Away In A Manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, the little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head

The stars in the sky looked down where he lay, the little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes but little Lord Jesus no crying He makes;

I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky and stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.

Be hear me, Lord Jesus, I ask thee to stay close by me forever, and love me, I pray;

Bless all the dear children in thy tender care, and fit us for Heaven to live with Thee there.

I have quite a few nativity sets but this is one of my favorites. A friend that I used to work with gave it to me one Christmas.

Finally slept good last night. That was a relief. Don't know whats been going wrong with nights lately. I cleaned the back hall closet today and have an overflowing garbage bag of things to send to Teen Challenge. Some just went to the garbage. That has been on my list of "need to do" stuff for a while. The coat closet inside the front door needs it too. That is another day though. It has a laundry basket of toys that most have outgrown. The great grand kids are rarely here so I think they will go into a bag also. Maybe keep a couple of things. There are some old Tinker Toys (really old) and some other things like maybe parts of a Lego set someone left here but the rest is going.

We finally got Amelia moved out from the cows in with Sage and Ditto. She was chasing off the cows from the hay feeder. I hope she isn't mean to the other two mares.

My hand seemed better all day but think I over did a little with it. Its pretty sore this evening again. Every day its a little better most days though so I am hopeful.
