Eat it or starve.

Today is the 2nd Day of Christmas.  I celebrate the 12 Days of Christmas, not because my birthday happens to fall in the middle – that is just ICING – but because it helps (me) to keep the true meaning alive.  So, we all know what “my true love gave to me” yesterday.  #BESTgiftEVER.  Today, my true love gave to me “two turtle-doves”.  Now, what exactly are turtle-doves anyway?  Turtles that look/act like doves? Did some research and some text liken a turtle-dove to a pigeon.  Hmm, I can’t recall anyone except M. Tyson liking pigeons.  According to some text, turtle-doves were the only birds permitted in sacrifice.  Just a lil something to make you go hmmm.  “Look at the birds in the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them.”  “The L-rd is my shepherd, I shall not want.”  He feeds his flock, every day.  It may not be what you want, but want, you shall not.

Some say the two turtle-doves represent the Old and New Testament.  Like birds, you leave one and go to the other, but sooner or later you go/refer back to the old.  By today’s standards G-d might be considered a hoarder.  He had the Old and then made something New but kept the Old, you know, just in case.  He and my grandmother are good friends, she kept a lot of things, “just in case.”  #whatailsya
