A shop in downtown Harrisonburg has done something I have never seen a business do. For Christmas, they have draped their whole building with sheets of lights. They even covered the windows and the terrace. I took a picture in the day and one at night for you. What an effect! Now I want to drape our whole house in lights! Like or not?

“Belshazzar did what he had promised. He robed Daniel in purple, draped the great gold chain around his neck, and promoted him to third-in-charge in the kingdom.

Hats Off!

We happened to drive by these at the beginning of a blizzard, a lovely surprise. We just barely made it home. And yes, the blowing snow is real. But it did not blow their caps off!

This one is a Christmas Tree made from poinsettias. The total effect being Santa's hat of course. We happened on this one at a Christmas tree contest in a big hotel.

And here is our Anne Marie. Her panda hat is firmly on her head as she is about to go out in the cold.

“This is basically the origin of these customs we have of women wearing head coverings in worship, while men take their hats off. By these symbolic acts, men and women, who far too often butt heads with each other, submit their “heads” to the Head: God.”

Tree Of Animals

Here is the tree at the vet's office. It is a big tree. I took these pictures of the ornaments because they are all so cute, each one has an animal or pet. They told me that someone came in one day and gave them these ornaments in a huge box!

 “So God formed from the dirt of the ground all the animals of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the Man to see what he would name them. Whatever the Man called each living creature, that was its name. The Man named the cattle, named the birds of the air, named the wild animals; but he didn’t find a suitable companion.”

A Visit To The Vet

We had to take the cats to the vet the other day. They always have this huge bulletin board up on the wall with cool things on it, which I will be showing you from time to time. This is what is on it now. Each stocking was made by an office employee!

Here is a little sleigh that was on a table.

Back in the exam room, the cats did not want to come out of their carriers! Here is a glimpse of the room from a cat's eye view. I would not want to come out either!

    My next post will be showing you their Christmas tree and some of the special ornaments!

Bless the beasts and the children
For in this world they have no voice
They have no choice

Light their way
When the darkness surrounds them
Give them love
Let it shine all around them

“God sets out the entire creation as a science classroom, using birds and beasts to teach wisdom.”
