A Christmas Thought by St. Augustine



“He was created of a mother whom He created. He was carried by hands that He formed. He cried in the manger in wordless infancy. He, the Word, without whom all human eloquence is mute.”  

                                                                             St. Augustine

A Christmas Thought by Corrie Ten Boom



"Who can add to Christmas? The perfect motive is that God so loved the world. The perfect gift is that He gave His only Son. The only requirement is to believe in Him. The reward of faith is that you shall have everlasting life."
                                                Corrie Ten Boom

The End of Friday's Thought

Friday's Thought:

Well, this will be my last 'Friday's Thought' post for the year.

For the next few weeks I'll be sharing Christmas quotes on Tuesdays and then sharing my top 10 reads of 2014 at the end of the month. And of course, more thoughts on books in the new year. : )




For my last Friday's thought, I'll leave you with this beautiful song, one of my favorite renditions of 'Mary Did You Know?' by the group Pentatonix.

Enjoy and have a wonderful holiday season!

#GivingTuesday!

Today, Compassion International wants to help fund and launch a brand new Child Survival Program  in Gujarat, India - ALL IN ONE DAY, #GivingTuesday!


Why a Child Survival Program in India?

Because nearly one in every three newborn deaths in the world occurs in India. And because every year, more than two million children under age five die in India.

But we can change that. We can change that in one day.

Funding this center means we can:
  • prepare moms with training to help care for their babies
  • help mothers learn to read and write
  • give children a safe place to learn and grow
  • ensure lifesaving medical care for babies and moms proclaim the hope of God to families living in poverty


Would you like to help? Today you can donate to compassion to help babies in India. You can go HERE and have a look and see what it's all about.

Hope you are able to join me in the joy of giving this season! : )
