Burdened?

I think it would be selfish on my part, not to share with the
world…after such a marvelous retreat! I thank God for all that He has
done..and going to do!

Burdened?

It doesn’t take a “rocket scientist” to figure out that with today’s hectic
lifestyles, it’s easy to allow satan to bombard us with heavy burdens. If we
took the time to slow down, and…”Be still and know that I am God.”(Ps.
46:10),and remember..(Matt. 11:28-30) “Then Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all of
you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my
yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart,
and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the
burden I give you is light.” How AWESOME is this? He wants to make our
burdens light, if we will come to Him. Continue reading “Burdened?”

A Song of Blessing

This song has been such a blessing to me that I would like to share with all of you. Let’s all just sing together now.

“God is in Control”
Twila Paris

This is no time for fear
This is a time for faith and determination
Don’t lose the vision here
Carried away by emotion
Hold on to all that you hide in your heart
There is one thing that has always been true
It holds the world together

God is in control
We believe that His children will not be forsaken
God is in control
We will choose to remember and never be shaken
There is no power above or beside Him, we know
God is in control, oh God is in control

History marches on
There is a bottom line drawn across the ages
Culture can make its plan
Oh, but the line never changes
No matter how the deception may fly
There is one thing that has always been true
It will be true forever

He has never let you down
Why st Continue reading “A Song of Blessing”

Target Backing Off Ban, May Use Christmas in Ads Later This Year

Remember our article on “Celebrate the Birth of Christ with a Boycott“, by Sara, As you can see we can make a difference. Christmas is important to many of us and we want the opportunity to enjoy and leave this legacy to all other generations.

Target Backing Off Ban, May Use Christmas In Ads Later This Year

Dear

Your efforts are having a powerful effect! Our boycott of Target is working! According to the New York Times, a spokeswoman for Target said it did not intend to ban Christmas and might use Christmas in advertisements later this year! In addition, Sears is adding “Merry Christmas” signs in their stores.

And here is new evidence of anti-Christian bias: A survey done by AFA shows that 91% of TV ads ban Christmas from their advertising. We want you to help us stop this banning of Christmas. The survey included one n Continue reading “Target Backing Off Ban, May Use Christmas in Ads Later This Year”
