Annual Christmas Panic

OK, it is really December and the days are speeding up for sure. I feel a combination of excitement and panic. I’m looking forward to some parties and church events. I am looking forward to enjoying my decorated home. I am enjoying the holiday foods and music. But, wow! There are a lot of things that are not done. Most of the cards have not been mailed. Some gifts still need to be purchased – still unsure of what to even get a couple of people. I still have more baking to do. The house is in some disarray because of the process of decorating. No gifts have been wrapped.


These projects are scheduled on my calendar. I am only a little behind there. I am finding though that although the date is scheduled, when that day comes, finding the hours to prioritize those tasks is not easy. However, I am working on it.


I must get back in touch with my vision of the perfect holiday. How do I make this happen? Certainly not by using up all my energy every day. How do I deal with setbacks?


Some baking may not get done. There will still be plenty. The boys’ favorite cookies will get done for sure.


The house will get back to normal once I finish the decorating. That should get done this coming weekend.


I’ll look at that friend, my calendar, and schedule a time to wrap packages to mail and another time to wrap packages for here. I’ll put on some music and sip a hot beverage. It will be fun.


I have scheduled one day away from all chores and work to spend with my hubby. All is good.


Enjoy your holidays!

    From the Garden of Eden to the present there has been God's truth and Satan's lies.

    GOD'S TRUTH: Genesis 2:17 "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."(NKJV)

    SATAN'S LIE: Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said to the woman, "You will not surely die.(NKJV)

    GOD'S TRUTH: Matthew 28:1-7….6 "He is not here He is risen….7…..He is risen from the dead….(NKJV)

    SATAN'S LIE: Matthew 28:11-15…..12 When they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, 13 saying , "Tell them, 'His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.'….(NKJV)

    Today there are men telling God's truth, however, there are others who spreading Satan's lies.

    GOD'S TRUTH: Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.(NKJV)

    SATAN'S LIE: He who does not believe will not be condemned; because there are many ways to be saved other than believing in Jesus.

    SATAN'S LIE: He who believes is saved by faith only and should be immersed in water as a testimony of faith.

    SATAN'S LIE: Water baptism is not essential to the forgiveness of sins; because baptism is a work of man.

    SATAN'S LIE: Good works save us, believing and being baptized do not save us.

    SATAN'S LIE: Men are saved by grace alone, God forces men to have faith so they can be saved by faith only.

    SATAN' LIE: Men need to be immersed in water to join the denomination of their choice, however, they do not need to be baptized in order to go to heaven
