Worthy Of Celebration




Worthy Of  Celebration 


I was asking myself this question today.  Why is the celebrating of Jesus being born biblical?

Christmas is one of the greatest spiritual events that has ever taken place in history.  God himself opened the heavens and sent  a celebrating band of angels.  These angels  I'm sure sang though the bible does not say so.  

One of the reasons I believe they sang is that some angels have musical instrument in their bodies.   The bible says that they rejoiced and many times we too will gather to rejoice together on joyous occasions.  Most the time rejoicing includes music and singing.
Heaven is full of music, singing and praising, so even if they did not sing.  To think they may have  would not be unreasonable, knowing that God himself put musical instruments in some angles bodies.  They were living instruments of music.

God chose to have a great event to announce the Christ Child being born.  He did not have to open the skies of heavens glories to reveal something wonderful to lowly shepherds.  He did not have to let them witness the rejoicing of heavenly angels.  He could have chose some other way, but it was a celebration.

He chose to tell us of the celebration in His Word.  God made sure that Christ's birthday was recognized as a great day, and what a great day it still is.  God chose to make it part of His holy Word.   The historical occurrence has lead many people in the dark spiritually to the light of the world, (Jesus our Savoiur.)

Just as the shepherds watched their sheep in a dark night, 
God's heavenly angels filled the dark skies with light.  
God then opened their eyes to fully understand.  
That God, that night had provided himself a lamb.

The occasion called for something special from heaven's bright land.  A celebration of God's promise of a Saviour fulfilled.
Jesus'  birth is totally worthy of celebration.  With rejoicing, singing and praising God.

 Genesis 22:8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb 

(This is old testament prophecy of God providing the lamb of God, His Son,
as the sacrifice for our sin.)

Christmas Happens



Christmas Happens


It may be hard for us to comprehend, but we can't earn our way to heaven by how good we are.  Salvation cannot be earned but rather is a gift given to us.  We do not deserve salvation, nor can we find it on our own.  God saves us because He wants to, because He loves people and because it brings glory to His name.

He has offered a gift.  This gift was delivered through our Saviour...who was born on Christmas day.  Then when He grew He died on a cruel cross.  He took our sins upon himself and became sin for us.  Emmanuel died for us. 

Christmas Is - Christ born giving hope to a hopeless world. The peace of God born in the heart of every believer.  Believe upon he Lord Jesus Christ and salvation will be born in you.  This is the gift of Christmas.  

Jesus is the light of the world and the light in our hearts when we trust him and accept the gift He offers to all that will receive.  

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, believing, will receive the gift of salvation that comes through Christ alone.

Christmas happened when Jesus was born and Christmas happens when Jesus is born in your heart.
Christmas happens because He lives evermore.

"I AM" Here




"I AM"  Here

She sat by her window one early morn;
She had lived in the silence too long.
Heartbroken, alone and on her own;
It just seemed everything had gone wrong.

But in the frost of the window appeared;
It seemed like a dream , but oh so true.
Like God himself had written with love;
The words "I AM"  in the drips of the dew.

Could it be He was  saying some wonderful thing?
Like,  "I Am"  your God and I'm here for you."
"Never alone, never alone , dear one;
I gave a reminder, here in the dew.'

"I Am" your God, "I Am' your best  friend;"
"I  Am" your heavenly Father  above."
"I  Am "  always here and hear your prayers;"
"I  AM" faithful, "I Am"  just,  "I Am" love."
-------------

Could it be in times of grief and sorrow;
God would comfort while we are comfortless?
When no human words or act could console;
The great "I Am" can speak great things to us.

Could it be, when it seems we've been forsaken;
That God himself would send a special hug:
Upon a frozen window dripping dew?
Just to say," I AM"  here and I love you?"

Susan Y Nikitenko

Hebrews 13:5b
I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

The  words "I Am" on the window story --- is the true life testimony of a lady from our church.

God Came Down To Us - Acronym






God Came Down To Us 


Jesus, the Son of God was born;
The Great I Am Came From Heaven.
New to a world that needed Him;
Born so we could be forgiven.

King of kings, born an infant boy;
Came upon a star filled night.
 From heavens throne, to a manger;
Heaven brought forth both Truth and light.

Upon that blest Christmas dawning;
That most precious moment, NOEL.
Holy child, God's  gift to the world;
Night, turned to day, Emanuel.

Chorus:
God Came Down To Us, No-o-el;
Night, turned to day, Emanuel.
Upon that blest Christmas dawning;
God Came Down To Us, No-o-el.

