DANNY GOKEY-HOPE IN FRONT OF ME
Every year the Springs Preserve recycles Christmas trees. Since my kids are on a recycling kick... I decided to earn brownie points with them. If you live in the Las Vegas area, you can drop your tree of at one of the sites below until the 15th. From more details click here
I've heard from several friends that attend Canyon Ridge Christian Church that Tim Tebow will be speaking at the church March 3rd & 4th. More details to come as they are announced. You can check out Canyon Ridge's website by clicking here.
Yesterday I heard "God's Not Dead" the latest single from the Newsboys. I couldn't believe what I heard. All of a sudden I was back in the 90's listening to DC Talk. The video below explains what I mean ...........
I've watched this video several times, it's done two things for me..... 1. Made me very grateful for the blessings and people that God has placed in my life....2. Made me take a look at the "problems" in my life and realize how small they are in the grand scheme of things. Grab a couple tissues check out this video from Ben Breedlove....
Call them resolutions, call them goals... If I don't make a list of things I want to accomplish, I find myself looking back and not really doing much with the new year. Here's my 2012 list.
1. Spend more time with Vanessa. With 6 kids time is really a valuable commodity. This year I want to manage my time so that I'm spending more quality time with my wife.
2. Read. This is on my list every year, but it seems to fall to the wayside come spring. This year, reading 14 books in my goal.
3. Starting a college fund for the kids....... I need to start now if I'm gonning to send 6 kids to college!
4. Make healthy choices when it comes to eating.
One of my favorite Christmas specials airs tonight on CBS. It's not a cartoon or a Christmas classic, it will feature the stories of children whose lives have been changed by adoption.
This is a topic that comes up every year about this time, does Xmas remove Christ from Christmas?
In my opinion, no it doesn't.
In our world today it seems like we are fighting a losing battle to keep our faith in our everyday lives. Xmas, isn't something we need to be fighting against. After reading up on the topic and talking to others who have much more insight on this debate, this is what I found.
I love the message in this song. For me, it's not Christmas until I hear Casting Crowns "I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day."
My favorite Christmas song hands down is Joy Williams "Here With Us." I believe this song captures the true meaning of Christmas in a single line.... "Heaven's love reaching down to save the world." A new tradition in my home is watching the Nativity Story a couple days before Christmas to get us focused on the real meaning of Christmas. I found this video on Youtube that combines both the song and clips from the movie. Give it 4:43... and it will put you in the proper Christmas mindset.
