Christmas On Christmas Eve a young boy with light in his eyes Looked deep into Santa’s, to Santa’s surprise, And said as he nestled on Santa’s broad knee, “I want your secret. Tell it to me.” He leaned up and whispered in Santa’s good ear, “How do you do it, year after year?” “I want to know how as you travel about, Giving gifts here and there, you never run out. How is it, dear Santa, that your pack of toys you have plenty for all of the world’s girls and boys? Stays so full never empties, as you make your way From rooftop to rooftop, to homes large and small, From nation to nation, reaching them all” And Santa smiled kindly and said to the boy, “Don’t ask me hard questions, Don’t you want a toy?” But the child shook his head, and Santa could see that he needed the answer. “Now listen to me.” He told the small boy with the light in his eyes, “My secret will make you sadder, and wise.

The truth is my sack is magic in side It holds millions of toys for my Christmas Eve ride. Although I do visit each girl and each boy I don’t always leave them a gaily wrapped Toy. Some homes are hungry, some homes are sad, Some homes are desperate, some homes are bad. Some homes are broken, and children there grieve. Those homes I visit, but what should I leave?” “My sleigh is filled with the happiest stuff, But for homes where despair lives, toys aren’t enough. So I tip toe in, kiss each girl and boy, And pray with them they will be give the joy Of the spirit of Christmas, the spirit that lives In the heart of the dear child who gets not, but gives.” If only God hears me and answers my prayer, When I visit next year, what I will find there Are homes filled with peace, and with giving and love And boys and girls gifted with light from above. It’s a very hard task, my smart little brother, To give toys to some, and to give prayers to others. But the prayers are the best gifts, the best gifts indeed, For God has a way of meeting each need. “That’s part of the answer. The rest, my dear youth, Is that my sack is magic. And that is the truth. In my sack I carry on Christmas Eve Day More love than a Santa could ever give away. The sack never empties of love, or of joys ‘Cause inside it are prayers, and hopes, not just toys. The more that I give, the fuller it seems, Because giving is my way of fulfilling dreams. And so do you know something “You’ve got a sack, too. It’s as magic as mine, and it’s inside of you. It never gets empty, it’s full from the start. It’s the center of lights, and of love. It’s your heart. And if on this Christmas you want to help me, Don’t be so concerned with the gifts ‘neath your tree. Open that sack called your heart, and share Your joy, your friendship, your wealth, your care.” The light in the small boy’s eyes was glowing. “Thanks for the secret. I’ve got to be going.” “Wait, little boy,” said Santa, “don’t go. Will you share? Will you help? Will you use what you know?” And just for a moment the small boy stood still, Touched his heart with his small hand and whispered, “I will.”

More Food for Birds Anyway, I am hoping to attract other birds, like the ones that used to come around in the winter. I am trying to attract them without the ground
feeders that I used for several years. I used small boxes and small food cans and used them as molds for the bird food to
harden in. After mixing grain and other items with the melted suet and poured into the containers, it was put into the refrigerator to harden. I used the mesh bags that oranges, tangerines, etc., came in to put some of the food in and tied it to a tree limb. This is what I made up for the small Finches. I put the suet in a large pot over a very low heat and melted it down. After letting it cool, I mixed 1 cup of millet, ½ cup bread crumbs, ½ cup American cheese, cubed and then added some sand for grit. I used tuna cans to pour this in. I used six inch nails to nail these tins to trees around the yard. I taped the exposed end of the nails for these birds to have a safe perch while they ate. Food for the Wrens was made with 2 cups dried bread
crumbs, ½ cup coconut, 1 cup raisins, 1 cup ground peanuts or pecans, ½ tsp. sand and 1 ½ cups suet. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl, Pour 1 ½ cups of suet over this and pour into boxes to mold. Refrigerate to harden and then put into a piece of net and secure to a tree limb or post. These are only some suggestions. Corn meal can be used instead of the sand. Peanut butter can also be added if desired. We do not have much snow in Southern Oklahoma but to have food out for them when it does snow is gratifying. I know that in the spring I will have Robins, Mockingbirds, Doves, more Sparrows and hopefully the Blue Birds and others in the yard. I know the Cardinals will be back. They have not missed a summer yet. Good luck if you use any of these recipes for the birds.
Memorial Friday for Sissy Kelley
Robbie Lynn ‘Sissy’ Kelley passed away at OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City on Monday, December 3, 2012, at the age of 52 years. Sissy was the daughter of Bill Louis Driver & Sylvia (McAdams) Driver, born on March 26, 1960, in Fort Worth, Texas. She was brought up in the Fort Worth and San Antonio areas. She was married to Daniel Kelley on April 21, 1999, in Jacksboro, Texas. Sissy loved camping, fishing, riding motorcycles, cooking, working computers, and especially loved spending time with her kids and her family. She was the Matriarch and the Rock of the family, and encouraged them often with her special saying, “Keep on striving.” She was much loved and will be missed. She is preceded in death by her parents, Bill & Sylvia Driver; her son, Michael Henderson; and one brother, Bucky Driver. She is survived by her husband, Daniel Kelley, of Allen; four children, Danny Gould Jr. of Pleasanton, Texas, Susan Henderson of Fort Worth, Texas, Sabra Farris and Danielle Kelley, both of Allen, Oklahoma; seven grandchildren, Daniel Gould of Rockport, Texas, Silvia Roseann Gould of Pleasanton, Texas, Dillion Brice Wright of Atwood, Oklahoma, Michael Norstrud, Philip Norstrud, Alexander Norstrud, and Persephone Fisher, all of Fort Worth, Texas; brothers and sisters: Eddie Driver, Kathy and Bob Burden, Jimmy Evratt, Cyndi Evratt, Tommy Evratt, Bubba Evratt, and Jason Evratt; numerous other relatives and many friends. A memorial service will be held at the Holdenville Lake open-air pavilion at noon on Friday, December 14th, with Rev. Matt Hamilton officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations to assist with final expenses may be made to the family, in care of Elaine Hamilton.

