2020 Christmas Music Marathon – Day 27

Not Quite Wordless Wednesday

The bear has been with me for over thirty years and the rocking chair is over seventy years old. When we moved to Texas, in 1984, I got an apartment while my wife and daughter stayed in Tulsa to sell the house and finish out the school year. My wife bought the bear for me and we named him Boomer. He’s been under the tree every year since he came into the family. The rocking chair is from my childhood. I refinished it several years ago and it stays in the living room year ’round.

Boomer and I are Sooner fans and we would really like another National Championship cap. Maybe next year.

2020 Christmas Music Marathon – Day 27

If one looks close enough, Christ can be found in the Old Testament. Isaiah 9:6 declares, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given…” Later, Isaiah 55:6 instructs the reader to seek the Lord while He may be found and call on the Lord while He is near. Jeremiah 29:5 tells us that the Messiah will come from the lineage of David and Matthew 1:1-17 gives us the lineage of Christ that travels through king David. Micah 5:2 reveals the birthplace of the Messiah seven hundred years prior to the event. While we celebrate Christmas annually, scripture says that everyday is made by the Lord and is reason to rejoice (Psalm 118:24). Merry Christmas.

  2. We have an old rocking chair also, the one Grandma Mary had years ago. It’s one of those precious things you keep forever if you can.

    Thank you so much for the beautiful countdown to Christmas that you do each year, i know it is a labor of love, but it is labor nevertheless.

    1. One day the rocking chair will go to the grandson.
      Yes, it is a labor of love and a labor none the less. Still, I think the effort needs to be made to bring the focus of the season back to a manger in Bethlehem and the greatest gift ever given, eternal life through Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Hope your New Year is blessed.
