Merry/Blessed Chrismas!!.....May The Giving never Stop!

Merry/Blessed christmas!!  To All of You!!  I Pray that No One Over Spent, especially on Guilt Gifts and Unecessary things.  I Pray that Someone Prayed and Thanked God for allowing you to See and Share this day with Someone.  And while the Department stores are ringing up their sales, and calculating their profits,  Please don't let the Giving stop. I Pray that No one is having a Christmas without a Roof over their head. But People still will need a roof over their head tomorrow.  I Pray that No one will have to spend Christmas without having a Nice Warm Meal.  But Adults and Children will still need to eat a Warm meal Tomorrow.  So, let The giving Continue. And If you are a church..... even if you are having it tight yourself, see who needs help in your community.  Do what you can, to help them yourself.  And then Find someone else to help where you cannot.  And even as an individual, you can still do the same thing.  And don't do it to get the Glory, But do it to The Glory of God, in Jesus Christ. For He is the Reason that We Celebrate this day.  And on Tomorrow, while you are in Church, Remember to Pray for Each other. Don't just ask to be Blessed for just yourself.  But ask God to Bless You,  So that "You" can Be a Blessing too!   And as the New Year comes in, forget about making one of those Senseless Resolutions. But ask God to help you to Be All that He wants you to be. Remember to Stand up for What is Right. And to make sure that those who work for You in Your  City, State and in Washington... Stand up for You too!!  We are Thankful for the bills that just got passed in this past week.  But The Fight Continues. And The Prayers and Love for each other must continue too!!-So,Have a "Blessed/Merry Christmas-And a Productive/Properous/Blessed New Year-Blessings-PastorD

Twas Two Days Before Christmas Eve.....How Are You Doing?

Well, here it is The Wednesday before Christmas Eve night.  And I was wondering....How are you doing?  I know that this Should be a Time of Joy, Love and Laughter, especially for those who do know the Real Meaning of the Season.  But this is not always the case.  Some people have heaviness on their hearts today.  My Mom died in Feburary of 2008.  So, around Christmas of 2007, she had just come out of  the hospital after being hospitalized for the first time. And we thought that she was doing pretty Good. We enjoyed a Blessed Christmas with her, but we did  not know that she would be dead two months later. She was a Very Active anointed 73 year old, Blessed Woman of God.  So on top of Me , My Siblings and my children missing her.  Around this time of year, we are also remembering that a couple of years or so ago, we did celebrate Christmas with her, but that she also died a couple of months later. And I don't know what's laying heavy on your heart today, but I just wanted to check on you.  And it's okay, to Cry and be Angry and Discouraged, but we cannot  stay there. You know that it was months before I realized that I was a little upset with God for my Mom dying after what we thought was a short illness.  But we didn't know until after an autopsy that she had Fourth Stage Pancreatic Cancer...But Still I had to admit to God ,that I was upset with him. I Never Disrespected Him...But I had to be honest so that I could Move on. And I want All of you to be able to move on. I don't know , what's festering in your heart.  Maybe a loved one died too, maybe someone left you and broke your heart.  You might of been unjustly discharged from a job, or just lost a job due the economy.  You may have a sickness that won't go away. And if you're like me, you also may be wondering how you are going to pay your bills in January, or now for that matter.  Not because you over spent for Christmas...Please!... No, Because You just don't have enough Money. You also may be One of the 99'ers who have been denied extension of Your Unemployment benefits, And that in itself,  makes me angry! And you can't even think about Christmas Shopping.    ( And by the way..Places like The Dollar Tree are becoming more Crowded with People, who want to give with Love without going broke.)..So, don't go broke over Chritmas, it's not about that. It's about a Mighty Saviour name Jesus Christ!..But in any event, I just want You to Be Encouraged. Things will get better.  And I say this not based on any man, The Federal Reserve and the Like. But I know that God is Faithful!!  And for All of  You who are going through, and are Reading this Blog today. I Pray that God will Remind those of you who know him, that He is "Still" God, and I Pray that He will Show those who do not Know Him, that He "Is" God!!  I Pray that He will come to Your House, and Meet Your Needs, and do something for You, that No man can do. Heal You,  when the doctor has given up. And be Your Protector and Advocate, if you are being Bullied in School or on the job.   Because You know what?...Our God has it like that!!! So, as we get closer to Christmas,  fall on your knees, Praise God and ask God to help you.  And I'll ask God to help you too. And if you cannot give anyone nothing but a Hug and a Smile..... do it! ..And Lift up Your head.  Because You still have to live after December 25th, 2010. So, to All of You......Please Have a Blessed/Miracleous/ Safe Christmas!-With Love-Blessings-PastorD

Pray, Stand Up and Fight

Praise The Lord, Everyone!!

   While we are out trying to get the best deals for Christmas.  Either just to impress someone or maybe, because you really care.  What else is taking up your time?   In this lame duck session.  The Republican Party and some Democrats have been allowed to Play Politics and Games with Your Lives. While you are trying to get 10% percent off.  The Congress is trying to Cut you off.  Off from Unemployment Insurance, that by the way you paid for. And They have given the Wealthiest Americans a Tax Break, with no way to pay for it. They are screaming about extending the 99'ers, Their Unemployment Benefits  and Screaming about giving Health Care and Benefits to The 911 First Responders.   Because...Oh They don't know how to pay for it! Please Folks, Do not let Other Folks make Major Decisions over your life, without you having a Say!  Get the email addresses and phone numbers of your Congressmen and Senators.  Demand that You be Heard..With Love that is.  The Rumors are flying high that when The January, 2011 Congress comes in, that The Poor and The Middle Class will not have a chance.  But you don't have to take that.  They Work for you.  Make them work, or give "Them" their Pink Slips!!  So, as we Celebrate a Great time of Love and the Birth of Jesus Christ. Remember that We All Need to Look out for each other. That God is Greater than All of them and their Low-Life Plans.  So Now is the time to come Together, Pray, Stand Up and Fight!!-Blessings-PastorD
