Observe life at its best, listen to life’s songs, embrace life’s bounties, breathe the breath of life and savor life to its fullest!

The Reason for the Season: Spread the pure Joy!

The Christmas season is filled with times of joyful gathering…family, friends, colleagues, co-workers, acquaintances from many different backgrounds. The main question is…why do you join others in celebration at this time of year? Is it simply feasting and partying, dressing in fancy attire, for camaraderie, perhaps time to catch up on happenin’s throughout the year? What makes it different from any other gathering? There is only one reason for this season which should remain at the top of the list, the star of the Christmas tree, the most wondrous gift of them all…

 *****
May we never be so focused on getting gifts & PRESENTS 
that we forget to receive…
 *****
*****
…the gift of HIS PRESENCE!
 *****

 

Spread the pure joy!


There is magic in Christmas
A time for joy, a time of peace
Sharing, caring, preparing
As cascading snowflakes increase
*****
A star tops the Christmas tree
Presents of love beneath
All in the joy of giving
Encircling like a wreath
*****
People come, people go
All in the name of good cheer
Wishing Merry Christmas
And the happiest New Year
*****
Coziness of a fireplace
A warm hug, tender kiss
Christmas Eve closes in prayer
No one dares not miss
*****
While saying Merry Christmas
With wishes for a Happy New Year 
How many celebrate birth
The real reason behind all the cheer?
*****
Wining, dining, feeling fine
Feasting on the best
When asked why YOU celebrate
What do you attest?
*****
Hope in Christmastime
The message of the season
Birth of our Savior
Truly the blessed reason
*****

A Touch of Catnip

keyboardcat1

Doesn’t appear our little feline friend is playing Beethoven’s Fifth…”bum bum bum buuuuuummmm” by his/her keyboard strokes so let’s use a little imagination and pretend the little fellow (or gal) is striking a familiar Christmas tune.

Christmas is a special time of year when music fills the air while sweet-smelling aromas tickle the nose of each passerby, whether within the home kitchen, along city sidewalks and streets or weaving along country roads. While this is a time of caring and giving, let us not forget those darling little ‘angels’ that bring so much joy and love into the home. Let’s make theirs a purr-fectly wonderful Christmas as they make ours a melodically meowy Christmas!
