Since my surgery in January 2015 and Margaret’s surgery in June 2015 brought about some physical adjustments in our life style, we have been praying the Lord would open up a door of service that we could work on from home. We believe this website is an answer to that prayer.
For the past few years, we have made “AMATEUR” CDs for our family in Statesville, shut-ins, and a few other people as a way of sharing God’s love and our love with them.
We have been blessed to have a special friend with a God given musical gift who plays piano for us in addition to using purchased karaoke and accompaniment CDs.
As you listen to these CDs, we hope you will overlook all of our mistakes and hear only the message of each song and devotional. Our only goal is to praise the Lord and tell others about Him.
Christ Is Born
WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE — Margaret and I are thankful for each one of you that returns each month to check out our website. We are happy for each new user that checks out the site. We want to lift Christ up as the Savior of the World. If we reach out to Him, Christ will never fail us and He loves us with an unconditional love.
Please take time to listen to “The Greatest Man in History” and see if you AGREE OR DISAGREE with the information contained in it. Your decision could change your life.
What makes Christianity and the Bible different from all other religions? The Bible’s author claims to be the ONE TRUE GOD who inspired humans to write down HIS instructions of what He demands of His followers. God said humans were created to have a relationship with Him, but He gave humanity the right to obey or disobey His commands. When man disobeyed, God sent His Son, Jesus, to become the perfect sin sacrifice for humans– who accepted the Son’s teachings — to be reconciled to the Father. Upon Jesus’ death, resurrection and ascension back to heaven, God sent the Holy Spirit to live within each believer to guide them in living the life God had planned for them. The opening song “The Gift Goes On” contains that IMPORTANT MESSAGE.
This month Christians are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ which was promised hundreds of years before in the Old Testament. He was born a babe in a manger, announced to the world to humble shepherds watching their sheep – not to the powerful political parties or religious leaders. It is a historical fact that Jesus Christ was born, walked, talked, performed miracles, and changed lives for 3 years in an earthly ministry. He claimed to be sent by God to live without sin and be crucified so His followers could be reconciled to God. After 3 years teaching His disciples, Christ was crucified beside two thieves, buried in a tomb. After 3 days He arose from the dead, appearing to His followers in different situations. His followers watched as He ascended into the heavens to go back to be with God.
This month we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Luke chapter 2 verses 1-20 in the Bible gives an account of the events. We are using the following Christmas Carols that the song writers felt inspired to write to tell the story of the birth of Jesus. Listen carefully to the words to see if you agree.
“Silent Night” gives the events taking place on the night of the birth. “O Little Town of Bethlehem” was the place where Jesus would be born. “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear” describes the night of the Angels Announcement. “The First Noel” tells the story of the Shepherds receiving the announcement. Because there was no room in the Inn, the Shepherds would find the babe “In a Manger”. When we read all the verses in the Bible about Mary – the mother of Jesus – we understand why the song “Mary Did You Know” was written. We see why the birth of Jesus brought “JOY TO THE WORLD”.
We close with some favorite secular songs of the season: “Twelve Days of Christmas”,
“Jingle Bells”, “Silver Bells”, “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas”, “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”, “Christmas Song”, and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”.
Until next time, May God Bless and Keep You is our prayer.
