Merry Christmas and happy new year card

 Merry Christmas and happy new year card: “One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple.”

"O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, You truly are a beauty. I used to love to put you up, Now it's a dreaded duty. Lugging you out from storage Gets more strenuous each year, And assembling all your branchy parts Does not fill me with cheer. Then each and every little stem I tediously unflatten. Your artificial symmetry, It doesn't...just...happen. Next challenge is your tree lights, Which I always have to wrangle. No matter how I've coiled them, They unwind in a tangle. A few choice words escape me As I clear the final knot, Then turn to find the other end Has formed another clot. I string them from your branches, Draping with the greatest care, To find that I've run out of lights, Your bottom third still bare. After some more botched attempts They're artfully arranged. Your lights are nice and even Though I'm feeling quite deranged. These days the decorating Doesn't hold the same appeal. Now that the kids are all grown up, It's left for me to deal. I miss the days when they were young, We'd trim your boughs together. With Christmas carols playing, They are memories I treasure. Your ornaments now look just right From every viewing angle, But at your back against the wall, The not so nice ones dangle. At long last the job is done. It's taken me all day; Too worn out to appreciate Your beautiful display. On Christmas Day you play your part, All twinkling in resplendence, With family all gathered round And opening their presents. O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, A sight extraordinary; Must steel myself to pack you up, It's almost February."

“You are, after all, what you think. Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions.”

“I'm unpredictable, I never know where I'm going until I get there, I'm so random, I'm always growing, learning, changing, I'm never the same person twice. But one thing you can be sure of about me; is I will always do exactly what I want to do.”
