Chanukah and Christmas!

Please watch or listen Sweet Friends…………..

Camouflage And Christmas Lights by Rodney Carrington

Another Year has come and gone,
And I’m still here holdin’ on,
To this rifle and a picture of my kids,
They’re sayin’ its a holiday,
Sure as hell don’t feel that way,
I don’t think Jesus meant for it to be like this.

A paper star on a plastic tree
Cotton snow in a manger scene
We do the best we can to make it feel like home.
Turkey dinner on paper plates
Sargent bows his head to pray
Boombox playin’ silent night
Camouflage and Christmas Lights.

There probably up on the hill by now
Bundled up and sleddin’ down
Catchin’ snowflakes on the edge of their tongues
Standin’ up at the top would be
The prettiest girl I’ve ever seen
Whispering a quiet prayer for all of us.

Some say I’m a hero
But I’m just a Dad
Who’s trying to protect
The most precious thing I have
Someday I’ll be home again
And our world will be right
But for tonight

Thank God it’s a silent night

We know they serve our country best
Their loyalty— a proven test
Every sweet American soldier’s soul
Bears the burden of this honorable goal.

Please keep them in your prayers this holiday season.

    That was excellent Angel. Now if I were closer I’d come over for some of that delicious cake.

    I’ve gone off my diet due to the sweets everybody has been plying me with.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah my friend.

    Woman, that cake looks good.

    Merry Christmas girl.

    Angel,
    Finally, I’m finding time to stop by here to wish you a Merry Christmas.

    I was right on schedule for Christmas — until Mr. AOW had a dental emergency. All has turned out well now except for the huge expense. **sigh**

    But Mr. AOW and I refuse to let this latest glitch ruin our Christmas.

  10. Bunni says:

    How beautiful, Angel!
    Happy Chanukah, and Merry Christmas to you and your family.
    May you get everything you wish for, and have a blessed Holiday.

    A very Merry Christmas and a Happy Chanukah to whatever sounds best to you and your readers!

  13. TheySay/WeSay says:

    When most people pray, the first thing most say is –I need or Please help; BUT the most important thing is forgotten. Praise Him first then pray for His guidance, for He already knows our needs.

    Happy Chanukah
    Happy Christmas

  14. Gramma2Many says:

    Blessings of this very Holy Season to you my dear friend. I pray they continue through all of 2012.
    10PM Pacific time and I am beginning to bake a Cheesecake:)

  15. Defiant_Infidel says:

    The cake is amazing, Angel! A hearty and sincere Merry Christmas to you and yours! ;)

  16. North Northwester says:

    A Merry Christmas to you Angel, and to your family and country and to the servicemen and women of your Republic and this Kingdom of England and of Israel.
    May G*d keep them all safe and keep them strong.

  17. North Northwester says:

    Pu.
    I missed “Happy Chanukah.”
    But I meant it.

  18. Brooke says:

    Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah to you, Angel!

    And God bless our men and women in the Service!

  19. Debbie says:

    Great post about the military Angel. (that cake looks good too) Have a wonderful day.

  20. Maggie@MaggiesNotebook says:

    The song is probably the most poignant of all the military remembrances. So sad. So many sacrifices. Happy Chanukkah sweet friend!

  21. Seane-Anna says:

    My goddaughters’ father is overseas this Christmas season. When I watched the video and listened to the song all I could do was think of him so far away from his wife and precious girls. We really do owe a huge “Thank you!” to all who serve; they are sacrificing more than any of us will ever know. Thank you for posting this, Angel. May you have a happy Hanukkah and a blessed New Year!

  22. Matt says:

    Very nice Angel. Thanks!

    Hugs to you-my Patriot friend—
