Merry Christmas


16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

......................................


.........................................

Labor of Love 

It was not a silent night
There was blood on the ground
You could hear a woman cry
In the alleyway that night
On the streets of David's town


And the stable was not clean
And the cobblestones were cold
And little Mary full of grace
With tears upon her face
Had no mother's hand to hold


It was a labor of pain
It was a cold sky above
But for the girl on the ground in the dark
With every beat of her beautiful heart
It was a labor of love


Noble Joseph by her side
Callused hands and weary eyes
No midwives to be found
On the streets of David's town
In the middle of the night


So he held her and he prayed
Shafts of moonlight on his face
But the baby in her womb
He was the maker of the moon
He was the author of the faith
That could make the mountains move


It was a labor of pain
It was a cold sky above
But for the girl on the ground in the dark
With every beat of her beautiful heart
It was a labor of love


For little Mary full of grace
With tears on her face
It was a labor of love


It was not a silent night
On the streets of David's town



..............................................

................................
 Have a wonderful Christmas!!!

Let it Go by Demi Lovato


.......................
Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand and here I'll stay
Let it go, let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway
...................
I can't wait to see the movie =)
XOXO,
Dotty

On bad words



Lately on Pinterest I have been unfollowing all the boards that use bad words. That got me thinking about words and language in general. What is it that makes a word bad? Words can only have the meaning that we apply to them. But on the other hand, words are all we've got. We probably use words today that would have been bad fifteen years before...When I ever see any bad words it just seem kinda lazy to me. I mean, if  you have something that you want to say, but you don't care enough to express your thought or opinion into words and you use bad language to make your opinion come across...It doesn't seem like you care all that much. The English language has so gives you so many options that it doesn't ever seem that there is ever an excuse to to use bad language....

What is your opinion on bad words?

Movie Tag

Thank's Sarah  for tagging me :)

1. If the main villain of your favorite book/movie/TV series showed up on your front doorstep, what would you do? (Explain who it is first...)
Well, if Loki from The Avengers showed up on my front doorstep I would probably:

A: Freak out
B: Faint
C: Ask how Thor and the Avengers were
D: Say hi like a normal person, ask him inside for some tea (he's British rite?!) and donuts, then when he come's inside, ask him to boil the water. Then we would drink tea and and i would find him a place for him to get his hair cut. 


 2. Now supposing the heroes opposite this villain showed up just after your exchange. What would you do then?
hide the donuts from Iron man and Thor, then have Thor and Loki make up, but they probably wouldn't 'cuse Loki might have eaten Thor's pop-tarts last time they met and the donuts had awoken painful memory's.....

3. So...moving on, the heroes defeat the villain (with some help from you, of course-whatever it may be. ;) But the next day, you're just walking along, minding your own business, when you suddenly come across the same villain...who is now lying in the dust severely wounded and unconscious. What do you do? 
I  would probably drag him home and give him some herbal tea after calling Thor.

4. Now his minions show up and kidnap both you and him and take you to their universe (or version of your universe, whatever it happens to be.) Your reaction?
*my first thought*

Ummmmm....he doesn't have any :D (hopefully) so I would lecture him on not tricking people into thinking that they were about to be eaten by strange alien people.

5. Your fantastic heroes have arrived to rescue you-but now you're faced with a choice. The villain, out of gratitude for your earlier help, (assuming you actually did help him when he was wounded) has offered you a chance to travel back to your own universe. However, the heroes warn you not to trust him. The only other way for you to get back home is to travel with the heroes on a long and dangerous journey... and there's no guarantee that you'll survive. What. Do. You. Do. 

Well, a a long and dangerous journey with the Avengers would be like, totally awesome :) And they'd probably give me a cape...

I wish It was Raining

Love rainy days ( how appropriate after today's storm!!)
I love the rain...
 I remember loving to go to sleep to the sound of the rain,when I was small. To listen to the sound of the thunder boom in its never ending battle, watching the lighting flicker across my window filling my room with light. Seeing the wind blow the trees back and forth, Or sitting up in bed leaning as far out of my window as I could, always trying but always failing, to catch a drop of rain on my tongue. 
I still love the rain.

Tears


"No, i can never go back. Please. Let me go, you must understand." the tears streamed down her face,"Please, I am broken, they have broken me...go, please before they can find you." she tried to smile, just to stop the tears from falling "Go!" she screamed - they were coming.

