Remember the CHRIST in CHRISTMAS

24 Dec

We live in a day when it is more politically correct to say Happy Holidays, Season’s Greetings instead of Merry Christmas.  I came across this video and it touched my heart with the beautiful message.  I wanted to share it with my friends, family and all of you.  I hope to share and education more people in remembering the true meaning of Christmas and keeping CHRIST in Christmas! 

Merry Christmas!!

Santa’s Surprise!

20 Dec

Santa’s Surprise!

This world is excited with Santa!

We’re told that he loves girls and boys.

And each year he pays them a visit,

Loaded with candies and toys.


Busy elves are his helpers,

Working with Santa every day.

And on the night before Christmas,

Rudolf guides Santa’s sleigh.


But I am excited with Jesus!

I found that he’s just not a tale.

Angels, not elves do his bidding.

He meets all my needs without fail.


He doesn’t just come in December,

He lives in my heart everyday.

He gave me His Name and His power.

I use it whenever I pray.


Everyday’s Christmas with Jesus.

Each day is filled with surprise.

He is both the gift and the giver.

Whatever we lack, He supplies.


This weekend my mom, my daughter and I spent the week back in Iowa where my mother and I grew up.  We had a fun, busy rewarding time.  I enjoyed seeing the smiles and joy from many of my friends and family.  Some I see often and a few I have not seen in years.  It reminds me how important both family and friendships are.  How easy it is to forget to call, email or even text.  I already know my New Year’s Resolution for 2011.  I have already started working on it.  It is to do better with staying in contact with my friends and family.  The smiles I saw this week meant a lot to me and I know my smiles meant a lot to them.  🙂

The Santa Surprise I shared with you was given to me by my mother.  At first I thought it was a cute little Santa poem, but the meaning behind it is so true and very awesome. 

Merry Christmas to everyone who reads this and remember all your friends and family this Christmas and everyday!

Being a Christian is Like Being a Pumpkin

25 Oct

I don’t get a lot of emails from my father and when I do receive one they can be pretty special. 

Today I went to my email and opened this particular email up from his and it instantly made me smile.  I am sure when you take the time to read it you will soon understand and know why.  Simple, sweet yet very much to the point.  God is good and touches us in so many ways!

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin.   God lifts you up,  
takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.   He opens you  
up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff–  
including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.    Then He carves  
you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for  
all the world to see.    This was passed on to me from another  
pumpkin.   Now, it is your turn to pass it to a pumpkin.   I liked  
this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch.    

Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!!



Horses Can Be Amazing Animals

25 Oct

Today was such a fun, amazing day.  Don’t you just love when you have those kind of days?  I woke up this morning knowing we had an exciting day planned, but I never realized just how rewarding, fun and relaxing of a day it would turn out to be. 

The plan…to take my daughter to her friends to have a play date.  Grace was invited to ride horses and just have fun!  Grace was so excited about riding the horse!  She had never been on a horse or really been around them.  I must admit, I was excited too!  Not just for Grace, but there was a little part inside me that was excited.  I grew up with a good friend that had horses and I went with her family once or twice to ride them.  It was such a good memory for me. 

They (meaning the weather guys) said it would rain.  We hoped it would stay away along enough for the girls to ride for a little while.  Was it luck or were they, the weather guys, just wrong?  It turned out to be a beautiful day and we all had a blast.  Doug and I met Haley’s ( Grace’s friend) parents and they are just wonderful people.  We had a really nice time.  I can honestly say one of the most relaxing, good afternoons I have had in a long time. 

Don’t you just love meeting new people?  Don’t you just love it when you just click and feel like you have known them and everything just fits?  Well, after a few times asking they did finally get me up on that horse.  I was so glad I did.  It was a lot of fun.  What a fun, relaxing and awesome Sunday afternoon!
