I said a Christmas Prayer for you
Because the season's near.
I didn't ask for riches
But for gifts so much more dear.


I asked for joyful gatherings
With your family all round,
And for carols to inspire you
With their old familiar sound.


I asked for quiet moments
In your heart on Christmas morn,
For a special time to celebrate
The Saviour who was born.


I asked for friends to send their best
That you might know they care;
I asked for peace and love and hope,
And I know God heard my prayer.

Winter is on it's way and bringing Christmas closer every day.
Clay's Christmas in the Heartland will be launching Monday! How thrilling is that!!


Until the delight of the new clack from our beloved phototographers and videographers rolls in I'm using more of my favourite photos from past as well as present.

The poem doesn't really fit a wintery setting, but the moral of the story goes for all seasons.



Thank you for stopping by ~ Enjoy your visit!

Once upon a time,
The colors of the world
Started to quarrel.
All claimed they were the best,
The most important,
The most useful,
The favorite.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


"GREEN" said,
"Clearly I am the most important ...
I am the sign of life and of hope;
I was chosen for grass, trees and leaves,
Without me, all animals would die;
Look over the countryside
And you will see that I am in the majority."

"BLUE" interrupted,
"You only think about the earth,
But consider the sky and the sea ...
It is the water that is the basis of life
And it is drawn up by the clouds from the deep sea;
The sky gives space and peace and serenity,
Without my peace, you would all be nothing."

"YELLOW" chuckled,
"You are all so serious ...
I bring laughter, gaiety, and warmth into the world,
The sun, the moon and the stars are all yellow;
Every time you look at a sunflower,
The whole world starts to smile,
Without me there would be no fun."

"ORANGE" started next to blow her trumpet ...
"I am the color of health and strength,
I may be scarce, but I am precious
For I serve the needs of human life,
I carry the most important vitamins;
Think of carrots, pumpkins, oranges, and mangoes,
I don't hang around all the time,
But when I do, I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset,
My beauty is so striking that no one gives
Another thought to any of you."

"RED" could stand it no longer so he shouted out ...
"I am the ruler of all of you!
I am blood ... life's blood!
I am the color of danger and of bravery,
I am willing to fight for a cause,
I bring fire into the blood;
Without me, the earth would be as empty as the moon,
I am the color of passion and of love,
The red rose, the poinsettia and the poppy."

"PURPLE" rose up to his full height,
He was very tall and spoke with great pomp ...
"I am the color of royalty and power,
Kings, chiefs, and bishops have always chosen me
For I am the sign of authority and wisdom,
People do not question me! They listen and obey."

Finally "INDIGO" spoke,
Much more quietly than all the others,
But with just as much determination ...
"Think of me. I am the color of silence,
You hardly notice me,
But without me you all become superficial;
I represent thought and reflection, twilight and deep water,
You need me for balance and contrast,
For prayer and inner peace."

And so the colors went on boasting,
Each convinced of his or her own superiority.
Their quarreling became louder and louder.
Suddenly there was a startling flash of bright lightning!
Thunder rolled and boomed!
Rain started to pour down relentlessly.
The colors crouched down in fear,
Drawing close to one another for comfort.


In the midst of the clamor, "RAIN" began to speak ...
"You foolish colors, fighting amongst yourselves,
Each trying to dominate the rest;
Don't you know that you were each made
For a special purpose, unique and different?
Join hands with one another and come to me."


Doing as they were told, the colors united and joined hands.
The rain continued,
"From now on, when it rains,
Each of you will stretch across the sky
In a great bow of color as a reminder
That you can all live in peace.
The Rainbow is a sign of hope for tomorrow."

And so, whenever a good rain washes the world, and a Rainbow appears in the sky, let us remember to appreciate one another.
There is something very SPECIAL in each and every one of us. We have all been gifted with the ability to make a DIFFERENCE.

If we can become AWARE of that GIFT, we gain through the STRENGTH of our VISION, the POWER to SHAPE THE FUTURE.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American Friends

May your stuffing be tasty. May your turkey be plump.

May your potatoes ' n gravy have nary a lump.

May your yams be delicious. May your pies take the prize.

May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs.

MAY YOU ALL HAVE A BLESSED THANKSGIVING

What am I thankful for this year?
What blessings come to mind?
My dear friends and relations,
So loving and so kind.


Each time I see the sunrise,
And the beauties of the day,
The unexpected little joys,
I find along the way.


What am I thankful for this year?
The small and furry things,
The hope that keeps me going,
The peace believing brings.


I have so much to thank God for,
I don't know where to start,
I only know He walks with me,
And lives within my heart!

Do you have room for one more poem? I couldn't resist this one Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The turkey shot out of the oven
And rocketed into the air;
It knocked every plate off the table,
And partly demolished a chair.


It ricocheted into a corner,
And burst with a deafening boom;
Then splattered all over the kitchen,
Completely obscuring the room.


It stuck to the walls and the windows,
It totally coated the floor;
There was turkey attached to the ceiling,
Where there'd never been turkey before.


It blanketed every appliance,
It smeared every saucer and bowl;
There wasn't a way I could stop it,
That turkey was out of control.


I scraped and I scrubbed with displeasure,
And thought with chagrin as I mopped,
That I'd never again stuff a turkey,
With popcorn that hadn't been popped!