One Pharmacist’s View
The sign on the door at the local pharmacy reads: “No Firearms Allowed.” It made me remember the old western song, “Don’t Take Your Gun to Town Son.” One of my friends asked me “why don’t you want to carry, you used to pack a pistol?” “Well,” I replied, “I used to need one but now I don’t.” I was lying through my teeth. I had already thought this out completely. I’m a lot older than I used to be and my life is complicated enough already. For instance I have my glasses to keep up with. I keep getting new glasses because I break or lose them once in a while plus my eyes change so I have lots of glasses. Some change as the light changes. Some are prescription sunglasses (I hate those). I have several pair of squinty reading glasses I buy at dime stores. I spend a lot of time these days just looking for my glasses and trying to remember after I find them if they are mine or someone else’s. Of course, I have to help my beloved significant other whose glasses seem to be lost a lot lately, too. There are other things that need my attention lately. I carry a date book these days. I don’t actually know just where it is right now but it contains
vital information as to my next doctor appointment, my wife’s appointments and all my engagements. It’s hard to remember all that stuff when you’re 65 years old — oh wait, I’m 77 now. Then there is the matter of my heart pills. I have to find and carry those pills everywhere I go — not all that easy to remember either when you consider I’m really looking for my glasses. I’m pretty good at hanging onto my wallet but my keys live a life of their own — able to move about and relocate at their will. And how many times have I had to turn the car around and go back for a cell phone? It’s good I’m not deaf — yet. I’ve learned to dial my cell-phone and wander all over the house till I can hear it. I could go on but I think you get my drift now about carrying a gun. Do I need my wife nagging me with questions of “Where is your gun? Was that it you laid on top of the car before we drove off?” I tell you it would just be another thing. Meanwhile, if I packed and had to leave my pistol in the car while I go into a store what good is it? And how much more would I have to
endure the criticism of my wife when I arrive home with an empty scabbard? The lost gun? Suppose some criminal type finds it and slays their spouse with it and pins the rap on me? I’ve seen those Perry Mason movies. I’m no idiot. So I’ll just leave my gun at home. One last point about why I won’t bother with a carrying permit. The world is due to end on December 21, 2012. This can be a good thing if you think about it. No more income taxes. No inventories to run. No more budgets or resolutions to make. My unbelieving wife already sent out a bunch of Christmas cards but I know it’s a waste of money. I feel a lot of relief about gifting this year. You know how hard it (was) to find a nice gift for the wife. No more worries! I’m not paying any utilities either but I plan on maxing out my credit cards. Sure hope those Mayans are right. Not that it will make any difference after December 21, but they legalized Marijuana in the state of Washington. Perhaps that old movie “Sleepless in Seattle” should be replaced by “Stoned in Seattle.” The State of Washington has plowed some
Light from God’s Word
Mark Legg Allen church of Christ In 1847, Sir James Simpson of Edinburgh discovered the use of chloroform as an anesthetic in surgery. Some have claimed that this was the most significant discovery of modern medicine. In his later years, Sir James was lecturing at Edinburgh University and a student asked, “What do you consider to be the most valuable discovery of your lifetime?” Sir James answered quickly, “My most
valuable discovery was when I discovered myself a sinner and Jesus Christ was my Savior.” Similarly, at age 82, near death, almost blind, and with fading memory, John Newton, author of the timeless song, “Amazing Grace,” spoke these words: “My memory is nearly gone, but I remember two things: I’m a great sinner and Christ is a great Savior.” The book of Romans makes clear this significant truth that Simpson and Newton articulated. The problem is sin (Romans 3:10, 23). The penalty for sin is death (Romans 6:23). The power of God unto salvation is the Gospel (Romans 1:16) The provision for forgiveness of sin is Christ’s death (Romans 5:8). The price paid for forgiveness of sin is Christ’s
blood (Romans 5:9). The process by which we contact that blood is by placing our faith and trust in Jesus (Romans 5:1), confessing Christ (Rom. 10:9-10), turning from sins in repentance (Rom. 2:4), and calling upon Christ’s name by being buried in baptism with Him (Acts 22:16; Rom. 6:1-4). Then, we are to dedicate the rest of our lives in service to Him. (Romans 6:12-18; 12:1) The most valuable discovery you can make is the Savior, Jesus Christ.
new ground (at least in this country) by making smoking Marijuana legal. I think they did this to ease their transition at the end time. No one said whether the end would come on Daylight Savings Time or Standard. While Washington State residents hope to smoke their way through the end of
the world, others surmise they may be doing some other kind of smoking. Oh well, I hope each of you are having a great time of Christmas spirit in spite of all this and be sure to go to church Sunday. Christmas greetings go out to each of you. Wayne Bullard, Pharm.D

