it just feels that way.

I have long realized that life isn't really what it is;
it's what we think it is based on relative things and our
knowledge level.

If you have traveled extensively, you know that in many parts of
the world just clean drinking water is a rarity.

We flush with clean drinking water.

So many of us have so much when you compare it. Those of you
who are reading this have access to the Internet, email and a

You can see, and you are not reading this from a hospital.

We have so much, yet there is an innate tendency to complain.
I tried to think of the easiest point in our lives to see if we
complained then.

Babies have perhaps the easiest life around.
Babies don't have to go to the toilet because mama changes their
diapers. Mama breast feeds them or gives them a bottle, rocks
them to sleep, and lets them sleep as much as they want.

Babies go to bed when they want.
Babies wake up when they want.

Babies don't have to work.
Babies don't have to deal with bills or bosses.
Babies don't worry if their thighs have gotten too fat or if
their hair is receding.

It's as easy as it gets.

With all of that,
babies cry more.

Babies cry more, with all of that.

Maybe it's not circumstances, but the closer we are to babies
(regardless of circumstances) the more we cry and complain.

I shall leave you with that thought.

Babies cry more.

With all of that.

The Season of Advent

The Season of Advent
Anticipation and Hope

The Advent Wreath~

Next Sunday is 1st. Day of Advent~

The Meaning of "Advent"
The word Advent means "coming" or "arrival." The focus of the entire season is the celebration of the birth of Jesus the Christ in his First Advent, and the anticipation of the return of Christ the King in his Second Advent. Thus, Advent is far more than simply marking a 2,000 year old event in history. It is celebrating a truth about God, the revelation of God in Christ whereby all of creation might be reconciled to God. That is a process in which we now participate, and the consummation of which we anticipate. Scripture reading for Advent will reflect this emphasis on the Second Advent, including themes of accountability for faithfulness at His coming, judgment on sin, and the hope of eternal life.

In this double focus on past and future, Advent also symbolizes the spiritual journey of individuals and a congregation, as they affirm that Christ has come, that He is present in the world today, and that He will come again in power. That acknowledgment provides a basis for Kingdom ethics, for holy living arising from a profound sense that we live "between the times" and are called to be faithful stewards of what is entrusted to us as God’s people. So, as the church celebrates God’s inbreaking into history in the Incarnation, and anticipates a future consummation to that history for which "all creation is groaning awaiting its redemption," it also confesses its own responsibility as a people commissioned to "love the Lord your God with all your heart" and to "love your neighbor as yourself."

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 kjv.
This is the first BIBLE verse that I learned as a child.

Lots of Love, Deanie

My Online Friends

My Online Friends: "~My Online Friends~

Maybe you don't look me right in the eye
Maybe you can't ever wipe my tears when I cry
Maybe we can't share some tea and honey so sweet
Or walk together down a path, or up the street

But, we can still be good friends, because you see
We met on the internet, you and me
And when you have a cyber friend, it matters not
How you look, what you wear, or what you've got

I don't care if your last name is Smith or Jones
Or if your size is perfect, plump, or skin and bones
You're there for me and I appreciate you
You've been a pal through thick and thin

You shared my glad times
And in my sad times, you made me grin
So I send this greeting card to you, dear friend so fine
To tell you, I'm so glad you're a pal of mine

And here's a hug, though not with arms

For that can't be...
But it's a hug, straight from my heart
To you, from me"

There were Fox hounds, Coon hounds and a Basset hound. I am thankful for my house where we have made our home, I am thankful for the Holy Spirit that is within me, who guides me in my life! When Jesus had to go away to Heaven and leave this earth and His Disciples (this includes us too) He sent us a Comforter who is the Holy Spirit. I am thankful for Holidays especially the Christmas Holiday and the whole season. This is the the best time of the year when we celebrate the birth of our King. His birth was announced to Shepards in their fields where they attended their flocks. The way the wonderful news was announced was by a Host of Heavenly Angels. The old, old story is the greatest ever told. I love to hear it every year at this time of being thankful and I feel so humble at the thought of why He come to earth as a little baby to be an example for our lives and die on the cross so that we might be saved from sin in this sinful world!! He will return soon for His Church.
Thank You my Lord!!
