What Ever You Do...

 Here we are; another season of giving, receiving, and sharing. Whether you call it Christmas time or the Holiday Season; it should be about the gift of love and forgiveness. I've always taught my children the real Christmas story and the tradition of gift giving. "Never ever give someone some junk just to say that you gave them a gift. Never give someone a gift to impress others. Never ever give with the expectation of receiving." 

From November thur January (the holiday season), my favorite bible passage is not the birth of Christ; but the passages that teach us to love as Christ loved. No one is perfect and we all have faults.  I know it's easier said than done. I have an ex husband and a mean coworker, so I know that love and forgiveness is easier said than done. Nevertheless as a Christian woman, it is within my power to do it. It's in your power too; just do it in the Name of Jesus. Get a song in your heart and just do it.

Merry Christmas!

Key:  And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. Colossians 3:17


Living the New Life

12Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. 14Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. 15And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
16Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. 17And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.
