Daily Prompt: Communal Life of the Christian

There is a communal belief of the Christian that Jesus was born and died to bring God’s people salvation.  We need to be saved from our selfish nature.  Jesus spent His life teaching and serving others, obedient even unto His death on the cross.  This Christmas I am posting excerpts from the Holy Bible telling the story of the Nativity.

Luke 2

  1. And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
  2. (And this taxing was the first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
  3. And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
  4. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
  5. To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
  6. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
  7. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

McCourtie Park, More Than Meets The Eye

Po' Girl Shines

I took another way home from Hidden Lake Gardens in Tipton Michigan because I wanted to swing by Meckleys Flavor Fruit Farm which is packed with cider donuts and cider and everything else you can imagine. I think of it as a cider mill, but there is a petting zoo, gift shop and other things to see and do besides roasting hot dogs on sticks over fire pits.

Upon leaving I noticed the cutest bridge to my right as I drove back down S Jackson Rd to US12 from the farm.  I have been in this area before and had never noticed Bridge Park, or McCourtie Park it’s actual name.  It was created from what was left of “Aiden Lair,” the nickname of the estate owned by wealthy oil and cement tycoon William H L McCourtie.  The home itself no longer stands but the bridgework was renovated and turned into a park located on…

Daily Prompt: If I Ruled the World!

Redo for today’s Daily Prompt!

Po' Girl Shines

I’m reminded of the line in the Wizard of Oz “If I were king of the foreeessstttt!”                                                “Not Prince, not Duke, not Earl!”

Just the thought of it makes me feel all puffed up and arrogant.

The law of nature I would change is to take away everyone’s ego so they don’t feel like I just said this line from a song makes me feel.

No one wanting to be better or have more.  No one letting their egos get in the way of anything so people would actually get along, we would have no wars, no contests, etc.

Life would be lived for the sake of life, not the sake of what we want others to think of us or what we want to gain.
