When I was a seeker
I sought both night and day
I asked the Lord to help me
and he showed me the way....
Tonight I was a seeker. I was seeking my Christmas Tree stand and I had no idea where I had stashed it a mere 11 months ago. I sought high and low, over laundry piles and under spare hangers and blankets. It occurred to me, while I was seeking, that it was no wonder the Kings weren't exactly on time to the Bethlehem Birthday Bash. They were probably looking for the stuff they needed: pieces of gold, a Myrrh traveling caddy, a fistful of Frankincense and a couple bags of camel chow. Suddenly I didn't feel so bad that it took me awhile to find my well-stored stand. I was in pretty good company.
Getting a tree, getting it inside and in the stand and watered is definitely a step in the holiday direction. The cats are pretty happy to have something new and outsidey to sniff. I'm happy that the tree hasn't fallen over yet, and it has a stand to stand in. On? Tomorrow I'll see what decorations I can find and see if we can't get this show on the road.
I bet the kings said that too.
Generally I like ethnic nativity sets,
but I don't know about this one.
The main guy looks a bit like the Frito Bandito,
and what....did he EAT THEM?
Please Please Please Please tell me
they all arrived on a Fischer-Price Bus.
Camel, I don't know who you think you're fooling.
There is a TSA agent ready to
"make your acquaintance."
Toilet paper tube nativity set.
I'm not sure if it's for when you're flushed with excitement
or for when you don't give a crap.
The expression on the woman's face is priceless.
I'm not sure what I like the best: The jazz hands,
or the "Oh Lord, WHY ME?" body posture.
She's probably the one that told the Kings to take a left
Well, Rubber Ducky is THE ONE.
Not sure I can explain the duck on the left that has the pox.
Nativity Set or nine-pin bowling figurines?
You make the call.
HEY! EVEN PIRATES GOT RELIGION.
Of course, I'm concerned about the guy on the left
who looks like he's in the middle of a hold-up.
I might really love this.
Those are the grooviest kings ever.
