Tis The Season To Be Jolly.....

This was our tree last year.  I haven't taken one this year yet.  We have been attending several parties here and there for the past 2 or 3 weeks.  All of them have been very enjoyable and fun.  I have only managed to find a couple of conversations that have left me feeling  that I need to go to confession for  failing to keep the 10th Commandment.  One conversation was with someone that has three homes, one brand new one with all new furniture and a large lake home and another large home.  The man I was talking to though is a very nice man and always willing to give a helping  hand where needed.  He is just a nice man with lots of nice things.  Another party we went to the other night was at a home that was so beautifully decorated...I was just in awe of everything that I was looking at.  What a talented and creative lady she is.  I was slightly jealous when I got back home and realized what a junked up mess I have our home in.  I am.. kinda sorta.. kidding because we are blessed with a very nice home and with a little effort it could be even nicer.  I grew up with so little as far as material possessions...I do know the difference.
Of all weeks to feel down in the dumps though....I find myself feeling that way since yesterday.  I went to the mall and took a few photos of some decorations that I thought I could inspire myself with someday.  When I got back home to load them, I realized that my camera was on video instead of photo.  I then started searching around on the internet for Christmas decorations.   I typed in those words...Christmas decorations.. on google search and up popped a porno site.  I was shocked and horrified.  I really don't know what porno is exactly....but I am guessing it is people having sex and well....enough said.  I hate to bury my head in the sand...but I really am not interested in what it is.  From what little I do know about it...it can't lead to anything good.  I thought about how many children could have done the same thing I did and saw the same thing I did.  I am just so saddened by what is so freely "out there" these days.  All I can do is pray for the people that do these things and pray some more that they can find something else in life that is so much more worthwhile.  When I was  a young person, all I ever knew about was Playboy magazines and even then the women looked like naked Barbie dolls....so it just didn't even seem real.  It is one thing if a person goes looking for those things intentionally and quite another when you aren't looking for it and see it anyway.   It almost makes me want to just stop using the computer except for business reasons.  So if you don't hear from me here anymore...this is the reason.  Maybe I can just give up my blogs and still read some of yours....the friends that I have met these past few years.  Then again maybe I find some middle ground somewhere with what I am feeling.  Sorry about the grouchy sad post.......
