December – My Holiday , X-mas, Christmas Post

Christmas TreeThis is indeed a touchy subject. Every year since I have been a child this time of the year brings up lots of questions without any clear answers.

Is it okay for a Christian to celebrate Christmas? I was born and baptized into a Catholic family.

I left that faith years ago and would consider myself a Christian in the sense that I believe Jesus Christ was born and died for my sins. Because man is corrupt.

I learned along time ago that the celebration of Christmas really has nothing to do with the Bible. That the roots of Christmas are actually from pagan tradition.  The question is:

Is it okay to celebrate Christmas?

What Are You Expecting In Your Life?


Here is an interesting thought…

What are you expecting in your life? How do you measure happiness? Some folks say they are happy when clearly they are not. And there are others who say they are not happy when clearly they are. Some people are happiest when they are miserable.

Sounds confusing doesn’t it?

The real question I suppose is how did we get to where we are at?

I wanna share a story with you today that I haven’t ever shared with anyone before. Maybe it’s because I got done talking to a friend who is going through marital problems and it made me remember the story…

So here’s my story I guess I will title it:

You Git What You Got Because You Asked For It

One spring Sunday afternoon I was talking to my old pastor. I remember being sad that day because I just found out he was leaving to get treatment for his illness. He said “Larry god is good all the time” to which I replied, I agree.

He said, when I was younger I hung out with the wrong crowd and I did all the wrong things. Later when it caught up with me I ended up in jail and it was in jail where I was saved.  He said Larry god is good everyday. He gave me this congregation, he blessed my family. My children are good children, my wife is a good wife….

He said there are some days he forgets about his past. He said though his past has finally caught up with him.

You see, due to his lifestyle when he was younger he contracted Hepatitis C. Now later in life it has come back to haunt him. This conversation I had with him happened 9 years ago when my oldest daughter was an infant.

..His words and the way he said his words has stuck with me ever since

He said again… God is good, all the time. He is so good in fact he can’t go against his own laws.  He said to me it doesn’t really matter what man thinks, if they believe in god or not. But god’s reality is all around us even in non – believers, even if they choose not to see it.

I said what is that reality pastor?

He said, gods time line isn’t like ours. Our time here on this planet is short. It’s barely a blink of his eye. We reap what we sow. Even if we change our ways we reap what we sow and there is no way around it.

He said so yes I have been forgiven for what I have done in the past. But I still sowed the seeds. I still have to pay the price for what I have done. I am the pastor of this church and god has blessed this church. He worked through me, I know this.. But now it’s time to pay for what I have done.

He said it’s okay because I know where I am going and I can’t wait to get there, but the journey is a hard one. If I have any advice to give you it’s just this…

Always remember for every action their is a equal reaction, cause and effect is always at work… And I promise you, you will always reap what you sow.. So start sowing good seed now… You can never sow enough good seed…..

…My friends,

What you do does matter. How you act does matter. The decisions you make today will effect your tomorrow, next week, next month, next year and probably the rest of your life. You may not even realize that what you did 20 years ago is effecting you today.

So today’s story is a warning…

Guard your thoughts, safe guard your mind. Only bring into your life things that lift you up and make you better. If something is destroying you, get it out of you asap!

Think before you act…

That’s all for now, talk to you soon!

Current Events – Sunday’s Report

I figured I would round up current events from around the world. After all isn’t it a good idea to be informed?

An oiled bird from Oil Spill in San Francisco ...

This whole oil spill thinking going on in the gulf is insane, you would think with all the technology and knowledge people have things like this wouldn’t happen. I started watching this thing when it first happened. Whats with all the bull shit with the company not coming clean with how much oil is actually being spilled out.  There shouldn’t even be an argument or delay. You would think they would get it together and fix this dam mess, but they haven’t..

Current Events, Obama, BP and the Oil Spill?

What is your view about the oil spill and BP? I am confused about the fact that many people, including blacks across the USA, are blaming obama for the oil.

I am not sure how I feel about this, I was certainly brought up in a strong christian family.  As far back as I can remember there have been talk about the end days , trials and tribulations. It does seem that every year we are hearing about doom and gloom. I think the reality is nobody really knows for sure what god has in store for the planet or when.

I would think God doesn’t have to do anything at all, us humans seem to screw stuff up on our own. God simply has to sit back and watch us destroy our own civilization.

Current Events And Bible Prophecy: Storm Watch 6/27/10: Troopers

Current Events And Bible Prophecy. Jesus said you can read the weather signs in the sky. How is it that you can’t understand the signs of the times? If therefore thou shalt not watch I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not …

Seriously don’t you think Israel has been through enough crap in the past 2000 years or so?  The only thing I am going to say about this is , Israel is the only nation that vanished off of the world map and re-appeared again. That should say something. But I am not one to stir a pot so to speak.


But I agree that current events are strikingly consistent with the prophecies and I believe it is possible that we could see these events unfold soon. The mention of “Gomer” in Ezekiel, for example, refers to the modern-day State of …
