A Christmas Tale........

Disclaimer: All characters are fictional any likeness to characters living or dead is coincidental and any resemblance to real events is accidental

Twas the day after Christmas
and all through the house
The kids were all fighting over
the computer mouse

The wrapping was strewn
from here to there
and the children were lounging
without a care

With me in my slippers and
Pa building some crap
All we really wanted was
a long winter's nap

When up from the basement
we heard such a clatter
We rushed to the stairs
to see what was the matter

When what to our wondering
eyes did appear
3 guilty children
all pointing in fear

With a hole in the wall
and wires all I could see
I knew in a moment
It must be the Wii
More rapid than Ninja
and a lot less tame
I yelled and I hollered
and I called them by name

Now Noah and Erin and
Joshua too-
Your driving me crazy
What will I do?

Now dash away, dash away
dash away all
Just give me a moment
before I Bawl

They sprang to their feet
and all gave a wiggle
They flew up the stairs
with just a slight wiggle

I heard them exclaim
as they dove ouuta sight
"Don't worry Mom-
It's Christmas
That makes it alright!"

I hope that you and your family found this season with the blessing of righteousness that was bestowed on us through the gift and life of  Jesus Christ!

Cancer and Vaccines and Food - Oh My

In today's crazy world of information - we may be at a point of too much of a good thing can just plain be too much!!! - In the last month I have attended a "Cancer as a Chronic Disease " conference, received a recall information packet on the rotovirus vaccine and been inundated with emails and magazine articles about what foods I should and should not eat and how I should eat them. (Some suggestions actually promote eating at midnight when the moon is full and the clouds are aligned in a circular pattern.)  Okay, not really but some of you believed it.
What is all this information doing, where is it coming from and what do we need to do about it?  I say step back, take a deep breath, look at what makes sense, educate yourself and then live life.

Practically this is what that might consist of, from the information I have been able to sort through -
  • Natural is always better - limit the amount of chemicals, you eat, sleep and breathe
  • Go outside once in awhile (as long as you don't live near a toxic dump, or a gas well or a concrete plant...)
  • Limit electronic and electrical fields - so as soon as you are done reading this - turn off your computer and go outside
  • Move your LED clock away from your head and take the TV out of your bedroom (this may improve more than your electrical field energy)
  • Grab an apple not a bagel, or a cucumber not a candy bar, or some water not a soda
  • Eat Great food with Good Friends or just Good Food with Great Friends - Stop and Think about what you are eating and are you really that hungry?
  • Play and Dance - it's good for everyone
  • Laugh and then Laugh some more -- need help visit Tim Hawkins at
  • Eliminate toleration - think about the things you do that you hate but do anyway - stop doing all those that you can -
  • Read labels and not just on food - check out positive movie and video review sites like
We do not have to be run by fear and we do not have to have a spreadsheet of our minute by minute activities (although I do recommend this when visiting Disney World).  We just need to do the things we already know are right.  We should spend time developing relationship with God so that we will hear His voice when He is guiding us.  And then being able to hear that voice we should obey.  We need to not fear - knowing that He will give us the wisdom and the strength to do what He is calling us to do.  

 2 Tim 1:6-8
For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, 7for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
 8Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God,
