My mother asked the question "What is your favorite name for Jesus?" My daddy and I both said "We hadn't really ever thought about it before." After thinking about it for awhile I said "Messiah, Mighty Councilor, and Savior of the World." So I am asking you, do you have a favorite name for Jesus is?Post a comment with your answer!
Here are some of His names and were to find them in the Bible:
King of kings (1 Tim 6:15; Rev. 19:16)
Lord of lords (Rev. 1:18)
I am (John 8:58)
Lamb of God (John 1:29)
Lion of the tribe of Judah (Rev. 5:5)
Good Shepherd (John 10:11, 14)
Light of the World (John 8:12)
True Vine (John 15:1)
Savior (Eph. 5:23; Titus 1:4; 3:6; 2 Peter 2:20)
Immanuel ( Mt. 1:23)

I hope you all are enjoying this Christmas season! With all the parties, decorating, gift opening, and family gathering, I hope you don't forget the reason for this season!
We have FINALLY finished decorating our house and are now sitting back and enjoying it. This year we have truly tried to focus on the birth of Jesus and not so much on the gift giving. I thought I would share some pics from around our house!

Merry Christmas to all of you! May God bless you and keep you safe throughout the holidays.

The True Meaning of Christmas

As Christmas grows closer, everyone is in a frantic frenzy trying to get everything bought and wrapped, baking all of the wonderful treats that only come around at this time of year, and traveling to see family! Yet in the back of everyone's mind is the true meaning of Christmas. The birth of our Savior Christ Jesus! The best gift of all!
One of the traditions my family does is buying and decorating a Christmas tree! It's something my family looks forward to at Christmas! One of my brothers made the comment that our Christmas tree is ugly if it isn't lit up, but when it is, the whole tree looks lovely! That is just like the world! The world is a dark place because it is full of sin but when Jesus enters our lives there is a wonderful light because Jesus is the Light of the World!
John 8:12: "When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said 'I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the Light of Life.'"
Christmas is one of the only times when people aren't offended if you mention Jesus' name. Everyone attends church and listens to sermons on Jesus' birth, death, and resurrection!
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
In Christ,
P.S. There may not be any more posts until the new year because Kat and I will probably be busy; so,Happy New Year if I don't post until 2010!

Fun Decorations!

On Saturday my mother was looking at a website that showed how to make 3D snow
flakes, so we decided to make some for our house! They look awesome and extremely
complicated! The cool thing about them is they aren't hard to make at all!
This is a picture of the first one I made!

After I made this one I got out some foil wrapping paper that my daddy and
I had bought earlier in the day at Hobby Lobby and made this one!
We have a lots of snow flakes around the house now! Our family loves decorating! Especially at this time of year!
Here is a picture of our stockings

My daddy made this ornament a couple of years ago!
I would post a picture of the ornament I made last year but I can't find the
ornament so I can't take a picture of it.
The King reigns and His Son!

Prayer Request

Yesterday I learned that Mrs. Duggar had her 19th child three months early. Cable network TLC says 43-year-old Michelle Duggar gave birth to a 1-pound, 6-ounce daughter Thursday night during an emergency cesarean section. She'd been due March 18. The baby is in stable condition right now but there are a lot of side affects that can come with being this early! Please pray for the Duggar family and their baby.

Awesome Book Series!

I am going to get off of the Christmas page for a second and share with you some of my favorite books!
The Kingdom Series
by Chuck Black
book #1
book #2
book #3
book #4
book #5
book #6
The Kingdoms Series is an allegory of the Bible using Knights in a made-up land with Battles, Faith, and Courage! I really liked books three and six but they are all really good! (I have actually read book six twice! I am planing on reading them again soon!) I don't know if you like knights or not but these are some extremely good books!
"The King reigns and His Son!" (quote from the books)

White Christmas

As my first Christmas post I wanted to share one of our favorite Christmas songs!

White Christmas
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas,
Just like the ones I used to know.
Where the tree-tops glisten,
And children listen
To hear
sleighbells in the snow.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas,
With every Christmas card I write,
"May your days be merry and bright,
And may all your Christmases be white".

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas,
Just like the ones I used to know.
Where the tree-tops glisten,
And children listen
To hear
sleighbells in the snow.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas,
With every Christmas card I write,
"May your days be merry and bright,
And may all your Christmases be white".

Kat and I love this song and the movie White Christmas!
While this time of year is full of decorations and fun let's not forget the true meaning of Christmas- Jesus' birthday (at least it's the day we celebrate it on).
In Christ,

Just A Closer Walk With Thee

Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea.
Daily walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

I am weak, but Thou art strong
Jesus, keep me from all wrong.
I'll be satisfied as long
As I walk let me walk close to Thee

In this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who but Thee my burden shares?
None but Thee, oh Lord, none but Thee.

When my feeble life is o'er
Time for me will be more no more
Guide me gently, safely o'er
To Thy kingdom shore to Thy shore

When my weary life is o'er
Pain and suff'ring are no more.
Who will lead me safely o'er
Canaan's shore,
That sweet Canaan's shore.

I would love to hear what some of your favorite christian songs are! Feel free to leave a comment!

Let it snow!

Yippee! We got little snow earlier today! I was so excited! I just love to see snow fall!I was disappointed that it didn't stick, but it was SNOW! When I awakened this morning I learned that Kat's little sister and my little sister had set a trap for a raccoon! To our amazement they caught one! He was huge!(I don't know if it was a male or female so I just went with a male! =D) We decided to let it go instead of killing it! I am sorry to say that I didn't get a picture of it. Oh, I almost forgot to say that we (Kat, my brother, and I) played a round of Yahtzee in which I won! Games are so much fun to play when you can't go outside! If you haven't played Yahtzee you are missing out on a lot of fun!
In Christ,
