A Bundle of Joy

Look at darling, Kenlee. Her little bib says “What Santa doesn’t bring me Grandma will.” Well, one can guess what happened. This is Sherrie and Bert’s first granddaughter and Tammy (Needles), great niece. Also, Kenlee’s first Christmas.

His Name is Jesus

Almighty God, you have given us Jesus, Your only-begotten Son through a pure virgin to take away our sins and give us a new nature. We are forever eternal grateful for Your gift to us.

May we, that have been born again, celebrate You and embrace this gift of love by being renewed by Your Holy Spirit, through our LORD JESUS CHRIST this Holy Day as we honor Your Birth.
By Him and in Him, Almighty God, now and forever we pray, Amen

Merry Christmas,
Gary and Sara

Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house
Not a creature was praying, not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed,
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with a baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter,

I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to my window I flew like a flash
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!


My Father’s Rich You Know

Being that it is Thanksgiving I especially give thanks to a heavenly
Father who always has time to listen and who has surrounded me with so
many wonderful friends on the Daily Lily. I give thanks for parents
who were always there for us.

My Father’s rich you know and I’ll tell you why? He spends hours
playing softball with me. He shows me how to hold a bat. He yells,
Run Fast. See my Father takes time with me, because my
Father’s rich you know.
My Father spends hours during the summer at the river with me. He
throws me in and listens to me giggle with glee. He yells, Swim
and then yells, Let’s do it again.
My Father also shows me how to fish. He then has me put my own bait on
the hook and yells, You can do it. See my Father has time to
spend with me, because he’s rich you know.
My Father spends hours playing games (board games, cards, and bad
mitten) with me a Continue reading “My Father’s Rich You Know”

Taken from: Q&A’s for Billy Graham

As I read this Q&A today By Dr. Billy Graham for part of my daily devotion I thought this goes right along with our (GN’S) Part I Passivity and Part II Obedience

“Why is it so hard to be a Christian and do what’s right?” Read Billy Graham’s answer

One reason is because you and I are part of a much larger spiritual battle — a cosmic battle between God and the devil. The Bible warns, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against … the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).

Never forget: Satan is absolutely opposed to God, and his single goal is to stop God’s work — including His work in our lives. When we come to Christ, we change sides (as it were), moving our citizenship from Satan’s kingdom to God’s Kingdom. Now our goal is to follow Christ and become more like Him.

But this doesn’t mean Satan is going to leave us alone! Continue reading “Taken from: Q&A’s for Billy Graham”
