Great blog and merry christmas!!! Charlie Brown is such a great show! I remember watching it when I was young !!!

God bless!

Merry Christmas!!
It is unfortunate that we have reached this part of Revelations on Christmas Day. What struck me most is that even though they went through all these plagues the people did not repent. It struck me but did not surprise me because people have very fragile minds and generally not very smart. We are capable of being more intuitive but we generally choose not to be. There is a kind of sick pleasure that one gets when one is suffering. People who are depressed are comfortable feeling bad and if they feel good they feel uncomfortable. They do not do or want to do anything to get out of that state.
Any way, today is a day to remember the gift of Jesus and to be exhilarated about it! In fact everyday should remind us of his gift. We live because of Jesus. There are so many levels to this statement that I don't have the time to get into it now. We need Jesus all the time.

Merry Christmas Mike, to your family and to all. Thank you. This is my first year and already I am looking for next year.

Although it is hard to read Revelations, especially on Christmas Day, today is a reminder of God reaching us with His peace, love, mercy and compassion, waiting for us to embrace Him.

Luke 2: 13

"Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests".

Psalm 144:3-4 stood out for me: "O LORD, what are mortals that you should notice us, mere humans that you should care for us? For we are like a breath of air; our days are like a passing shadow."

I really try the best I can to invest wisely into Gods ways. And I have to say that it really helps me to invest in my relationship with God. I emmidiatly know when I'm 'off path' so to speak. It not necerally means that I'm doing godless and sinfull things, but I kind of 'fade away' for a bit and then there's moment that I think "God, where are you?". But I realize that He's always there, but I'm the one that turns away for a bit. I'm not going to say what I think other people should invest into, I just know for myself what I have to invest into, to feel that I'm living 100%. I need to invest in my relationship with God, that's what keeps me going. Just like investing in my relationship with my husband and my son. It's a 24/7 'job'. Got to be working on it all the time to make it work. But I get soooooooooooo much in return ...
