Christmas Carols

Sorry I haven’t been on here in a while... there is just a lot of stuff going on my my mind right now and I can’t really talk about it... but I will soon enough. Last night we went caroling… I really like to sing (even if it hurts the ears of others) so it was fun. We caroled at someone’s house that we knew… but it got me to thinking it would be fun to be able to just go caroling… walking around singing Christmas songs… but in today’s society I don’t think it would work… what I picture is a group of carolers singing in front of someone’s house and then the police coming and getting them for solicitation of God or something… beating them down with there sticks… dragging them away… oh wait a minute… I think I just went into the videos you see of people fighting for there freedom. But then aren’t we? It’s a sad state this country is in when someone is made to feel like they should be ashamed because they choose to live the way God asked them to!!!! That’s not the way it should be at all… in fact the people that choose not to live for God are the ones who should be ashamed… Now they even go so far as taking CHRISTmas, the celebration of HIS birth, and take HIM out of it… its ridiculous!!! X-mas... seriously? What a joke… it’s HIS Holiday… we are His creation… HIS not ours… if you are alive today it’s because HE gave you the breath of life…. Not because some gorillas got frisky a long time ago. How much is God really on anyone’s mind right now… seriously? How many people will truly celebrate God and the sacrifice he made? How many people will think about the fact that about 2000 years ago a baby was born in a stable… not a hospital not a house, but a stable… because no one had any room for him, and that baby was God almighty… the living God… no body had room for him then and nobody seems to have room for him now… sad. I might sound over the top to you, and if I do that’s fine. Some people like to show there patriotism… to show respect to the men giving there life so we can have our freedom. I choose to Respect the fact that my God came down from his thrown and became flesh so he could give his life so I could have my salvation.

I remember going caroling at Peabody Retirement home with church when I was young. It is really a sad thing that things are the way they are in this society. But one thing to remember is this: "...there is no new thing under the sun." Ecclesiastes 1:9.
I've always wondered how those that were there and saw Jesus, acutally SAW Him still did not believe.
