Mele Kalikimaka (or "Merry Christmas!")
In 1998, the "theme" for our Christmas page was
Now, mind you, I don't personify EVERYTHING,
but this theme literally jumped out at me *_*
While we lived in Hawaii,
we noticed that most people "observed" Christmas by
"baking"...in the sun....
I have a special place in my heart for gingerbread men.
Let me explain...
In May of 1995, my sister and I attended
a Mother/Daughter Banquet at our church in Floral City, FL
If you know anything about me,
you know that my Momma is in Heaven;
so a Mother/Daughter Banquet is a rather sentimental event.
That year, I tried to "cope" by making my sister happy...
Love her heart, she appreciates my humor!!!
For dessert, we had bowls of ice cream with
a little gingerbread man 'standing' in each.
Seeing my opportunity, I elbowed my sister;
"Look! How novel, a man with cold feet!"
It was at the end of that month that
my Daniel wrote me for the first time *_*
So, what am I getting at? Well, I'm glad you asked!!
We are told in God's Word to be "fishers of men";
so when I saw this graphic...
What do you think I thought of???
We need to see people as souls;
and now when I see gingerbread men,
I'm reminded of those souls!! I want to be a "collector"!
And this kind of collection is eternal...
you CAN take them with you!!!
