~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"If you hear a different drummer, take a chance. The road you choose to travel means the difference in the dance." - Daniel Morgan

By Henry B. Knox

He was a humble workman
With the tools with which he wrought
And he built a common stable,
Or so it was, he thought!

And he fashioned there a manger
Where the cattle could be fed,
Never thinking that the Savior
Would pillow there His head.

He had only built a stable
With a manger in the stall,
Yet it cradled there the Christ-child,
Who is King and Lord of all!

So although our task be humble,
Let us work each day with care;
For we may not know God's purpose,
Or why He placed us there.

Point to ponder:

Christmas is weird. What other time of the year do you sit in front of a dead tree and eat candy out of your socks?

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2,000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2,000-step process."
