what do you treasure?

dear emily,

"an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone
around them, and they were terrified.  but the angel said to them, 'do not
be afraid.  i bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people.
today in the town of david a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the
Lord' . . . and mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her
heart."   luke 2:9, 10,19



we choose what to treasure and ponder.

merry Christmas,
lea

ps.   "angels we have heard on high, sweetly singing o'er the plains . . . "

There really are joys associated with aging, and the gathering of such wisdom is but one of them. I am so grateful for the treasures of my life; treasures that will abide through eternity.

A merry & blessed Christmas to you & yours,

Today many diseases can be treated by a very fine, hair thin, disposable acupuncture needles which are made

Your talents can also be of use in rehabilitation centers.

People are becoming conscious of staying physically fit; also
leniency in reimbursement restriction is resulting in services being available to more people.

unfortunately, so many of us choose poorly and then blame circumstances or others when we're asked to pay the price of poor choice.
