Why I Love Christmas Hymns

Don’t get me wrong I really like Eartha Kitt and Santa Baby or the Grinch by most anyone or My Growns up Christmas wish etc. But what has my heart is Christmas hymns. Did you know that Sirius XM has 15 channels dedicated to holiday music? FIFTEEN. But notice it is holiday music not CHRISTmas music. There is a difference. What the song is about is the difference. Is it about the reason for the season or is it about the weather or the Grinch (love that song) or who is coming to town or down your chimney or who you saw momma kissing? Definitions of hymn - a religious song or poem, typically of praise to God or a...

What Does Grace Remind Me Daily?

Can I let you in on a secret?  I hesitate to wear my own shirts. Why?  Because I think if I am wearing this I have to be perfect.  I have to be on my best behavior.  I do not do "best" behavior well.  I try to drive the speed limit and let other cars in front of me. I try to exercise every day. I try to not give in to every chocolate craving I have. I try most times to wait until I can have a one on one discussion with a child that has done wrong. But sometimes I stop in the middle of the sidewalk and ask what were you thinking?  I love the saying Jesus...

Book Review; Life Interrupted By Priscilla Shirer

I am being more intentional in my reading life. 2018 saw me read a record number of Christian books fiction and non-fiction. Some I picked up due to curiosity and some due to a question or situation I found myself in.

It needs to refer to scripture frequently. It needs to be based on scripture, not someone's opinion. Life Interrupted was excellent.     What...
