What Fills My Cup (22:44)
Homemade Hot Chocolate
In a heavy saucepan combine 1/4 cup of cocoa powder, 1/4 cup of sugar, 1/3 cup of hot water and a pinch of salt. Heat to a boil and cook for one minute. Stir in 4 cups of milk and bring to a boil once again. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve in festive cups or mugs, or you can place the hot chocolate in a crock pot on low to keep warm. Of course, add marshmallows to the top when serving! Enjoy!
Shepherds and Sheep in the Nativity (23:50)
As we gaze on nativity scenes and smile at those gunnysack shepherds, let’s not lose sight of the striking irony. A handful of shepherds, marginalized by the social and religious elite, were chosen to break the silence of centuries, heralding Messiah’s birth.
May God bless you and the ones you love. Merry Christmas!
[As always, many thanks to Chief for helping me get comfortable with a new audio recorder, and lighting the little red stove downstairs so that things would be cozy while recording.]
