“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Continue reading

Christmas songs are on the radio. We’re playing more and more on KSWP, where I work.
I call them Christmas songs but they have absolutely nothing to do with any Christmas that I have ever experienced.

I don’t ever remember a white Christmas.
I’ve never heard sleigh bells. I’m not sure there’s a sleigh in the state of Texas.
Though songs like these are reminiscent of Christmas, I truly doubt they are appropriate for California or Florida either.
But there is one part of Christmas that is good no matter where you live.
She brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7
Go ahead and sing Jingle Bells and Deck the Halls; sing about French hens and mom kissing Santa Claus – but Christ is what Christmas is all about.
Abba, I enjoy all the songs and decorations of Christmas. But I rejoice in the Christ of Christmas. In Jesus name, YES&AMEN
It’s strange to me the things one remembers in life.

I’m not very sure that I can remember things in the right order. Continue reading
