Are your decorations up? Don't worry...

Wendie Pett has a company called Visibly Fit. Here's a quote I liked from a recent email.

"I failed miserably at getting all my Christmas decorations up this year. It's so bad that I didn't even put ornaments on the tree...only lights and a cross for the topper! When I asked my son about putting on ornaments he said, "Mom, Christmas isn't about a's about Jesus and his birthday!" He is absolutely correct! Technically, there is still time to put ornaments on the tree, but I've decided to keep them off to make a statement. It's just another reminder to us about the true reason for the season. The stress, pressure, and busyness can be a distraction from this precious day. I have made a conscious choice to make the most of this season by spending more time with loved ones instead of fretting over all the details that truly don't matter. How will you make the most of your time? What really matters most to you....Decorations? Baking? Shopping? Or RELATIONSHIPS?" Wendie Pett

wag your tail, it's wednesday (poor stella)

there's a blizzard outside,
it's snowing and blowing,
the snowplows and blowers,
are going, and going.

oh please may i stay,
inside where it's warm,
i might blow away,
in such a bad storm!

fifth biggest snowfall in MN history - Dec. 11, 2010

a reflection

my heart is the manger
where Jesus will lay
deep in my soul
far beyond christmas day

my life is the monstrance
where Christ is exposed
for others to recognize
the one who arose

my mission is clear
i'm not here to shine
i'm here to reflect
a love that's divine

Snow, snow
come out in the snow
i want to know
if you like snow
do you like it
yes or no?

from the book by Philip D Eastman

p.s.Stella's answer is :

no, no
i don't like snow
it's much too cold
when i have to go
