The View From My Window – Dec. 18, 2020

This was actually yesterday’s view, but most mornings are similar, I just love “my” turkeys! (Pete took my window screen off, so future views will be clearer.)

Yesterday was a busy day, we both started and finished our Christmas shopping! I like to do it that way, getting ideas in my head for possible gifts, then getting to the stores to buy them all at once; it doesn’t drag on that way.

Today our 6YO granddaughter is coming to spend a couple of days with us too! Last weekend her 11YO brother was here, and of course Lyra wants equal time…so that will be fun! On the other hand, it usually doesn’t allow for much computer – or blogging – time, so after this post things will slow down for a couple of days.

In this last 7 days to Christmas I will be changing the photo on the main page every day, I have already selected the photos to us. And whenever I accumulate a few funny Christmas memes I will share those too! But this is a season of celebration, no matter what is going on in the world we always have the hope that is found in Christ, and joy in serving him, and nobody can take that away from us!

So with that I will be wrapping up here, and will see you next time!

  1. For the record, I would like to set some folks straight:
    No matter how hard you try or what reason you give or who you are,
    You can not cancel Christmas
    Definitely. Not. Your. Call.
    How can anyone be so righteous as to believe that they can actually cancel Christmas? Really??
    Maybe a suggestion to not travel or be around others, as we’ve been hearing in this Coviditized world. I can buy that. If that is what is meant, that’s what should be said (and it has been, many times).
    But to declare Christmas cancelled? Come on. smh

    1. Amen, amen, AMEN!!! Even Dr. Suess taught children this when he created the Grinch. But there are things nobody in this world can control (actually, most things). And Christmas is definitely one of them. GREAT comment, Gwen!

      1. Thank you!
        This issue is definitely one of those that causes a shudder that goes through me like a lightning bolt!
        That, along with when people misapply verses, such as
        I Cor 10:13: No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
        People commonly use this verse to say that “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” That is simply not what it says, and anything other than what it says is misleading and just plain wrong.
        (The other thing that really riles me is poor grammar. Just sayin’.)
