Nobody Flashes a Christian’s Faith….to the Overlords of State
(Thanks to Kris and Pentatonix for my favorite Christmas song.)
I’m told I have a “moral obligation” as a Christian to welcome the refugees here.*************I find it quite humorous that now we are allowed to talk about God, what Jesus would do and how I’m supposed to act as a Christian when these very same people have so violently decried against anything Christian related in the past.****************You want me to do my Christian duty, but you want me to keep my religion out of schools.****************You want me to act accordingly as a Christian, but you condemn any public displays of Christianity.**************You say the government has a moral obligation to accept refugees since we are a Christian nation, but you have vehemently clamored for separation of church and state, albeit erroneously.******************I’m told I am a fake Christian now, when you have demanded I keep my faith to myself so I do not offend anyone.***************You say Christian Americans do not view refugee children as a life worth saving and yet you ignore the lives that continue to let be killed by not only Planned Parenthood, but also ignore the Yazidis and Assyrians that continue to be killed.***************The only time you and your ilk want to talk about Christians and their duties is when you can milk it for political gains and when you try to guilt us into doing something.***************Other than that, I’m told to keep my “mythical relationship with an imaginary being ” to myself.It’s absolutely ironic that those who have clamored so violently for Christians to shut up and take a back seat, now want to use Christianity for their own nefarious purposes.***************
This video broke my heart: Where’s the Al Sharpton’s, holding HER hand? Where’s Eric Holder, comforting the widow? The longer Obama is in office the darker the days become. How are we suppose to dismiss ourselves from it all?
I got a solicitor call tonight..wanting to know if I would take a survey. “Who’s paying for it?” I asked. “I don’t know” said the lady. But the survey was all about promoting people to use more bikes. Wouldn’t I like my neighborhood to be more bike friendly? Would I go play soccer or basketball in the park?
“Lady, I live near Ferguson, do you really think anybody plays in the park?”
Anyway, that’s why it’s so important to spend the next couple of days with my family. I hope every one of my readers have a great holiday, filled with laughs, good food, and wonderful moments of joy.
There WAS a good news story today. Last night in Germany, over 17,000 people gathered in the streets and sang Christmas Carols.:
The German PEGIDA movement held its largest meeting yet last night to protest what they call the ‘Islamisation of the Western World’, despite stiff opposition from all sections of Germany’s elite including politicians, media, and the arts.
In addition to the hundreds of banners with slogans such as ‘Against Hatred, Violence, and the Quran’, ‘Against Religious Fanaticism’, and ‘No Sharia in Europe’, the thousands attending brought song sheets which had been distributed online and sang favourite Christmas carols.
Oh, I would have loved to have been there and joined in.
And so, in the spirit of Christmas, I wish every one of you reading this the very best wishes for the holidays, whether you’re Christian or not, it’s the tradition of family and love, and great food, isn’t it?
And on that note, I plan to enjoy the next two days off….and I hope you enjoy this song as much as I did.
See you on Friday!
If you missed the Straight No Chaser guys the first time around, here they are, taking another rather annoying Christmas song and doing fun things! They have made a regular career out of themselves. Really, you’ll enjoy this if you haven’t seen it.
And I can even give everyone a fun thing to do with the family this Christmas…something I made up one Christmas for my own audiences:
You pick twelve people out of the crowd (in your case family) and each one gets a day. And they can say WHATEVER they want to make up. Everyone sings the “On the lst day of Christmas my true love gave to me…..and then the person who has ONE jumps up and says….whatever comes to his mind.
“Nine janitors trashing, eight kitties barking, seven Biden’s barfing, six men a drinking, FIVE Golden Banana Cakes! “
You get the idea. Just don’t give them too much time to think about it, so they have to STAND up and shout out when it first comes their turn, and it always helps if you do it after everyone has had a few glasses of wine to get them warmed up.
But I give you fair warning…you might hear things you never thought were possible, most of them having to do with sex.
Of course, if there are kids there, you must simply be silly, and by all means, let them join in.
I have urgent news…this could perhaps be as important as the questions concerning Obamacare. It seems, Nobody Knows what the real Santa Claus looks like! Megyn Kelly started this. She insists Santa is white. This is racist isn’t it? Sure it is! …but before you get upset about this important subject, I think it’s time we all took a vote, Nobody Suggests that to end this debate, everyone just pick a Santa he or she likes the best, and write to him. After all, it’s Christmas. If you don’t get your present, pick a different one next year. Sooner or later, you’ll get your present. (Hint: If you are black, you must choose carefully.)
I have until the 18th of December to try out a few of WordPress’s templates. Now, this is important: If any of the new ones are not as well liked as this format (which some have called ‘cold’ I’m not really sure why) tell me. Also, tell me if you prefer some of the other ones. Don’t worry…there won’t be many and after the 18th I will be back on this, if not before.
As for the video: I bet the WestJet executive that thought this promotional PR Santa stunt up got a big bonus this year. It was brilliant. It’s called WestJet Christmas Miracle.

