Christmas Memories

By Norene G. - 18 Hours Ago

I recall in memories of years long ago;
Merriment, laughter—playing in snow.

A simpler time—when kids knew their place,
Our Lord reigned superior with His love & grace.

Christmas was not just presents galore—
We didn’t expect much from our local store.

There were no malls, no ‘Black Friday’ crowds,
Too many Santas ho-ho-hoing too loud.

I remember the joy, caroling, and such,
Greetings on streets we welcomed so much.

After Thanksgiving, decorations were hung,
And on our radio, “White Christmas” was sung.

Trees lit in each house with memories to last
Reflecting off white snow as we hurried passed.

Christmas plays with carols sung at school—
Atheist’s beliefs not the main rule.

Gathering together with family and friends,
Mountains of food heartily stuffed in.

But mostly remembering why we celebrate
The most precious of holiday dates,

Remembering why baby Jesus was born
To free us from sin, misery, and scorn.

Yes, my memories are that of long, long ago
Learning of Jesus, and why I love Him so.

December 20th, Happy Saturday

By Zelda Hopkins - 18 Hours Ago

Good Morning To Everyone,

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Saturday. What are your plans for the weekend ? I am going to lay back and enjoy the weekend. Now you know that isn't true because I have to many things to get done. LOL
Hey Andy where's the paintings, I'm beginning to have with drawls with out seeing one. And I'm still waiting on that kicked up Mac n Cheese Recipe.
Congratulations Becky Beck for winning the pie contest that our friends Bob Cooney had for making pies for someone in need. I made pies and give them to people but did not enter the contest.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Prayer request

By Straw's Kitchen - Yesterday at 9:38 PM

I would like to ask for prayers for my brother Rocky....he has been ill for a few years now and is failing more.

He has an incurable disease called "Locomotor Ataxia Progressive Supranuclear Palsy".
He now has to use a walker or wheelchair all the taking motor therapy, speech therapy and getting other help. He falls often, splitting his head a few months ago taking 19 staples to hold it together.

They thought he had a stroke the other day and he's now in the hospital...will be going from their to rehab for 10 days or so.

Also pray for his wife ReaDawn for strength taking care of him. The doctors want her to place him into a nursing-home, but she says she's not ready to do that.

Thank you in advance for your prayers....CinStraw
