Greetings and Holykisses,
Morning came earlier for me than usual. I woke to check on our beloved Abraham. Abe's my dear, and faithful, little, corgi- boy. When I raised puppies, he was the "dad" of them all. Appropriately named too, as he fathered in his old age; having many descendants.
Lately; he's been having trouble getting up the steps. He's not only old, but overweight, and arthritic. Last night, I let him inside and just as he was scrambling up the step that goes from the craft room into the living room; he fell on it.* I could tell he was hurt but he's not one to arf,... and will suffer in silence. He walked into the kitchen and then started bleeding quite abit on the floor. :( I got it stopped for the most part, but he had to spend the night in my craft room on the tile. I made him a little bed, and had to carry him in and out to go potty. --So, I've been up early this morning... checking on him and hangin out with my lil buddy. Our poor little Abe; I'm pretty sure he'll be okay but we probably need to do something about all the steps around here. Maybe put something up against them to make it easier and safer for him.
Instead of going back to bed, I read in Proverbs awhile and then started the Purpose of Christmas dvd from the Purpose Driven Connection magazine. It was nice to be reminded of our focus of Christmas Time. The scriptures shared went well beyond the Christmas story in Luke and brought clarity to the purpose of why God sent His Son. One thought really caught my attention that I don't very often think about. And that's the fact that every time we say the date..., or write the date... we are recognizing Jesus in history A.D.-B.C.
How many times in a day, ... do I think of the date without ever reflecting what it truly defines: the birth of Jesus Christ. I check the calendar often. I notice the date on the guide of the television, and record the date every time I make a deposit, or write a check, or debit. Doing those things, I can honestly say I don't often think about Jesus' birthday. Yet it's because of Him, that we record and measure all time.
Speaking of time, yikes it's time to get ready for church!
Have a great sabbath!
