I love this so much. Santa is welcomed into the home of a Jewish family celebrating Hanukkah. We need more of this sort of thing in the world.
Hebrews 13:1-2 Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters. Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!
Much of life is trial and error. We experiment with things until they work. You have to do a lot of digging and researching to make something function the way it should and when you find a solution its really satisfying. Patience is hopefully rewarded when you keep on going.
As we go through life there needs to be hope in the trials we go through. Our suffering is meant to bring hopefully wisdom and some courage. No matter what you are experiencing have hope, have it abundantly. Hope will keep you sane and alive if you want it to. My friends know we are in this existence together and when you have some hope to spare, share it with others.
I’m rarely a cynical person, I try to be positive in many things. However the climate we live in is making us all suspicious and stopping to ask hard questions. We see bad things happening all the time and we have become jaded and see the world for what it’s becoming instead of what it can be. My hope for the future is a return to idealism and dreams without the doubts and negative space.
Right now students are sweating out the final exams of their university/college careers. They will walk across a stage to receive a degree that is the cumulation of years of hard work and sleepless nights. Other people are suffering burns of a certain degree that has changed their lives forever. Crimes are being committed of a certain degree of seriousness that will send someone to prison. The weather is measured in degrees. It seems that the word degree has a lot of uses and purposes depending on situations in life. Degree is also a brand of antiperspirant/deodorant that can keep people from sweating the small stuff or the big stuff.

Tonight was “Elf” night as a part of the holiday movie season. Here are a few favorite quotes from this terrific movie featuring Will Ferrell, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Zooey Deschannel, Ed Asner and Bob Newheart
“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.”
“I planned out our whole day: First, we’ll make snow angels for two hours, and then we’ll go ice skating, and then we’ll eat a whole roll of Toll-House cookie dough as fast as we can, and then to finish, we’ll snuggle.”
“I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly-twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.”
“This place reminds me of Santa’s workshop…except it smells like mushrooms and everyone looks like they want to hurt me.”
“Buddy I hope you find your dad, Thanks Mr. Narwhal”
“I just like to smile; smiling’s my favorite.”