Allen Captures third place in conference tournament Coach Mills hopes for winning finish to 2012 portion of schedule By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Mustangs are playing some impressive basketball as they close in on the upcoming Christmas break. Coach Greg Mills’ squad is fresh off a third-place finish in the annual Pontotoc Conference Tournament at Roff. Allen was 2-1 in 3 tourney appearances. The Mustangs crushed the Calvin Bulldogs 77-43 in the opener. AHS then
lost a 71-68 overtime decision to the Stonewall Longhorns in the semi-finals. Allen finished up the tournament with the third-place finish by downing the Roff Tigers 65-56 on Saturday. In the Allen vs Calvin opener, four different Mustangs scored in double figures in the landslide win. Jaret Holland was tops with 19 points. Logan Dennis was next with 12 points. Conner Johnson and Joseph Hopper
This week’s Mustang Update brought to you by:
added 11 points each. Allen exploded to a 3115 lead in the first quarter. The Mustangs pushed the advantage to 47-25 at halftime and 64-35 at the end of three periods. AHS then outscored Calvin 13-8 down the stretch to win by 34 points at 77-43. Coach Mills credited torrid long-range shooting by his Mustangs as the key to the one-sided victory. “We came out and hit 6 of 7 on treys,” the longtime coach said. “When you hit ‘em like that, it makes a big difference.” In the tournament semifinals, Allen was locked up in a tight battle with the Stonewall Longhorns. However, the Mustangs suffered a heartbreaking 7168 loss in overtime. Stonewall led 16-16 after one quarter and 36-29 at the half. The Longhorns then extended the lead to 53-43 in the third quarter. Allen then rallied to outscore Stonewall

