THIS DAY IN 1968:

“Overdoing it is especially common this time of the year for many of us. The causes for this might include too many Christmas activities to attend, too much to eat, too much money spent, too many expectations, and too much tension. Often our efforts at Christmastime result in our feeling stressed out, wrung out, and worn out during a time we should feel the simple joys of commemorating the birth of our Savior. Finding the real joy of Christmas comes not in the hurrying and the scurrying to get more done, nor is it found in the purchasing of gifts. We find real joy when we make the Savior the focus of the season.”

- Thomas S. Monson

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 12/03/18:

A 4-year old son was eating an apple in the back seat of the car, when he asked, "Daddy, why is my apple turning brown?"

"Because," his dad explained, "after you ate the skin off, the meat of the apple came into contact with the air, which caused it to oxidize, thus changing the molecular structure and turning it into a different color."

There was a long silence. Then the son asked softly, "Daddy, are you talking to me?"

Mi Yemalel?

   

Mi Yemalel?

Mi yemalel g'vurot Yisrael?
Otan mi yimneh?
Hen bekohl dor ya kum hagibor goel haam.

Sh'ma Bayamim hahem baz'man hazeh,
Makabi moshia ufodeh,
U v'ya memi kol am Yisrael,
Yit abed yakum lehigael.

Mi yemalel g'vurot Yisrael?
Otan mi yimneh?
Hen bekohl dor ya kum hagibor goel haam.

 

Who Can Retell?

Who can tell the things that befall us?
Who can count them?
In every age a hero or sage came to our aid!

Hark!  In days of yore, in Israel's ancient land,
Brave Maccabeas led the faithful band.
But now all Israel must as one arise.
Redeem itself through deed and sacrifice.

Who can tell the things that befall us?
Who can count them?
In every age a hero or sage came to our aid!

   


"Hear O'Israel! The Lord is our G-d, the Lord is One!"
(Devarim 6:4)
