Time in Tahoe


Join Me in S. Lake Tahoe

 

We arrived yesterday at the condo
in S. Lake Tahoe, California.
Great family time and beautiful scenery.

Big job getting ready for this weekend’s wedding.

Our son & daughter-in-law are preparing
the food for the 150 guests
who will join us Saturday
for Faith’s wedding.
Today we shopped.
Look at her planning charts!

Monika’s organizational skills are phenomenal!

Have you ever taken on a task this daunting?

I haven’t!
My son is a great sport!

Here we are at breakfast in our condo this morning.

I hope you had a great day!
Tell me what you did.
I send you my love.

Shopping

Going shopping now
Can be so overwhelming –
Too many choices!

Don’t need anything.
So just why am I in here?
It’s just fun to look!

Do you ever shop when you don’t need anything?

Yet Another Day


This little 3″ x 5″ book titled,
Yet Another Day
was copyrighted in 1905.

My mother-in-law bought it at a flea market for $1.00
in about 1959. I inherited it from her.
This note is in the inside front cover:

The title page tells you the book, written by Rev. J.H. Jowett, M.A.,
is intended to be used as a prayer for every day of the year.

The copyright page gives valuable tips,
as valid today as they were 113 years ago!

Today is December 22nd.
The prayer for today is one I want to share with you.
(I pray I am not breaking copyright laws by sharing this!)

Pray with me, will you?
(And enjoy the beautiful, lyrical language of 113 years ago.)

“Lord of all life, wilt Thou quicken me in the ministry of Thy life-giving Spirit? May no part of my being remain in deadly insensitivity. May I be alive unto God! May all my powers aspire after Thee, as flowers after the sun.”   AMEN!

Bay Area Rapid Transit


Riding the BART

That is our son there

Leaning endearingly on

His wife, Monika.
.

Not a simple ride –

It is a happy BART train

Headed for ‘Frisco

Doesn’t it look like

A day in San Francisco

Would be quite a blast?

Wait for me, dear ones.

I just want to come along –

Oh, for this one day.

 

Christmas shopping in

That beautiful place

Sounds like Paradise.

But maybe I should

Spend my money locally.

That’s what merchants say.

Is your shopping done?

I have barely just begun.

What gift do you want?

Love is Everywhere

GONE

Gone are the robins
Gone is the fall
Gone are the leaves
The wind took them all.
Gone is the turkey
The cranberry, too
But love’s never gone
When I think of you.

 

HERE

Here is December
Here is the tree
Here are the presents
With love wrapped by me.
Here are the bright lights
Here candles glow
Here is the wreath
Here comes the snow!

 

THERE

There are the shoppers
Siftin’ the pickins
From Black Friday frenzy
Peckin’ like chickens.
Plucking a bargain
Spending their dough
There are the shoppers
Where is the glow?

 

EVERYWHERE

Looking for the perfect gift?
The right thing to share?
Don’t look in shopping malls;
You won’t find it there.

Looking for a pocket watch
To help him count the hours?
Looking for the magic fly
To boost his fishing powers?

Looking for a spiffy shirt
To guard him from the cold?
He has clothes enough to spare.
That’s not the trick, I’m told.

Don’t go shop in super stores
For the perfect gift to share;
Just point him to God’s love and yours –
He’ll find it everywhere!

HAVE A BLESSED, LOVE-FILLED DECEMBER!
