Christmas Eve Eve...

...and it has been a cloudy and cool one...



A friend -- a superb photographer -- did some cloud shots here the other day. One in particular looked, as I told her, "like a herd of poodles." The clouds I saw and photographed just look like clouds, alas.

But I did run across an interesting new take on the life of Jesus that, if generally adopted as fact, might have profound effects on Christmas displays and those who take the role of Jesus in plays, movies and various church pageants....

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like the ones in this photo are staring me down!

And I don't dare check out the link to Jesus (hmmm, that sounds weird) although in the URL I note the reference to Japanese. I'm nearly through reading a book that is Trinity strange and your link might really mess up the story line.

Deb -- I've never seen this version of Jesus's story in any book!

I am speechless, Scribby-San.

that is a lovely picture, and if it's yours, then well done! You could submit it as a postcard at Hallmarks!

As I have now finished the book (late night reading), I shall check out the link without fear of scrambling my brain!

Yep, nothing says Christmas like a genuine "Tomb of Jesus" commemorative keychain from Japan.

Maybe I should go diggin' around in MY back yard. There's no tellin' who's buried back there. :)

I think it's true. Who else lived 106 years at the time.
