Today as we celebrate the birth of our Christ, my desire is to focus on Him, His goodness, and His glory. Because God came as a human, dwelt in a fleshly body, lived a perfectly sinless life, gave Himself to pay for my sins and your sins and the sins of the whole world, and offers us redemption, I will celebrate His birth today in several ways. My family and I will read the story of Jesus’ birth. We will celebrate communion together, and we’ll enjoy the treasures of family. We’ll live life fully today because Jesus came. Here are my 5 best things about knowing God ( x 2 …  I just couldn’t stop at 5 so I figured I could say 5 x 2).

Christmas Eve Gift

Christmas kiss

(This is my blog post from Christmas Eve, 2010.)

When I was a little girl, I believed in Santa. I was the last of my classmates to find out that Santa was really my mom and dad. I can still feel how defensive I became when my friends told me that there was no Santa. After all, I had been to Santa’s Village and actually seen the reindeer in Hope Valley, California!

Making the Right Choice

Posted by: | Comments (1)

busynessWe make a thousand choices every day, beginning from the first moment our eyes open.

Will I get up now?

Or will I stay in bed a little longer?

Will I drink one cup of coffee or two?

Creamer or black?

Breakfast or not?

Check my email?

Facebook?

Twitter?

Shower?

Wash my hair?

Read my Bible?

Meditate?

Exercise?

In fact, our ability to choose is one of the ways that we are made in the image of God and it is one of the things that has confounded mankind for centuries. Why would God give us the ability – and the right- to choose incorrectly? Why would God allow us to make choices that would harm us – even to the extent of choosing heaven or hell? Well, that is a theological debate for another day – or not – I’ll choose later:)

Jesus, the Healer of Broken Hearts

Posted by: | Comments (3)

broken heartIf we believe that God is purposeful in His actions, then how significant is the fact that the first words of the first message Jesus preached were, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because … He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted…”? (Luke 4:18-19)

Jesus came to heal broken hearts and not only as a side benefit; it’s one of his life purposes!  That’s good news because all of us who are in this world have experienced the pain of having our hearts broken in one way or another.  If we look at the life of Jesus in the Gospels, we find that he moves throughout his days interacting with humanity and healing broken hearts. That healing takes many expressions. Today I want to look at how Jesus healed the heart of a woman as recorded in John 4 and what that healing means for us now.
