A Little Christmas [Crunch Time] Now!

A Little Christmas [Crunch Time] Now!

Wow! I’m already on the 4th day of my 5 day “weekend” holiday from the office?! Aaagh! That’s just So. Not. Fair. Why is it that our “free time” always flies by so much faster than our work days?!? It’s been an incredibly whirlwind few days for me with so many challenging and rewarding things happening, and my holiday rush has … Continue reading

Dreaming Of A Real Christmas

Dreaming Of A Real Christmas

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were hospital days #46 & #47 respectively, for Daughter A. There’s nothing we wanted more than a “Christmas miracle”. We prayed, and pleaded with God. I dreamed she would suddenly rise from her bed and walk, fully healed and whole, able to come home. When I ‘woke’, we simply prayed … Continue reading

I Pray On Christmas All Our Problems Gonna Be Worked Out

As Mr. MoSop started up the engine and the two of us slowly drove away from the hospital we sunk into a bone-tired and soul-weary silence. I turned on the radio just in time to hear an excited radio personality announcing that “this next song has become a new ‘listener favorite’ here!”.

We were treated with some beautiful sunshine as … Continue reading

Welcome Christmas! Pull Up A Chair

Welcome Christmas! Pull Up A Chair

Hello Christmas! You look so beautiful, and not even a day older, this year! Won’t you please come in and stay awhile? I’m sorry I’ve been rushing around so much lately I haven’t paused to spent more quality time with you. I know you can’t stay long, and your presence always fills my heart and home with such a special feeling! . . . A gift for my readers Continue reading

Carol Of The Bells and Cellos

Carol Of The Bells and Cellos

Confession time. There are a few Christmas songs I don’t particularly care for. Take Carol of The Bells, for instance, which usually scrapes along the edge of my nerves like a dull razor. The song is merciless for any singer with articulation problems, or any listener who prefers their music to stay on pitch. And, don’t even get … Continue reading
