CHRISTMAS 2011

To all my bloggy friends out there...MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I also want to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone...where ever you are around the world...that reads this blog.

As bloggers...and readers...we may all live in different places but we have one thing in common...JESUS! If it weren't for JESUS being born a long time ago in that little stable, we wouldn't know the amazing love we know now. Because of JESUS we have peace...hope...joy...and love that fills our life. We all have a common bond in Him. Isn't it great how we can come together...write and read...and just simply share JESUS. We can pray for each other and help each other in our daily walk with HIM. 

If you are a reader and you don't know JESUS as your Savior there is no better time to ask HIM to forgive you of your sins and to come into your life. That's the reason HE came to earth and was born here. To bring us HIS amazing gift of salvation so one day we can go to be with HIM. If you haven't asked HIM into your heart you can do that now. Just simply talk to HIM and tell HIM you're sorry for your sins and ask HIS forgiveness. JESUS is waiting for you to do that. HE loves you so much that HE gave HIS life for you.

There's a little song I remember singing as a child...

Into my heart, Into my heart,
Come into my heart LORD JESUS.
Come in today, Come in to stay,
Come into my heart LORD JESUS.

Pretty much that's all you have to say...Come into my heart, come in to stay. I know I need YOU and I believe YOU died for me. Help me to turn my life around so that I can live for You. Thank YOU for loving me and saving me. In JESUS name...amen. 

Then have the best Christmas you have ever had! 
Here is the Christmas story.

Luke 2

The Birth of Jesus
 1 At that time the Roman emperor, Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire. 2 (This was the first census taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 All returned to their own ancestral towns to register for this census. 4 And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, David’s ancient home. He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee. 5 He took with him Mary, his fiancĂ©e, who was now obviously pregnant.
 6 And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born. 7 She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.
The Shepherds and Angels
 8 That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. 9 Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, 10 but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. 11 The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! 12 And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”
 13 Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying,
 14 “Glory to God in highest heaven,
      and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”
 15 When the angels had returned to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, “Let’s go to Bethlehem! Let’s see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
 16 They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger. 17 After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child. 18 All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished, 19 but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often. 20 The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them.
Jesus Is Presented in the Temple
 21 Eight days later, when the baby was circumcised, he was named Jesus, the name given him by the angel even before he was conceived.

Yes Chelle, it is great to be brought together from all walks of life by our common bond in Jesus!

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:34-35
