He was one of the most dazzling of God’s creation. He was called, Lucifer,  the son of the morning; the day star.  He was there at the beginning – he’s been around throughout history and still exists today.  He has charisma – he’s flashy and intriguing – he had wisdom, power, good looks, but he made one huge mistake – He thought he was better than God.

I wonder what was going through his mind during that first Christmas.  He knew Jesus would come someday.  It was all part of God’s promise.  He may have been recalling the words, “He will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”  He was then sentenced to a life outside of heaven where he would roam aimlessly.

God didn’t make it easy for him, but he still had his buddies – the ones who followed him and were doomed to the same fate.  They all relished in bringing others down with them.

So on that first Christmas, when God’s promise was being fulfilled, can you imagine how Satan and his minions felt.  It was like the good guy coming to wipe out the bad guys.  His first thought must’ve been to get out of town, but he had no where to go.

We are a lot like him when it comes to facing up to God.  We often run away and hide from Him.  We don’t want to take responsibility for our actions so we blame someone else.  We think we know better.  It’s a daily battle, isn’t it?

At that simple manger, we see the innocence of the lamb that would someday die for the sins of the world – but we can also be assured that He gained the victory over the devil when He conquered death on Easter morning.

Take that, you big bully!



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
