Merry Christmas to one and all!!!!

Just wanted to take the time to wish all my Family,Friends and Blog readers a Merry Christmas!! I hope you all enjoy the time and memories made with your families!! Everybody debates the real day of Christmas or says we should not celebrate it,but I disagree. I think if you set your mind to celebrate the real reason of the season nothing at all is wrong with celebrating Christmas!! It's a day set aside to honor our precious Lord that came and saved our souls. Even if you don't believe in Christmas,at least acknowledge and remember to thank him on this day for coming into the world and dying so we could be forgiven. I am tired of everyone debating weather or not it's right to celebrate or not. I rejoice everyday that the Lord died for me and if their is also a day that is set aside like Christmas to double celebrate it,I am all for it. Ok enough of my preaching..lol. I just get tired of seeing people saying Christmas is pagan and stuff like that. If you celebrate it in the right and godly way nothing is wrong with it. So my last post before Christmas. May I say I hope you and your Family have a Wonderful Merry CHRISTmas!!! May God bless all of you in the coming year. Remember many things we don't know about tomorrow but we know who holds our hand! God bless you one and all!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So that is right folks two big days and Christmas will be here!!! Then on too the New Year!! Here is one of my favorite Christmas youtube videos!

Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball by Donita K.Paul Review

(Book Cover photo from Amazon.com)

I recently had a chance to read and review this book. The plot surrounds two co-workers who have never really talked to each other at work but they stumble across the same book store in the search of Christmas season Gifts. They each find two tickets to a ball in their packages when they are at home. The Characters are fun and different in the book. Nobody knows nothing or heard anything about the ball,their is no ads or places to buy tickets just this certain street of shops provides them. Simon takes Cora tickets because she isn't going and he decides to take his sister who has down syndrome. I won't spoil any of the rest of the book for you if you your going to read it. My thoughts on the books were it was alright. I think the plot could have had more added to it. Everything moves along pretty quickly. I love how it did serve as a Christian read and God was spoke of openly,but the book itself never really pulled me in with that certain touch of magic I thought it would be. Half way through you could pretty much tell what was going to happen. It was just missing a touch of that romantic magic between the two main characters.
I recieved this book free from Waterbrook publishers for my honest review

The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible Review

I was so happy to be able to get this and review it:) I have been wanting a good study bible and this one is great!! It's a nice hardback Bible to use in your life with just reading or with devotions and studies. At the beginning of each book he tells about his thoughts on each book and tells about it when it was written and key themes and verses of each book. It is the NKJV and very easy to follow along. He also gives words of different subjects to look up what the bible has to say about it. His notes on stuff are throughout the bible to help you better understand what it is saying! At the back of the book he gives more information for help with your growth as a Christian. This is a pretty good bible and I would recommend it to anyone.

I recieved this book for free for my honest opinion and review from Booksneeze.com

The Perfect Gift Movie

Me and mom caught this movie on tv awhile back and it was such a good little Christian Christmas movie:)

The Storyline:A spoiled schoolgirl,her overworked executive mother and a disillusioned young minister each receives an uplifting message about friendship, commitment, and the truest meaning of Christmas from a kind, but mysterious drifter named Jess.

It was so good,it brought tears to my eyes. The town council wanted the church to take down the Nativity in the yard and the law made them have to take it down but a bunch of people worked together and fought the city and rebuilt it after the city tore it down. It was really good to see how they all came together in the true meaning of Christmas and they each put money at the city council's table in a meeting and paid the fine for keeping the nativity up:) Really good movie!!

You can read more about the movie by clicking here!!

Yes..it is almost here!!!

Wow!!! I can't believe how fast the Christmas season is coming upon us!! I am getting a little excited:) The Christmas play was at church tonight and it was good,really showed the true meaning of what Christmas means!! Please also be in prayer for my mom she has been battling that flu mess for weeks and now her temperature has gone back up today,hopefully she will see the doctor this week! She just wants to be better by Christmas because she loves Christmas and baking and cooking and everything,so pray she gets better. Hope everyone is having a great week and talk to you later. God bless!
