She saw the angel Gabriel!

I tried to post a 24 second video of the beginning of this 8 minute speech where my talented wife portrayed Mary the Mother of Jesus’s thoughts when 70 years old! My theme does not import videos. Does that mean I should upgrade. I guess If you want to see the video clip you will have to go to Facebook! Hope your Christmas Eve is a special time of celebrating with family/and/or friends!

And 70th Birthday to myself!!! 🙂 Nice to have a birthday on this “Holiday!”

The First Thanksgiving

How many people really know how Thanksgiving began? I would venture to guess that even most Christians can’t tell you the real story of the first Thanksgiving celebration. The modern day version of Thanksgiving was held in 1621 at the Plymouth Plantation. The pilgrims had a harvest feast after the growing season to give praise to God for his blessings. The pilgrims had plenty of things to complain about. Half of the people had died during the harsh winter of starvation or disease. Despite all of this death and disease, the pilgrims were still thankful and grateful for everything they had. During the early days, the Thanksgiving holiday was celebrated at different times in the different colonies. The annual day of Thanksgiving did not get an official date until the Civil War., when it was instituted by Abraham Lincoln

Here is my wife modeling the finished product.   She was the one who had the idea of making the poncho!