17-7 in the final eight minutes of regulation - forcing the game into overtime. “We trailed until the last 8 seconds,” Coach Mills said. “But we hit a shot to send it to overtime.” In the extra session, Stonewall 69-66 with time running out. Cole Young attempted to tie the game with a trey. The Mustang player missed the shot, but was fouled on the play. He swished a pair of free throws to get into within a point at 67-66. However, his third free throw attempt was off the mark and rebounded by the Longhorns. “We fouled them on the rebound with 3 seconds left,” Coach Mills said. “They went down and hit both free throws to win it by 3.” Cole Young led all scorers with a career-high 26 points. Lane Mills followed with 16 points and Logan Dennis added 10. Conner Johnson just missed double figures with 9 points. The overtime loss sent Allen into the third place game against the tournament host Roff Tigers. The Mustangs rebounded with a 65-56 victory. Roff matched the Mustangs’ 15 points in the first quarter. However, Allen then surged ahead 32-23 going into the halftime break. Both squads scored 33 in the second half, which allowed Allen to slip away with the 9-point win at 65-56. Cole Young led the Mustangs in scoring with 19 points. Lane Mills followed with 15 and Jaret Holland tallied 13. Logan Dennis led the remaining AHS players with 8 points.
“This was probably our best game all year,” Coach Mills said. “Going forward, I want us to continue to compete hard and finish before Christmas break on a winning note. I’ll be real pleased with our kids if we do that.” --Pontotoc Conference Dec. 3 -1st Round Allen 77, Calvin 43 Allen - 31-16-17-13 - (77) Calvin - 16-9-10-8 - (43) Allen scoring: Jaret Holland 19, Logan Dennis 12, Conner Johnson 11, Joseph Hopper 11, Cole Young 5, Lane Mills 4, Zayne Erickson 4, Dakota Nickell 4, Little Sky Frazier 3, Matt McCarn 2 and Tommy Peay 2. --Semi-finals Stonewall 71, Allen 68 “OT” Stone - 16 - 20 - 17 - 7 - 11 (71) Allen - 13 - 19 - 11 - 17 - 8 - (68) Allen scoring: Cole Young 26, Lane Mills 16, Logan Dennis 10, Conner Johnson 9, Jaret Holland 4, Zayne Erickson 2 and Joseph Hopper 1. --Third place game Allen 65, Roff 56 Roff – 15 - 8 - 11 - 22 - (56) Allen – 15 - 17 - 13 - 20 (65) Allen scoring: Cole Young 19, Lane Mills 15, Jaret Holland 13, Logan Dennis 8, Conner Johnson 4, Joseph Hopper 4 and Zayne Erickson 2. --This Week & Next Dec.11 - Home vs Wanette Dec. 14 - Away @ New Lima Dec. 18 - Away @ Roff

Now this is more like it! Finally we’re getting enough of a cold snap around here that we can get some Christmas shopping done and the decorations don’t look so out of place. We began singing Christmas carols in the worship services this Sunday, and Joyce Searcy sang “Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem!” as the special music selection. I understand that we will also be having a Christmas program on December 23rd at 5:00 that evening. Rev. Karch’s sermon, titled “Help From God,” was from 2nd Samuel 22:1-11; 37-39 and 2nd Samuel 21:13-22. In Daniel’s song of praise here, he uses such words as “rock,” “shield,” “fortress,” and “deliverer” to describe the Lord. Today, Jesus is the rock of our salvation. He is the shield that provides our
defense against enemies. Jesus is also the Horn of our Salvation. During the time of David a ram’s horn was used to sound the alarm or make other communications. Today, Jesus sounds the alarm to get us help when we are in distress. He is our High Tower, seeing what is coming in time to help us prepare. Jesus is our Refuge—our place of safety. He is our Savior, dying for our salvation. We don’t have to be afraid now because God has given us salvation through his Son. Why did David write such a powerful song of praise to the Lord? Many people assume that Goliath was the only giant walking the earth at the time David made a name for himself by killing him with a slingshot. If we read the chapter previous to this song of praise, though, we see that David and his

troops had recently killed four more giants in battle. It notes as a matter of further interest that one of the giants had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. Today, if we put our faith in Jesus we will be victorious, too. It is encouraging that the last chapter of the last book of the Bible records that we Christians win. Isn’t it a blessing that God gives us this information to reassure us rather than letting us live in suspense about it? Mention this ad and

