Blessing our Community

December is the month of blessing our community. Blessing our community is very important in showing the love of Christ. There are many people in our community that need help and shown that people do care about them. I encourage everyone to go out and bless those in our community because this season especially is about showing love to others because of the love Christ has shown us. Even the smallest of things can benefit someone going through a difficult time. No matter how big or how small your contribution is, it will be greatly appreciated by those who are receiving it. You could pay for the person behind you in the drive thru, shovel the snow from someone’s driveway, volunteer your time at the Good Samaritan Inn, or help with blessing the elderly with whatever they need done. Let’s go out there and show the love of Christ by blessing those in our community!

Christmas Season

christmas

 

Christmas time is my favorite time of the year. This is the time where we can eat candy canes, wear Christmas sweaters, watch movies with family and friends by the fire place, and even play in the snow! For students, Christmas time means the end of the semester and that wonderful break that we get from homework and tests. While this is true, this is not why we should look towards Christmas break. Christmas break is about being with family and friends and rejoicing in the birthday of Jesus Christ. He came as a little baby into this world that needed him dearly so that he could die on the cross to take away our sins. Christmas time is about rejoicing in the fact that because of Him, we can live in eternity with him and that death is not the end. Yes, candy canes, school breaks, and presents under the tree are great and a way we celebrate the Christmas season, but I encourage everyone to really think about what Christmas means during this holiday season. When you think about what the Christmas season is really about, you get a sense of joy that comes from it. I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas with their families and gets the true joy from Christmas.
