Merry CHRISTmas!

This is a wonderful Christmas message I received from my neighbors, Karen and Brendan,who, I now consider family. 

Though December 25th isn’t the exact time of the birth of our Lord and Savior, it is still important that we set aside a time of the year to remember him.

Without the birth of Jesus our race would be dead, but because “God so loved the world,” (us) He sent His dearest son to buy back life for us. Jesus is the King of Life.

Jesus says;  “To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. “ (John 18:37)

If the casting away of them (the Jews) has brought us opportunity, and if the receiving of them (the Jews) back into favor again is life from the dead (Rom. 11:15) how much more has the King of the Jews brought us. When the entire world of mankind receives Jesus as their King in the Kingdom we all pray for, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on the earth…”

Jesus’ birth into the world and his ransom sacrifice for Father Adam are truly the best gift this world has ever gotten. As the Apostle Paul says, it will be testified in due time.

So when you think of Christmas, thank God that He gave His dearest son to be the hope of the entire world.

just plain perplexing

New computer finally!!-no long distance phone calling and no e-mail - the old one died and I had been unable to communicate for a week! 

I suppose I should write a journal on the horrific year I've had.  But then, I don't really want to remember.  I will tell you the latest but don't want to dwell on it for any length of time.  I am a forward type of person.  I don't recall dates of sadness and cry.  It is behind me and I look forward.  I do give reverence to the past as appropriate but it is what it is and I try to see what I have, not what I have lost or suffered.

I had to put the one blue boy pup to sleep.  He was suffering. I had taken him to the vet with the other pup and showed him questioning what was wrong with him.  An x-ray reveiled an abnormality but it was out of my vets ability to answer so he sent me home waiting for more information from a referral vet that he was going to talk with...but it never got that far for poor Skimo.

 I must be in for something good, since I have had FIVE bad things occur that I have never had in breeding Cardigans before, all in ONE litter.
