    About The Ingalls Family by Sarah S. Uthoff 111 Comments littlehouseontheprairie.com
    “..Charles Phillip Ingalls or “Pa” (1836-1902)

    Charles had a wandering foot in all his various incarnations. In real life his family had long been farmers, moving several times while he was growing up in search of a better chance. Charles followed this same pattern with his own family after marrying Caroline Quiner, always in search of better financial opportunities, specifically a successful wheat farm. After many moves and attempts, with his family’s help Charles proved up his homestead, but due to health issues he retired from farming almost immediately afterward. Together Charles and Caroline built up one final home in De Smet, South Dakota. It’s known in Laura circles as the Third Street House and is where Charles and Caroline spent the rest of their respective lives…”

    “..Laura was both a pioneer and an author. She helped her family create a homestead, worked as a seamstress and taught school before marrying Almanzo James Wilder. They set out to build their own farm. They had several failed attempts before finally making a last fresh start in Mansfield, Missouri. They were able to improve their farm slowly until they had a modestly successful farm of over 200 acres. Laura’s work sharing information to improve farm life led to a semi-regular career writing mostly magazine articles for the Missouri Ruralist. Her own ambitions and her daughter Rose’s prodding led her to write and publish a fictionalized account of her childhood in the Little House books. The process of creating the series and later answering her fan mail would be her big project for the rest of her life…”

    “..J.P. Morgan’s uncle wrote “Jingle Bells.” ..

    The “Jingle Bells” composer was the son of a fiercely abolitionist Unitarian minister, Reverend John Pierpont. From an early age, James Lord Pierpont sought adventures far away from his family in Boston. At the age of 14, he ran off from boarding school, joined the crew of a whaling ship and spent nearly a decade at sea. When the California Gold Rush struck in 1849, Pierpont left his wife and children behind in Massachusetts while he chased riches in the West. Returning home several years later no wealthier than when he left, Pierpont departed from his family again in 1853 to become the organist at a Unitarian church in Savannah, Georgia, that was pastored by his brother. Several months after the death of his first wife in 1856, the songwriter married a daughter of Savannah’s mayor and left the two children from his first marriage back in the North with their grandfather. ..”

    The Man Behind ‘Feliz Navidad’ By Caitlin Johnson CBS December 17, 2006, 11:18 AM
    “.. “Feliz Navidad” gets more radio play than any other Christmas song in the country — and it’s #1 on Latino song lists, too, which still astounds Feliciano…

    Feliciano was born in Puerto Rico in 1945, blind at birth from congenital glaucoma, but very much aware of the rhythms around him from the beginning….

    ..What makes his accomplishment more impressive is that Feliciano was a poor, blind kid — one of eleven boys — who moved to New York when he was five, but made his way to the top…”

    The Puerto Rican musician wrote the lyrics of his Christmas classic in English to ensure American radio stations would play it.
    “..The song is big, bright, punchy, and warm; it could melt away all the snow in “White Christmas.” Just 20 words in English and Spanish make up its lyrics—forget the mental and verbal athleticism required to pull off “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” And when Feliciano sings it, he sounds nothing short of effusive in his desire to spread holiday joy: “From the bottom of my heeaaartt!!!” And you can feel that all that joy and earnestness, even if you don’t know quite know what “Prospero año y felicidad” means…”

    Published on Dec 13, 2010
    Many people have been told that December 25th is the birthday of Jesus Christ, but what does the Bible have to say on the matter? Is it truly the day Jesus was born? The short answer would be “no”. “

    Jesus Born Tishri 10 5BC – Died Nisan 14 30AD abidewithchrist.org
    Daniel’s timeline for Jesus rewritten 12/11/13
    “..2. Jesus was born on the Day of Atonement, Tishri 10

    The Day of Atonement, Tishri 10, was a special Sabbath, and the holiest day in the Old Covenant Jewish calendar year. The only day of the year our Heavenly Father came down to be with man, in the Holy of Holies within the Temple at Jerusalem. On this day our Heavenly Father would annually forgive the sins of Israel, make Israel holy for one more year, as they awaited the promised Messiah, Jesus, to come and save them. The significance of this holy day alone, foreshadows that this day would be the Day when Jesus would be born, would come to take away our sins, and make believers spiritually holy forever. The Birth of Jesus

    *The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “On exactly the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement; it shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall humble your souls and present an offering by fire to the Lord.” You shall not do any work on this same day, for it is a day of atonement, to make atonement on your behalf before the Lord your God. Lev 23:26-28 NASB+

    *and the Lord said to Moses, “Tell Aaron your brother not to come at any time into the Holy Place inside the veil, before the mercy seat that is on the ark, so that he may not die. For I will appear in the cloud over the mercy seat. Lev 16:2 ESV+..”

    Jesus’ Birth – The Feast of Trumpets When Was Jesus Born?
    truthinscripture.net
    “..The date of September 11, 3 BC was Tishri 1 on the Jewish calendar in 3 BC. Tishri 1 is, of course, the 1st day of the first Jewish month. This date is also called Yom Teruah: The Day of Trumpets; the Feast of Trumpets; and Rosh Hashanah: Head of the Year, or Feast of the New Year.

