The cyclamen plant, December 4, 2013

(Dec. 4, 2013) — A week and a half ago, I wrote a story about my cyclamen plant, which seemed to have died last summer.

In September, signs of life began to reappear, and a seeming miracle unfolded.

The plant is now just as lovely as it was before it went into dormancy in July.

On November 24, one flower stem had emerged which today is tall and wide open.  Almost from nowhere, two more flowers appeared and are showing color, with the promise of many more to come.

What more proof do we need that much can happen in ten days?

  1. possibly this is the place for…

    Twas the month before Christmas

    When all through our land,

    Not a Christian was praying

    Nor taking a stand.

    Why the PC Police had taken away

    The reason for Christmas – no one could say.

    The children were told by their schools not to sing

    About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.

    It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say

    >>>>>December 25th is just a ‘Holiday’.

    Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit

    Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!

    CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod

    Something was changing, something quite odd!

    Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanza

    In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.

    As Targets were hanging their trees upside down

    At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was no where to be found.

    At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears

    You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.

    Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty

    Are words that were used to intimidate me.

    Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen

    On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!

    At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter

    To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

    And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith

    Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace

    The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded

    The reason for the season, stopped before it started.

    So as you celebrate ‘Winter Break’ under your ‘Dream Tree’

    Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.

    Choose your words carefully, choose what you say

    Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!

    Please, all Christians join together and wish everyone you meet


    Christ is The Reason’ for the Christ-mas Season!

    If you agree please forward, if not, simply delete.

  2. Oh Cyclamen plant, Oh Cyclamen plant
    You are our Christmas Tree
    Oh how happy you must be!
    To be our Christmas Tree.

    Oh Cyclamen plant, Oh Cyclamen plant
    Under Obamacare’s Death Panels
    You surely would’ve died
    But Sharon doesn’t buy into the fake hype
    Doesn’t like the de facto charlatan Obama
    Tells him off to go fly a kite
    And WE ALL AGREE here at the P&E.
