Cat in the Christmas Tree

  Cat in the Christmas Tree Written by:  Jill Sheets   https://www.pexels.com/photo/green-christmas-tree-with-baubles-6139342/   I knew we shouldn't have put it up. I knew this would happen. In less than an hour -- We had a cat In the Christmas Tree. How proud he is, He is now batting at  One of the glass ornaments. We are just standing there Holding our breath. Waiting -- No one moving Not ever to get the cat down. Afraid of his sharp claws. War marks on our arms, face, And other body parts. Gasping. As the ornamentation falls. The cat looks at the ornament As it falls to the ground. Shattering on the wood floor B eneath the tree-- That took hours to decorate.  Now how many do we have left-- To watch fall to the ground? We hope there is enough To last through Christmas. We just need to make it that far.  

Wanting to Cover the Mirrors

  Wanting to Cover the Mirrors Written by: Jill Sheets   I cannot look in the mirror-- all the scars, the imperfections. My chin is not like it was. Instead-- it is deformed. They took the growth out, but -- did not fix it the chin. You can see where he cut my chin. I find myself feeling like  a teenager. Wanting to look like someone else. You would think adults would have --  grown out of this. It is not all that bad -- I do love my eyes.

Even though snow and rain.   Up the highest mountain-- That I can climb.   Though miles of desert sand. I would even walk though fire To reach out my hand towards you.   I will follow you -- Up to the stars, moons.   Walking towards you -- Step by step.   I will follow you. Let me know. Call my name. Putting a smile on my face As I do what you want me to do-- For your glory.   I will follow you. Show me the first step-- For today and every day after. I will follow you.     Other picture info:  OC Gonzalez @OCVISUAL

Shinning it's light on the people who are walking outside. Flowing in though the windows -- Of every house and building. Looking down on anyone that is looking up. I have always love looking up at the sky at night. I love looking at the moon -- And the stars. Where ever you are out -- At night -- Look up at the sky to see them. Even if it is for a glance. Do not take them for granted.

Favorite Scents of Candles  Written by: Jill Sheets  Picture credit: https://www.freeimages.com/photo/candle-heart-1315828  I did not start liking candles until I was in my upper teens. It was not because I did not like the smell of the candle, but I was afraid that I would knock it over when it was lit.  Now, I am just worried that a cat or dog doing that.    Most of the times when I light a candle it is remembering a person's birthday or passing.  I do like the smell of most candles, but I do have my favorites.  Here is my top five in no particular order.   Fruit candles Lavender  Pie smelling candles (like cherry, apple and pumpkin) Cinnamon  Ocean     I do not have a special reason I like those five.   It is not like they remind me of something.   It really does not go that deep.   I wish I could say that it does.   I wonder what type of candle I will light next time.  What candles do you like? Are there ones that remind you of a happy memory or is it

I remember having my sister’s bible.   I have no idea how I got a hold of it or even why I really had it. I like to think that she gave it to me.   I would sit in the living room by myself and read it after I did my soap opera homework. By watching them and mimicking what I saw.   I open the book to the first page, which was the beginning with the Old Testament.   Probably not the best place to start, but I had no idea about that at the time. Reading in the Old Testament, I slowly started to get scared. I seem to have put myself in their shoes.   Here are a few things that got me scared.   Remember, I was a child, somewhere between 1st and 3rd grade.   Let’s start in Numbers 15:32-36/ Leviticus (in many places throughout that section) you found people getting stoning to death.   I found myself feeling horrible for
