It’s Christmas! And all the stockings are hung on the chimney with care in hopes that Santa Claus soon will be here! I love hearing that story – I grew up every Christmas Eve, my uncle would read Twas ‘The Night Before Christmas‘ with all of us gathered around, waiting for Santa to hurry up and come, then we got to open presents from him to get Christmas started! You might laugh, but my brother and I will sing along to Hilary Duff and Lil’ Romeo’s (rap) song to ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_GPF3elJHY) – I love it and it makes me so proud that he knows that song and sings it with me:) I’m sorry but, he just is a great brother and I love him, am so thankful for him and just wish he was here with me and others who love him so much and think so much of him, this Christmas. He just needs to believe in himself and so do you and so do I:) So come on over and lets dance and sing and get some Christmas Cookies ready, because you know what Santa loves….?
I don’t know about you but I hate (okay that’s pretty strong, but I do!) that saying ‘sticks and stones may break my bones but words never hurt me.’ As if!! Words can be the most damaging to any mind, body, heart and spirit! Words you speak to others, about others or especially words you speak to yourself, about yourself are very damaging. Yourself listens, so speak kindly – ‘Pleasant words are like a honeycomb-Sweet to the soul and Healing to the bones!‘ (Proverbs 16:24) and treat yourself and someone else to Summie’s Yummies Cakies!:)
