Is It Time to Hit the Panic Button?

Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests (Luke 2:14 NIV). It’s hard to believe how Christmas creeps up on us faster and faster as time goes by. Last year if our 16-year-old hadn’t pulled out the Christmas tree, we probably wouldn’t have had one. She began unpacking the decorations and her brother joined in. They played Christmas music as they hung the ornaments, garland and lights. It was starting {Read More}

3 Gifts of Peace

This time of year, we spend a lot of time thinking about gifts: what we will give our friends and loved ones, what we want to get, and what Christmas is all about – God’s gift of a Savior. Today I want you to think about another gift – the gift of peace. We talk about peace a lot during the holidays with sayings such as, “Let there be peace on earth.” But I’m talking about peace within us: freedom {Read More}

Finding Peace through Prayer

I can have a visionary mind at times looking frequently {Read More}

The 1946 movie It’s a Wonderful Life came out as the Second World War was ending and everyone needed a feel-good story. Produced in black and white (and colored later), it didn’t make much of a splash at the time, but it has become an enduring classic, played on many TV channels at Christmas and ranking 24th on an internet movie site’s survey of the best movies of all time. That is all the more remarkable because all the movies {Read More}

I Can Learn to Pray by Holly Hawkins Shivers

* Affiliate links included. “Now I lay me down to sleep…”  Do you remember the rote prayer we learned as children?  Or maybe you taught your children, “God is great, God is good. Let us thank Him for our food.”  There is nothing wrong with teaching a child those simple prayers, but as our children get older we want to teach them how to talk to God about their everyday problems and give Him thanksgiving for the things He is {Read More}

Nativity Alive: Immanuel — God with Us

On Christmas Day, place the baby Jesus in your Nativity to complete the group of Nativity figurines and celebrate that, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11) In this beautiful passage proclaimed by the angel, the Baby Jesus is given three names: Savior, Christ, Lord, meaning:  Deliverer, Anointed, Having Authority.

The Perfect Motive

Merry Christmas! “Who can add to Christmas? The perfect motive is that God so loved the world. 
The perfect gift is that He gave His only Son.

The reward of faith is that you shall have everlasting life.” Corrie ten Boom “Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.”
