Buon Natale……….Buon Anno……….

Santa Notte

Santo natal festa dei cuor

Le campane suonano

All’annucio che è nato il Signor

Tutti gli angeli cantano in cor

Il Bambino è nato, Gloria il bambino Gesù

Con il pastor, principi e alla grotta coronno

Santa notte sublime d’amor

Halleluia, è nato il Signor

Redentore del cielo, Noi ti adoriamo Gesù

Another Italian Version

Astro del ciel, Pargol divin,

mite Agnello Redentor!

Tu che i Vati da lungi sognar,

Tu che angeliche voci nunziar,

luce dona alle genti

pace infondi nei cuor!

luce dona alle genti,

pace infondi nei cuor!

Astro del ciel, Pargol divin,

mite Agnello Redentor!

Tu di stirpe regale decor,

Tu virgineo, mistico fior,

luce dona alle genti,

pace infondi nei cuor!

luce dona alle genti,

pace infondi nei cuor!

Astro del ciel, Pargol divin,

mite Agnello Redentor!

Tu disceso a scontare l’error,

Tu sol nato a parlare d’amor,

luce dona alle menti,

pace infondi nei cuor!

luce dona alle genti,

pace infondi nei cuor!

Christmas with Your Cat….Smile of the Night-)*

‘Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse.

‘Cuz the cat had pounced on him
and tore him apart-
Ate his mousey intestines
And chewed up his heart.

Kitty thought he heard sleigh bells,
which made him take pause-
He stopped daintily licking
the blood from his claws.

“Must be Santa” thought Kitty
(that quite clever cat)
‘Cuz nobody else climbs down
the chimney like that.

Indeed it was ol’ Santa,
so jolly and fat
With a load of presents
and all for the cat!

“Wow, the best Christmas ever!”
Kitty thought with a purr,
Then he coughed up a hairball

HAVE YOU SMILED TODAY?????

A NATIVITY STORY for Children ……..

Real Meaning of Christmas by Brian K. Walters

In todays day and time,
it’s easy to lose sight,
of the true meaning of Christmas
and one special night.

When we go shopping,
We say “How much will it cost?”
Then the true meaning of Christmas,
Somehow becomes lost.

Amidst the tinsel, glitter
And ribbons of gold,
We forget about the child,
born on a night so cold.

The children look for Santa
In his big, red sleigh
Never thinking of the baby
Whose bed was made of hay.

In reality when we look into the night sky,
We don’t see a sleigh
But a star, burning bright and high.

A faithful reminder,
Of that night so long ago,
And of the child we call Jesus,
Whose love, the world would know.

Help children learn about the Nativity by selecting a safe, sturdy, attractive, and kid-friendly family Nativity set made from materials such as plastic, fabric, or wood.

There’s more to Christmas than presents, turkeys and trees. The nativity story has delighted children for hundreds of years and, unless it is against your beliefs, it is good to keep up the tradition. There is a good selection of books available to help you, ranging from straight retellings to humorous ones.

Loving God, Help us remember the birth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and worship of the wise men.

Close the door of hate
and open the door of love all over the world.
Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings,
and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.

May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children,
and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.

— Robert Louis Stevenson

What do you get is you cross an elephant with a cat?
Very nervous mice.

What has three tails, twelve legs and can’t see?
Three blind mice.

How do you save a drowning mouse?
Give it mouse to mouse resuscitation.

When does a mouse need an umbrella?
When it’s raining cats and dogs.

Hickory Dickory Dock,
3 mice ran up the clock,
The clock struck one,
The other 2 got away with minor injuries.

Momma mouse was getting food in the kitchen with her baby when the cat pounced in. Snatching up the kid Momma ran for the mousehole but it was obvious she wasn’t going to make it. Finally in desperation she whipped around and shouted “Bark, Bark” at the cat. The cat skidded to a halt and ran away. Momma mouse turned to her baby and said, “You see how important it is to learn a foreign language!”

Body Statistics……really funny stuff…….come see….-)*

It takes your food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.

One human hair can support 3 kg (6 lb).

The average man’s penis is three times the length of his thumb.

Human thighbones are stronger than concrete.

A woman’s heart beats faster than a man’s.

There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.

Women blink twice as often as men.

The average person’s skin weighs twice as much as the brain.

Your body uses 300 muscles to balance itself when you are standing still.

If saliva cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it.

Women reading this will be finished now.

Men who read this are probably still busy measuring their thumbs.

Movie Review…”Rogue”

Wow, what a movie! If you are fond of gators, watch this one! There is a mean gator swimming around Australia waters who does not take too kindly to tourists. He also appears to have taken Psych 101, because he seems to understand the behavior of humans! The cast are a bunch of tourist who have to take a cruise boat, to their final destination ,as the transportation in that part of Australia. They are a bunch of people with thier own personalities and problems! On the way there, they spot a flare thinking someone is in trouble. So, of course, the tour guide has to be an idiot and go see what is happening! I would have just called it in to the proper authorities! Well, big mistake. All kinds of stuff happens because of this stupid decision! You gotta watch. I will end it by saying the GATOR gains a few pounds, if you know what I mean!
