The Wonder of It All
by Chuck Swindoll
When Mary and Joseph began their
journey southward to Bethlehem, they probably thought they had time
to make the trip, register for the census, and then return home to
Nazareth before the baby would be born. The weather cooperated and a
donkey carried their provisions, but the journey proved more lengthy
than either of them had expected. Mary was soon to give birth.
By the time they reached Bethlehem,
Mary was exhausted. To make matters worse, the tiny town was packed
with travel-weary people.

dozen or more injured.
I often turn to Matthew 5:1-12 Verse 7

Praying for those injured and mourning

PSALM 23:4 (NIV)
4. Even though I walk through the
darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and
your staff, they comfort me.
I listened to a news update reporting that a driver of a pick-up ran
down at least a dozen bicyclist with about half of those being
Jesus Is the Revealer of the Invisible
It was the Father’s good pleasure for
all the fullness to dwell in Him.
Most historians acknowledge that there
was a man named Jesus who walked on the earth 2,000 years ago. And
even agnostics concede that nobody has influenced the world for good
more than Jesus. Hospitals, orphanages, universities, and many
scientific advances—all of these things came about through
Christians because of their faith in Christ. And yet, as wonderful as
those accomplishments were, that’s not what makes Jesus the most
holy person who ever lived.
intense week !
you ever read or walked the Stations of the Cross? Although mostly
observed by Catholic and Orthodox believer's yet it can be a very
moving experience for Protestant's like myself during this week of
Passover and Passion of Christ culminating with the Resurrection
Christian Salvation is like no other Faith.
Disciples could not be dissuaded, just try to imagine the words of
Jesus echoing in your head as you looked into the empty tomb. Is
there anything in your life that no matter what, what family, friends
or any one, you will never change.
God so Loved the World
is often known as the Love month, Valentines Day. Marketers have used
February for everything from selling candy, flowers, vacations. One
web site has declared February The Month of Love and Kindness even
appointing the week of 12 to 18th. the week of "Random Act's of
Kindness Week" and my sisters birthday. Who didn't already know
that? Well I don't expect you knew that the oldest of my 5 younger
sisters was born on Feb. 14th. Happy Valentines Day!

King David in the Bible: (11Nov 16)
May be the consummate soldier and Veteran.
The soldier and citizen share the pride of battles fought and won to protect the Constitution, the Nation and the people.
Isn’t this the David they sang about in their dances: “ ‘Saul has slain his thousands, and David his tens of thousands’?”
The “Veterans” lives with the destruction and loss of lives! And always the loss of those that perished beside Him or at his hand.
The beginning of a new presidency
We are electing the next leader of our nation.
The next administration could bring about a major shift in the culture war against Christianity and will largely determine whether or not our government continues to pursue policies that are anti- and even post-Christian.
“1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.
