I know I have several emails to answer, and I'm really sorry I have not had the time to do so. When I am finished with this blog, I promise I will start on them. I will not promise that I will get to them all, though. I'll start at the bottom and work my way up.

It has been such a busy week for me. Would you believe I just got my purchased gifts wrapped very late last night?

I did take the day off from work today, but I had to travel about 40 miles from home to turn my paperwork in to my job. The trip over there was awful with a complete white-out at times, and the roads were really bad traveling. It did stop snowing while I was in that town, and the roads were already much better traveling back here. I stopped in at my sister's to make a quick pudding pie with peaches before heading home.

My daughter and crew are coming through some horrid weather to get here. I was expecting her between 2 and 3 p.m. today, but I don't think they'll get here much before 6. I told her to wait for a few days until the weather got better, but...... she's so much like her mother. I recall them doing the same thing last year as well. They'll be here for 10 days with me, though.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas, and I have a re-post of a Christmas poem I wrote last year. I hope you enjoy it.

The Keeper

Christmas is coming, indeed it is
'Tis right around the bend
We're all on our best behavior now
Our hearts are on the mend

There'll be laughing and singing and carefree hearts
No wonder! such glorious moods
From all around the globe, it seems
Even by those considered as prudes

There'll be many shouts of "Merry Christmas!"
Followed by hollers and hoots
We'll smile at all the Santas
In their brightly colored suits

We'll listen intently to the carolers
Standing outside our door
Singing their songs of peace, joy and hope
Leaving us yearning for more

Our homes are brightly decorated
Many lights both inside and out
The aroma of fresh baked goodies
Fill all of our senses, no doubt

Children gathered 'round the Christmas tree
Tiny voices so sweet and low
Sharing stories of Baby Jesus
So precious that they know

If we're feeling sad or lonely
Around our shoulder is an arm
All we need do is think of Him
To feel alive and warm

Take into consideration, though
While passing the cheer around
There are those we need to think about
One would hope prayers would abound

Let's not forget to pray for the soldiers
Their parents, husbands and wives
These soldiers that'll be missing Christmas
While protecting our very lives

Let's not forget to pray for the people
While on our bended knees
Those that have no homes, no food
No clothing nor families

Let's not forget to celebrate
The reason we're so blessed
It's because of Baby Jesus's birth
But I'm sure you must have guessed

So when Christmas does come
Remember on that morn
To give praise to GOD
For that 'Star' that was born

The Lord is the Keeper of our hearts
The Keeper of our goals
He's the Keeper of our minds
And the Keeper of our souls

The Lord is the Keeper of Venus
And also the Keeper of Mars
He's the Keeper of our lives
He's the Keeper of the stars


They can try to take our GOD away, but in our hearts........He'll forever stay!

Wishing a 'Joyous and Blessed Merry Christmas' to each and every one of you...

Merry Christmas, Darling - The Carpenters
