"Twas The Night Before Jesus Came"

'Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house Not a creature was praying, not one in the house. Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care In hopes that Jesus would not come there. The children were dressing to crawl into bed. Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap. When out of the East there arose such a clatter. I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash! When what to my wondering eyes should appear But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here. With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY! The light of His face made me cover my head It was Jesus! returning just like He had said. And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth, I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself. In the Book of Life which He held in His hand Was written the name of every saved man. He spoke not a word as He searched for my name; When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame. The people whose names had been written with love He gathered to take to His Father above. With those who were ready He rose without a sound. While all the rest were left standing around. I fell to my knees, but it was too late; I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate. I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight; Oh, if only I had been ready tonight. In the words of this poem the meaning is clear; The coming of Jesus is drawing near. There's only one life and when comes the last call We'll find that the Bible was true after all!

Major Cleaning!!!

We cleaned "as a family" today, even my sweetie did ALOT of cleaning up with us! He can be really sweet sometimes. And then there's most of the other times, LOL. Just kidding!

Today one of our Horses had her baby! It is SO cute. I'll post some pictures as soon as I figure out why my camera is not down loading any pictures. One of our stray cats had kittens 2 weeks ago, too. Baby "anything" are so sweet aren't they?!

A very dear friend of ours from Church gave us a dryer tonight, we have been drying them on the clothes line, {or at the laundry mat, which is a bit expensive} for the past, well for the past year and a couple of months. It sure will be nice having a dryer again.

When I have more time I will post what we are hoping is the Lord's will and He will open the doors to soon.

Well have a great night and a wonderful day tomorrow,
