Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

The Reason

Isaiah 9:6 - old testament
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace

Luke 2:11 - new testament
For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, 
who is Christ the Lord.

With all the decorating, shopping, gift giving, baking and celebrating of Christmas let's stop and think about Jesus which is the reason for the season. : )

We had a nice dinner at The Corner Stable last night.  They are known for their crab cakes and ribs so we ordered a meal that had both things and shared it.  There was a lot of food and in that one order and i can't imagine anyone eating it all alone.
The crab cakes were very good.  Lots of crab meat and just enough filler to hold them together.
The ribs were okay, but i've had better.  I like ribs best at Long Horn.
We hardly ever get a dessert but decided to get some Bread Pudding to try and shared it.  We didn't care for it.  It was more like a cake and very dense.
The bottom line was that it was okay.  I'd go back again for the crab cakes or to try something different.

I walked around the lake this morning.  It was 27 degrees again.  There was a mist over the lake which made things look dream like.  Quite a few people out walking and running.  I couldn't believe i saw yet another person running in shorts.  Almost every day i see someone in shorts on these cold mornings.
I only walked 5.2 miles.  Had to get home to give myself time to get ready for church and i wanted to make Ken and i French toast for breakfast.  I found a dime and a penny.

Have a great Sunday.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone  : )
I will honor Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
~ Charles Dickens
