  • Life lessons according to Facebook

    There’s always something new to click on Facebook and recently it’s been “What Has 2016 Taught You?”

    According to Facebook, here’s what I’ve supposedly learned this past year:

    “Forgiving is easy, it’s trusting them again that’s hard.”

    The folks or whoever/whatever at Facebook added, “The past year has changed you completely. You’ve seen your life from a completely different angle and this led you to new experiences.”

    Hmmm.

  • Are people actually color blind?

    We have never seen him driving. We thought he either doesn’t like to drive or that he just can’t drive. He gets to the stop light, but instead of stopping he asks: “What is the color of the stop light?” with no intention to stop at the red light. That’s how we found out why he didn’t drive; my friend is color blind deficient.

  • A lesson from the pagans

    Because we’ve heard the story of the Magi many times, we’re familiar with the gifts they left for the child Jesus. We may not appreciate the gift they left for us.

  • Sharing the gospel

  • Don’t pack away Jesus

    Well…. It’s all over… Christmas, it came and went just like that! Did you have a good Christmas? I hope you had the opportunity to enjoy time with family and friends.

    I guess before long it will be time to put all the Christmas decorations and things away until next year. The tree starts looking old and the lights don’t seem to be so bright anymore after Christmas is over.
