Hello Sally,

Sad to say but Christmas seems to be commercialized when it's not supposed to. Traditions and practices are ok but they shouldn't overshadow the real meaning of the season, right? Papa always reminds just that.

I read you Pink Saturday Christmas memory :-) I think it's sweet. I can see a very disappointed Sally and then come Christmas morning . . . I bet you face just lit up and glowed when you found out your surprise :-)

Mizpah,
Li

Cute, but sad too. What I hate is in some of the kids holiday shows, like Rudolph, they say they'll have to cancel Christmas. Just because santa has a problem and can't deliver the goods.
I have one of those santa worshiping Jesus in the manger and I love it.
Happy Sunday.

Right on Sally, everyone, including me for awhile, seemed to forget the real reason for the Season.
Merry CHRISTmas to you and yours.

He is the reason not only for the season, but for life itself, for all 365 days of the year. We are so blessed that He was born, but we are even more blessed that he died and was resurrected. We should be dancing in the streets for everything He's done for us and continues to do. His name be praised!

XO,

Sheila

We do not always need words to get a point over. As usual, enjoyed your Sunday cartoon.

If it wasn't for Jesus, there would be no Christmas! Thanks for sharing the cartoon, Sally!

Sally that was such a perfect cartoon today... It is so easy to get wrapped up in the commercial side of the holiday that I think people need a gentle reminder from time to time... Thanks & have a blessed Sunday my friend!

O, silly me, Sally..I guess I never thought about anyone else wanting to do it...seee the photo where I have the tape? I used fabric paint in a deep red and just used one of those little dabber, foam thingys. The instructions said use a brush but that was for a smoother fabric. Mine didn't do well on the burlap..so I got out the little dabber and it worked fine. If you do it, just be sure the tape is down securely on your fabric to prevent bleeding...

This is just perfect!
God Bless,

Lisa said...

It is sad, isn't it?

Cherie said...

No Kidding!

Marjorie (Molly) Smith said...

Oh, Sally all I could say was WOW, I cried while I watched it, God's love is so great.

Beautiful pear tree lane said...

Hi Sally, was the cartoon a video? I saw that Molly said she watched something, so I clicked on it, and got a blank screen...wanted to be sure.

The world has always left Christ out of Christmas, they just weren't open about it. People are now just being true to their inner feelings. Christ IS Christmas, whether He is acknowledged or not...they are lost, in the dark. All we can do is declare Merry Christmas, and hope it speaks to someone who might be listening.

There is a new blog meme that you might like, but I can't remember it...you can find it on my blog..Bringing Holy Back to the Holidays.

God bless,
Mary

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Amen to that message, Sally... We certainly (in this country) have become pretty darn secular. It's sad...

Hugs,
Betsy

Cathy said...

I have an award for you at my blog, sweet friend.

Sally, He is the reason for the season. So many seem to forget with all the commercialization that's taken place over the years. Thank you for swinging in and saying hello and leaving such a sweet comment. Pop in any 'ole time.. hugs ~lynne~