Lowly Shepherds - Corrections


Lowly Shepherds 



Lowly shepherds are we, alone on this night;
Suddenly we see a heavenly light.
Then surprisingly a voice from heaven speaks;
As our hearts grow fearful, our knees grow week.

"Gabriel we hear your trumpet loud and clear."
 "We see God's angels in brightness appear."
Looking toward heaven astounded and awed;
At the message sent to us from our God.

Trembling,  in the presence of angels, we fear;
We know somehow our God is very near.
----
"Fear Not, we bring you good tidings of joy.
The birth of God's own Son, an infant boy."
-----
"Gabriel we hear your trumpet loud and clear."
Our hearts now rejoice, for our Savior is here.
We are lowly shepherds,
lowly shepherds in the night.
 God's love has spoken;
to lowly shepherds in the night.

Lowly shepherds are we, alone on this night;
Suddenly we see a heavenly light.
Our eyes opened our hearts ready to hear;
Let us now go worship Him on this holy night.

 "Gabriel we hear your trumpet loud and clear."
Our hearts now rejoice, for our Savior is here.
We are lowly shepherds,
lowly shepherds  in the night.
 God's love has spoken;
to lowly shepherds in the night.

Just A Few Random Thoughts Today

Just A Few  Random Thoughts Today


I woke up this morning looking out my window.  I opened my eyes to see a beautiful reddish pink sky. There is an old saying that instantly came to my mind.  Whether it be an old wives tale I do not know.  The saying goes like this and may be commonly known by many. 

"Red in the morning sailors warning.  Red at night sailors delight." 
My thoughts  are that if we see the red sky in the morning we should be alerted to bad weather  approaching.   

Now as I look out my window I see a beautiful sun shining day and I'm telling myself  I  need to get out and walk and try avoiding any more extra fluff .    After our Thanksgiving meal  yesterday.  I have decided to start my New Year's resolution early.

I've done some extra setting lately because of sewing and I don't want the fluff  to take me over. 

  You know,  life at my age has taught me many things and one of them is about losing weight and gaining it back.  You start out as an hour glass. Then one day you figure out you're a pear.  Then you lose weight and regain your hour glass shape, then you gain back and you're a pear  again. This process goes on like this .. hour glass, pear, hour glass, pear, hour glass, pear,  PUMPKIN.    For the first time you're a  pumpkin.  Well just to let you know I'm very close to the pumpkin stage and it's very hard to change after you get there. 

This was the closest illustration I could think of if I were to compare myself to a pumpkin.  Especially when I'm all dressed up in orange to go to a Massillon Tiger Game.  If I were to go to a game on Halloween night- all  I'd have to do is put on orange and it's an instant costume.... A  PUMPKIN. 

Someone said to me just tonight winning happens with little gains... and my response was sometimes  losing comes with little gains too.  If it's gaining weight back a little bit at a time -  In this case I would rather lose than gain.

Somebody To Adore 2 - An Added Verse And Different Background.



Somebody To Adore


Somebody Great,
Somebody Wonderful,
Somebody Marvelous,
Somebody To Adore,
He is the Way, the Truth, and the Light;
Just like the Christmas star glowing bright;
Leading The Way,  Til' That Silent Night.

Somebody Great,
Somebody Wonderful,
Somebody Marvelous,
Somebody To Adore,
He was born to the Virgin Mary;
He was Christ but yet a baby;
God in human flesh, how can it be?

Somebody Great,
Somebody Wonderful,
Somebody Marvelous,
Somebody To Adore,
Was born to us, on that first Christmas;
His love shines forever glorious.
Because God So loves each one of us;

Somebody Great,
Somebody Wonderful,
Somebody Marvelous,
Somebody to adore.

He was part of a vast  master plan:
That would bring salvation to all man.
King Of King, Lord of Lord, The Great I Am.

So when you celebrate the season;
You already know that He's the Reason.
He is God's only begotten Son.

And HE is:

Somebody Great,
Somebody Wonderful,
Somebody Marvelous,
Somebody To Adore...

I Thank God For You



I Thank God For You


Another year, another day, another moment, without delay;
Let us give thanks unto the Lord our God for all He's given us.
Oh how often  we do forget,  just how good our God has been;
In providing us a home of love and gentle tenderness.

I know sometimes days go wrong and things don't  always go  our way;
but I can say that I love you in that good old fashioned way.
I know life hasn't always been perfect,  but what I feel  for you is real;
So if you haven't heard it enough,  know this, I thank God for you today.

