She is kissing me.
Take pictures in the dark.
Pretend you are asleep and aim and hope. See those concentration wrinkles? I am trying to take pictures in the dark and not bother the cat.
The cat decided to lick my face.
she sleeps on my shoulder.
I'm thinking she needs a new bed buddy since I can't shake my asthma off and cats are a big no-no. I look at her and tell her, "You are very cute, very sweet, and oh so lovable; but you are no curly black haired standard poodle.
After photographing us we took pictures of my little tree. Some of the pictures were of my nostrils. I mean really you could look up there and see brains or maybe something else worse than that.
This is my cute little tree. I thought you might be able to see the time on the clock. 3:30am and not the bed that I should be in, sleeping away, but I had a shot of steroids and my eyes are big headlights.
I love the little birdies, partridge in a pear tree or baby quail. I think they look like little quail. Everything on this tree is miniature, it's a cutie about the size of a table lamp and I love it in my room, so cozy.
Then in the mail today was something new. Something I never knew before. some of you are this smart I am sure! But not me. I didn't know this.
The 12 Days of Christmas explained!
What in the World do leaping lords, French hens, swimming swans, and especially the Partridge in a Pear Tree have to do with Christmas? Today I found out.
From 1558 until 1829 Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly.
Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics. It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning and the hidden meaning known only to the members of their church.
Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality, which the children could remember.
The partridge in the pear tree was Jesus Christ.
The two turtledoves were the Old and New Testaments.
Three French hens, stood for faith, hope and love.
The four calling birds the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
The five gold rings recalled the Torah of the law, the first five books of the Bible written by Moses.
The six geese a laying stood for the six days of creation.
Seven swans a swimming represented the seven fold gifts of the Holy Spirit:
Prophesy, serving, teaching, exhortation, contribution, leadership, and mercy.
The eight maids a milking were the eight beatitudes.
Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit:
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.
The ten lords a leaping were the Ten Commandments.
The eleven pipers piping were the eleven faithful disciples.
The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in the Apostles Creed.
So there is your history lesson for the day.
Tonight I intend to sleep. This riddle is now solved. This information was printed in my father's bulletin at his Lutheran church and their source not given so I do not have a reference to quote.
I am assuming the facts are correct, it makes sense.
