  1. I think this is among the most significant info for me. And i’m glad reading your article. But want to remark on some general things, The web site style is perfect, the articles is really great : D. Good job, cheers Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.

    Best regards

  2. Very interesting topic, thanks for putting up.

    • Mind you this is an unsalvational issue. God so loved the world that He sent his only begotten Son, . . . If there’s several calendar days of the year that remind people that the Father did send His Son, then good for the Calendar, the People, the Father, & His only begotten Son, Cause He would, that NONE would perish, but, all would have everlasting life . . . God would never hate an event, or day, that causes people world wide to acknowledge His own love He has for us . . .

      PS By the tone of your question, I’m surprised that you didn’t end your question with Bah Hum Bug . . .

  3. really liked your post, keep them coming

    • What a great observation about the gal I’ve always thought has gotten a bad rap. I like Martha. I can relate to Martha. I understand Martha. And too often .I am like Martha. But the even greater observation here is what you point out about our wonderful and loving Heavenly Father .’He doesn’t just see us when we’re don’ts. He sees us when we’re do’s.’ Praise God! I love that about Him! Today I feel encouraged as a parent. It’s so easy sometimes to only focus on where I feel my kids are staggering or flat out failing, but if I follow our PERFECT Heavenly Father’s parenting skills .we can see that while He definitely deals with our shortcomings, He also ENCOURAGES us toward His more perfect way for us. When we succeed, Who is there with a big smile on His face and a loving word of praise? Yep, our Abba Daddy. Who WOULDN’T want to get up and keep trying with love like that cheering us on? Especially for a perfectionist, it’s easy to dwell on my faults and mistakes, but my Father sees me as a do’, and knowing He does makes me want to try again and please Him all the more. Thanks for the encuragement to forget what lies behind and press toward the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus’. To accept and embrace the grace and encouragement from our wonderful God is a gift indeed. Bless you today, Laurie! Thanks again! p.s. Martha is on my list of people I can’t wait to meet in Heaven. I bet we’ll find her sitting at Jesus’ feet.

  4. Some genuinely prize blog posts on this internet site , saved to favorites .

    • Christmas is a collection of pagan festivals that the church tried to hijack and failed!! They therefore celebrate a pagan festival and surely if Jesus existed he would be repelled by that!!But what of Jesus himself?There is not one single mention of Jesus in the entire Roman record that is right not one!!! At the same time as he was supposed to have been around there were a number of Jews claiming to be the messiah all of whom are well recorded!!He was supposed to have been a huge problem to the Romans and produced wonderful miracles but still not one contemporary record?Even the bible mentions of him like all other references were not written until many years after his supposed death!!At best he was an amalgam of those others!!
