Gateway to Christmas...

The days are going by so fast.  Thanksgiving was fun.  We had guests: an elderly couple from our church  plus Jim's son and his family: a wife and three red-headed girls.  I plan on posting them in the picture. 

Since the girls are active, I needed something for them to do: so we brought out the Christmas tree; and they decorated it.  It didn't take them as long as I would have liked, but they were basically well behaved.  It was ninety degrees here, so I suppose we could have put up the swimming pool and they would have liked that. 

Anyway, dinner was good, and we enjoyed each other's company.

But that wasn't what Thanksgiving was about.  I am thankful.  I am more blessed than I have a right to be.  God should have killed me years ago when I was one of the chief sinners.  But He didn't.  He gave me many chances, and eventually accepted my plea for forgiveness and made me one of His own. 

So every year He gives us this special time: Thanksgiving, my birthday, and Christmas.  All in a bundle.  He reminds me to be thankful for all He has done for me and me alone.  It is a kind of special time between me and Him.  A time for me to think about all He has done for me in the latter years of my life after it started out so wrong.  This year I passed the half-way mark.  I have been a Christian for longer than I was a sinner.  Thank You, Jesus!  He has been SO good to me.  He will be good to you too, if you should decide to give Him your life.  You can say a simple prayer, something like this:  "Jesus, please take my life and show me how to live for you.  I repent of my sins and ask for your forgiveness for them.  I want to be a Christian and follow You the rest of my life. Amen."  So simple... why do people find it so difficult?

People find it difficult because of their carnality or the past I know for one it was difficult for me because I blamed God for everything I didn't think I would serve a God who kills ect...but two months ago I realized that I wasn't really serving him and I asked him to give me a clean slate open the eyes of my heart and see what he sees in me. I still am a sinner but I feel a change coming on in my life! I think a lot of people sin then they pay for their sins in a way and want to blame God that is a good question