    From the proper astronomical interpretation of Revelation 12:1-6 (see previous Post: Jesus’ Birth – Astrological/Zodiacal References in Scripture), the only day in 3 BC which meets the astronomical confluences discussed is September 11, 3 BC, during the period of sunset to moonset, 6:18 pm to 7:39 pm. The close proximity of the positions of the sun and the moon as described in Revelation indicate a new moon time frame, which is exactly the situation which exists on the first day of a Jewish lunar month, as on Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets. Jesus must have been born on the Feast of Trumpets, as no other day of the year in 3 BC could astronomically meet the specific requirements detailed in Revelation…”

    Was the Christmas “Star” a Comet? Hale-Bopp Comet (1997)
    (by Philipp Salzgeber CC-BY-SA-2.0-AT more) factsandfaith.com
    Jesus’ Birth
    “..As presented in Humphreys’ article, Chinese astronomical records document the appearance of three (3) comets around the time of Jesus’ birth:

    12 B.C.
    Halley’s Comet made an appearance on August 12, 12 B.C. and remained visible for 56 days. The sighting was recorded by Chinese astronomers in the Book of Han of the Han Dynasty: “Lately, reproaches in the form of solar eclipses and meteors have been in the sky….Now a bushy star has been seen in Tung-chin….”

    However, because the great majority of scholars maintain Jesus had to have been born between 7 B.C. and 2 B.C. (more>>), Humphreys concludes the 12 B.C. sighting of Halley’s comet is too early to have been the Christmas “star” (aster).
    5 B.C.
    Historical records of the Chinese in 5 B.C. refer to the appearance of a “new star” in the Capricorn Constellation which was “sui-hsing” meaning a “broom star.”Because the “new” star” had a “broom tail”, most astronomers believe the sighting of that “new star” was, in fact, a sighting of a comet with a sweeping tail.
    4 B.C.
    Chinese astronomical records also reference a sighting of a “new star” in 4 B.C.

    However, other than being a “new star” with a tail (and, therefore, most likely a comet), little information is known about the comet. Therefore, Humphreys maintains there is no way to know if that comet exhibited characteristics consistent with the description of the Christmas “star” (aster) in Matthew 2.

    Additionally, because Humphreys believes there is strong evidence that Herod died in 4 B.C. such that Jesus would have been born in 5 B.C. – 6 B.C. (more>>), he eliminates the 4 B.C. comet from consideration.

    [See, Colin Humphreys, “The Star of Bethlehem” (1995), asa.org (accessed 9/16/11)]

    Based on the above, Colin Humphreys proposes the 5 B.C. comet referenced in ancient astronomical records is a credible candidate for the Christmas “star”.

    How Well Does the 5 B.C. Comet Proposal
    Correspond with the 7 Things Scholars Have Historically
    Considered in Evaluating Candidates for the Christmas “Star”?

    Allowing for the unresolved issues which remain concerning how Matthew’s description of the “star” is to be interpreted from the original Greek text (more>>), scholars have historically considered seven (7) things in evaluating the legitimacy of astronomical candidates for the Christmas “star” (aster) (more>>).

    As applied to the 5 B.C. comet, those seven (7) considerations are as follows:

    Does the appearance of the 5 B.C. coma reasonably explain why Magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem looking for “one born king of the Jews” (Matt. 2:1-2)? skip to
    Was the 5 B.C. comet either a new “star” (aster) the Magi saw for the first time rise in the east; or, as alternatively interpreted, was the comet seen by the Magi “when it rose” or “at it’s rising” in the east or was it seen rising in the east? (see, Matt. 2:1-2, 9)? skip to
    Did the 5 B.C. comet appear at the time of Jesus’ birth? skip to
    Does the appearance of the 5 B.C. comet reasonably explain why Herod had to learn from the Magi when the “star” (aster) had appeared? (see, Matt. 2:7)? skip to
    Did the appearance of the 5 B.C. comet last long enough to have been seen by the Magi in the east (Matt. 2:2) and still seen (or, alternatively, seen again) when the Magi left Jerusalem for Bethlehem? (see, Matt 2:9-10)? skip to
    Did the 5 B.C. comet go ahead of the Magi or, alternatively, did it appear to go ahead of the Magi on their journey from Jerusalem to Bethlehem? (see, Matt. 2:9) skip to
    Could the 5 B.C. comet have been seen by the Magi “stopped over” (NIV, NLT), standing over (ASV, KJV) or resting over (ESV) “the place where the child was”? (see, Matt. 2:9) skip to

    Consideration No. 1

    Does the appearance of the 5 B.C. comet reasonably explain why Magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem looking for “one born king of the Jews” (Matt. 2:2)? (more>>)

