Christmas Eve



Joseph and Mary arrive in
Bethlehem,
 but there is no room in
the inn.
 Do you know
 how hard it is to give
birth?
 Imagine that, but without
today's equipment,
no nurses or doctors,
and a piercing cold
little cave, in
which to bring forth
your first born son.
add that to a couple of
cows, a donkey, fatigue
 from traveling and
a nervous husband,
and that's pretty much
what Mary had to
 go through.

Do I answer the knocks on my
 heart and make room for Jesus?

Until the Son of God appear.

O Antiphons: O Wisdom

The O Antiphons are a very old
 part of the Liturgy that recall
the long waiting for the
Savior. Each verse of O Come
 Emmanuel is a diifferent "O".

O come, O Wisdom from on high,
who orders all things mightily,
to us the path of knowledge
show, and teach us in her ways
to go.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

    Sea World
    I went there as a baby, and I don't remember a thing! This time though, we got a Homeschool discount (25% off!), a couple of cool rides, and (wait for it, wait for . . . - excuse me, where's the drumroll?) . . . A swim with the Dolphins!!!! It was so cool! There was eight girls, two dolphins, and two instructors. We were split up into two groups, one with each dolphin. I  was with Tyson; the other was called Cyrus.
    We got them to do jumps, tail-walking, and lots of other fun things!!
    Lots of Fun!!!
