Today’s guest blogger is Pookie.
We’ve been wrapping presents until the wee hours of Christmas Eve. We started on Sunday the 23rd, so is that Christmas Eve Eve? Eve squared? CE^2? Anyhoo…
My beloved Contrary is way beyond tired, so I offered to be her guest blogger for the day. I hope y’all don’t mind that I’m not nearly as funny, but I think you’ll chuckle at the videos.
Serious stuff out of the way first: despite the occasional salty language (okay, downright filthy at times), we are Christians who regularly offer thanks that God (not to mention whichever angel is in charge of the occasional “random” bolt of lighting), is not a regular reader of this particular corner of the Blogosphere. If God’s a regular reader, He must be even more forgiving than we thought.
On the other hand (are You listening?), it would be nice to get a couple of carefully targeted bolts from the blue, so that State Farm buys us a new roof. Wink-wink, nudge-nudge, Big Guy!
Anyhoo (again)… Contrary already posted Larry the Cable Guy’s Christmas carols. Just as funny (but a bit less risque) is Mark Lowry, shown here as part of the Gaither Vocal Band.
Here’s the set-up: what must it have been like to be Mary, entrusted with raising God embodied on Earth? If you think it’s hard to refrain from beating a 5 year old who just thinks he’s omniscient and omnipotent, what do you do with one who really is?
Lowry the Preacher Guy, in three takes:
Like Ron White says, “I told you all of that, just to tell you this.”
You’ve heard this song, I’m sure. Everyone who’s released a Christmas album in the last decade has done their own version. The difference is, Mark Lowry wrote it, and those first two videos just explain why he started wondering.
But you have to wonder, on Christmas Eve: Mary, did you know? Really know what you were in for?