Though we've had to travel some  rough roads in this life together;
Though we've  had hurdles that were just plain hard to get over.
Forgiveness has lead us to higher ground, by The grace of our Lord.
Love has lead us through , not by chance, nor by any four leaf clover.

Another year, another day, another moment, without delay;
Let us give thanks unto the Lord our God for all He's given us.
Let us remember the many years we reared with love and care;
Our two little girls, sometimes with giggles, sometimes with fuss.

Now that our children are grown, are  married and out on their own;
I thank the Lord I have you in my life and that I am your wife.
May I never let a day go by without saying thank-you;
For you being you, A man of honor, who fulfils  my life.

I Thank God For You.

There's A Little Bit Of Heaven In My Heart


There's A Little Bit Of Heaven In My Heart


There's a little bit of heaven in my heart;
A little bit of heaven in my heart.
Cause He speaks with me,  abides within;
I sing with joy and whistlin'.
Cause there's a little bit heaven in my heart.

Jesus is the Joy of my salvation;
He 's  my rock and my  celebration.
 I praise His name because He loves us so.

There's a little bit of heaven in my heart;
A little bit of heaven in my heart.
For His Spirit so sweet,  comforts within;
 I sing with joy and whistlin'.
Cause there's a little bit heaven in my heart.

Jesus is the joy of my salvation;
He 's  my rock and my  celebration.
 I praise His name because He loves us so.

Happy Praise Song

Scarecrows - Rebuilding And Restoring

Rebuilding And Restoring


Talk about withering storms.  Poor little fellas, year after year I have put them outside and by the time I bring them in .. . they are literally losing their straw heads.  Not only are they loosing heads they are losing straw arms.  Every year I put them away and then pull them out again, they have been faithful but they have been through allot.   Not only did they need rebuilt, but this is the first year I had to include a makeover for each one.  They were just plain faded and needed hair transplants.

If you haven't guessed yet, They are the scarecrows I put out in my gardens every year.  I guess I could of bought new ones.. but no, thrifty I must be.  So I pulled out the glue gun, the wire, extra raffia ,  the paint, the buttons and orange sparkles and started rebuilding.  I was able to get two done so far.

I gave them special care though they will never be perfect,  two of them  are standing outside, with sparkly cheeks.  Ready for all kinds of weather and ready to do their job scaring off crows.  All the while making the season a brighter place.

I decided to use these straw trimmed  scarecrows  to talk about the storms we go through in life. The times that our faith is tried and our joy lost.

The storms of life, like our problems, or hardship.  Sometimes they can leave us feeling broken and in some cases not just feeling broken, but literally broken mentally and spiritually.  It seems when a person goes through his hardest blows in life, is when friends tend to forsake, thinking, " You're not as strong as I thought you were."  Then one day, sad to say, their storms blow and they find out they weren't that strong either, none of us  have arrived spiritually.  We are always learning about God and about ourselves through both good and bad.

I think of John the Baptist, after a lifelong faithfulness,  finding himself in a prison questioning if Jesus was who He said He was.  He was questioning his whole life's work.  Before his beheading, Christ sent messengers to assure him He was the Christ.

 John  was martyred for the cause of Christ.  Know for sure,  John met God on  that day and was given a crown.  He was instantly whole and joyful  in the presence of God in heavens bright land.  The bible describes John the Baptist as the greatest man who was born of  women.

Luke  7:28a
For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: (KJV)

Now our hardships may not be the kind that John had to go through, because life brings different people, through different  problems.  Life always has difficulties that we must wither and we have choices through those difficulties.  The biggest way to overcome  is believe God and trust in His grace. Let him rebuild our broken hearts as we trust him through our storm.

God uses people in different places in life.  He has made us especially for the place He wants us to be. 
The place that God wants us to be , is the  place where we can shine the brightest.  Some problems we face are simply because we are out of God's will.  God sometimes will direct us back to where we need to be by presenting us with difficulties. (chastisement)  The bible teaches us that life WILL have problems ... Job 5:7 Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.

Some problems are not because of chastisement but have a purpose far greater than we may ever know.  All the biblical  prophets  went through problems that God has used to teach us some of life's greatest spiritual lessons. The examples are too many to mention them all.  Job comes to mind as one of the greatest examples of undeserved suffering.  If you read  to the end you'll find  God restores and rebuilds Job's life.

