An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 25 December 2009
You might have noticed I haven’t really posted anything today. Why? Well, cuz it’s CHRISTmas ya doofus! DUH! Woke up WAY too early, ate WAY too much, and snoozed through what seems to be a rather boring movie. Woke up, watched Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince…..too depressing….ate some more, and decided to start deleting emails and check up on the world in general. I rather wish I hadn’t. Pfft!
It was a rather pleasant day, even if I did get an I.O.U. from the Mr. HE, on the other hand got quite a nice present from me, which of course, Ick was holding while I was taking the picture and he forgot to hold still.
In case ya can’t tell what it is……
He’s been eye-balling this thing for months. Since I had no idea what to get him, when in doubt….get a gun!
Naturally, there was something under the tree for Rocky Moose. Unfortunately, this time, it was too big. So, Ick put in on Bocephus Beauregard.
Now, I’m SO ready to slap on the jammies, crawl in bed, and remain in a horizontal position until Sunday!
I pray everyone had a wonderful day with family, friends and food! Please remember those who are far from home, and always keep them in your prayers!
1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.
2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
