Isaiah 9:6

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

stockingsutffChristmas is only two weeks away! As we enter into this blessed and beautiful season, many readers are having questions surrounding certain traditions. "Is it wrong to celebrate Christmas? I was told that it is pagan." "Should I teach my children about Santa Claus?" "Should I have a Christmas tree?"

The structure of "Positive, Encouraging & Inspirational Messages" does not allow me fully to address these issues, but hopefully I can give you enough guidance, that you, (with the help of the Holy Spirit), can find the answers yourself. And, as always, I will not tell you what to do. God will show you, if you ask Him.

God Bless You!
