How my heart aches, to see loved ones searching for love and joy and contentment in the world around them that is filled with immorality, vulgarity, and disregard for other people.
But I guess that is Satan's lie. And he has blinded them and taken them for fools. But they will never admit it.
How I pray that their eyes, ears, and hearts be opened and realize that true joy, and true love comes from the One who is Love. There is no joy, there is no peace, there is no salvation apart from God.

Although this time of year brings out the best in many, it also brings out the worst as we seemingly defend our faith, yet often times in a way that is not consistent with how Jesus would respond.
With talk of Holiday Trees, and Santa Claus, and getting rid of Poinsettia's in public places because they remind people of Christmas - I pray we all are strengthened by the power and compassion of Christ - to reach out and share the love of Jesus with all those we come in contact with.
May we all represent Him well.
