CHRISTMAS AT EASTER 2016

March 18, 2016

I really enjoy the holidays.  Christmas has always been a great time of year for me.  As I child my mom always decorated the house.  Santa and his elves were dripping from  the walls and  sides of doorways.  Our  large  fake  Christmas tree was very ornate but  child centered.  Now Easter itself was always  great  too!  The  focus was on the Passion  of  Christ which made me  become introspective.  I wanted to think about my life and what I could  do to help others.  Jesus the  babe  from Christmas now  all grown up and fulfilling God’s  will for mankind to die on the cross for our sins.

So serious, not so much fun.  Yes Easter Bunnies and  candy  were part of  a celebration of new life…the  Passion of  Christ takes on a more ominous feeling.  Ominous feeling  only because  Christ was giving and giving  of himself to many people around him and yet  his  love  was not fully understood.  However,  he  never despaired and  he  never  stopped giving  and  continued to love  those who did not  love or understand  what he was giving to them.

It  hurts to  think that  He (Jesus)  gave so much and  even still to this very day people  still do not  understand or  realize how much he  loves them.  But  the  joy about  Easter  is that  even though  some  people  did not  or do not  understand  how much Jesus loves them – as in the Passion of Christ still puts his  hand out-…the  OFFER STILL STANDS!  It  was the joy that  sent MaryMagdalene and the 12 Disciples into a room where  Christ Appeared to them.  It was the joy of  the realization that God  loves all people unconditionally.

Even Doubting Thomas saw   Jesus  Resurrected–Alive–and  whole and believed!   I find  Easter  much more  wonderful  and glorious every year! But  I  also see  the  powerful Easter Story; and  yet the solemn Easter story too!

The solemn part of the Easter Story is based on the harsh  treatment  Jesus received

before he was crucified.  He was beaten, and  a crown of thrones was placed upon his head and  he  was mocked and  pushed around and forced to carry his own  cross.  While  he was hung on the cross he  saw his  mother  and  told  Stephen to “behold his  mother and mother behold thy son.”  The  strength in that moment  that  Christ possessed was to give his mother,  the Virgin Mary his  love and  care by showing he was fully  aware that she  needed assistance and for her to accept Stephen as her son since  he would  now become

the fulfillment of  God’s ultimate goal for mankind.  Christ  had now  become the perfect  sacrifice for the sins of mankind.  Jesus was the “LAMB TO BE SLAIN”in accordance with the Jewish Law –a perfect without blemish, sinless human sacrifice for all human beings. The answer to God receiving all humans back into his  presence since the fall of man through Adam and Eve so very long ago.

So  the  strength of His  love  is  beyond  kind  words,  and  miracles of healing.  It  is  the  final  joy that  gives us  ALL HOPE everyday that  Jesus would  give us  a way of  rebuilding from the ashes of  our problems,  hurts,  aches and pains. That  is  what makes  Easter  a very POWERFUL time of year!

So back to Christmas!  I love Christmas because there is a song called “Mary did you know,” and it  speaks to the very seriousness mixed with joy about the baby Jesus! It asked, “Mary did you know that you baby boy would one day walk on water,  did you know  that you baby boy would  SAVE OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS!  That song brings the Christ, Jesus love of mankind  full circle right to Easter and back to Christmas again.

So there in my heart is the joy and seriousness of our  Christmas Easter Story full of love,  joy, and peace.

HAPPY EASTER….ENJOY!

Please enjoy this song called  I love Jesus

Enjoy this  other song called  “JUST ANOTHER SPRING DAY”- there are actually several songs on this track.

HAVE A BLESSED NIGHT ALL!  GO IN PEACE! AND RECEIVE THE JOY OF THE SEASON!

In for the remembrance of Christmas and how Jesus came into the world through a virgin please listen to this track sang by Riveroflifelisajoy….the Ave Maria!

BABY SANNA LOVES “FRED CLAUS! THE MOVIE!”

December 15, 2009

Fred Claus is the brother of Big Santa Claus!  This movie is lovely and endearing for all who enjoy holiday Christmas traditions….but with a twist.

The “Big Br0ther” to Santa Claus lives in his brothers shadow…almost to the extent of being Scorge!  However,  as his own life (Fred Claus) takes a negative turn,  and then more negative turn  to extent that he lands in jail for stealing from Salvation Army  Santa Claus  men who ring the bells on street corners and then receive donations for the poor…Fred Claus  calls his baby  brother Santa Claus.  He asks him for  bail to get out of jail,  and then requests to borrow money for a hairbrain business venture that requires $50, 000.00 loan. 

Baby  Brother Santa Claus agrees on one condition….that Fred Claus come and visit his baby Brother at the NORTH POLE,  and help out just before  Christmas to earn his loan from his baby brother Santa.

It is so adorable that Baby Sanna jumped up and down yelling Yeppee!  Wow!  I love this Movies Mommies!  It Great!!!   I remember the NORTH POLE….!!!  I don’t know about  Fred Claus Mommy…but I like that movie…It very funny…  and North Pole was beau—tiiii—-fulllll!

