—-Angels We Have Heard On High
Ever since last week’s “Little Drummer Boy” I’ve really been getting in the Christmas spirit….and this video will do it quite nicely.
Here’s another fun one sent in an email from Kim Komando. The house…is really something. And I didn’t even notice the gnomes…did you?
I don’t think I’ve EVER seen Wild Bill so mad. The American People have always given generously of their time and money, and they send it to all corners of the earth.
Hear Bill tell you why the liberals are keeping Christmas gifts from reaching poor kids. It’s pathetic.
Bill wins my Nobody’s Fool award for the week…again.
The Little Drummer Boy has never been one of my favorite Christmas songs…due to the fact that besides the words, the melody is very boring.
BUT…look at what great hearts and imagination can do to this: They beautifully transformed it into the wonders of the human soul. (not to mention, great special audio effects)
It’s Christmas Eve, and this is not the day to talk about politics, it’s a day to tell the ones we love, just HOW much they mean to us…to go to a church, even if you usually don’t, and to think of Jesus, and his teachings…whether you think he was the son of God or not.
I’m taking today and tomorrow off…Of COURSE! Like everyone…I can’t wait to spend time with my little family.
You know, I think God wanted me to post this little poem: I am in the process of doing an inventory of all my books, and I came upon this poem just by sheer accident today. It made me think of all the babies that have died before their time, (like the ones in Newtown, and my dear friend Doug Powers who lost his own dear angel so long ago) and all the parent’s who love their children, how their love never dies.
It also is a great example for men…Jesus picks up the child and puts them on his lap. As amfortas has told us, nowadays a man, who is not the father of a young child, would probably be ostracized harshly for putting a child on his lap, unless he was pretending to be Santa Claus.
But the main reason I love this poem, is it shows the REAL point of Christ: The mother took her “heavy heart” and it was lifted. And so, this is the true miracle of faith. If you have faith in a power higher than yourself, life, and it’s hardships, are much easier to bear. Really, it’s a no-brainer.
So, Nobody Says—May You all have a Merry Christmas! God bless us all…and Tiny Tim too!
Christ and the Little Ones
“The Master has come over Jordan.” Said Hannah the mother one day:
“He is healing the people who throng Him, with a touch of His finger they say.
“And now I shall carry the children, Little Rachel and Samuel and John,
I shall carry the baby Esther, For the Lord to look upon.”
The father looked at her kindly, but he shook his head and smiled:
“Now who but a doting mother would think of a thing so wild?”
“If the children were tortured by demons, or dying of fever, ’twere well:
Or had they the taint of the leper, like many in Israel.”
“Nay, do not hinder me, Nathan, I feel such a burden of care; If I carry it to the Master,
Perhaps I shall leave it there.
“If He lay His hand on the children, my heart will be lighter, I know.
For a blessing for ever and ever, will follow them as they go.”
So over the hills of Judah, Along by the vine rows green,
With Esther asleep on on her bosom, and Rachel her brothers between:
‘Mid the people who hung on HIs teaching, or waited His touch and His word,
Through the row of proud Pharisees listening she pressed to the feet of the Lord.
“Now why shouldst thou hinder the Master,” Said Peter, “with children like these?”
Seest not how from morning to evening He teacheth and healeth disease?”
Then Christ said “Forbid not the children, permit them to come unto me!”
And HE took in HIs arms little Esther, and Rachel He sat on His knee:
And the heavy heart of the mother was lifted all earth care above,
as HE laid His hand on the brothers, and blest them with holiest love.
As He said of the babes in His bosom, “Of such are the Kingdom of Heaven”–
And strength for all duty, and trial that hour to her spirit was given.

