Jesus Is The Reason
In Bethlehem, God gave to us
The source of Christmas joy;
A star shown on a miracle:
The virgin birth of a boy.
He was born both God and man,
A Savior for us all,
The way to get to our heavenly home,
If we just heed His call.
So as we shop and spend and wrap
And enjoy the Christmas season,
Let's keep in mind the sacred truth:
Jesus is the reason.
Thanks for reading my blog,and I wish you and your Family a Merry Merry Christmas.

Even if you fall on your face youíre still moving forward.
This is true because if youíre afraid to fail you wonít make any progress and there is only progress or regress, thereís no standing still. Youíre either moving forward or youíre moving backward. You always want to keep forward momentum, even if that involves falling on your face. Youíll learn from the experience and be able to apply that to future challenges, potentially avoiding future face-falling. When you donít attempt something for fear of falling on your face, you donít move forward, and you end up shriveling into a version of yourself that is not as great as it could be.
Thanks for stopping by,and for reading my blog,wishing you all a great night.

The Treasures In You
There are treasures in life, but owners are few
Of money and power to buy things brand new
Yet you can be wealthy and feel regal too,
If you will just look for the treasures in you.
These treasures in life are not hard to find
When you look in your heart, your soul, and your mind.
For when you are willing to share what's within,
Your fervent search for riches will end.
The joy and the laughter, the smile that you bring;
The heart unafraid to love and to sing;
The hand always willing to help those in need;
Ones quick to reach out, to labor and feed.
So thank you for sharing these great gifts inside;
The caring, the cheering, the hug when one cried.
Thanks for the energy, encouragement too,
And thank you for sharing the treasures in you.
Thanks for reading my blog, and hope you all have a good night.

Why would you want to be someone else
When you could be better by being yourself
Why pretend to be someone you are not
When you have something they haven't got
Cheating yourself of the life you have to live
Deprives others of that only which you can give
You have much more to offer by being just you
Than walking around in someone else's shoes
Trying to live the life of another is a mistake
It is a masquerade; nothing more than a fake
Be yourself and let your qualities show through
Others will love you more for being just you
Remember that God loves you just as you are
To Him you are already a bright shining star
Family and friends will love you more too
If you spent time practicing just being you
Thanks for stopping by,and thanks for reading my blog,have a great Night.

Lord, I'm thankful for so many things
as this day of 'thanks' draws near.
It seems the list much longer grows
with every passing year.
I've told you, Lord, so often
how grateful I am to you,
For listening to my prayers, Lord
And answering as you do.
So I thank you for my husband
a man that's truly rare;
Someone so perfect for me
I know he's an 'answered' prayer.
And it makes me smile each Holiday
and feel especially blessed
'cause once again my kids will bring
Their kids back to the nest
We'll laugh, and love and just be glad
we can spend time with each other
My heart... and eyes...will overflow
With each "I love you, Mother"
I thank you for my Grandkids.
Lord, I guess you knew...
How much they would need me;
how much I'd need them ,too.
They give their love so freely,
as only a child can do.
Without them I might grow old, Lord,
and I'm grateful that you knew.
I thank you for my Sisters ,Lord,
and for my brother, too.
You've given me a family
that anyone would choose.
Each one brings their special gifts...
Love; wisdom; patience, too,
and puts them in the family pot
For everyone to use.
I thank you, Lord, for mom and dad
I told you my list was long....
But how can I not be grateful for
a bond that is so strong.
They've been my anchor and my refuge
when the storms seemed not to end.
And next to you, I always knew
On them I could depend.
Good friends...Oh Lord how I thank you,
for those so close and dear...
That take the place of family
When family isn't near.
And I thank you for this country, Lord
The good ole U. S. of A.
For all her faults, She's still the best
God, bless America I pray.
I'm thankful, Lord that I can go
to any church I choose.
And when our leaders have done wrong
I can read it in the news.
I'm thankful, Lord, that because of you,
Hope is always there.
I thank you for this life of mine...
and for those with whom it's shared.
Happy Thanksgiving to you,and thanks for reading my blog.
