Heavenly Blessings on Christmas!

The unthankful heart discovers no mercies...
but let the thankful heart sweep through the day
and, as the magnet finds iron, so it will find,
in any hour, some heavenly blessing!

~Henry Ward Beecher

Of Note: And what's more, a heart lit up with gratitude and love will then emanate the blessings so magnetized. Picture how the world would change if we actually saw the Christ light emanating from each of our hearts. We would then Know. But, even pretending we saw this light in each of our brothers and sisters could change the world overnight. On Christ-mas Day, let's take a minute and give this a try. Just for a minute. Tomorrow we can try two minutes. In sixty days we'd have a whole hour. In 1440 days we would have 24 hours covered. Bet we would not need more than that to see the Christ Light in everyone.

Today's Weather Report: The blizzard which started the night before last has yet to subside. Bet we have the 2 feet that was predicted. Apparently, we have 14 fresh inches since yesterday--and there was already 9 or so yesterday. More is expected. Amazingly, it was raining a little while ago but that was only momentary. Rain. Go figure. One neighbor described it as shoveling wet cement. Misty, our new puppy, is a great co-pilot in the snowplow. When things get too rough, she just puts her head under Jim's elbow. Merry Christmas to all!
