Yes, we saw it!
The Christmas Star!
This picture was taken from our from porch.
Look closely, up in the sky!
Below is a little information about the significance and about God's design.
"Jupiter and Saturn will line up on Dec. 21, so close together that they’ll appear as one bright shining star. Many are referring to it as the “Christmas Star.” It’s the closest the two planets have appeared together in about 800 years, and won’t occur again until 2080.
This conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn may have an even closer tie to the Biblical story of the birth of Jesus Christ than its occurrence so close to Christmas this year. As noted by Johannes Kepler in the 17th century, a similar conjunction occurred in 7 BCE and could be the astronomical origin of the Star of Bethlehem that guided the wise men."

Every year, Kimmy and I get together at her home to stuff stockings!
It's a great way to relax and go over the plans for Christmas.
We always end up laughing about something.
It's a great stress reducer.
Another year of fun and surprises for everyone.
Everyday Banjo and I go for a walk.
Most days are the same but somedays we meet up with other regular walkers. Or we come across something fun or different.
Like apples that have fallen,
that the ducks love to eat.
Banjo just watches them.
Other times it's the different secrecy.
Today on our walk, I came across a "sign".
Neighborhood boys put up this homemade sign.
" Snow Shovelers,
appt. not nessary just call
___-_______ to set up."
How cute is this.
Now we just need some snow.
Merry Christmas !!
and Peace on Earth
"Thanks be to God for his incredible gift!"
