Christmas Pics


The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. Isaiah 9:2



For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6



I hope y'all had a glorious CHRISTmas!

Peace on Earth? And Random Pics :)


"I heard the bells on Christmas Day

Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till, ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Then from each black accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,
And with the sound
The carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,
And made forlorn
The households born
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
"There is no peace on earth," I said;
"For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: 
"God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men!"


- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The times in which we are living are wicked. Just last week there was a shooting at a school in Connecticut, and last night two police officers were killed in my hometown. It is sad to see the "peace on earth-good will to men" slipping away (not that it was here completely since the fall of man)!

The second part of Jeremiah 6:14 and 8:11 says:
"Peace, peace; when there is no peace." 

How true this is!
Someday (soon Lord willing), Jesus will return and there will finally be peace!
For now, we must make ourselves ready for that day.

CHRISTmas Time and other random pics:







MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

It's been 72 Years

Sunday, December 7th, 1941..."A date which will live in infamy"
The Naval Force at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii was taken by surprise as some Japanese planes flew over their island in waves, bombing the ground below.

Seeing that I LOVE WWII history, and seeing that this is after all Pearl Harbor Day, let me just say this...


"If tomorrow all the things were gone
I'd worked for all my life,
And I had to start again
with just my children and my wife,
I'd thank my lucky stars
to be living here today,
'Cause the flag still stands for freedom
and they can't take that away. 

I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free,
And I won't forget the men who died
who gave that right to me,
And I gladly stand up next to you
and defend her still today,
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota
to the hills of Tennessee,
Across the plains of Texas
from sea to shining sea.
From Detroit down to Houston
and New York to L.A.,
There's pride in every American heart
and it's time we stand and say:

I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free,
And I won't forget the men who died
who gave that right to me,
And I gladly stand up next to you
and defend her still today,
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A."

-God Bless the USA


"O say can you see by the dawn's early light,

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"
- Star Spangled Banner

...we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain...

For His Glory,
