Quote of the Day: Mingle a little folly with your wisdom; a little nonsense now and then is pleasant. – Horace, Roman poet and satirist
Here’s our photographer – lookin’ good in front of and behind the camera lens!
I passed around a card I bought for our sister in mothering multiples who was just diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer. The front says: There is a circle of caring all around… And, inside …and you’re right in the middle. We also passed the Christmas plate for donations to some families in our midst who could use a little Christmas cheer.
And, I’ve spent time at noon during Advent with my pastor/friend and other women who need time to connect during this season. Great discussions, meaningful moments. So glad I have you, Erika!
Bill, facebook friend, is sharing corny jokes during this season. Here’s a sample: Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway. One hat said to the other: ‘You stay here; I’ll go on a head.’
One more: A sign on the lawn at a drug rehab center said: ‘Keep off the Grass.’
I’m drawn to the Light during this Advent season. How are you doing?
Journaling Prompt: Share a fun holiday memory or story from your near or distant past. Or, post a joke!

I really liked your quote, about mixing fun with wisdom. How true it is!
Your group does so much good. I pray your friend with breast cancer kicks this disease. I know you’re all there to support her. Bless you!
Oh I love a corny joke 🙂
I’ll repeat one I’ve run on my blog:
A man walks into a cafe and asks the waitress how much the coffee is.
“It’s $4,” replies the waitress.
“Well how much are the refills?” asks the man.
“They are free,” says the waitress.
“Hmm, well I’ll just take a refill then!”
Mary, I love the light. The talk I gave on Nov. 29, then again this week, before groups of faith women was really about light, and being light to one another. I truly believe that when the angels and saints look down on us, what they see isn’t bodies, but light. The more light we have inside of us, the more brightly we shine. You have a lot of light in you, Mary, so I have no doubt you are one of the more vibrant beings when seen from above. 🙂
Heeehehe, Keep off the Grass…ya crack me up girl! :o)
I love the way your lettin’ your light shine, the pictures are just great. I believe we can see God working in others as they shine that light.
God bless and have an amazing day sweetie!!!
Mary, when you have a chance, I’ve a little something for you at my place.
And, since I read your previous post earlier, I’ve been thinking and really, really hope the sun shines thru for everyone. You’ve been hit with a lot. *sighs*
I have always been drawn to the light–there’s something magical there, isn’t there? Love the quote! 🙂
The scumbag landlords I spent the last three years fighting hurt my belief in the goodness of those around me.
Now, in a new house in the community in which I’ve always wanted to live, I’m regaining the belief and the joy.
There is light in all of us. I am glad I can see that now.
And to Devon, sorry to hear of your bad experiences. Glad you live in a respectful community now.
Merry Christmas, dear Mary!!!!
Merry Christmas , Mary…
hope you are embraced in joy and peace
