A word about the MandoMutt Beyond Beast award. As many of our frequent visitors know, our very best instruments may be awarded as a Beyond Beast. You may wonder, just how do we determine a Beyond Beast. We actually have a 30 point number system and six categories, with five being the highest and one being the lowest score in each category. An instrument must score a 28 out 30, or better to be recognized as a Beyond Beast. The six categories are: 1) Tone 2) Volume 3) Fit and Finish 4) Set up and Playability 5) Appointments (bling?) 6) Cosmetic Condition (wear and tear)

Chatter Box

You know, the Christmas story in the Bible is really fascinating. We know about the manger and the three wise men, the virgin Mary and so forth. And, as it is with so much of the Bible, I can read a chapter many times and will find something new each time, or I may read it over and over, but one verse will grab me like it never has before and I may be astonished by this one particular piece of God’s word.

Case in point; In The Gospel According to Luke, he is telling us about the virgin who’s name was Mary and that she was married to Joseph and Mary has yet to “know” Joesph. And an angel came unto her and spoke to her and it startled Mary, but the angel soothed her and told her not to fear and that she had found favour with God. Then in  Luke 1:31-32 And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord shall give unto him the throne of his father David.

As the story continues, Mary wants to know how this can be possible, as she’s still a virgin. The angel then tells her how the Holy Ghost will come upon her and then describes how her cousin Elisabeth, who is old and barren gave birth to a son.

And now we’re at the verse that jumped right off the page at me this particular time. The angel tells her in one of the shortest, yet most powerful verses in the entire Bible. Luke 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible. Is this verse awesome, or what? For Mary, this was the defining moment. She was convinced. In mere moments, she’d experienced fear, confusion, disbelief and great wonder and likely several other emotions. Yet, with one final statement by the angel, For with God nothing shall be impossible, Mary was convinced and seemed certain that what the angel has told her will transpire exactly as he has described. In Luke 1:38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

And you know the rest of the story. It happened just like the angel said it would, For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Thought for the day; As a society, have we allowed Black Friday and Cyber Monday to become larger then Thanksgiving or even Christmas itself?
