Christmas Decor and Santa's Sleigh in the sky

I love to see the Christmas decorations.
 I was so stunned to see what looked like Santa's Sleigh last night
 that I didn't take the picture until it was going away from me.
My daughter had seen it the night before going across our sky.
He's scoping out who's naughty and nice!
The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.  Aldous Huxley

OBC Birthdays and Anniversary . . . Cloudless sky and a trail

This is what 50 years of marriage looks like. The couple in the back.
Elsa and Ron Noble. Truly beautiful people.
Their were also 3 Birthdays in the church.
The 2 birthday gals: Marina and Jaylin; and Jonathan
 Remember those clouds Friday? Here's today. . . Cloudless.
 Exception:  A plane trail.
You can’t reach for anything new if your hands are still full of yesterday’s junk. (Regret, hurt, guilt, fear, anger, hate, etc.)

Clouds and more Clouds and Sunset Friday. .. . Moon today

We lost a dear friend yesterday and he was making ripples in the sky.
 Looks like wings to me.
 Reminds me of snow, however, this is clouds.
 Sunset was amazing through those clouds.
 Looking East, these clouds had a plane flying by.
 Today there is a stray cloud with the moon.
 Waning Gibbous Moon 58 percent full.
So true, I will miss my friend so much. . .he was a giver from the heart.
Remember when you leave this earth, you can take nothing that you have received only what you HAVE GIVEN: A heart enriched by honest service, Love, Sacrifice and Courage. St. Francis of Assisi

Clouds, Blue Sky, Sun and Hawk

Clouds all over the sky.
 Some chunky. . .
 Some wispy. . .
 Some with a Hawk.
 His closeup.
 The sun is out. . .and those clouds are wispy too.
I’ve never found time spent amongst nature to be a waste of time.

Clouds, Sunshine, Cold. . . .and Squirrel

Yesterday's clouds.. ..
 . . . and Blue Sky
 Bright sunshine with temps in the 50s and 5-10 mph wind a.m.
 Squirrel from a few days ago.
   Just to add warmth to the blog.
Why do we close our eyes when we pray, cry, kiss or dream? Because the most beautiful things in life are not seen but felt by the heart. ~ Denzel Washington

First Baptist Church Luncheon

My girlfriend and I attend a luncheon at the FBC once a month.
Very pretty tree. . . the cross on the screen in background (on both sides)
 Theme: Grandma got run over by a reindeer. . . posing so cute.
 Julie Boyd, ventriloquist was moving grandma all around.
No, this is not the grandma that got run over by the reindeer.

We also sang Christmas and religious Carols and songs.  Very joyful and Christian influence.
I’m stronger because I had to be. I’m smarter because of my mistakes. I’m happier because I have overcome the sadness I’ve known and I’m wiser because I have learned from my life.
