Merry Christmas

What is Christmas really? Simply a feel good time of year? I know some people that have a lot of bad memories centered around Christmas in their past. Is it all about Santa, reindeer and giving toys to good little girls and boys? Some may even see Christmas as a contrived holiday to enrich peddlers of products like myself. Some huge companies may be getting very rich from the holiday but, trust me, I'm not. Both good and bad feelings come and go and there are many "isms" around the celebration, the constant of Christmas is a baby that was born over two thousand years ago. That baby was the Christ child, Jesus. Born in an open stable in Bethlehem He was destined for one purpose, to bring the reconciliation of the broken world of mankind with it's Creator. While we're celebrating the "Most wonderful time of the year," please take a moment to reflect on what the birth of Jesus of Nazareth really means. Please take a minute to read the second chapter of the Gospel of Luke. Here's a link for your convenience: (Luke 2) I sincerely hope and pray that this Christmas will bring a clear and deep understanding of the path that Jesus took on mankind's behalf and bring you to a place in life where you want to learn more about Him. Enjoy the video!

I also want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and thank any of you that take the time to look over my blog posts and actually look at my products. You're very appreciated! Some of you may not know what stores I have and what I really do.

grat·i·tude Noun /ˈgratəˌt(y)o͞od/ 

noun: gratefulness, thankfulness, thanks, appreciation,acknowledgement, thank, acknowledgment
  1. The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness

Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, everyone knows that gratitude creates good karma and good cheer for all parties involved. It's also just plain good manners which is something most of us should have learned from a parent when we grew up. Sadly, it's also very uncommon in modern society to hear a simple "thank you." My hope is that we become a kinder and more grateful people and with that in mind, I present these "Thank You" cards I specifically designed for Christmas. Please enjoy them and also, for crying out loud, say "thank you" to those that serve you show a kindness and yes, when you get receive a gift.

See the entire collection here: Christmas Thanks

My store has Thank You cards for all occasions, see them here: Thank You

Enjoy the video!

The Christmas rush is nearly over for my zazzle store. First, I want to thank all of the folks that decided to purchase a gift from Florals by Fred and Scripture Classics. I have had the best week of sales over this last weekend since I opened my store. What is interesting is what folks bought. What didn't surprise me was I sold a lot of Amateur Radio related gifts thanks to a third party. I wish I knew who was advertising my products under Zazzle's affiliate program. I'd sure like to thank them. What really surprised me is the wall clocks I sold. They ran the gamut from sunsets to bald eagles. Again, thanks to all for the purchases, I certainly appreciate the extra money. More than that, it's gratifying that some of you like what I design and the photos I publish. Below I present some of the purchases from this weekend in no particular order. The video is a favorite Christmas Carol.
