    *'Twas The Day After Christmas*

    Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house, Every creature was hurting-- even the mouse.

    The toys were all broken, their batteries dead; Santa passed out, with some ice on his head.

    Wrapping and ribbons just covered the floor, while Upstairs the family continued to snore.

    And I in my T-shirt, new Reeboks and jeans, Went into the kitchen and started to clean.

    When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the sink to see what was the matter.

    Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the curtains, and threw up the sash.

    When what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a little white truck, with an oversized mirror.

    The driver was smiling, so lively and grand; The patch on his jacket said "U.S. POSTMAN."

    With a handful of bills, he grinned like a fox Then quickly he stuffed them into our mailbox.

    Bill after bill, after bill, they still came. Whistling and shouting he called them by name:

    "Now Dillard's, now Broadway's, now Penney's and Sears Here's Levitz's and Target's and Mervyn's--all here!!

    To the tip or your limit, every store, every mall, Now chargeaway-chargeaway-chargeaway all!"

    He whooped and he whistled as he finished his work. He filled up the box, and then turned with a jerk.

    He sprang to his truck and he drove down the road, Driving much faster with just half a load.

    Then I heard him exclaim with great holiday cheer, "ENJOY WHAT YOU GOT ... YOU'LL BE PAYING ALL YEAR!"

    Jesus and santa

    Body: Santa lives at the North Pole.
    JESUS is everywhere.

    Santa rides in a sleigh
    JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.

    Santa comes but once a year
    JESUS is an ever present help.

    Santa fills your stockings with goodies
    JESUS supplies all your needs.

    Santa comes down your chimney uninvited
    JESUS stands at your door and knocks.. and then enters your heart.

    You have to stand in line to see Santa
    JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.

    Santa lets you sit on his lap
    JESUS lets you rest in His arms.

    Santa doesn't know your name, all he can say is "Hi little boy or girl,
    What's your name?"
    JESUS knew our name before we did.Not only does He know our name, He knows
    our address too.He knows our history and future and He even knows how many
    hairs are on our heads.

    Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly
    JESUS has a heart full of love.

    All Santa can offer is HO HO HO
    JESUS offers health, help and hope.

    Santa says "You better not cry"
    JESUS says "Cast all your cares on me for I care for you.

    Santa's little helpers make toys
    JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes and
    builds mansions.

    Santa may make you chuckle but
    JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.

    While Santa puts gifts under your tree
    JESUS became our gift and died on the tree.

    It's obvious there is really no comparison.
    We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about.
    We need to put Christ back in Christmas.
    Jesus is still the reason for the season.
    Yes, Jesus is better, he is even better than Santa Claus!

    Why Don't We...?

    Phil Callaway says:

    "Why don't we have a seperate cell phone lane and let the rest of us drivers get on our way!"

    Hmmmmm, maybe because it would soon become the crash lane?

    Choir performances are like life... you just have to keep going

    Sunday morning we did about half the christmas program, and boy did things go wrong!
    We had problems with the sound, the monitors weren't working, the mikes on the actors developed severe scratching noises, and we had plenty of feedback. On one number the CD even started to skip! (I thought that went out with records!) We started that song over. Even though we had all those problems, we still got through it. We will all have problems in life. With God's help we will be able to keep on "performing" for Him!

    FYI  the name of the program was "In the fullness of time" by Richard Kingsmore

    It's OK to wish me a Merry Christmas!

    Okay. Wish Me a Merry Christmas
    By Charlene Israel
    CBN News Reporter
    November 24, 2007

    CBNNews.com - Last Christmas, Ashley Tartar became a frustrated shopper after retailers continually wished her "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas."

    "I felt slightly offended. They're trying to be inoffensive to everyone but at the same time they're not recognizing my holiday. They're actually trying to silence the Good News that Christmas brings and I said 'You know this isn't right,'" Tartar said.

    So this year, she set out to change things.

    "I thought, how is someone going to know that it's okay to wish me a "Merry Christmas" other than the fact that I'm wearing green and red and I have crazy jingle bell earrings on," she said. "I came up with this idea that I wish I could wear a button that says 'It's Ok, Wish Me A Merry Christmas.'

    As the debate over Christmas songs, symbols and even Christmas colors abounds, Tartar's Wish Me a Merry Christmas Campaign appeals directly to retailers to put Christmas back into the holidays.

    "If something doesn't happen to turn the tide now, an entire generation of people is not going to know that Christmas used to be celebrated very publicly by the vast majority of Americans," Tartar says.

    The campaign's goal is to circulate one-million buttons. Upon reaching that mark, Tartar plans to contact the top 30 retailers in the country explaining the wishes of these one-million customers to have "Merry Christmas" in stores once again.
