Christmas Thank You

I hope that you had a most blessed Christmas!  We had wonderful celebrations with family and friends.  It is always so good to catch up with everyone and to see how families are growing.  Now that Christmas is over, it's time to send thank you cards for the beautiful gifts you received.


The background of this card is from the White Pines paper packet.  White Pines retires on December 31st - just a few days away!  Don't delay in ordering yours!  I paired this paper with the lovely Floral Banners stamp set.  The ink colors are glacier, sorbet, and fern.




I have to share what my favorite Christmas moment was this year.  On Christmas morning, our little family was sitting in our jammies in the family room.  Jerry was in the recliner - just where a dad should be.  I was sitting on one end of the couch with our beagle cuddled up next to me. Our son was lying on the rest of the couch with his head on the pooch's belly.  Our black cat was rolled up next to Shane purring like crazy as we watched the yule log.  For that 20 minutes time was perfect.  In those moments I realized how very blessed we are by the gift of the Father's grace, redemption, love, and healing.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I am always so appreciative of your visits!

THREE EXAMPLES OF WHY MEN SHOULD USE THE BIBLE ALONE BY STEVE FINNELL

Should mankind use the Bible and the Bible alone for teaching faith and practice? If God's truth is the template for you, then the Bible should be your source for truth.

THREE EXAMPLES OF WHY EXTRA-BIBLICAL SOURCES ARE NOT RELIABLE SOURCES FOR GOD'S TRUTH.

1. Quote from Pope Francis May 22, 2013: "The Lord created us in His image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and He does good and all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and do not evil. All of us. "But Father, this is not Catholic! He cannot do good.' Yes he can..."The Lord has redeemed all of us,all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us not just Catholics Everyone! Father, the atheist? Even the atheists. Everyone! ....We must meet one another doing good. ' But I don't believe, Father, I am an atheist! But do good:we will meet one another there."

2. Quote from Billy Graham October 20, 1997: "I think everybody that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they're conscious of it or not, they're members of the Body of Christ......He's calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world,or the Christian world, or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ,because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus, but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don't have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think they are saved, and that they're going to be with us in heaven."

3. Quote from Doctrine of Covenants -section 130:22 (Mormon supposed divine revelations): The "Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man's; the Son also; but the Holy Ghost has not a body of flesh and bones, but is a personage of Spirit. Were is not so, the Holy Ghost could not dwell in us.

These three quotes are all contrary to the Bible.





GOD'S WORD IS FOUND IN THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE.
