Christmas is Comming

Unbelievable; today is November 30th 25 days before Christmas, (fifteen days before our Christmas party) :) Steven wants a Nintendo Wii, I want him to keep his room clean, so he is not getting it, Samantha wants a pretty dress for Christmas and a picture camera, (she's cheap) sadly I haven't found anything really nice for her (that she likes) she had her little heart set on a pretty dress she saw in Walt mart of course it was the last one and 2 sizes too small, so I'm still looking for that pretty dress she wants for Christmas, Of course I'm looking forward to a nice dinner with my family, My niece is Coming from Costa Rica with her brand new Husband they'll be here some time this month, so I'm looking forward for that one, also my sister in law is coming from Arizona, would be nice to see her, she hasn't been here in Waterbury ever, and last time we saw her was on 9/11 , so we are due to see her.
I just receive a nice e-mail from Rose about Christmas, here's her note, something to think about:

T'was the month before Christmas,
When all through our land,
Not a Christian was praying
Nor taking a stand.
The PC Police had taken away
The reason for Christmas - no one could say.
The children were told by schools not to sing
About Shepherds and Wise Men, Angels and things.
It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say,
December 25th is just another " Holiday ".
Yet, the shoppers were ready
With cash, checks and credit,
Pushing folks to the floor
To make sure they get it!
CDs from Madonna, an XBox and I-Pod,
Something was changing, something quite odd.
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
Hoping to sell books by Franken and Fonda.
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down,
At Lowe's, the word "Christmas" was not to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears,
You won't hear "Christmas"; it won't touch your ears.
Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty
Are words that were used to intimidate me.
Now, Daschle! Now, Darden! Now, Sharpton! Wolf Blitzen!
On Boxer! On Rather! On Kerry! On Clinton !
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter,
To eliminate Jesus in all public matter.
And, we spoke not a word as they took away our faith,
Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace.
The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded,
Reason for the season was stopped 'fore it started.
So, as you celebrate "Winter Break" under your "Dream Tree",
Sipping your Starbucks, please listen to me.
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say,
Shout "MERRY CHRISTMAS"... not Happy Holiday .

What is the meaning of my name

I was looking at Christy's Blog and at the end I saw this link they give you the meaning of your name, I thought it was cute! since they say my name in Elf means: "Dixie Mince Meat" and in Native American means: Kimi Alaqua => Secret Sweet gum tree, it also told me that I was 75% nice and 25% naughty this yeas so I can expect gifts from Santa, (YEAH!) I'm also Rudolph the red nose reindeer, and a lemon cake, Je, Je, Je , take a look, it also said that I had only 48% of experience in life, and I thought I was wise :(, and I have the personality disorder of Marilyn Monroe, and to think that i really like her!
have fun

Sabbath Day

We are thought to keep the Sabbath day holly, and do something constructive; I mean! write a letter, make a phone call to someone we haven't seen in a while, or someone we didn't see at church, visit the sick and bring them the visiting message, do your monthly visiting teaching, read the scriptures, prepare a lesson for next week class; the list is endless, as long we keep it Holy, but I think loafing around is not a right way to keep it holy, I apologize for that; it looks like I'm high on cracker jacks, and I took Samantha down with me. Sometimes we need to rest, we are just "Spiritual beings having human experiences" I was listening when Bishop Evans gave that quote, it was really inspiring, and here I am doing a profound thinking about it. :D
Scripture of the Day

"Bring ye all the tithes
into the storehouse, that
there may be meat in mine house,
and prove me now herewith,
saith the Lord of hosts;
if I will not open you the
windows of heaven, and pour
you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough
to receive it

-Malachi 3:10-
Country Wisdom

"Friendship is
a plant
which must
often be

-German Proverb-
