Childhood Christmas

My mother is a wonderful godly lady. She has taught me so much over the years. As we move closer to Christmas 2014, a little song she used to sing to my siblings and me keeps coming to my mind. So, I thought I would share it with you.


When I was but a youngster
Christmas meant one things
That I'd be getting lots of toys that day.
But I learned a whole lot different
when Mother sat me down,
and taught me to spell Christmas this way:

C ~ Is for the Christ Child, born upon that day.

H ~ Is for the Herold Angels sing

R ~ Is our Redeemer

I ~ Means Israel

 S ~ Is for the Star that shown so bright.

T ~ Is for Three Wise Men, they who traveled far

M ~ Is for the Manger where He laid

A ~ Is ALL He Stands For, and

S ~ Means Shepherds came.



And That's Why There's A Christmas Day!

I wish you and your family a very
Merry Christmas
and a 
New Year that brings you closer to Jesus!

Thanksgiving

It's all because of HIM.
My heart is thankful for so many things:
The families that I love,
The friendships that I treasure,
The beauty that fills the world around me...

It's all because of HIM.
My heart can be thankful
For every good gift,
For every sweet joy,
For every precious blessing --
and for all the wonderful people
He has brought into my my life.

~ ~ ~

Life has not always been easy. However, He as been with me every step of the way, and for that I am forever grateful.

Being thankful is all about choice and...

"I will give thanks to You, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all Your wonderful deeds." -- Psalm 9:1

Worry or Peace

Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.    Philippians 4:6,7  THE MESSAGE

Anxiety seems to be a natural part of each of our lives, but according to scripture it doesn't have to be that way. When we were younger we worried about very little. Now that we are all grown up worry seems to come about more frequently.




When it comes to the truths of God's Word a godly man once said, "Either you believe or you don’t." After praying he would then say, "Now thank God for the answer."

The problem with worrying about tomorrow is you never run out of tomorrows. We must learn to live life one day at a time. God only gives us help we need for today. He doesn’t give us tomorrow’s help today. 

So don’t worry about what you are going to do tomorrow, because when you get to tomorrow, God’s grace will be there to meet you and give you what you need.

God's answers are expressed in his love for us. When we put our faith in trusting God and his Word we soon find ourselves exchanging our worry for peace and that is a wonderful feeling.

Endurance and Encouragement

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had.. Romans 15:5

Sometime people don't always think the same way we do or treat us the way we want to be treated. God gives us patience and encouragement to love people where they are.


Love that is based upon performance, good behavior, or "right" thinking does not teach the love of God. It is the Holy Spirit who teaches us to love others where they are with the same love God loves us with. 

Are you trying your best to change someone by with holding your love rather than loving the person completely? Does God love you the same way?