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?”

I got this video from my liberal friend, who I met at my local library about five years ago. We both were taking a class in EXCEL, and became fast friends because, when it came to computers, we both we in wonderment…like little kids.
We STILL hold that same childlike attitude about many things. Anyway, when he sent me this video he said, “How do they think up these things?”
That’s my bud. JR is in his 70’s, and yet, still holds his love of learning, and that’s one of the reasons we get along. While our politics are completely opposite, neither one of us has ever gotten mad at our opinions.
Hatred, gets you…nowhere.

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)
Why would anyone put up 58 Christmas trees in the White House, and then…go to Hawaii and not even look at them? Is this a record for Christmas trees in the White House? And is that the biggest gingerbread house ever made?
While the country is about to be forced into a major depression, Obama and Mochelle seem to think nothing of spending another $4 billion on a three-week vacation (at our expense) in Hawaii…and that’s not counting the REAL cost. So…tell me—Why do they need 54 Christmas trees at the White House? Oh wait, they are called “Holiday” trees…right.
Oh..and just to make us all feel good about the fact that they ACT LIKE KINGS! They have announced that this year’s theme is JOY TO US! I mean…’Joy to All’
This year's theme is Joy to All.
(Translation: Have fun now folks, because in a few months, the joy will be gone.)
It celebrates the many joys of the holiday seasons, the joy of giving and service to others, the joy of sharing our blessings with one another and of course, the joy of welcoming our friends and families as guests into our homes over these next several weeks.
(“Service to others? Gee…how about doing us all a big service and don’t tax us to death. Nobody’s sure, as soon as you get back from Hawaii, those 58 “holiday” trees will be chump change compared to the elaborate parties you are going to throw for your second inauguration. You want us to hate the rich? Well, you’re helping that theme right along.)
We've also continued the tradition of decorating trees throughout the House. We have 54 trees in the White House. 54! That's a lot of trees.
(Wow..Michelle…can count. Who knew? Let’s all send copies of our household expenses to Michelle….and ask her to count it all up. Maybe she can learn how to balance a budget, now that she can actually count. )
We have found some wonderful ways to pay tribute to your service and sacrifice as an important part of ourholiday decorating
efforts here at the White House. And it starts, as you all have seen, the minute visitors walk through the White House for their tours, the first thing they see, the very first tree they see, honors our men and women inuniform
for the extraordinary sacrifice they and their families have made. And thanks to several of you here today, I know that this tree is now decorated with special gold star ornaments bearing the names of some of America's greatest heroes, those who gave their lives for our country.
(Service and sacrifice–translation: You WILL sacrifice everything, because we are going to take it from you. )
We are also honoring our military families with some very special decorations on the official White HouseChristmas tree
that's in the Blue Room. That's the biggest tree in the house. It's huge, stands close to 19 feet tall, it is one of my favorite trees. This very special "Joining Forces" tree is covered with hand-decorated ornaments made by military children living in U.S. bases around the world.
(Oh…give the BIG tree to the vets because THEY didn’t get to vote. How generous of you. Many of the ones losing their jobs and benefits can now go and see their “joining forces” tree and feel better. Good thing you won’t be there.–smart. )
And of course, keeping with past holiday traditions, we have our annual White House Gingerbread House. Yeah, have you guys seen that yet? A White House holiday staple since the 1960s, this year's house weighs nearly 300 pounds so it's a pretty big house, and its walls are made to resemble granite, so he did some kind of technique to make it look like real granite. And it even includes chandeliers that light up. It glows.
(Come on Michelle,…put 58 Christmas trees in that GINGERBREAD House, and really make it glow. Wait…those are “holiday trees.” A gingerbread house that looks like concrete? Wow–very fitting. I would like to shake the hand of the artist.)
So..if you are wondering why anyone who had the privileged of spending Christmas at the White House with 58 beautiful trees..why in the world, would they want to leave?
Because.—-.as Obama once so very gallantly said: You can put red lipstick on a pig…but it’s…still a pig.
Do you honestly think a Muslim wants to spend Christmas anywhere?
