It's been a good week...I've done a little shopping and that was fun! I've also been working on some Christmas crafts and that's been fun too!
Last night Mr D and I made a fresh pot of coffee, filled our mugs to the brim and went driving around enjoying all the Christmas lights. It's something we look forward to every year. It was cold, so we turned up the heat, tuned the radio to Christmas music, and enjoyed being together, isn't what what life's all about? Alas, it started raining and cut our drive short so we went to Waffle House and had breakfast for supper!
The traditional three colors of Christmas are green, red, and gold. Green has long been a symbol of life and rebirth; red symbolizes the blood of Christ, and gold represents light as well as wealth and royalty.
"This is Christmas: not the tinsel, not the giving and receiving, not even the carols, but the humble heart that receives anew the wondrous gift, the Christ."
Sweet Baby Jesus
Sweet Baby, Jesus, gentle and mild
Born in a manger, sweet, Holy, Child,
Shepherds and Wise Men came from afar,
Seeking a Savior, they followed a star,
Sweet Baby, Jesus, sent from above,
Son of our Father gift of God's love,
In realms of glory, angels did sing
Heavens rejoiced as they welcomed a King.
Sweet Baby, Jesus, Mary's sweet Child,
Light of our life, sweet Babe so mild,
There in a manger, Thou art adored,
Jesus, we greet Thee, our Savior, our Lord.
Sweet Baby, Jesus, send peace to earth,
Lift up all hearts through Thy holy birth.
Now at Thy crib, as evening draws nigh,
Hear this our praises from earth to the skies.
Until Next Time