His 4-year-old daughter Barbara sat on his lap quietly sobbing. Bob’s wife, Evelyn, was dying of cancer.
Little Barbara couldn’t understand why her mommy could never come home. Barbara looked up into her dad’s eyes and asked, “Why isn’t Mommy just like everybody else’s Mommy?”
“The DOG ate my homework!”
“I had a flat tire, and that’s why I’m late!”
“My alarm didn’t go off…”
“I fainted because I had a virus, hit my head, and so I just can’t make it to Congress to testify because the doctor told me I have to rest my brain…..”
WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sustained a concussion last week after becoming extremely dehydrated and fainting while suffering from a stomach virus, the State Department said. The 65-year-old Clinton is recovering at home and has been advised by her doctors to continue to rest and avoid strenuous activity and cancel all work events for the next week.
Democrat “insisted that given her condition, she could not and should not appear” as planned, said Kerry spokeswoman Jodi Seth. Obama is expected to nominate Kerry to succeed Clinton.
Excuses. We’ve all heard them, we’ve all used them, and some are much better than others.
Excuses are what humans use to get out of something they don’t want to do…like jury duty, a date we don’t want to go on, or a day off from work so we can go to the SuperBowl….but when Joe Blow skips work, in most matters, it doesn’t affect the whole country, unlike our famous politicians.
Hillary…can’t testify in the most important scandal of this century because she’s…got to rest her brain.
HA HA HA HA…who knew she had one?
And this episode made me think of another famous politician who was a bit more creative when it came to excuses—Remember with me….
WASHINGTON — President Bush briefly lost consciousness Sunday after he choked on a pretzel while watching a football game on television in his living quarters, the White House said.
After fainting, the president tumbled to the floor from a couch, bruising his lower lip and suffering an abrasion the size of a half dollar on his left cheek, White House physician Dr. Richard Tubb said he fainted due to a temporary decrease in heart rate brought on by swallowing a pretzel.
So we as Americans must ask: Why do we keep electing people that fall off of c ouches, and have to “rest their brains.”
Nobody Thinks that Presidential PR people get paid BIG BUCKS to sit around a table and come up with creative excuses to get their bosses out of trouble.
“Well, we could tell the truth…”
“No..here’s what you do. You make up something that is so unbelievable, nobody will question it. Hillary can’t testify because last time she testified she said “I don’t remember” over 784 times. Some people actually REMEMBER that. So here’s what we’ll do. She’s got a flu right? We’ll just say she was dehydrated and fell over an hit her head and got a concussion, so when she DOES testify, she can say “I don’t remember” and EVERYONE will believe it was due to her concussion! Problem solved!”
Well, MSNBC bought it. But my dog doesn’t believe a word of it. And that’s why Nobody is giving George W. Bush the hands on winner in the Nobody’s Perfect contest this week.
Anybody who can fall off a soft couch while watching football, gaze his head in, bust his lip…a gash that looks more like he crashed while he was bike riding, or got in a fight with some guy in Texas..and because he didn’t want to lose his macho image, he said he choked on a pretzel…
THAT man has bigger cohunes than Hillary. Or better yet, THAT man was President and knew he couldn’t be touched, Hillary on the other hand, needs to get out of testifying.
Hillary should stand trial for her crimes in the Benghazi scandal. But..if she doesn’t , then running for President should be completely out of the question..
After all…if she is so brain dead she can’t make it to a Congressional hearing, she certainly can’t be President.
YES SHE CAN!
Now, that I’ve got that out of my system…I need to tell my husband that, “I didn’t pick up his medicine because I thought it was Sunday.”
This stuff could work wonders for us all…and we need to do is watch…and learn.
“I couldn’t find my keys!”
” My SISTER was on the phone for over an hour!”
“I have a fever…” (Feel free to donate your best)
“I had the flu, and fell down because I was working SO hard, that I started RUNNING to the plane, and then while I was trying to save a baby, who was being attacked by a terrorist, I stuck the pretzel I was carrying in my mouth, and then I choked, and USED my body to drop the terrorist who was trying to kidnap the baby, and fell to the ground, and banged my head, and so I just can’t show up for anything…
Don’t worry…the baby is fine due to my quick thinking. “

I got this as an email Christmas card…and if you haven’t seen it, it might just cheer up your day! It did mine.

Going shopping? I wish I’d been at THIS mall to hear THIS flash mob. These people not only have fantastic voices, you can tell by the looks on their faces that they are filled with God’s grace…just look at those faces.
This one got me very misty eyed…
ENJOY! (And thank amfortas)

Here’s one I got last week. It’s about a no-nonsense governor of Maine, Paul LaPage, who Nobody wishes would got more media time.
(Thanks to Tom Beebe)
THE LAW IS THE LAW!
I really love this one.
This is one of the better e-mails I have received in a long time! I hope this makes its way around the USA several times over!!!!! HERE IS WHAT Governor LaPage said:
“THE LAW IS THE LAW So “if” the US government determines that it is against the law for the words “under God” to be on our money, then, so be it. And “if” that same government decides that the “Ten Commandments” are not to be used in or on a government installation, then, so be it. I say, “so be it,” because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen I say, “so be it,” because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions. I would like to think that those people have the American public’s best interests at heart.
BUT, he said, “YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I’D LIKE? Since we can’t pray to God, can’t Trust in God and cannot post His Commandments in Government buildings, I don’t believe Government (Federal, State and Local) and its employees should participate in Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of American life.
I’d like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter. After all, it’s just another day. I’d like the” US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays.” After all, it’s just another day.
I’d like the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry about getting home for the “Christmas Break.” After all it’s just another day.
I’m thinking a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter.
It shouldn’t cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be “politically correct.”
In fact…. I think our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshipping God….) because, after all, our government says that it should be just another day….” What do you all think????
If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop giving in to the “minority opinions” and begin, once again, to represent the “majority” of ALL of the American people. SO BE IT……….. Please Dear Lord, Give us the help needed to keep you in our country! ‘Amen’ and ‘Amen’ Touché!
If this gets around the country a few times, perhaps we will see a better day!
