Merry Christmas Everyone and thank you George


Today is Christmas and our last daily Christmas song is noted below - Joy to the World.  We chose this song because we wanted one that might have been sung by George Washington and his men as they crossed over the Delaware on Christmas night, 1776.   Our research shows that this song was sung during those times - History of Joy to the World  Imagine that.


George was a believer in Christ and put his faith and trust in God.  Before he left to row across the Delaware to fight one of the world's largest armies with a band of worn-out, de-motivated patriots, he left behind this message scribbled on a piece of paper -- "Victory or Death."  Read more about this battle at:  Washington Crossing 


How many of those who are our leaders today would be willing to fight the battles and leave notes such as "Victory or Death" behind on their desk for the sake of others?


George later became the first President of the United States.  He was asked to be the first President because he had already earned his stripes by fighting many battles to win liberty for America.  He was a natural-born leader, a military strategist and a humble man who put God above self.  America was a blessed nation for having a man such as this at the helm. We pray the same will be true in 2012.


On this Christmas day as you celebrate  the gifts of peace and joy because of the birth of our King, please remember the warriors of our past who stood up against tyranny for liberty's sake so we could remain free.  Remember George and his men tonight as you sit in your warm homes, surrounded by family and friends, and enjoying the freedoms we have.



Merry Christmas dear patriots.   Joy to the World, the Lord has come!

Thank you Billie.  You seem to speak directly from "Our Heart" when you voice these very thoughts.

You are a blessing to us all.  Now from Numbers 6: 24-27 we send this special blessing to you:

"The Lord bless thee, and keep thee;  The Lord make his face to shine upon thee; The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace".   Amen

Last year at this time we ALL were so exhausted from making phone calls, faxing and emailing Harry Reid et al with all the bills passed in the Lame Duck session. This year was such a pleasant surprise to actually do what we were supposed to do on this joyous holiday. God Bless George Washington and his patriots, hopefully we will not have to repeat history........Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

A line in a hymn I heard this morning - Now we need not fear the grave, Jesus Christ was born to save!

Collecting for our Bahamian Neighbors

Good morning!

We spent last week wondering if we would be hit by Hurricane Dorian.  Thankfully we were spared.  However, the Bahamas were not so lucky.  I am sure you have seen the devastation there.

My daughter has a friend (a nurse) who is arranging multiple trips to the area and will be collecting supplies to take to those areas.  If you would like to help, we will collect things at…
