Merry Christmas--Prayer Answered

December 25, 2012


Yes, I said CHRIST. You know--the REAL reason for this season?

I pray that all of ya'll out there on the internet are havin' a happy, blessed and just all around SPLENDIFEROUS Christmas.

We had our prayers answered--we DON'T HAVE TO MOOOOOVE!!!!!!!!!!

The sale of the land didn't happen, and so for a time at least, we are stayin' in our little cowboy cottage. In fact, we may even be BUYIN' it, if the Lord is willin', and things keep goin' in the way they are.

We are officially UNPACKED, and the house has been put back to rights. It is so nice to have things where I can get to them, instead of havin' to dig through a box if I need somethin'.

My son got to go to his dad's for the holiday, so the Redneck and I are by ourselves, We are enjoyin' a quiet day, watchin' movies on one of our Christmas gifts--A BIG SCREEN TV!

Don't get too excited--it's a used one. A fellow was buyin' a new one, so he gave the old one to us--but it's STILL REALLY COOL!

We are watchin' all our action movies--and it's really neat to see stuff blow up on a 36 inch screen.

I'm so thankful for all the blessin's God has given us--but most of all for the gift of Jesus, the Messiah. This day is really just a commemoration of an event that know no really knows when it happened.

I have heard it said that the world digs Christmas, because a baby in a manger is non-threatenin', while the action of a man--no, actually GOD HIMSELF--dyin' on a cross is very threatenin'. That act of ultimate love scares the bejeebers outta the world, because it shows them that they are in NEED of salvation, and most of the world doesn't wanna believe that. They wanna go on thinkin' that they can handle all thier own problems, and that no outside help is necessary...

...but it is.

John 3:16.

I love all ya'll--Merry Christmas.
