As Far As IT goes

this is IT for a lot of people.
 It is here already.. CHRISTMAS eve.. It seems we just put the tree back up in the attic.. from last year. I can not believe this year is already almost over. For many, it is all about the gifts, Santa, eating, Time with family they have not seen.etc.. They NEVER put CHRIST in Christmas. They want all for themselves.. or they think of just their four and no more.. Some celebrate the birth, (AND THEY SHOULD), BUT that is as far as it goes... HE was born.. Some still have HIM  in the manger... They don't take it any further. Christ came to be born to DIE!! Die for our sins.. He was wounded for OUR transgressions...  He was born to die upon Calvary. He died so we could live. This is the best  Christmas gift ever given.

Luke 23:33 And when they were come to the place which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
 Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift.
Christmas is a little more merrier this year. Chris'Grandmother went home to Heaven  saturday. She is with her Heavenly Father. He has made this a special Christmas for her, and she is having the best one ever with her Savior, Husband, and two of her children. Today, We will lay her body to rest, but she is with Jesus... Christmas in HEAVEN!!!

We wish everyone in our family, and our friends, and all of our ''blogger friends'' a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a Happy NEW YEAR. Take time out to celebrate the true meaning of this season.  JESUS!! if you do, truely, it will be the best one you have ever had!!

keep it real

 it is truly hard to believe it is Christmas time again!!! to me, this year has been one of the fastest years yet... after february, it just absolutely flew by... Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year... People are usually in better moods, they tend to want to be more generous...they are more attentive to the needs of elderly.. i watch a show in the mornings here, it always has the 25 wishes of Christmas every year. this is 25 different wishes granted to a group of selected people.. One lady has got a set of bunk beds for her kids, one lady asked for a new fridge for her parents, one man asked for a recliner for his mom... ALL these wishes have been granted... I think this is a wonderful thing.

To some, this is as far as they go with Christmas, it's all about what they want or get... or really HOW MUCH they can get for themselves...  People need to go back to the true meaning of Christmas.. Christ has never left Christmas..yet, so many have left Him out.... they put other things in His place, when He should be first.. He is the true meaning, it is His birthday.. I am glad He did not stay in the manger. I am glad HE was born, and then died on Calvary for us to have eternal life.
Apple pie my aunt made last year for our family Christmas
we need to keep it real this Christmas... It is wonderful to do all the decorating, baking, eating, exchanging of gifts etc.. but keep the real meaning of Christmas alive... Make it REAL TO YOU...
Isaiah 7:14:9:6 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, Counsellor, The mighty GOD, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
What comfort by Him do we win
Who made Himself the price for sin
To make us heirs of glory?
To see this Babe all innocence,
A Martyr born in our defense:
Can man forget this story? - Ben Jonson