So next the ending of the Fred Claus movie  was true to holiday form….Fred Claus saves the day….rebuilds and gathers his friends family and most of all his baby brother  Big Santa back unto himself a unified force and helps

BABY SANNA LOVES  FRED CLAUS THE MOVIE!!!

THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS

November 14, 2009

When I was a little girl I loved to enjoy the Christmas season.  My my mother would decorate the entire house and then put candy canes on a flat piece of wood,in the shape of the Christmas tree, about 2 1/2 feet tall  and 2 feet wide and place it on the front door of the house.  People in the neighborhood would come by and take a candy cane off  of the wooden Christmas  Tree.

It was a great time for me as a child.  My mother and father always gave us great holiday times.  I was very young and I remember a picture of myself as a child and I was sitting on a round saucer like dish with handles.  It was a little snow  saucer.  It was one of my favorite Christmas gifts…!

My mother would place an artificial Christmas Tree every year and it had snow blowing from  the top of   it.  It was so exciting to have the tree with snow falling down and  the color wheel would hightlight the tree and make the holiday season so much more vibrant.  I would get more and more happy and excited about the season. 

I always loved the Nativity Scene with Baby Jesus.  My  mother would always have it near the Christmas tree.  So when the color wheel would turn it would cast beautiful hues against the Nativity.

My mother would have a gold bell that was about the size of a joug of apple cider and that would be good also.  It would play Christmas tunes  with a tinkling sound. 

Little green,  yellow,  red,  and maybe a few blue elves would  be hung from the walls and windows of the house, especially in the  living room next to and around the Christmas tree.  I would would play with the elves and then place them back on their special little holiday perches.  My dog Cindy and I would play under the Christmas tree, before Christmas Day and of course on Christmas day.   My mother would send me to Sunday School with Granny from across the street.  I would learn the true meaning of  Christmas.  I would hear the story about a very special young lady named Mary who had what was called a Virgin Birth of her baby named  Jesus! 

I really did not understand everything…but I began to get the feeling that I wanted to have the happiness of  Jesus in my heart.  I understood that I was receiving a type of  joy. 

My father gave me  a little  clear plastic globe with a metal base and it had a tiny train that rode round and round  every time I turn the little leaver.  I was a child that had my favorite toys…

I think I will get a new train for under the Christmas tree…I will look  into it.  My like of Big Santa came because my Mommy would take me to see him in the Green Acres Mall or the Gertz Mall when  I would have a picture taken every year with Santa.  He would ask me if I had been a good  girl and I would say in a shy little voice…”YES SANTA!”  Santa would then smile and I would have my picture taken.

Then on for the wait.  I would now have dreams of “sugar plums dancing in my head!”

Suddenly Christmas Day would soon arrive.  I would open gifts,  and spy the cookie crumbs  and half full glass of milk that Big Santa had left behind.  I guess Santa was more hungry then I thought….but not as thirsty.   So,  now I began to open gifts and giggle and smile and look at the Nativity scene.  I enjoyed myself so much when I was a child…that now that I am an adult I just enjoy the look on others faces  and remember my youth as a little girl and the Spirit of Christmas.   I love to create it and share it with others.  And that my friend is where I get the Baby Sanna Stories!~   A little Dolly that reminds me of my childhood memories. 

Hello world!

November 5, 2009

Just so you know…..Baby Sanna is a stuffed Animal toy…but

he is very smart and cutely.  He has his own little language

and his life enjoyed by Mommy and Joshie.  Joshie is a little

boy that found Baby Sanna in a store and he gave Baby

to Mommy as a gift for Christmas.  Mommy grew to love

having Baby Sanna around the house all year long.  So that is

when the Baby Sanna stories began.  Baby Sanna told how

he was “born” in the North Pole, and about how Big Santa

and Mrs. Santa had so many little Baby Sanna’s that they had

to send them to the stores.  They believed that all the little

Baby Sannas could help remind the children of the world

to behave nicely so that they would always get nice gifts

for Christmas.  So that is how Baby Sanna came to live with

Mommy and Joshie. 

What does Baby Sanna Eat?

Well,  since Baby Sanna is made of  soft downy fluff from the

North Pole …he eats,  soft pastel yarns, and cotton. 

What is Baby Sanna favorite snack?  

Of course…Baby Sanna….eats striped red and white candy

canes!

Baby Sanna claims to know all of Big Sanna’s Reindeer….the

real reindeer and the stuffed ones too.

Joshie loves for Baby Sanna to tell  stories about the elves!

Sometimes the elves in Big Santa’s  North Pole toy shop

act up!  They are very fast workers and love to eat  alot of

candy canes.  They  love to dance silly dances and ride the

candy cane slide in the play room of the North Pole.  You

elves are little workers…but they are still very young. 

Not as young as a Baby Sanna…but somewhat like a

teenager.  They are a little more mature than that…Very

silly indeed as well!  They love do flips and cartwheels when

they finish making their toys for the good little boys and

girls!    But sometimes they run into Mrs. Santa Claus

kitchen to get pink milk from the red and white striped

cow that has its own heated barn in the North Pole Candy

Cane  Lane Farm.

Baby Sanna Stories will continue later…stay tuned….
