How is your Holiday Festive???

Helen and I took the kids to Mike's Farm last night to take part in the hay ride and spend some quality family time together. We waited about 2 1/2 hours for a 30 minute hay ride to see their Christmas lights. It was worth the wait... I maintained my festive Holiday spirit through out the wait. So much that the kids have been asking me.... Dad are you maintaining your Festive, all day today. So amidst all the shopping, cooking, cleaning, decorating and such.... Hope you are maintaining your Holiday Festive and remember why we celebrate.....

BTW... Watching " How the Grinch Stole Christmas on ABC family.... Jim Carey was good in this role.

What does it mean???

Peace on Earth, Good Will toward Men.....

What does it mean to have Peace on Earth. We hear this phrase and many like it during the Christmas season. But have we ever really stopped to think about what it means. It seems a contradiction in terms when you consider that our country has its brave men and women in uniform involved in 2 separate armed conflicts. Peace, is it a place or a state of mind? The more and more I think about it, it has become a state of mind for me. Can I have peace whether things are smooth or whether I am in the midst of a raging storm.

May your state of mind this Christmas season be one of Peace on Earth and in so doing/being may it provoke us to have good will toward all men.

P.S. Make a point to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to all you see instead of Happy Holidays. Its almost like people are afraid to say it anymore.
