The Painting: This is another archival piece from 2005. Old pottery and bowls are often handed down in families. This was a still life set up from something in the past...
The Thought: We went to the Symphony last night:
Terry, Crystal and Laurie
My brother was able to get us a Loge Box for Crystal's first symphony.
As always the Dallas Symphony Orchestra puts on one of the best Christmas programs you could imagine. Our favorite piece was the Twelve Days of Christmas using the flair and compositions from some of the greatest composers to date. It was unbelievable.
There is much from the season surrounding you as well. It is not just the snow, jingle bells or presents stacked under the tree, it is the love that warms the heart from the celebration of the birth of the Christ Child. It is the memories from Christmas past. Tomorrow night we will attend the German Service at St Paul United Church of Christ in Dallas. They are known through out Texas for their annual German Service and there is usually not a seat left in the house. For me Silent Night is not Silent Night if it is not sung in German. In fact most of my first memories of Christmas are my Nanie singing to me in German. "Oh Tannebaum, oh Tannebaum..." (Yes Conni, I probably misspelled that one.)
Celebrate in your heart something from a past Christmas season that brought you joy. Share that memory with someone. Pull together all those heart strings into one sweet melody and accept Him into your heart with the joyous strains of heavenly hosts.
“Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:7, 9-10
