"Fun" Friday: Track Cleats

I haven't had much time for my blogs lately and didn't come up with a fun Friday brain teaser. So I am going to post a story I posted yesterday on facebook.


So here's kind of a cool story. I took Kayla to counseling (that's not the cool part) and on the way back to school I decided to stop at Catholic Charities because I'd heard they had cleats in all sizes, and I figured she could use a pair to grow into. Well, there were none in her size so we left. When we got outside she asked if we could go back in and look in the cart of $1 shoes. Well, why not? I saw what looked like running shoes on the top of the cart and turned them over to look for a size, and they were track cleats! A size too big for her, but not for long I'm sure. But the cool part (besides getting track cleats for $1) was that there was a Scripture reference written in them. Habakkuk 3:19 which says, "The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights." I told Kayla that must be God's message to her for track this year.

Fun Friday: What's on Your List?

This wasn't supposed to be the Fun Friday post, but since I'm just now finishing it, I'm going to post it on all four blogs as the Fun Friday post, so have some fun with it!



Ever since the movie "Bucket List," people have been making their own lists. I prefer to call them life lists. Some of the popular Life List choices include writing a novel, going on a cruise, learning another language, visiting the Grand Canyon and so on. There is even a website devoted to making your list and following through. It includes thousands of ideas from other members. (You can find that HERE)

Here are some lists that I found online. Not sure who to credit for these.






The end of a year is a good time to reflect on your life. What things have you done from the lists above? What ten things would be on your own Life List? Leave a comment below and we will compile our own list.

Fun Friday: Christmas Riddle

What do you get when you cross a snowman with a vampire?

Here is the answer to last weeks': The letter M, and as Ken S. added, "Never in a thousand years, yet twice in a millennium."

Busy, Busy innkeeper

This is a story I wrote several years ago. It appeared in Clubhouse Jr.


    Busy, busy innkeeper,
Bustling all around,
Long ago in Bethlehem,
Best hotel in town.

     Time to count the people soon,
      Everyone must come.
      Hurried, hungry, tired, sad
      Those are only some.

      First, he thought, I'll air the rooms.
      Then I'll sweep each floor.
      Next I'll make up every bed,
      Time to do some more.

      Hurry, scurry, shake the rug
       Swish-swish, goes the broom
      Look at all those people come
      They will fill each room.

      Come into my nice clean inn
      You who journeyed far,
      Come and rest, lay down your head
      Where the best rooms are.
 
     What a journey you have had,
      Coming down the road,
      Walking, riding, tired, hot
      Some with quite a load.

      People crowding all my rooms.
      People on the floor.
      People people everywhere.
      Can't hold any more.

      Donkey plods into the town           
      Here he comes clip clop
      Bearing weary girl with child
      At the inn they stop.

      Every corner jammed so full.
     No room to be seen
     Wait, the stable is out back.
     Warm and snug and clean.

       Pitch me down some fresh new straw  
       Spread it on the floor
       Go and  get some soft clean cloths
       Close the stable door.
           
        Need a warm bed for the babe
        Now he's on the way
        Empty out this feeding trough
        Fill it up with hay.

         Gentle Bessie's quiet here,
         Just a moo, moo, moo
          Hope the rooster doesn't crow
          Cock a doodle doo.

        Find a special baby here
        Draw near now to see
        King of kings and Lord of all
        Born for you and me.

        I’m so very busy but
       Also glad to see
       Christ the holy Lamb of God
       Born for you and me.
 
      And she gave birth to her firstborn, a son.          
      She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger,

      because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7
