Why do non christians celebrate christmas?

Posted 09-15-2011 at 09:01 AM by lauriebear

CM3 this is for you... I LOVE this, LOVE it, if more would live it then it doesn't matter why you celebrate, just so long as we are kind and loving to EVERYONE, not just those who believe in Jesus.

HOW TO CELEBRATE CHRIST'S BIRTHDAY
-- from Christ


Dear children,

It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are taking My name out of the season. Maybe you've forgotten that I wasn't actually born during this time of the year and that it was some of your predecessors who decided to celebrate My birthday on what was actually a time of pagan

She Has My Eyes….

She Has My Eyes….
Written on September 13th, 2011 by V. Rodney Harrison Jr.

With warm coffee in hand while gazing through the window,
I watch the snowflakes dance quietly from the sky.
And I daydream back to kind memories of my childhood,
Of more simple days long since been passed by.

With a deep breath that amounts to a reminisce sigh,
My soul reclaims memories of Merry Christmases past.
I can recall how ever carefree life appeared to be,
And how innocence would seem to eternally last.

The warmth of the fireplace burning freshly chopped wood,
With the sweet aroma of sugar cookies baking nearby.
My friends at the door chanting “hurry – let’s go!”
As I grab scarf and sled and kiss Mommy goodbye.

Family at the dinner table telling stories and laughing,
Grandma’s turkey and dressing abundantly filling us all.
Night services at the church as we thank God for our Savior,

In Honor of 911

Posted 09-09-2011 at 11:57 PM by caninemom3

In just a few days it will be the 10th anniversary of the 911 attacks. It is something that touched us all in very private ways yet still outward ways. To this day when I watch a tribute, I cannot help crying hysterically. Here is a tribute to everyone who passed away as a result and their families who survived.

WHERE WAS GOD IN ALL OF THIS?

First of all, God was trying to discourage anyone from taking this
flight. Those four flights together held over 1000 passengers and there
was only 266 aboard.

God was on 4 commercial flights giving terrified passengers the ability
to stay calm. Not one of the family members who was called by a loved
one on one of the high-jacked planes said that passengers were screaming
in the background.

On one of the flights God was giving strength to passengers to try to
overtake the highjackers.

God was busy trying to create obstacles for employees at the...

When nothing seems right.

Posted 09-08-2011 at 11:32 AM by Lynn68 (Everything Christmas)

Sometimes, like today and yesterday, nothing seems right in my life. I'm pretty sure everybody has those days or weeks and they really suck. It started at work when I actually cashed a fraud check for someone. Man it looked real if I've ever seen a real check before!! I mean the person even had the pay stub attached. Then that evening I didn't balance in my register. What else???? Working for a bank can make you pull your hair out at times!! On my way home yesterday, I was waiting for the bus and was in my own world thinking about the bad day I had when the bus came. I always wait for people to get off the bus before I get in but as I said, I was in my own world so I got on as someone was trying to get out. I said I was sorry when I came back to reality and realized what I was doing, yet rudely the bus driver said to me "thanks for waiting for the person to get out of the bus first, ma'am." Now I was really upset. I didn' t say anything, I just sat down. It was a bad day and...

The Christmas Bug is Buzzing!

Posted 09-07-2011 at 09:06 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

With Christmas still more than 3 months in the future, and the decorating season 2 months away, I have been really bitten by the Christmas bug this year. I cannot wait for the season to begin this year, the fun, the parties, just that warm special feeling that is in the air all December long, it is a shame that feeling can't last longer throughout the year. I have mentioned before in my blog and in the forums how off kilter our spring/summer has been, but it is time to move on from that and focus on all things red & green, going to a few local gift shops this past weekend and seeing their Christmas decorations and smelling the Christmas candles has really stoked the "Christmas fire" in my belly. It has also really made me realize how bad I want to get this Christmas store going, but that is still years away at this point.

Why is Christmas so special to so many of us we feel the need to find it and live it everyday of the year?
There is nothing like...
