JOY TO THE WORLD!!!

Christmas is in the air!!! Can you feel it? With just a few more days until CHRISTmas 2016, I thought I’d let Whitney Houston help usher the spirit of CHRISTmas in with her rendition of “JOY TO THE WORLD”. What are your big plans for the holidays? Hopefully each of you will remember the reason for the season is CHRIST!!!

ALL I WANT…

Okay, okay………… James Corden is at it again. This time he has assembled an all-star cast of celebrities to sing Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas”. Have you thought about what you want? This is a good time for me to tell you what I want for Christmas. First and foremost, I want everyone to realize that the reason that we are celebrating this day is because of the birth of Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 9:6 King James Bible
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
The gifts are nice but the ultimate gift is JESUS.
Secondly, I want to spend time with my family (acting silly, relaxing, reminiscing, and just doing what we do… As far as gifts, I can’t even imagine anything that I want except for perhaps to win Powerball, or Mega Millions (now that would be real nice.) For those of you who don’t play….don’t judge me!!! lol. You definitely can’t win if you don’t play…
Lastly, I want for all of my wordpress family to enjoy your Christmas however it is that you celebrate. Just be safe and have lots of fun!!!

15 MORE DAYS…

I couldn’t wait any longer to post this song. I think I post it every year around Christmas. This song is the jam!!! It’s called “Hallelujah! – From Handel’s Messiah: A Soulful Celebration.” This song certainly gets me in the mood for Christmas (not that I need any reason other than the celebration of Jesus’ birth.) With 15 more days to go until Christmas, I just as thrilled as a child at Christmas. I hope each of you enjoy your weekend and I trust you are planning a wonderful Christmas celebration with your family. ‘Tis the season……..to celebrate the BIRTH OF CHRIST!!!

ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS

Lay the gifts aside and get with this:  Christmas is not about the shiny red bow on a box.  What many often forget is that this is a great time to minister to others about the miraculous birth of JESUS CHRIST and HIS saving grace.  The meaning is really conveyed here in this awesome video from the movie “The Bible”.  The song “Mary Did You Know” is being performed by Ceelo Green.

Luke 2:1, 4-5 NIV – The Birth of Jesus ] In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.