For the love of reading


One of the best things...curling up in a corner with a good book, a cup of tea and a blanket. (also chocolate :D)

 I am currently reading The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. It is wonderful :)

The Avengers


 One of my favorite movie's of all time:)

This Guy has a -  (caps lock on :D) REALLY cool shield. And he also can be frozen for a extended langhth of time and then can wake up and save the world :) And he's very nice. And he looks like my big brother. :D


Ok, so this guy is super cool and he has a really cool suit, he is also a genius. And a billionaire. And awesome. 'nuff said.  

So this dude :
A. Has a RED cape
B. Has a super cool Hammer (that he knocks out weird alien people with)
C. Is from outer space (kinda)
D. Is awesome
E. All of the obove
Yep, that's her. One word. Awesome. (Think back flips on top of weird evil alien people (with a cool high-teck  gun ) then various kicks and gymnastics till all the evil alien are ahem...gone. Then everything blows up and she walks out as shown above)


this guy, he's cool. like, who else has ever fallen backwards out of a tall building, using  his super-cool bow to attach a rope (still falling mind you!) and preforming other various acts of  awesomeness!!


As said by Tony Stark he is "A man with breath-taking anger management issues." he also likes to smash  things :)

I leave you with this

Natasha Romanoff:
 These guys come from legends, they're basically Gods.
Steve Rogers: There's only one God, ma'am. And I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that.   

The End.
Goodnight!
XOXO,
Dotty 

Iron Man music

This makes me happy :)

My sister always plays this music whenever we clean the house :D As soon as it turns on 
 we all go from slowly and sadly walking around the house, methodically putting things away, stopping only to cry at our hard fate (not :D), to running around like mad things, stopping occasionally to do a happy dance with The Mother :)

Still that Girl by Britt Nicole


This is one of my favorite songs, I love the lyrics :)

Bittersweet


Pain. All the world went black. Waking, Suffocating. Chained, held back by the darkness itself. The other side of the wall. A boy, almost a man. Falling into the twilight. A face, many faces. Memories. Pain. Her face. the face of light.  A song. Starlight. Happiness. Darkness coming in between him and her light.


 Hope. Pain. Sorrow. Darkness. Then Bitter reality. Would she come if he called? Yes, she would. he knew it in his heart. “Call her.” came the voice through the twilight of his mind, hard, cold cruel.”No,it would destroy her.” ”You will die,all of you will - the darkness will destroy you.” ”No.” his thought quivered. “Call her.” Faster the voice came, breaking through him.”Call her, the song maiden, Lady of Light!” ”No” He was weakening, he could feel it. “Say the words, she will come, she loves you still - call her!” “No.”



A grating, hopeless voice drew him back to the darkness. ”There are none left, the song maidens of starlight have all gone long ago, none are left that wield that power, none can cross the wall.” that voice stopped and he fell back again to the twilight - to the voice....



”Call her, you heard him - even not for your own life but for those who lie, dying in the darkness around you.”No” he was trapped. If he gave in, if he called her, if she came,if she crossed the wall, what then? She would conquer, use the power that is in the song - the light. They would live, they would all live, and he would be free of the darkness - forever! “Call her.” But he knew that not for certain. She might conquer, her light might pierce the darkness. He and those beside him might live, but she would fall. Her light would diminish. Her song would falter. And that world would never see her, she that is most fair, she the Lady of Light. ”Call her!” “No.” Pain.


“What would she have you do? Speak the truth.” He knew he was trapped. He faltered again, broken. “Tell me.” Softly, triumphantly. “No!” he screamed into the twilight, ”No! I will not! I cannot!” “Tell me.” calm, evil the voice came on creeping into every thought. The darkness began to blot out the twilight. It knew he was trapped. “No!” he said trying to force out the darkness. “No!” he breathed to himself, ”forgive me”,  softer still. He spoke the words.


For a moment the world went utterly black. Harsh words. Pain. Sorrow. Faces, hundreds of faces, evil, cruel, hopeless faces flashed across his memory. Pain shook his body. No hope. He breathed in the darkness. Death coming. A song. Light, starlight. Faces, many faces, happy, joyful. Her face. She the most fair, the Lady of light, daughter of the stars. The darkness failing: it was gone. He was free - free from the darkness - they all were. He ran, free of the darkness. The other side. He looked over. Pain. Sorrow. Grief. He drew deep, shuddering breaths. The darkness was gone, but with it the light.
Her light, her song. She was no more...

A man climbed down the wall.

King and Lionheart



I love this song :)
 

Howling ghosts – they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you're a king and I'm a lionheart.
A lionheart.

....

And as the world comes to an end
I'll be here to hold your hand
'Cause you're my king and I'm your lionheart.
