Angels We Have Heard On High

Angels we have heard on high sweetly singing o'er the plains

And the mountains if reply echoing their joyous strains

Shepherds why this Jubilee Why your joyeous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be which inspire your heavenly song?

Come to Bethlehem and see Him whose birth the angels sing;

Come adore on bended knee Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

See Him in a manger laid whom the choirs of angels praise;

Mary, Joseph lend your aid while our hearts in love we raise.

Gloria in excelsis Deo! Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Another foggy day around here. It did hit 32 today. That's the warmest in several days. I went to church this morning and about fell on my rear when I went to get out of the car. I caught myself and walked carefully. I had very high heels on my feet and it makes it tough walking on slick surfaces. When I came out it had melted off.

Today was the children's program. They are so funny and cute. The preschoolers sang Happy Birthday to Jesus. They did good once they got them all corralled in one place. The other kids did a little play - Meet Me At the Manger. Very Cute. There are always one or two that crack you up and today was no different.

The angel in the picture is an angel we got in l970 the Christmas after out little girl died. It has always been Coreen's angel and has been on our tree ever since. A reminder of our precious angel that lived five days and five hours.


Oh Come All Ye Faithful

O come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant

O come ye, oh, come ye to Bethlehem

Come and be hold Him born the King of angels

Oh come let us adore Him, oh, come let us adore Him

O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord

Sing choirs of angels, sin in exhultation

O sing all ye citizens of heav'n above.

Glory to God, all glory In the highest

Yes Lord, we greet Thee born this happy morning

Jesus to Thee be all glory giv'n;

Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing

Oh come let us adore Him Oh come let us adore Him O come let us adore Him

Christ the Lord

Its after midnight and the sleep fairy has not come and I can't seem to be able to stay laying down. We had a nice dinner tonight and the auction was nice but they needed a good auctioneer. The one guy had a squeaky voice and I could hardly hear him. I bought a red jean jacket in the silent auction for 2 bucks.

I wanted to go see the eagles tomorrow but Bob has other things so guess we won't. Maybe later in the week.There are about 300 the paper says.

Had a meeting at Karen's early this morning and it was awful driving over there in pea soup or worse fog but I managed. It was better coming home.

So I guess I am just jabbering along, you are keeping me company on the sleepy less night.
