The Seven Swans represent the Seven Holy Gifts of the Holy Spirit: 1) prophecy, 2) ministry, 3) teaching, 4) exhortation, 5) giving, 6) leading, and 7) compassion. (Romans 12:6-8; cf. 1Corinthians 12:8-11)
We all need to remember this day: Saturday, December 19, year of our Lord 2009. This is the day we found out that there is no sitting Democrat Senator that cannot be bought. Breaking News today: Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska, the lone holdout, has agreed to sign on to the Senate Health Care Bill, for an untold amount of money, and other incentives. According to Senator Kent Conrad, the deal is similar to the bribe taken by Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, a paltry 300 million dollars. In Senator Kent Conrad's own words, regarding Nelson's deal, " Oh, it'll be much more than that". So, where does that leave the American people? It leaves us at the mercy of our elected officials. The government that has managed to take over huge private industries, i.e., GM, and Chrysler. The government who has run Medicare, the U.S. Postal Service, Freddy Mac, and Fannie Mae into the ground, and put them on the verge of bankruptcy, will now control every ones health care. This will be the largest redistribution of wealth ever, in the history of the world, not just America.
Suffice to say, "there is no integrity in Washington, D.C. " The sitting legislators have managed to shred even more of the Constitution. The most unpopular Bill ever raised before our Senate and House, going to be voted on, and shoved down the throats of all Americans. Washington, D.C. will not listen to the American people. We are non-existent as far as those politicians are concerned. It is imperative that each and every legislator that signed onto this Health Care Travesty, be kicked out of office for ever, and never be allowed to run for another position in government. Actually they should be put on trial for treason against the American people. The people we have in Washington, make me sick to my stomach. That means every Democrat from Obama to the the Senate, and the House of Representatives.
God Help This Country, Pray for the conversion of Islam, and for the conviction of our elected leaders in Washington, D.C. AMEN!!!

ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS, My Truelove gave to me, three French Hens. The three French hens represent the Three Theological Virtues: 1) FAITH, 2) HOPE, 3) LOVE. (1 Corinthians 13:13)
In these days, we are faced with so much uncertainty, hopes can be stifled by the state of the economy. Love, many of us love our country but we fear our government. Our Faith, however, can not be shaken. Jesus came to earth, He made the ultimate sacrifice for us, all of us. Isn't it wonderful to know that Jesus has made the gift of salvation available to all mankind? All we need to do is accept it. Christmas is a time that should be filled with Faith, Hope, and Love. It can be, if we all remember the true reason for the season. What our country needs most, is to place God back in His rightful place in our society, at the top. Even as our government tries every way possible to remove God, we must keep Him in our hearts and minds. We must encourage a new revival, and we must remember that through it all, God is in control. If that thought doesn't fill your hearts with Joy this season, I don't know what will. God Bless You All, don't forget to wish everyone you meet a Very Merry Christmas, even if they don't want to hear it. Pray for the conversion of Islam.
(Important to keep in mind, that the Twelve Days of Christmas explanation, are in fact theoretical in nature, there is no historical proof that the song depicts any accuracy, but the symbolism is good. In my minds eye, if it isn't factual, it should be.)

With the world in turmoil, and our freedoms, and liberties hanging in the balance these days, it is important for us to remember that God gave us His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. We celebrate Jesus' birthday and we call it Christmas. Beginning today, I will post each of the twelve days for us to observe, and what the Christian significance of each day is, that way, when December 25th comes, we can begin our twelve days Christmas, as taught in the 16th century. December 25th, the 1st day of Christmas: THE PARTRIDGE IN THE PEAR TREE IS JESUS CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD, WHOSE BIRTHDAY WE CELEBRATE. CHRIST IS SYMBOLICALLY PRESENTED AS A MOTHER PARTRIDGE THAT FEIGNS INJURY TO DECOY PREDATORS FROM HER HELPLESS NESTLINGS, RECALLING THE EXPRESSION OF CHRIST'S SADNESS OVER THE FATE OF JERUSALEM: Jerusalem! Jerusalem! How often would I have sheltered you under my wings, as a hen does her chicks, but you would not have it so..." (Luke 13:34)
I hope that you will all stay with me through these next twelve days. Pray for our country, and beginning today, I personally will start praying for the conversion of Islam. I will present this to the pastor of my church, that beginning today we as Christians pray for Islam to be converted to Christianity, as only that conversion will begin the start of Peace On Earth.
