                I was reading in Luke 1 26-55 where Mary , when given the news from Gabriel concerning her future , immediately was concerned. her spirit was troubled. Soon however she was worshiping the Lord with all of her heart. Verses 46 -55 show a woman thankful to the point of singing. Mary recognized the Love , Work , Greatness , Mercy, and Faithfulness of GOD!!! Thank You JESUS!!!

       Mary knew that her circumstances were about to change and that the changes were a result of the Love of GOD!!! Her life would never again be the same. She had been given Hope!!!Glory to GOD!!!

      As Christmas is upon us  I would like to wish each and every one of you a Very Merry Christmas!!! I Love you and my heart’s desire is that everyone who knows the Love of GOD will share it in this season of  Advent!!! We can all give one another the gift of Hope by sharing the Love of GOD , not only between ourselves , but with others as well!!! Others who may not fully understand what Christmas is all about.Others who need Love.  Others who need Hope!!! Others who need JESUS!!!  Amen!!!

     GOD certainly did give us a Lovely gift!!! GOD didn’t put HIS gift to us under a tree. HE put HIS gift for us on a tree!!!!!!! Thank You Almighty GOD!!!

   MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

              I was reading in Luke 2 1 – 20 where Angels found shepherds in the fields and told them that they had some Good News!!! A Saviour had been born in the city of David!!! GOD is Good!!!

    Every generation of mankind has it’s own set of unique hardships , however , I know it must have been hard for  Mary and Joseph to not be able to give birth to their child indoors in nothing other than a stable. I imagine Bethlehem was crowded beyond reason for the census , yet , a young couple  traveling , and the woman pregnant , surely was painful emotionally. I know as man to witness the pain of a loved woman can be extremely difficult at best. No room at the inn , a manger , swaddling clothes ??? A modern-day nightmare for a couple expecting who had both been visited by Angels!!! “There will be tribulation .” Thank you JESUS!!!

       What a great example as parents!!! To accept  Life on Life’s own terms is oftentimes hard to do. Joseph and Mary overcame the trials of their journey in a Glorious fashion. Praise GOD!!!

   As the CHRISTMAS season approaches I pray that each and everyone who hears these words are Blessed. GOD Loves you!!!

   ” Glory to GOD in the Highest , and on Earth Peace , Good will toward men.”

    I love you!!!!!!! Mark
