Got the above from my son Benjamin, a former Navy Petty Officer...a humorous but stark reminder we live in a world that is ruled by the aggressive use of force. As much as we all wish there could be Peace On Earth, and Good Will Toward Men, that remains a goal to be achieved rather than a present reality. In this Christmas season we turn our eyes toward God in heaven and thank Him once again for the gift of His Son as we look forward to the time when Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done On Earth As It Is In Heaven.
Until then, we remain ready to cross as many frozen rivers as necessary to protect our God given rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Merry Christmas, y'all....
We were shopping in a department store the other day and they had bunches of these little silver Christmas trees all over the store:
Karen has been busy cooking today, and tonight we'll stick with tradition and watch Scrooge...best movie adaptation of Dickens' A Christmas Carol ever.
Hope whatever your traditions are on Christmas Eve, you take time to give thanks to God in heaven for the gift of His Son.
A Christmas Eve Haiku
Full moon, Christmas Eve,
Heralding the wondrous gift:
Christ our new born King.
Merry Christmas, mcm fans...
