Thank God we just keep going, and going, and going

Tree, garland, rugs, pillows, dishes, glasses, linens.
Shop, select, buy, wrap, send, give.
Rest awhile.
Mix, roll, cut, drop, bake, cool, clean, store.
Take a break.
Pack, drive, visit, see, hear, laugh, enjoy.
Time for a Nap.
Cook, serve, pray, eat, talk, laugh some more.
Relax awhile.
I'm loving it!!

The time will soon be here to celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Contemplate, meditate, be thankful.

We are off to Michigan for the weekend, then back for the final countdown to God's Birthday.

One of my favorite Christmas tunes is "How should a King come", I would put it here for you to hear, but can't get around the license restrictions. However, it can be heard at this link.

"How should a King come."

Even a child knows the answer of course,
In a coach of gold with a pure white horse.
In the beautiful city in the prime of the day,
And the trumpets should cry and the crowds make way.
And the flags fly high in the morning sun,
And the people all cheer for the sovereign one.
And everyone knows that's the way that it's done.
That's the way that a King should come.

How should a King come.
Even a commoner understands,
He should come for His treasures,
And His houses and lands.
He should dine upon summer strawberries and milk,
And sleep upon bedclothes of satin and silk.
And high on a hill His castle should glow,
With the lights of the city like jewels below.
And everyone knows that's the way that it's done,
That's the way that a King should come.

How should a King come.
On a star filled night into Bethlehem,
Rode a weary woman and a worried man.
And the only sound in the cobblestone street,
Was the shuffle and the ring of their donkey's feet.
And a King lay hid in a virgin's womb,
And there were no crowds to see Him come.
At last in a barn in a manger of hay,
He came and God incarnate lay.

And the angels cried "Glory,Glory to God".
Earth was silent so heaven rang,
"Glory, Glory to God."
Men were dumb so the angels sang,
"Glory, Glory to God",
Peace on earth good will to men,
"Glory, Glory to God".
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
"Glory to God".
"Glory in the Highest"
"Glory to God".
"Glory in the Highest"

(Carol and Jimmy Owens)

Sorry folks no letterboxing tales today. But I do have one nearly ready to plant. Stay tuned, maybe next week.

Thanks a great deal for the song "How should a King come". I have searched for it for 2 years but could not find it because I only remembered one phrase out of the whole song " Glory, glory to God, Christ is born in Bethlehem".
And for some reason, most Christmas carol collections don't include this wonderful song.
Thanks again.
