I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...

Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.



Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

Greetings -

This is a blast from the past piece.  

The first syllable in CHRISTmas is CHRIST.  Indeed, it is clear to the knowers that CHRISTmas derives from the name CHRIST – Jesus, the Lord.  From my place of knowledge, it is not proven that December 25th is the actual birthday of our Lord.  But for the interest of this piece, I will not major on the minor of the precise date.  What has been proven is that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the only true and living God.

Every CHRISTmas season, we witness the perennial hustle and bustle.  People do wish lists, and ponder what gifts to purchase and for whom.  Budgets are stretched, plans are made, trips are taken, people shop ‘til they drop, and bemoan the expense of it all. Anticipation is high.  Expectation is plentiful as people eagerly engage in the excitement of CHRISTmas cheer.  We hear, “What do I get them?  Will they be pleased?  How much do I spend for each on my list?  Decisions, decisions - this is so much.  My budget is busted.  When is too much?”

For hordes, the commercial aspects of CHRISTmas have surpassed what it truly represents – the celebration of Christ, the Lord.  What did we get Jesus for CHRISTmas?  We owe Him our lives.  He is Lord of lords, and King of kings.

Did we give Him thanks?

What about total surrender to His righteous agenda?

And don’t forget faithfulness to His holy Word. You know…being doers of the full gospel of His kingdom.

How about love for Him, and our blessed Father God above all else?  Because it is in Him that we live, and move, and have our being.  You know…the air we breathe that belongs to God.

Oh yeah, and did we daily give Him obedience, praise, honor, and glory as He so rightly deserves?

What did we get Jesus for CHRISTmas?  Does He respect what we gave?

Can CHRISTmas be Merry without Christ?

Some do – do it righteous!  And for those who don’t – you can.  The Bible says, "Whosoever will…."


THIS CHRISTmas, who is on the Lord’s side?  Can I get a “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing?”

  1. Hi Sandra,

    This post asks each of us to take a moment and really consider the content of our thoughts, the depth of our words, and the direction of our life.

    What am I doing?

    Why am I doing it?

    Where am I going with these decisions?

    Giving Christ my life is the least that I can do.

    Blessings and peace.


  2. Hi MTJ -

    Thank you for visiting and for commenting.

    Your questions indeed invite ponder.

  3. Having received the GIFT of eternal life, I can but only respond with my whole heart, my whole mind, all my strength, and all my soul.

    The sacrifice God wants is an obedient heart.

    Here, Lord - here is my gift to you - me. All my trust, all my obedience, all my life.

    Thank you for CHRISTmas.


  4. Hi Sharon -

    Yes, you are certainly right, "The sacrifice God wants is an obedient heart."

    Yes, Lord, thank you for CHRISTmas.

    Praise Your holy name for our Saviour...!
