Merry Christmas!

Luke 2:10-12(NKJV)

Then the angel said to them,"Do not be afraid,for behold,I bring you tidings of great joy which will be to all people.
 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior,who is Christ the Lord.
 And this will be a sign to you:You will find a babe in swaddling clothes,lying in a manger."

A few of my favorite Christmas things...

  Warning:This post is going to be very random!

Did that headline scare you?
  I hope not!

Since Christmas is almost here I thought I'd share some of my favorite Christmas things.

    I love watching Christmas movies(who doesn't?). My all time favorite CM are It's a wonderful life
                
    and It's the most wonderful time of the year.
      
           I also love Christmas music.
    My new favorites are Carol of the bells/Sing we now of Christmas by Barrlow girls


 and It's true by Sara Groves


Who doesn't love Christmas trees,Christmas food,and snow?









                                     


While I do enjoy all of these things,the most important thing is to remember  we celebrate Christmas  because of Jesus.
Merry Christmas!

  Northanger Abbey. I read it because I loved watching movies based on JA books.
  2.What is your least favorite JA novel and why?
     Northanger Abbey. Because it was hard to comprehend(I read it at my brother's ball games,so that may be why)

    Mrs.Jennings from Sense and Sensibility.
 4.Which JA villan(ess) do you love to hate?
     Fanny Dashwood and Wickham.
 5.What's your favorite JA quote?
I can't think or find any at this moment:(
6.If you start someone on a JA,which book would you recommend and why?
  I would suggest Emma because the characters are realistic,like able,and the begging captured my attention.
 7.What is your favorite absolute JA film and why?
  It is either Emma 2009,Sense and Sensibility 1995,or Pride and Prejudice 2005,depending on my mood.
 8.If you could authorize a new film adaption of one of JA's novels,which would it be and why?
 It would be hands down Mansfield park,because I don't like the two movie versions of it.
 9.Which JA charcter do you most identify with?
  Elizabeth Bennet because I,like her,am stubborn and sometimes prejudice.
 10.If you could have lunch with JA today what question would you most like to ask her?
 Which character was she most like or where did you get inspiration for stories?
 12.If you could have lunch with any JA charcters todays who would it be and why?

Psalm 8

               O Lord,our Lord how majestic is    your name in all the earth,Who have
          displayed your spleandor above the heavens!
                From the mouth of infants and nursing
          babes you have established strength
               because of your advesaries,to make the
          enemy and the revengeful cease.
               When I consider your heavens,the work
          of your fingers,the moon and the stars which
         you have ordained;
               What is man that you take thought
         and the son of man that you care for him?
           Yet you have made him a little lower than    
        God,and you crown him with glory and
        majesty!
           You make him to rule ove the works of your
        hands;
          You have put all things under his feet,all
        sheep and oxen,and also the beasts of the
        field,the birds of the heavens and the fish
        of the sea,Whatever passes through the
        paths of the seas.
           O Lord,our Lord,how majestic is your
        name in all the earth!
