~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

He who receives a good turn should never forget it; he who does one should never remember it. - Author Unknown

Subjects: Kindness


Lyrics by Mark Lowry, Music by Buddy Greene

Mary, did you know that your baby boy
will one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy
has come to make you new;
This child that you delivered
will soon deliver you?

Mary, did you know that your baby boy
will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
will calm a storm with His hand?
Did you know that your baby boy
has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little baby,
you've kissed the face of God?

The blind will see,
The deaf will hear
The dead will live again.
The lame will leap,
The dumb will speak
The praises of the Lamb.

Mary, did you know that your baby boy
is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy
is Heaven's perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you're holding
is The Great I Am?

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


You're family automatically heads for the table every time they hear a fire siren.

Your kids know what "peas porridge in a pot nine days old" tastes like.

Your son goes outside to make mud pies, the rest of the family grabs forks and follows him.

Your kids' favorite drink is Alka-Seltzer.

You have to buy 25 pounds of dog food twice a week for your toy poodle.

Your kids got even with the neighborhood bully by inviting him over for dinner.

Your kids got suspended from school for trying to smuggle toxic waste in their lunch bags.

Your husband refers to the smoke detector as the over timer.

No matter what you do to it, the gravy still turns bright purple.

You burned the house down trying to make jelly.

A woman goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is written. The obit editor informs her that the fee for the obituary is 50 cents a word.

She pauses, reflects and then says, "Well then, let it read, 'Fred Brown died.'"

Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor tells her that there is a seven word minimum for all obituaries.

Only a little flustered, she thinks things over and in a few seconds says, "In that case, let it read, 'Fred Brown died: 1983 Pick-up for sale."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

December's Generous Geminids

Meteors, meteors, meteors! Having looked forward to both a rare Giacobinid storm on October 8th and the Leonids in November, it might seem hard to get excited about December's same-as-ever Geminid shower, which is due to peak on the night of December 1314. Besides, for the Northern Hemisphere observers favored by the Geminids, mid-December is a mighty cold time for lying on one's back at night staring up at the sky.

But experienced meteor watchers know better; indeed, many of them favor the Geminids over August's better-known Perseids as the year's most satisfying shower. And for good reason. The shower's shooting stars radiate from a point (at 7h30m, +33, near Castor) that is nearly as far from the Sun as one can get in mid-December. As a result, the radiant rises to a respectable elevation only a few hours after sundown and remains high for the rest of the night, crossing the zenith around 2 a.m. (for observers at midnorthern latitudes, that is). This means you can see the shower at a reasonably convenient hour any time after about 10 p.m.
