Keep Christ in Christmas—He Couldn’t Be Taken Out if We Tried

During the Christmas season, you often hear people complaining about its paganism and its lack of Christ; yet Christ is all throughout Christmas.  Christmas is the season to give, to praise, and to let your light shine.  It is the season to uplift someone else, the make their days merry and bright.  Santa Clause, Decorations,Continue reading “Keep Christ in Christmas—He Couldn’t Be Taken Out if We Tried”

Become the Blessing

For the past week, I have been praying for a few people.  I have prayed for people I know personally and some I have never met.  Some prayers can only be answered by God; yet some can be answered by God’s angels here on earth.  Angels do not have to be heavenly beings but theyContinue reading “Become the Blessing”
