Have great times, but keep in mind the reason for Christmas

His name is Jesus! Let’s all celebrate Christmas with Jesus in mind this season. Jesus Christ is born.

“Behold a virgin is with child and shall bring forth a son and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted as God with us. Matthew 1:23.

It’s the greatest celebration f all. It’s a time to celebrate with family and friends, sharing lots of love and happiness.

Presents are nice, but most important is that Jesus came into this world as a baby, lying in a manger and then died on a cross to save us from our sins. He arose on the third day.

Jesus is coming agin, and it won’t be long. Get ready! What a day that will be.

It’s great to start your day with Jesuss, because He is someone who cares. Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you. He watches over you.

As you celebrate Christmas, remember to have some wonderful times. Enjoy your family most of all. Show lots of love and happiness. May everyone have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Once again we are going to have our Christmas program at the Pentecostal Holiness Church on Dec. 22 at 6 p.m. on Fayette Street. There will be lots of singing. It will be a time of fellowship.

Don’t forget to count your blessings.

    Time was that we looked for heroes. Heroes of the make-believe variety have sold a lot of comic books. We also had real-life heroes like Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy, whose deaths the whole nation mourned.
    These days, we seem to be more interested in looking for villains. “Vote for me because I’m the good guy” has taken a back seat to “Don’t vote for him, because he’s the bad guy.”
