Are you a Johna?

As 2008 comes to a close and we reflect at what 2008 had in store for us.It was a bumpy year for my family.,With my dads accident ,my nieces accident,and my sis's leukemia dig.I was once thought that God was testing us like He did Job,But now to be honest I know that thats the case.IT was a Johnna.God was calling us to Nenivah and we ran!!!!!Alright Ill put this in todays terms.God has been calling us away from the SBC for awhile now.To be honest we scared of where God was calling us.Its was different to us? Or so we thought.But after God hit us the thrid time Im like,HEY we gotta go.So we gathered up all the faith we could muster and walked through the doors of our new church.And what a blessing he Bestowed upon us!!!!!!!! and just so you know when we did what God said,The trials stopped.Coming!!!!!! Thanks for all youve done this year beining here for us!! The kind words the prayers the ment alot!!!!! Gods still working !!! Waiting to see what He has in store for 2009!!!!

just one of those foward emails

With 3 days before Christmas REMEMBER:
Jesus is Better than Santa
Santa lives at the North Pole.
JESUS is everywhere.
Santa rides in a sleigh
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.
Santa comes but once a year
JESUS is an ever present help.
Santa fills your stockings with goodies
JESUS supplies all your needs.
Santa comes down your chimney uninvited
JESUS stands at your door and knocks.. And then enters your heart.
You have to stand in line to see Santa
JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.
Santa lets you sit on his lap
JESUS lets you rest in His arms.
Santa doesn't know your name, all he can say is "Hi little boy or girl, What's your name?"
JESUS knew our name before we did. Not only does He know our name, He knows our address too. He knows our history and future and He even knows how many hairs are on our heads.
Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly
JESUS has a heart full of love.
All Santa can offer is HO HO HO
JESUS offers health, help and hope.
Santa says "You better not cry"
JESUS says "Cast all your cares on me for I care for you.
Santa's little helpers make toys
JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes and builds mansions.
Santa may make you chuckle but
JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.
While Santa puts gifts under your tree
JESUS became our gift and died on the tree.
It's obvious there is really no comparison.
We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about.
We need to put Christ back in Christmas.
Jesus is still the reason for the season.

May the Lord Bless and Watch over you and your loved ones this Christmas 2008
And may He prosper and bless the work of your hands in the New Year.

"Change the World, Don't let the World Change You! Romans 12:2"
