He sees you when you’re sleeping.
He knows when you’re awake.
He knows If you’ve been bad or good,
So be good for goodness sake.
Saturday at the market, the young lady in the booth next to us began singing Christmas songs. I quickly joined in much to the dismay of my son who was totally humiliated. At first we tried to come up with the words to “The 12 days of Christmas”. Not the real version but the redneck version written by Jeff Foxworthy. We got most of the verses right but we did miss a few. It didn’t’ matter though because no one else around us knew the words so we got away with it. However I didn’t get away with something else I did.
Remember last week I wrote about some strange people at the market? If you don’t remember, don’t bother going back to read the post. I erased it. Saturday, the person who runs the market, dropped by to see me. It seems that she has this Google notification thingy that emails her when certain words are combined into one sentence. Anyway, she got a notification because I put those three words together in a sentence in that post. So she read it and much to her surprise, she saw my picture and knew it was me. I never realized that people from around here were reading my blog. I decided that it would be best to delete that post since I really don’t want to offend anyone….even weirdoes.
Knowing this, I looked back at some previous visitors and much to my surprise found a few which were labeled government. I am guessing that our government has some of the same search engines out there looking for things that might be anti-government. Nothing surprises me anymore about our government. But just in case I am being watched at this very moment, let me say for the record that I love our government. Even though it is full of corrupt people and many of our laws just don’t make sense.
Speaking of not making sense; Right in front of us at the market was this Menorah. At least that is what we thought it was at first. I have to tell you that I am not all that familiar with the Jewish religion but my first impression was that whoever put up this display not only couldn’t count but they were color blind. You see, there were only 7 candles and I thought there was supposed to be 8 on a Menorah. Also I thought the candles were supposed to be white but this had three green, three red and one black candle. Well Duh, it wasn’t a Menorah, they were Kwanzaa candles. I had to look it up to find this out. Anyway, I also found out that it isn’t anything to do with religion; it is all about being thankful at the end of the year for a bountiful harvest. If anything, it seems to more align itself with New Years than Christmas.
Well some judge sided with the non-Christians and put a hold on the “I Believe” license plates here in South Carolina. He cited that it was a case of separation of Church and State, and the law strictly prohibits combining the two. This sounds like a law that needs to be changed. I am about tired of this but then a long time ago Jesus said this would happen.Thankfully, Jesus also said:
Luke 6: 22 Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.
Have a great day but be good, because He knows everything you do.
