For many the Christmas season is over – to be packed away for another year – to be forgotten for another 300 or so days and then revived with the buying of more gifts, more parties, more over-indulgence – to extend for a few more days with sales of Christmas items and the use of gift cards.

What will we do with this holiday?  Do we just pack it away with all the other trappings or do we use it as a new beginning as it was intended for us?

Christmas should never end, for it is just the start of a wonderful life with Jesus.  He was sent to us on that first Christmas Day to bring a special gift from God, the Father.  That gift is our salvation and it is something we don’t deserve and can get no other way than through Him.  It is a gift that never loses value, never should be returned, never taken for granted and re-gifted as much as possible to others who need it just as much as we do.

As the decorations come down and the celebrations wane, let’s hold tightly to this precious gift, but not forget to share it with others.  It can change the world.


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
