 a new one for me here -

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!


*Twas the month before Christmas*
*When all through our land,*
*Not a Christian was praying*
*Nor taking a stand.*
*See the PC Police had taken away,*
*The reason for Christmas - no one could say.*
*The children were told by their schools not to sing,*
*About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.*
*It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say*
* December 25th is just a " Holiday ".*
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit*
*Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!*
*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*
*Something was changing, something quite odd! *
*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*
*In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.*
*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*
* At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.*
*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears*
*You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.*
*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty*
*Are words that were used to intimidate me.*
*Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen*
*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !*
*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*
*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.*
*And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith*
; * Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*
*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded*
*The reason for the season, stopped before it started.*
*So as you celebrate "Winter Break" under your "Dream Tree"*
*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*
*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*
*Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS,
Not Happy Holiday !*

this might fit here -


Every single evening
As I'm lying here in bed,

This tiny little Prayer

Keeps running through my head:


God bless all my family

Wherever they may be,

Keep them warm

and safe from harm

For they're so close to me.


And God, there is one more thing

I wish that you could do;

Hope you don't mind me asking,

Please bless my computer too.


Now I know that it's unusual

To Bless a motherboard,

But listen just a second

While I explain it to you, Lord.


You see, that little metal box

Holds more than odds and ends;

Inside those small compartments

Rest so many of my friends.


I know so much about them

By the kindness that they give,

And this little scrap of metal

Takes me in to where they live.


By faith is how I know them

Much the same as you.

We share in what life brings us

And from that our friendships grew.


Please take an extra minute

From your duties up above,

To bless those in my address book

That's filled with so much love.


Wherever else this prayer may reach

To each and every friend,

Bless each e-mail inbox

And each person who hits 'send'.


When you update your Heavenly list

On your own Great CD-ROM,

Bless everyone who says this prayer

Sent up to GOD.com


Amen

Great stuff, Bro. Joe!
 
Of course, we all remember a guy named CLEM wrote the original most famous version of the first posting, above, right!?!?



Ho ho ho!!!     Oooops!!  Anyone see any PC Police?!?  Those words were what got Imus in so much trouble last year, maybe I should be more careful!?!?!   

Everyone remember on Thursday:  You are what you eat!!!

As we begin the Season of Advent, I found this "Reason for the Season" in my readings and thought it fitting for this thread:

From Isaiah 53:5
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his WOUNDS WE ARE HEALED.

#1 Reason for the Season
