Twas the Month before Christmas

Twas the month before Christmas
When all through our land,
 Not a Christian was praying
 Nor taking a stand.
 Why the PC Police had taken away
 The reason for Christmas – no one could say.
 The children were told by their schools not to sing
 About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.
 It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say
  December 25th is just a ‘ Holiday’.
  Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit
 Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!
  CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod
  Something was changing, something quite odd!
  Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
  In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.
  As Targets were hanging their trees upside down
  At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was no where to be found.
  At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears
  You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.
  Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty
  Are words that were used to intimidate me.
  Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
  On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!
  At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter
  To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
  And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith
  Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace
 The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
  The reason for the season, stopped before it started.
So as you celebrate ‘Winter Break’ under your ‘Dream Tree’
  Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.
  Choose your words carefully, choose what you say
  Shout
MERRY CHRISTMAS
 ,
not Happy Holiday!
 Please, all Christians join together and
   wish everyone you meet
MERRY CHRISTMAS
 
 Christ is The Reason’ for the Christ-mas Season!

The Beauty Of A Thankful Heart

We approach Thanksgiving Day as a day set aside to be thankful. The Pilgrims, who started Thanksgiving Day, had much to to thankful that first year of being in Plymouth.
Thankfulness and gratitude are related and go way back in history, as the attached message will show.

The attached message also helps you understand how a thankful heart pleases God and helps you.

Happy Thanksgiving Day and may every day be a day of Thanksgiving for each of us.

The Beauty Of A Thankful Heart – Luke 17 11-19
