Daily Prompt: Finally And At Last!

Finally the last post of the year for Po’ Girl Shines!

Daily Prompt: Cozy as I Please

How fine a line between cozy and sty?

I ponder this as I breath a sigh.

You’ve heard of tea cozies, meet “couch cozy!”  Created by throwing an oversized quilt on my dark sofa.  I am still unpacking and trying to find places for things so they don’t have to be in boxes or on shelves anymore.  Selling or giving away what I can and now starting to throw out my “toxic” clothing that I never wore very much.  The man made fabrics that never breathed or fit very well.  Stuff too worn to donate.  Even changing over to the natural fibers is no guarantee of fabric safety since most use pesticides everywhere now.

I’ve been sick more than well since October until just a few days ago so I don’t really care what my place looks like.  No one can come in and I have not been out much except for water and supplies and do wear a “sick” mask everywhere so I don’t spread my cold or catch something else from all the unbridled sneezing everywhere I go.  I buy my own drinking water since the tap water out here in the sticks is well water, too hard and I can’t drink that softened stuff, gross!

Had to take some plants off the sill because they started dying.  I have some cuttings ready to transplant so I will do this and just keep them inside on my patio table I have right in front of the window for now.  To the far left of the plants you can just see the large silver spoon I use as a spade inside for my houseplants.  I gave away my garden tools when I moved from my house.  This was from our family’s original silver set we used to use during the holidays.  Most of the silver plating is off of them now but I’m glad I can use this piece for something.

Great Daily Prompt choice for right now in my area as we are in sub-zero weather and it is miserable inside and out.  This is expected for the next couple weeks or so.  UGH!!   This older apartment building has a boiler and sometimes the heat is not sent through the building evenly.  I have purchased a small ceramic heater that I use for short bursts if it gets too cold.  What sucks is I am paying extra for this supplemental heat since the heat they supply is included in my monthly rent.  My brothers have it worse further north.  Way more snow and much colder temperatures of 25 below wind chill this morning.  It was maybe 6 below in my neck of the woods.

This was a “cozy corner” in the living room next to the sofa before I condensed much of it down, got some hung and put some of my unfinished work away.

So dangerous for all the party goers celebrating the remainder of our holiday time now.  New Years a few days away, there will be many out traveling the icy roads.  Please be careful out there!  I purchased this super sized Christmas stocking many years ago at a charity function for Children’s Hospital.  Very whimsical!

Still have my oversized opulent stocking hung inside my front door that gives it a cozier look than a wreath.

Daily Prompt: Cherish God With All Your Heart

Merry Christmas everyone!

Last of the excerpts from the Holy Bible, the Gospel of Luke.  The Nativity of our Savior Christ Jesus which we celebrate by tradition on December 25th.

Luke 2

  1. And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
  2. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
  3. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
  4. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
  5. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
  6. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

 

Daily Prompt: “Holy Infant So Tender & Mild”

Always loved the song “Silent Night.”  We would sing this every Christmas when I was young.

Enjoy the continuation of the Nativity, the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Luke 2

  1. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
  2. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
  3. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
  4. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
  5. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
  6. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
  7. Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Daily Prompt: Torn Between Two Worlds

The spiritual world and the earthy, material world you now inhabit with your body.  Most of us are torn between the spiritual and the material with all it’s readily available temptations.  More than ever our culture knows no bounds because those in charge are the unGodly.  Sad that most don’t even have it in them to know God, to do the right thing.  Most do what they need to so they can look good, not out of any goodness in their own heart that comes from obeying God.  Jesus was obedient, even unto His crucifixion.

The next excerpt of the conception and birth of our Lord Jesus Christ from the Holy Bible.

Luke 1

  1. And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,
  2. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,
  3. And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
  4. As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:
  5. That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;
  6. To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;
  7. The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
  8. That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,
  9. In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
  10. And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
  11. To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins.
  12. Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us.
  13. To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
  14. And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
