    Several years ago, when I first came down to take care of my mom, there were several medical disasters which precluded buying an actual Christmas tree. At the last minute, family and I decided that medical disasters were not a good excuse for canceling Christmas and we decided to gather here despite the short notice.

    But what to do about a Christmas tree? The tree was always a big deal and something we HAD to have. Before everyone got here, I played my favorite carols for inspiration. And, in the true spirit of Christmas Miracles, I came up with The Christmas Twig. Trimmings from the very beautiful Crepe Myrtles on the property. This year it was rather large – but still beautiful in its own way.

    The Bible reading today at biblegateway.com is the first two verses of Psalm 103. Here’s the full chapter from a new translation called “The Voice”….

    A song of David.
    1 O my soul, come, praise the Eternal
    with all that is in meβ€”body, emotions, mind, and willβ€”every part of who I amβ€”
    praise His holy name.
    2 O my soul, come, praise the Eternal;
    sing a song from a grateful heart;
    sing and never forget all the good He has done.
    3 Despite all your many offenses, He forgives and releases you.
    More than any doctor, He heals your diseases.
    4 He reaches deep into the pit to deliver you from death.
    He crowns you with unfailing love and compassion like a king.
    5 When your soul is famished and withering,
    He fills you with good and beautiful things, satisfying you as long as you live.
    He makes you strong like an eagle, restoring your youth.
    6 When people are crushed, wronged, enslaved, raped, murdered,
    the Eternal is just;
    He makes the wrongs right.
    7 He showed Moses His ways;
    He allowed His people Israel to see His wonders and acts of power.
    8 The Eternal is compassionate and merciful.
    When we cross all the lines, He is patient with us.
    When we struggle against Him, He lovingly stays with usβ€”changing, convicting, prodding;
    9 He will not constantly criticize,
    nor will He hold a grudge forever.
    10 Thankfully, God does not punish us for our sins and depravity as we deserve.
    In His mercy, He tempers justice with peace.
    11 Measure how high heaven is above the earth;
    God’s wide, loving, kind heart is greater for those who revere Him.
    12 You see, God takes all our crimesβ€”our seemingly inexhaustible sinsβ€”and removes them.
    As far as east is from the west, He removes them from us.
    13 An earthly father expresses love for his children;
    it is no different with our heavenly Father;
    The Eternal shows His love for those who revere Him.
    14 For He knows what we are made of;
    He knows our frame is frail, and He remembers we came from dust.
    15 The children of Adam are like grass;
    their days are few;
    they flourish for a time like flowers in a meadow.
    16 As the wind blows over the field and the bloom is gone,
    it doesn’t take much to blow us out of the memory of that place.
    17 But the unfailing love of the Eternal is always and eternal
    for those who reverently run after Him.
    He extends His justice on and on to future generations,
    18 To those who will keep His bond of love
    and remember to walk in the guidance of His commands.
    19 The Eternal has established His throne up in the heavens.
    He rules over every seen and unseen realm and creature.
    20 Adore Him! Give Him praise, you heavenly messengers,
    you powerful creatures who listen to
    and act on His every word.
    21 Give praise to the Eternal, all armies of heavenβ€”
    you servants who stand ready to do His will.
    22 Give praise to the Eternal, all that He has made
    in all corners of His creation.
    O my soul, come, praise the Eternal!

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

  8. Rich Higgins was fired for writing this memo, by Deep State Slaveowner H.R. (because of course his first name is H.R. {Hi, SJWs!}) McMaster (Becuase of course his name has the word “Master” in it. He’s an SJW. They are our masters.)

    I wonder if either of these guys has dogs named Zeus and Apollo, or a private investigator with a Detroit Tigers cap and a sweet mustache.
