It’s not how you say it.
It’s what you say that counts
And the fact that you say it at all.
I wish I didn’t procrastinate.
I wish I did things now.
The hours and days and weeks go by.
And then I wonder how.
Weeks are months.
And months are years.
And time goes by,
so ever dear.
So now a make a commit-ment.
I stick my sword into cement.
I’ve made my mind
I’m done with this
I’m doing this with no remiss.
I’ll do things now.
I won’t regret
Be done will get.
I’m going to prioritize
and do the things
that make me wise.
I’ll keep this up
and get things done,
before I turn into a bum.
This poem came to me when I realized how long I had put off my project to write a poem a day for one week. I know it wasn’t my top priority, but a year? Come on. Anyway, the procrastination poem came pretty easy to me. I really enjoy writing poetry but am a little embarrassed by it. It’s a kind of catharsis for me
Why is Wednesday spelled that way?
This is like no other day.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Fri,
There’s no reason to ask why!
But Wednesday has this funny snare.
Lets take a vote.
I do not play.
I’d rather spell it
This one only took me a year to get to; sheesh. (Writing the poem only took me about four minutes).
This is an entry in my creative exercise to write a poem for each day this week about that day.
We wanted to make sure to convey the true meaning of Christmas in our Christmas cards this year so we chose the following scripture and saying…
Isaiah 9:6 – “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder…
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Eight hundred years before He was born, the Old Testament predicted the Good News of Jesus Christ.
May you enjoy His blessings throughout Christmas and the New Year!

Here are a few other Christmas card ideas we looked at that contain scriptures or that come right from the Bible about Christ’s birth:

Get ready. The e-Cards are coming. You know what I mean; email from a “friend” that wants to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving or a Merry Christmas. Somewhere in that email is a link that says “Click Here to see your wonderful greeting”. And then when you click it, who knows what’s going to happen.
These kinds of emails can carry anything from a Trojan that duplicates the email to everyone in your address book… to a destructive virus that proceeds to wipe out your hard drive. DON’T OPEN THEM.
They can look really innocent and often pique your curiosity. Just remember, if you didn’t expect it, DON’T OPEN IT.
Use real greeting cards. Use the Internet to send them.
