G’day after Christmas! Byron the Quokka here–and are you ready to close our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest? Well, I’m not!

Crikey, look at all the carols that we haven’t posted yet! The carol with 44 views the day it was posted, Dec. 12 (I think), is still in the lead. I don’t think anyone’s going to beat that, but we can keep on playing. The winner gets an autographed copy of Bell Mountain No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever, when it’s published–which should be pretty soon.

Sorry, I’m not allowed to tell you who got those 44 views: don’t want to spoil the surprise. Meanwhile, no way we’re gonna run out of carols! You request ’em, I’ll post ’em.

And a Merry Christmas to us all, and as Tiny Tim observed, God bless us, every one!

A Christmas Prayer

A Christmas prayer, by Lee Duigon.

I’m typing this on Sunday morning, for publication Wednesday morning, when I expect to be doing more Christmas shopping.

This is a prayer, for this Christmas and every Christmas. Please join in.

O Lord our God! Bless this Christmas of 2019, and give it power to work day in, day out, day and night, and every day of 2020. Give it speech that all might hear. Give it the power to draw our hearts to Jesus Christ your Son, our Savior and our rightful King: give it the power to make us strong in His service, strong in His love. And may it move us to love one another, as Our Lord Himself commands.

All year long, O God! Bless this Christmas all year long. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Moonlight Delight

The moon is a wonderful gift from God!! Please enjoy this beautiful poem about the moon!!

(This is reblogged from Lydia Potter’s blog!!)

In His Service and Loving It

What would a night be like without the wonderful moonlight? Dark. Deary. God is faithful in bringing out the moon each night. Too often, we take our moon and its beautiful moonlight for granted.

A quick pic of the moon I took last night.

I really wanted a poem about moonlight to share on this post and I was wondering where I could find a great poem. I ended up asking a great blogger if they would write one for me. Sure enough – that person did! A HUGE thanks to Steve for writing this wonderful poem about moonlight! 🙂

MOONLIGHT DELIGHT

Moonlight truly shines so bright,

Wondrous scene, such a delight.

Under this moon all does shine,

E’en the flowers glow so fine.

Moonlight fills the meadow fast,

In the forest, shadows cast.

Moonlight sits atop the hill,

Spreading light while all is still.

Shining now upon the lake,

G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest seems to be slowing down. So here’s my idea to pep it up!

The prize will be an autographed copy of Bell Mountain No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever. And if you want to find out if Ellayne and Dulayl get eaten by the giant hyena, you’re gonna need this book! It hasn’t been published yet, but it’s all ready to go and it should be coming out early next year.

The winner will be whoever requests the Christmas carol that gets the most views on the day it’s posted. So far the leader has 22 views. Do I hear 25? Thirty? And one thing we don’t have to worry about is running out of Christmas carols!

Here on Rottnest Island, we have no hyenas of any kind, not even little ones. All the quokkas agree that’s a…

G’day! Byron the Quokka here. We don’t get any snow on Rottnest Island: that picture’s me on our family vacation to New Jersey. Only chance I ever got to use my skis.

Anyhow, I’m here to report on the progress of our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest. And the carol that got 24 views on Dec. 1 is still in the lead. No, I’m not going to tell you what it was, or who posted it. It’s sort of a blind taste test. I love those! Did you ever see the one where they’ve got people taste-testing cat food? Fantastic!

So let’s keep those carols coming, folks. I told Lee I could make this a tremendously successful contest and I won’t want to wind up looking like a doo-dah. It would be very bad for my prestige!

Let the Contest Begin!

Attention please!! Here’s a very important announcement from Byron the Quokka…

G’day! Byron the Quokka here. Look at the neat tennis ball I found! Some careless human lost it, they must think these things grow on trees.

Ah! But I’m here to officially open our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest, beginning–today!

Here’s the rules. The winner is that reader who requests a Christmas carol and, on the day it’s requested and posted, racks up the most views. So if, say, on Dec. 14, Reader A requests “Pat-a-Pan” and gets 24 views for it on that day; but on Dec. 17, Reader B requests “Noel” and gets 29 views for it on that day–well, Reader B would be the winner, unless someone else comes along and does even better.

I think the winner ought to get a tennis ball, I love the way you can pull the hair off them–the tennis balls, not the winner–but I think the prize will be an…

Announcing Our Christmas Carol Contest

Get ready for the Christmas Carol Contest that is going to be held on Lee Duigon’s blog!!!

G’day! Byron the Quokka here… and I’m not quite sure why I’m here today. Let me just collect my thoughts.

Oh! Right! Our 2019 Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest! That’s why Lee posted that picture of our Quokka Christmas tree ornament. It’s a reminder that God’s whole creation, including quokkas, is saved by Jesus Christ.

Anyway, the contest starts the day after Thanksgiving and the winner, when the smoke clears, wins an autographed book. Last year’s winner was TheWhiteRabbit. This year–well, it could be you!

Here’s how it works. We post Christmas carols each day, all the carols requested by readers; and the one whose carol got the most views, on the day it was requested and posted, is the winner. So simple, a kangaroo could understand it.

Now isn’t that more fun than nooze?
