Thank You Lord! everyone is harried and hopeless. There is still shopping that's not done. Presents that are not wrapped...traffic jams, crowded malls, grumpy shoppers...uh, er...LOL...I'm having the most pleasant of holidays...we only have grown adults in our DON'T DO PRESENTS!!! Thank you Jesus! I avoid the Mall like the plague, at this time of the year. And focus my energy on the Reason For The Season!

If you're spiritually alive, you're going to love this! If you're spiritually dead, you won't want to read it. If you're spiritually curious, there is still hope!

Why Go To Church?

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. "I've gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all."

This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:

"I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this...They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!" When you are DOWN to nothing...God is UP to something!

Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! This is the season to thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!

All right, now that you're done reading, pass it around! I think everyone should read this! "When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, "Jesus, could you get that for me?"

    I absolutely loved that last line! It was all good, but the last line summed it up perfectly!
