God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Kim Hill and Phil Keaggy

Phil Keagy is one of my favorite musicians ... if you get a chance to see him in concert he's such a lovely person..i think He & Paul McCartney were seperated at birth...they sound so much alike...
 to me anyways.
i hope that
Sir Paul
knows Jesus.
This is my prayer for all the peoples of the world

To Know that:


is the reason we celebrate



1Corinthians 9:19-23
"19)Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible.
20) To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews.
To those under the law  I became like one under the law
[though I myself am not under the law],
so as to win those under the law.
21) To those not having the law I became like one not having the law
(though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law),
so as to win those not having the law.
22) To the weak I became weak, to win the weak.
I have become all things to all men
so that by all possible means I might save some.
I do all this for the sake of the gospel,
that I may share in its blessings."


This is why Hubbee & i  join in the celebration of Christmas,
knowing full well the controversies concerning the date of Christs birth
and the pagan ritual surrounding some of the symbolism we share at this time.

Being a Christian by word and by deed
is a tough road to travel... and as we know it's easy to fall off the path when we're not busy leaping off in persuit of all the worlds shiney new objects...or running in horror from the visions of 
 spiritual warfare.

All this to say:
 "I urge, then, first of all,
 that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made
for everyone-
for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior,
who wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."
1Timothy 2:1-4

 Merry Christmas to:
 Grace & your new Husband Jamie
Love & Blessings from
Mr. & Mrs. 'B'

Feliz Navidad

and on earth peace to men on

We Love You!

Paul says in
1 Corinthians 9: 22,23
(22) ......
"I have
all things to all men
so that by all possible means
I might save some.
(23)I do all this
for the sake of the gospel,
that I may
in its blessings."

 blue with flu
Every fall with the return of the "Snow-birds" our tiny haven is invaded by the flu.
Don't get me wrong
i have nothing against our returning flock of Humanity...

It's just the 'Stuff' they bring with them from all ends of this
Grand Nation and beyond;
Canada even.

It doesn't seem to matter if we all get the flu shot in anticipation of this event,
the mix of so many strains of virus gets the better of us here.
i'm not an epidemiologist so i don't know or understand all the intricacies of such things
only that, 
i've noticed,
 since we've been here
 we and others around us seem to be no match for the

Perhaps we should call this
Snow-BUG season.

Happy Holidays indeed.
now i sound like the Grinch.
cause i kinda feel like
i think i may have Grinched about this last year Too!
but feel too crummy to go looking.
jail-bird kitty
forgive me please.

At least this year i didn't get sick right away...
saved it for
Christmas i did.

All i want for Christmas is

my Hubby's sweet Smile.
Poor Dear
He's got it worse i think.
the bug
Grumpy wife.

Consider it
pure joy,
my brothers
 whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your faith
Perseverance must finish it's work
so that
you may be mature and complete,
not lacking
James 1:2,3,4

This is one of our many Bird-houses...
Yet to be inhabited
by any of our desert dwelling Avian friends.

Apparently the shimmying wings are a deterrent.

In a brave moment

(or should i say: ridiculous spurt of energy?)

i decided to warm the house by baking some Quick-bread.

Apparently i misread the Temp.
and set the oven way too low.

In a former life i KNEW this was questionable...
In this present escapade(?)
i knew
too little
 too late.

They call THIS
i call it
Baked Bricks

& NO!
i'm too horrified to take a picture
So you can't see them.

On the bright side
i have often thought it would be fun to make an Adobe brick wall....
.. maybe..
an edible
Bird Brick wall..
{maybe this will attract the birds?}
What's that they say about being a 'Brick shy of a load' ??
that's me today furr sure!
(but the house Iz warm:))

He humbled you, causing you to hunger
 and then feeding you with manna,
which neither you nor your fathers had known,
to teach you that
man does not live on bread alone
but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.
Dueteronomy 8:3
