Spiritual Truths‏:   When you are free from the need for an answer, the answer will come, do not force, but relax & let it flow.

Life Problems:   Appreciate what you have before it turns into what you had.

Sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to just stop caring.

            get out your virtual marshmellows while I spin this Xmas yarn

             

            'Twas the night before Christmas & out on the ranch

            The pond was froze over & so was the branch.

            The snow was piled up belly-deep to a mule.

            The kids were all home on vacation from school,

            And happier young folks you never did see-

            Just all sprawled around a-watchin' TV.

            Then suddenly, some time around 8 o'clock,

            There came a surprise that gave them a shock!

            The power went off, the TV went dead!

            When Grandpa came in from out in the shed

            With an armload of wood, the house was all dark.

            "Just what I expected," they heard him remark.

            "Them power line wires must be down from the snow.

            Seems sorter like times on the ranch long ago."

            "I'll hunt up some candles," said Mom.  "With their light,

            And the fireplace, I reckon we'll make out all right."

            The teen-agers all seemed enveloped in gloom.

            Then Grandpa came back from a trip to his room,

            Uncased his old fiddle & started to play

            That old Christmas song about bells on a sleigh.

            Mom started to sing, & 1st thing they knew

            Both Pop & the kids were all singing it, too.

            They sang Christmas carols, they sang "Holy Night,"

            Their eyes all a-shine in the ruddy firelight.

            They played some charades Mom recalled from her youth,

            And Pop read a passage from God's Book of Truth.

            They stayed up till midnight-and, would you believe,

            The youngsters agreed 'twas a fine Christmas Eve.

            Grandpa rose early, some time before dawn;

            And when the kids wakened, the power was on..

            "The power company sure got the line repaired quick,"
            Said Grandpa - & no one suspected his trick.

            Last night, for the sake of some old-fashioned fun,
            He had pulled the main switch - the old Son-of-a-Gun

                      He had pulled the main switch - the old Son-of-a-Gun

                      Twas The Night Before Christmas (Texas Style)

                      'Twas the night before Christmas, in Texas, you know. 
                      Way out on the prairie, without any snow.
                      Asleep in their cabin, were Buddy and Sue,
                      A dreamin' of Christmas, like me and you.
                       
                      Not stockings, but boots, at the foot of their bed,
                      For this was Texas, what more need be said,
                      When all of a sudden, from out of the still night,
                      There came such a ruckus, it gave me a fright.
                       
                      And I saw 'cross the prairie, like a shot from a gun,
                      A loaded up buckboard, come on at a run,
                      The driver was "Geein" and "Hawin", with a will,
                      The horses (not reindeer) he drove with such skill.
                       
                      "Come on there Buck, Poncho, & Prince, to the right,
                      There'll be plenty of travelin' for you all tonight."
                      The driver in Levi's and a shirt that was red,
                      Had a ten-gallon Stetson on top of his head.
                       
                      As he stepped from the buckboard, he was really a sight,
                      With his beard and moustache, so curly and white.
                      As he burst in the cabin, the children awoke,
                      And were so astonished, that neither one spoke.
                       
                      And he filled up their boots with such presents galore,
                      That neither could think of a single thing more.
                      When Buddy recovered the use of his jaws,
                      He asked in a whisper, "Are you really Santa Claus?"
                       
                      "Am I the real Santa? Well, what do you think?"
                      And he smiled as he gave a mysterious wink.
                      Then he leaped in his buckboard, and called back in his drawl,
                      "To all the children in Texas, Merry Christmas, You-all"

                            Twas The Night Before Christmas (Texas Style)

                            'Twas the night before Christmas, in Texas, you know. 
                            Way out on the prairie, without any snow.
                            Asleep in their cabin, were Buddy and Sue,
                            A dreamin' of Christmas, like me and you.
                             
                            Not stockings, but boots, at the foot of their bed,
                            For this was Texas, what more need be said,
                            When all of a sudden, from out of the still night,
                            There came such a ruckus, it gave me a fright.
                             
                            And I saw 'cross the prairie, like a shot from a gun,
                            A loaded up buckboard, come on at a run,
                            The driver was "Geein" and "Hawin", with a will,
                            The horses (not reindeer) he drove with such skill.
                             
                            "Come on there Buck, Poncho, & Prince, to the right,
                            There'll be plenty of travelin' for you all tonight."
                            The driver in Levi's and a shirt that was red,
                            Had a ten-gallon Stetson on top of his head.
                             
                            As he stepped from the buckboard, he was really a sight,
                            With his beard and moustache, so curly and white.
                            As he burst in the cabin, the children awoke,
                            And were so astonished, that neither one spoke.
                             
                            And he filled up their boots with such presents galore,
                            That neither could think of a single thing more.
                            When Buddy recovered the use of his jaws,
                            He asked in a whisper, "Are you really Santa Claus?"
                             
                            "Am I the real Santa? Well, what do you think?"
                            And he smiled as he gave a mysterious wink.
                            Then he leaped in his buckboard, and called back in his drawl,
                            "To all the children in Texas, Merry Christmas, You-all"

                              May the curse of William Wallace be lifted from ye this Christmas Season.
