The Sound of the Starting pistol

Well many have already heard the sound of the starting pistol in the race for buying stuff?

For some these days will be very difficult. For some the holiday is one of a series of firsts. First time the baby in the family, a First miss of Thanksgiving by my mother. She’s in the Hospital. My brother and his wife for the 1st time had to cancel their Thanksgiving dinner. They had 3 family members in the hospital at the same time in 3 different areas of Texas.

While we recognize this is uncomfortable, we remain very thankful. We, comfort one another with gentle reminders! Although we are separated, we will soon be together again. Ecclesiastes 3:11. After demonstrating that everything has its time in 3:1-10, Solomon writes:

He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.

Meanwhile, there is lots of happy, thankfulness to go around. More than 2 billion people on this planet live on less than $450.00 annually, that new   knowledge made me “thankful” for what Michelle and I have!

From Good Friends in the Morning, Al & Kevin hope you have many Thankful and Happy days ahead during the Holidays and Christmas!

Pocketbook
This European word dates way back to the 1600s, when it was used to describe a small bag used to carry coins. The name comes from—you guessed it—a small book that used to be carried in one’s pocket, and also held bank notes and money. While your grandmother might still use the term, younger women tend to call their bags ‘purses’ or ‘handbags.’

Tape
If you came of age in the 1980s, chances are you still use the word ‘tape’ when it comes to recording your favorite music or TV shows, as in, ‘I’m not going to be home tonight to watch ‘Knight Rider.’ Could you tape it for me?’ With the advent of digital media, there’s obviously no longer a need to record anything on magnetic tape, but still, old linguistic habits die hard.
