A Christmas Classic.jpg
From “A Classic Christmas,” a compilation of beautiful reflections, meditations, and scripture passages. 


The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
a light has dawned.

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this.

–Isaiah 9:2, 6-7

    Why are our elected officials opposed to the expressed will of the majority of the Citizens of California? Why are they in favor of the legalization of same sex unions? A policy that can only lead down the path of the destruction of the human race? A path already blazed for it by Abortion? Why are human beings in favor of the death of the human race? Why are they in favor of the destruction of the planet?

    This grounded me-Edward’s words after finding out she will day within days to weeks…
    “You all know that I have been sustained throughout my life by three saving graces – my family, my friends, and a faith in the power of resilience and hope,” she wrote. “These graces have carried me through difficult times and they have brought more joy to the good times than I ever could have imagined.”
    “The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered. We know that. And, yes, there are certainly times when we aren’t able to muster as much strength and patience as we would like. It’s called being human,” wrote Edwards.
    “But I have found that in the simple act of living with hope, and in the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I do have are made all the more meaningful and precious. And for that I am grateful.”