Sometimes our problems are designed to get us ready for what God has for us next.  God will sometimes strengthen us for a greater responsibility.  The problems are there in order to change us for a greater purpose. 

The most important thing to remember through life's storms is to remember Jesus calms the storms,  he rebuilds, he restores.   Praising him and trusting him as Paul and Silas did in the prison house.  God was so moved by the praise that He broke down the prison walls.

Act  16:25
 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

The bible is full of problems overcome by Christians who remained faithful  and joyful in the things of the Lord.  No matter what if we are His children heaven awaits us and everlasting joy is our inheritance.

Father, help us to trust you and stay faithful through life's difficulties.  Put a song in our hearts and praise upon our lip.  Let your presence shine through our lives even through life's tears and sorrows.
Use our lives' to touch others in a way that will make a true difference for righteousness sake and the cause of Christ.. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, Amen 

I still have several scarecrows to rebuild and I'm planning where to place each one.   Hopefully,
these guys will remind us that life gives us problems, but we have a God who is molding our hearts and lives as we love and trust him.   He has a purpose that  we may never know until we set by his side in heavenly places.

If Jesus Stopped By The White House


If Jesus Stopped By The White House


I wonder what they would do, don't you?
If Jesus stopped by the White House?
Would they celebrate, give Him embrace?
Or would they be quiet like a mouse?

Would they make it a big deal, on capitol hill;
If Jesus would speak plainly His Word?
About sin and  shame, of casting out His name;
Would they be angry, would they be stirred?

Would they think He was great or hesitate?
When He speaks of the sin we've allowed?
Would He be so greeted, with cheers, be revered?
Would He draw attention from the crowds?

Long,  long ago, He was rejected and torn:
They platted the thorns placed on His head;
He was not awed ; or offered applause;
They did not love Him or what He said.

Do you think He would say it's okay;
If a baby were aborted that day?
Or say it doesn't matter anymore;
If you are straight or decide to be gay?

Would He call people vipers and hypocrites ?
Or would He go for the popular vote?
Would He be  mocked, would He be defeated?
Would they actually call him a goat?

Would they haul him away,  if He bowed to pray?
If He warned them of coming Judgment?
Because Our Nation is calling evil good.
With smiles at their wins and won't repent.

God says, repent, from the pages of scripture;
God is the same God of yesterday.
He still hates sin, and pronounces to all;
"I am still God, one day, I will repay."

Sin will always be sin, in the eyes of God;
He says continue no longer therein.
He still uses the preachers to cry repent;
Like Noah,  But who listened to him?

None of them great, but greeted with hate;
Not awed, nor revered, nor shown any care.
Because the sermon , has no happy words;
They would do the same if Jesus were there.

He's Busy Rearranging


He's Busy Rearranging 


Praise the Lord,  God loves you and God loves me.
 He has a purpose for eternity.
 I believed, I received, by His grace;
He made a way and now I'm saved.

My God  is busy rearranging me;
Into the person  he wants me to be.
He's finishing the work he has begun;
Conforming  me  into the image of His Son.

When we trusted in Christ, we saw the light;
And In Jesus we have eternal life.
He paid the price for our sin with His blood;
Because Calvary was all about love.

He's busy rearranging you and me;
He's rearranging, doing the changing.
He has a plan and purpose for each one;
That our lives may glorify His Son.

When we obey, follow the narrow way;
And praise Him for each and every day.
He will lead through paths of righteousness.
By still waters we'll know His graciousness.

He will restore us,  He will uphold us;
Because His mercy is continuous.
His blessings reside again and again;
Upon all those, that put their trust in Him.

When we trusted in Christ, we saw the light;
And In Jesus we have eternal life.
He paid the price for our sin with His blood;
Because Calvary was all about love.

He's busy rearranging you and me;
He's rearranging, doing the changing.
He has a plan and purpose for each one;
That our lives may glorify His Son.

For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

The Rebuilder



The Rebuilder

Help me to praise you Lord, through my tears.
Help me praise you Lord, through my fears.
Give me confidence to go forward;
Never looking back but going onward.

Put the comfort in me to comfort;
Not me but you, not human effort.
Put the joy in me, that comes from thee;
'Cause you are the Captain of our sea.

Direct my paths, direct my way Lord.
For the right place for me in this world.
With  my hands and  heart  more than willing;
Let your grace lead me , not mere feelings.

In your will is where we need to be;
Not out forming our own destiny.
I seek your will, your purpose for me;
Within this life that you have given me.

