After Christmas Poem

'Twas the day after Christmas

And down at the store,

Shoppers were searching

For bargains galore.

A sweater for auntie.

She'd think that was nice.

A scarf for mother.

They're both at half price.

Some came with purpose,

Toting a big sack,

With all the spare gifts

That they had brought back.

Gift certificates

Were cashed in with glee,

Which brought more goodies

For you and for me.

But smartest of all

Were… Continue

Tis the Season

During this Christmas Season I want to encourage you to remember the true reason for the season.  Too often we get caught up with Black Friday shopping, Cyber Monday, and all the holiday parties and events we attend that we don’t relish in the true reason for the season.  

Jesus is the reason for the season!  As you shop, eat, mingle, remember we are celebrating Christ’s birth and as we celebrate and remember Christ birth, we should also be reflective of his second…

What this phrase has done is taken Christ out of Christmas. Its as bad as X-mas to me. I get that no one wants to offend anyone, but who then are you offending…

Ho Ho No!

Santa-chimney_thumb   I’m probably in the minority with my opinion about today’s topic.  The older I get, the more I feel that trying to get kids to believe in Santa Claus is a waste of time.

Let me explain why I feel this way.  I’m always telling my son to tell me the truth, even if he thinks it’s bad.  So, why should I as his parent harp on this…
