Christmas Greetings with a "Prehistoric" twist!

Credit:  Photo: Chelsea Bednar.  "Where's the dinosaur" game?:  my 4 year old son
I will not be posting anything new until after Christmas day, but I hope to swing around and enjoy each of your blogs a bit when I can squeeze it in.

OK, well... I DID manage a quick Friday Flash 55 (a story in 55 words - no more, no less) and it will be linked up with Mr. Know it All's "Friday Flash 55" tonight at 8pm.

Setting the 55 up tonight is soft violin music....

Peace & Joy to All

Our sweet Lord born within a manger
wrapped in white cloth, protected from danger.
Mary knelt beside her sweet love,
worshiping her Son, thanking Father above
while Joseph stood tall, amazed;
awed as upon a miracle he gazed.
"Peace and joy to all", promised a shining star...

(music "screeches" to a halt)

...even the dinosaur?

Aw, too bad the music screeched to a halt. It would have been fun to hear the dinosaurs part in the mix. It looked mike a veg-eater at least, so it shouldn't have turned into a Christmas Horror flick anyway. ;)
