Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails.
I will believe the Hand which never fails,
From seeming evil, worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered:
I trust in Thee.
--Ann Kimmel

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines, the labor of the olive shall fail and the fields shall yield no meat, the flock shall be cut off from the fold and there shall be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:17-18

Vintage Christmas Card

It's going to be a busy day, so this will be a short post, but I did want to share this lovely vintage Christmas card with you. It's not one of mine, but one I found on Pam Vosberg's Pinterest site. It's so charming, I find it irresistable.

Wyatt is having a "guy's night in" and my husband and I are having an overnight at his sister's house. We're all looking forward to the company and the fun.

What do gamers and geeks do when they have a big time? They play computer games like Amnesia and Slender and Containment Breach, they record themselves playing games like Amnesia, Slender, and Containment Breach, and they drink tea like proper gentlemen while doing it. There will probably be a lot of piano playing going on (one of the other guests is also musical), watching videos, and staying up late preaching to the converted about the superiority of the original Star Trek series to all of the subsequent series. They will not be watching the Star Wars Holiday Special which they all agree is the worst film ever made and ought to be renamed The Star Wars Horrible Special.

You gotta love geeks!

Well, before I close, I did want to share a little motto I heard years ago as a guide for Christmas gifts for children. Get them:

Something to wear, something to read,
Something they want, and something they need.  

It's very good advice.

I'll write more tomorrow evening, and thanks for the comments, Heather! I'm glad you're enjoying my largely useless ramblings.