Lady Mustangs end up 4th in PC tournament
The Allen Advocate, December 13, 2012 - Page 9
their way to a 54-40 loss. Sandra Howshar was the only Allen player to score in double figures with 10. Brittany Graham was second with 8 points. Charlea Leonard led all the others with 6 points. â€œAsher shot the ball really well,â€? said Coach Strong. â€œIt seemed like everything they put up went in. Plus, we didnâ€™t take care of the ball. We had too many turnovers. But give Asher credit. They made shots and played defense.â€? By losing, Allen slipped into the third place showdown with the Vanoss Lady Wolves. It appeared in the early portion of the game that the Lady Mustangs would come away with a win. They led 1510 after a period and 29-23 at the half. However, Vanoss staged a second-half rally to overtake the Allen girls. Vanoss outscored AHS 1611 in the third frame to close the deficit to 40-39. The Lady Wolves then outscored Allen 20-11 in the final quarter to win 59-51. Beyla Skelton had an impressive 21-point scoring performance in the loss. She was the lone Lady Mustang to land in double digits. Other key scorers included Sandra Howshar with 7 points, Erin Warren and Alison Sells with 5 each, and Brittany Graham with 4. â€œThis game was a lot like the Asher game,â€? Coach Strong said. â€œThey hit their shots really well and got to the
free throw line. They made their free throws and thatâ€™ll win you the game almost every time.â€? Allen hosted Wanette for homecoming on Tuesday. The Lady Mustangs will travel to New Lima on Friday and then wrap up the preChristmas campaign at home on Tuesday. â€œI want to see us playing hard in our last games before the break,â€? Coach Strong said. â€œWe are getting better ... but we have to keep fighting to make those improvements.â€? --Pontotoc Conference Tournament First Round Allen 68, Calvin 27 Calvin - 6 - 8 - 5 - 8 - (27) Allen - 19 - 13 - 23 - 13 (68) Allen scoring: Alison Sells 14, Charlea Leonard 14, Alycia Evans 12, Beyla Skelton 6, Kennedy Prentice 5, Miranda Raney 4, Brittany Graham 4, Hannah Heck 2, Cheyenne Nickell 2, Sandra Howshar 2, Jessi Merriman 2 and Erin Warren 1. --Pontotoc County Tournament Semi-finals Asher 54, Allen 40 Allen - 6 - 9 - 13 - 12 - (40) Asher - 15 - 21 - 8 - 11 (54) Allen scoring: Sandra Howshar 10, Brittany Graham 8, Charlea Leonard 6, Beyla

A n h n t iversary Sal 0 5 Specials Now thru Christmas
By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Lady Mustangs exit the annual Pontotoc Conference Tournament with a fourth place showing. The Allen ladies rolled to an easy win over the Calvin Lady Bulldogs in the first round. However, the next two outings produced back to back losses. The Lady Mustangs were beaten by Asher in the semifinals and then lost to Vanoss in the third place game. Calvin proved to be no contest for Coach Jeremy Strongâ€™s AHS squad in the tournament opener. Allen romped to a 68-27 victory. The Lady Mustangs outscored Calvin in each quarter of the game. Allen led 19-6 after a quarter and 32-14 at the half. They pressed on to a 55-19 advantage at the end of the third stanza. Then, down the stretch, the Lady Mustangs outscored Calvin 13-8 to seal up the 68-27 verdict. Three Allen girls landed in double figures in scoring. Alison Sells (4 treys) and Charlea Leonard shared top honors with 14 points each. Alycia Evans was next with 12 points. â€œIt was a good win,â€? said Coach Strong. â€œWe took care of the basketball, executed the offense and made our shots.â€? In the semi-finals, Allen fell behind 15-6 in the first quarter. The Lady Mustangs were forced to play catchup the rest of the way. They trailed 36-15 at halftime on

Atwood Church of the Nazarene
We are singing our Christmas carols and anxiously looking forward to the date. Our children’s Christmas program will be Sunday morning at 11:00. We invite everyone to attend. Children always make it a special time. Murphy sang our special for the morning “O Holy Night.” One of our traditional favorites. Bro. Larry’s sermon was taken from Luke 2:8-20 and entitled “This Christmas, Restore the Wonder.” Christmas is a story about angels, splendor and majesty. It’s the kind of story that young children seem to love. It’s the kind of story that needs to be remembered. What is so easy to believe as a child becomes so difficult to hold on to as an adult. In their day the shepherds hurried to tell the story. In our day we often fail to even stop and think about it. Christmas is about a savior. In those days the world desperately needed a word of hope. Hope appeared out of nowhere to a small group in the middle of nowhere. This Savior did not come for those who were perfect. He came for those who were lost. He came to save the world from sin. Christmas is about finding and proclaiming a savior. The angel told them where and how to find the Savior. The Bible reminds us all that the Savior is still with us today. It tells us that He will receive us if we will come. Once they had found Him, they could not wait to proclaim the good news. On the hillside it was an amazing story. Perhaps the reason the story seems to have lost much of its luster is because we have overlooked the Savior. Without Christ, Christmas becomes insignificant. It’s up to each of us. How will we restore the wonder? Will we make the effort?
