Not a good day

I should be sitting here now with a sore mouth after my op this morning but I had to cancel my appointment. The dental surgery I was going to is over an hours drive away and I was all ready to leave this morning then couldn't find my keys. To make a long story (with lots of swear words) short, Simon had gone off to work iwth my keys in his coat pocket, hence I had no car keys. So had to cancel my appointment and now can't be seen until January. Just hope I don't get another abscess before then. Not happy at all and especially mad at my husband who didn't seem to care less that he had my car keys. It's really ruined my whole day and now I feel depressed and have a massive headache. Got nothing at all done today.

So instead of boring you with my depressing day I'll leave you with this which a friend e-mailed to me this morning:

With 7 weeks before Christmas REMEMBER:

Jesus is Better than Santa

Santa lives at the North Pole.

JESUS is everywhere.

Santa rides in a sleigh

JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.

Santa comes but once a year

JESUS is an ever present help.

Santa fills your stockings with goodies

JESUS supplies all your needs.

Santa comes down your chimney uninvited

JESUS stands at your door and knocks.. and then enters
your heart.

You have to stand in line to see Santa

JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.

Santa lets you sit on his lap

JESUS lets you rest in His arms.

Santa doesn't know your name, all he can say is "Hi
little boy or girl, What's your name?"

JESUS knew our name before we did. Not only does He know
our name, He knows our address too. He knows our history and future and He
even knows how many hairs are on our heads.

Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly

JESUS has a heart full of love.

All Santa can offer is HO HO HO

JESUS offers health, help and hope.

Santa says "You better not cry"

JESUS says "Cast all your cares on me for I care for you.

Santa's little helpers make toys

JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs
broken homes and builds mansions.

Santa may make you chuckle but

JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.

While Santa puts gifts under your tree

JESUS became our gift and died on the tree.

It's obvious there is really no comparison.

We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about.

We need to put Christ back in Christmas.

Jesus is still the reason for the season.

May the Lord Bless and Watch over you and your loved ones
this Christmas 2008

And may He prosper and bless the work of your hands in
the New Year.

God bless you all

That's so beautiful. Sometimes, we are so caught up with the season that we forgot the true meaning of Christmas. Thanks for the reminder.