    Many scholars believe the Magi were pseudo scientists (astronomers) from Babylon or Persia who may have been part of the legacy of Jews who were deported to Babylon by King Nebuchadnezzar II (more>>). If so, the Magi may have been aware of Daniel’s prophecy concerning the coming of a king of the Jews (see, Dan. 9:25); consequently, they may have been looking for a sign of the coming of a Jewish king around the time of Jesus’ birth…”

    The Astronomy Behind The Star Of Bethlehem Brian Koberlein Contributor Science forbes.com
    “..The wise men, or magi in the original Greek, are often represented as kings, but in context were likely astrologers. According to Matthew, they saw some astronomical event as a foretelling of Christ’s birth. There is debate among scholars as to the historical accuracy of event. Matthew is the only gospel that mentions the magi, and many scholars feel it’s a bit of pious allegory to show that the destiny of Jesus was written in the stars. But if we assume for the moment that Matthew’s account is accurate, it raises the question of what exactly the Star of Bethlehem could have been. ..

    Another possibility is that the Star of Bethlehem was a comet. Bright comets do appear in the sky from time to time, and have been described as “hanging over” particular cities or lands, as the Star of Bethlehem is often represented. We know that Halley’s comet was visible in the region in 12 BC, and would have been bright enough to be described as a star. But the writers of Matthew would likely have known the difference between a comet and a star, and specifically noted the event as a star…”

    A third possibility is that it could have been a nova or supernova. These appear in the sky as “new stars” and are sometimes brighter than even Venus or Jupiter in the night sky. This would match the Biblical description, and might have been interpreted as a good omen. Chinese and Korean astronomers noted the appearance of a nova in 5 BC, which would be around the right time frame, but this nova wasn’t noted by astronomers in other regions, so it likely wasn’t particularly bright. A truly bright nova or supernova, such as the one observed by Tycho Brahe in 1572, would have created a remnant that we could observe today, and there is no known remnant that can be dated to the time of Jesus. …

    Is there healing after a Stillbrith or Miscarriage ?

    It was compassion for me to write on this topic today after a special child dedication at my local church of young parents that had a still birth or miscarriage in a prior pregnancy. I can’t personally understand what it is like for what parents have to go through since I’ve never been married or had a child. However, I have parents that lost their first child, which would’ve been my oldest sister. I never spoke to my parents about this as it’ll be a difficult subject to bring-up. However, maybe in the future someday and I’ll definitely give an update here. Till then, I can just share other people’s stories to encourage those out their in the grieving and healing process.

    Stat

    Each year, over 50,000 U.S. children die (U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, 2000). The death of a child is one of the most painful events that an adult can experience and is linked to complicated/traumatic grief reactions –

    Happy Mother’s Day-everyday! What are you appreciative most about your mom?

    GoodnewsEverybody.com L.A. Women, Ladies, Mom, Mother,  etc..

    This morning (Sunday, May 10th of 2009) at church, I was inspired to add more to this after a great-time of worship. The worship leader (Johanna N.) shared about the “Shepherd” (Jesus) going after that 1 leaving the 99 sheeps.
    *see GoodnewsEverybody.com Life: Backslidden-Parable of the Lost Son

    I just felt the “nudge” to emphasize this great Biblical story using my own life experience. I shared about a time back in Junior High School when I got in trouble-serious enough to be sent to the Principal’s office and was sent home after being suspended from school for the rest of the day. I actually came home worried about what my parents was going to do. I came home “crying” to my mom and was greeted with an “unexpected” hug. I was actually expecting to get scolded. I look back at this and just thankful to my mom for her grace, which I see “God’s love” through this-similar to the Parable of the Lost Son/Sheep. I was trying to encourage the folks at church present that we all make mistakes and what we do (aftermath) is what really matters. When my Principal suspended me from school, I could’ve went somewhere (e.g. hide in some nearby “hangout” that many of my peers went- to smoke, do drugs, etc…) besides “home”-gotten myself more in trouble! This is what our Heavenly Father wants us to do-come with a repentent heart towards Him or “back in His arms again“! What I didn’t share is that I haven’t done this more than I should. I’ve made many mistakes and didn’t go back to His arms and dug a deeper pit or hole. PLEASE DON’T DO what I did and “run” to GOD! My Heavenly Father loves you more than what you think.

    Also during my share, I talked about how we all need to be thankful to our “moms”. During “Sunday School”, I asked the kids what are they most thankful to their mom (a little different from the similar activity 2 years ago-see above). Some shared about their mom’s “great” cooking (I love my Mom’s Filipino food, which I appreciated more when I left home for college). With graduations coming-up, many graduates will be thanking their mom, which we need to do more than just once a year-everyday! I appreciate what my mom has done for me as I get older as I realize more what moms do (e.g. take care of children, house work, etc…) through babysitting or observing other moms. Also, meeting other people and realize how blessed I am. I shared in front of the congregation that I became more grateful after having friends, who would share about their stories of being adopted. I might not have the “perfect” family, but I’m thankful and love them!

    Q: What are you appreciative (e.g. cooking-favorite dish, activity, characteristic, etc…)  most about your mom or someone who has been a “mom” to you in your life?
