Celebrating the Birth of Christ

December has been full of very special memories. Christmas Conference, playing bells at a beautiful historical church, caroling, two candle-light services in one evening, family gift giving, games, meals together, favorite videos and Christmas lights. What a blessing to spend time together!

Here were some highlights from a series of messages I recently heard from Jamie Lash:

  • Hope and energy run on parallel tracks.
  • You can be wrong. Challenge your assumptions!
  • If you believe it’s impossible, you will not be creative. (For example the titanic could have unloaded people onto nearby icebergs.)
  • Overcome defeating thoughts by identifying the lie you believe and replacing it with the truth.
  • There are solutions, you just may not be in a place where you can see them right now.

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and draw closer to the Lord in 2016!

    FAMILIA STADDON: USTEDES SIGUEN SIENDO POBRES EN ESPIRITU, DAN PENA, DICEN AMAR A DIOS PERO CON SUS HECHOS LO NIEGAN. SAN MARCOS CAPITULO 7,VERSICULOS 6,7,8 Y 9. LEAN ATENTAMENTE LA PALABRA DE DIOS, PORQUE SIGUEN EN LA MENTIRA NAVIDEÑA? FESTEJAR EL CUMPLEAÑOS DE JESUS NO ES BIBLICO, NO NACIO EL 25/12, ¿ACASO ESTHER TU LEISTES EL VERSICULO DONDE DICE EL DIA QUE NACIO? SOLO ESPERAMOS QUE EN ESTE NUEVO AÑO QUE SE ACERCA, DIOS LOS ILUMINE PARA QUE PUEDAN SALIR DE ESTA IDOLATRIA DE FESTEJAR FIESTAS PAGANAS COMO LA QUE USTEDES FESTEJAN TODOS LOS 25 DE DICIEMBRE, SI PODES CONTESTARME CON LA VERDAD BIBLICA ESPERO QUE LO PUEDAS HACER, JESUS VIENE PRONTO, SEÑALES HAY, SI SE ESTAN PREPARANDO PARA SER PARTE DE LA ESPOSA DEL SEÑOR, ¿PORQUE ANDAN EN MENTIRAS? ¿NO CREES TU EN LA PALABRA DE DIOS? ¿O CREES QUE SE OLVIDARON DE ALGO’¿SI HUBIERA SIDO IMPORTANTE FESTEJAR EL NACIMIENTO, DIOS LO HUBIERA MANDADO A ESCRIBIR NO TE PARECE? ¿O USTEDES CREEN QUE TIENEN LA RAZON? NO TENTEIS A DIOS, MAS BIEN ANDAD POR EL BUEN CAMINO. ESPERO TU PRONTA RESPUESTA CON VERDADES BIBLICAS.

    God has definitely been gracious to allow us this wonderful Christmas together. We praise Him for the good traveling weather, plenty of good food and good cooks, good time renewing friendships with church families and IBLP staff, and ideal accommodations for all 15 of us! Also we have enjoyed getting to know Kendalyn’s sister, Alieta, better.
