Early Monday Morning Snow

This morning the snow had stopped and this was the way things looked.

This was all soft snow...not ice. The winds blew most of the snow out of the trees by noon. Now we are waiting for warm temps to melt the rest.

Noon Time Snow

We got up to snow this morning. This was how it looked at noon.

It snowed all day and even after dark. It will not get out of the 20's tonight.

Jesus Is Born

Luke 2: 1-20 The Story of Christ's Birth

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem (because he was of the house and lineage of David), to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord come upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, "Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger." And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another: "Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this king which is to come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us." And they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

The Merry-Go-Round

That's what I call it when you begin new adventures with doctors. They find a reason to keep you coming back.

My husband is now on the Merry-Go-Round. After the heart surgery, the visits to the doctors increased. See your family doctor. See your Cardiologist. See your Surgeon. Back to the family doctor for several little visits. Surgeon turns him loose. Exercise picks him up. Exercise three times a week for ten weeks. Graduation. PT turns him loose. Pain in the kidney. ER treats for kidney stone. Wants to make an appointment for Urologist. Husband says no. Family doctor has another concern. THS low. Seeing a new doctor tomorrow. Wonder what she will want him to do next? He's wanting to get off the Merry-Go-Round.

A sister-in-law has just got on the Merry-Go-Round. She had colon cancer surgery and they found a spot on her liver. She's had scans and now they have plans for the "port" and the chemo to start Jan 5th. Her husband, husband's brother, has been riding the Merry-Go-Round all this year with his own problems.

Let's hope enough of us can stay well and off the Merry-Go-Round to be able to help those who are riding now.