Help me to see those unspoken needs;
In the hearts of others around me.
That I may perceive, in love believe;
That your wisdom will be what leads me.

Help me to speak  when you have spoken;
That I may help the weak and broken.
'Cause you are the rebuilder Lord
Of the broken people in this world.

 Mark 2:17 
When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole
 have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, 
but sinners to repentance.

Sorrowing



Sorrowing

Tears fall like rain, because you have gone;
Away in the arms of angels, to heaven on high.
We  know that your pain is no longer;
But it's still so hard, just to say goodbye.

We  hope that you are comforted;
In the arms of Jesus, Our Saviour and friend.
We  know that in His presence is peace;
No sorrow, nor pain, nor death ever again.

Our hearts are stricken, our sorrow is deep;
We will miss you. We will never forget you.
Your life  will be a stamp upon our thoughts.
A memory cherished and everyday new.

We will love you always and thank the Lord;
Remembering your smiles and when you cried.
Thank God, for each moment we spent with you.
In Him,  we know it is never good-bye.

1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Let Not My Branch Lay Barren Lord - Corrected

Autumn Poem Poster

Let Not My Branch Lay Barren Lord


Oh Lord, May I abide in you;
May my life bear lasting fruit.
Forgive my heart, let me not doubt;
I can do all things in you.

Like the joy of a summers morn;
A field filled with sweet new corn;
I know that joyful we will be.
If we will abide in thee.

There's faith that makes the weakest strong;
Like a mustard seed so small.
In Christ we grow and learn and be;
While abiding constantly.

Let not my branch lay barren Lord;
Fill my baskets with  your peace;
Fill my barns with fruits of blessing;
Your righteousness my increase.

I pray my fields do not lay waste;
My hands not labor in vain.
Fill my arms with fruit from the fields;
Lest my tears fall like Autumn rains.

No greater love we've ever known;
Than the love you've gladly shown.
Like a vine filled with pleasant  blooms;
Show me how to love like you.

No greater love, no greater love, than we have ever known.
No greater love than the love you've gladly shown.
Like a vine filled with fruits of your Spirit;
Show me how to love you Lord,
Show me how to love like you.

You Don't Wanna Go There




You Don't Wanna  Go There

You don't wanna  go there,
Don't wanna  go there;
Sin will take you farther than you want to go.

You don't wanna  go there,
Don't wanna go there;
Sin's price is much greater that you want to know.

Waiting to take your foot;
In the spider's snare.
Sin will trap you in its lies, sometimes by surprise.

You don't wanna  go there,
Don't wanna go there;
Hurry, block those eyes, lovin' sin is not wise.

It will wrap you tightly;
It will suck you dry.
Hurry, resist and run, cause the devil is sly.

'Cause The devil's delight;
Is to watch you fight.
When you're already strung up in His lies.

You don't wanna  go there,
Don't wanna  go there;
Regrets  and sorrows  will be your tomorrows.

A very sticky web;
Awaits the wandering one.
Sin will take you farther than you want to go.

Jeremiah 5:26
For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.

Hands Should Please God - Acrostic - Corrections





Hands Should Please God
(Acrostic)

Hands say allot about someone, by what they do each day.
Are they serving righteousness in the choices that are made?
Not using them to hurt or steal, to undermine God's will.
Do they serve others with God's love and  motives  that are real?
Sincerity often is seen in what our hands  are used to do.
Some showing acts of kindness or signing "I Love You".
Hands can be used to comfort, wiping away someones tear.
Or be slammed to a table causing confusion or fear.
Unruly they can be when anger rules within the heart.
Loud in their doings, guided by someone not thinking smart.
Digging deep the ditches of sin, living the devil's part.
People are given hands to serve the Lord, to build, to bless.
Loving with gentleness, encourage with thoughtfulness.
Ease the pain of others by aiding them in a time of need.
Always ready  to be extended, not moved by greed.
Somehow hands seem to speak without saying one single word;
Emotions, seem to be noticed and our hands can be heard.
Good works are often something hands can do so naturally.
Only if done for the Lord, will live eternally.
Do with hands the work of love, with joy and faithful be.
        Because hands were made to serve the Lord
            with love and dignity.

Proverbs 31:10-

[10] Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
[11] The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
[12] She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
[13] She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
[14] She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
[15] She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
[16] She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
[17] She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
[18] She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
[19] She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
[20] She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
[21] She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
[22] She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
[23] Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
[24] She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
[25] Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
[26] She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
[27] She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
[28] Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
[29] Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
[30] Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
[31] Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

I Love You
