His Star
Little baby on the hay,

soon
there'll be another day
when nails shall pierce
Your hands and feet
as
You provide our sin's defeat.


Risen Jesus on the throne,
we lift our praise to
You alone-
for You're the gift that we receive
the moment that our hearts
believe.
- Roy Lessin


Thank God for this gift, His gift. No language
can praise it enough! II Corinthians 9:15
The Message





One night, in one place, one
special star appeared in the heavens, for one ordained length of time, and with
one specific purpose.


All the other stars in the night sky were lights
declaring the glory of God, but the light of this star appeared to point the way
to the One True Light. The other stars spoke of the great work of Creation, but
this star proclaimed the coming of the Creator to earth. The other stars
revealed God's handiwork, but this Star revealed His mighty arm of
salvation.


God still guides seeking hearts to the One True
Light.
As the world around us grows darker, the Light of Jesus Christ shines
even brighter. He is the Light of truth, of hope, of purity, and of beauty. His
Light shines through the faces of those who know Him, through the eyes of those
who see Him, through the character of those who walk with Him, and through the
hearts of those who love and serve Him.


You!

    .....Thank you for the wonderful depictions and reminders of this MOST special season.
    Nowhere in the Bible does it say we should set aside a special day.....but how can we not
    afterall, He came, He stayed, He died in our place.

    Christmas with Louise

    As a joke, my brother used to hang a pair of panty hose over his fireplace
    before Christmas. He said all he wanted was for Santa to fill them. What
    they say about Santa checking the list twice must be true because every
    Christmas morning, although Jay's kids' stockings were overflowed, his poor
    pantyhose hung sadly empty.

    One year I decided to make his dream come true. I put on sunglasses and went
    in search of an inflatable love doll. They don't sell those things at
    Wal-mart.

    I had to go to an adult bookstore downtown. If you've never been in an
    X-rated store, don't go. You'll only confuse yourself. I was there an hour
    saying things like, "What does this do?" "You're kidding me!" "Who would buy
    that?" Finally, I made it to the inflatable doll section. I wanted to buy a
    standard, uncomplicated doll that could also substitute as a passenger in my
    truck so I could use the carpool lane during rush hour.

    Finding what I wanted was difficult. Love dolls come in many different
    models. The top of the line, according to the side of the box, could do
    things I'd only seen in a book on animal husbandry. I settled on 'Lovable
    Louise." She was at the bottom of the price scale. To call Louise a "doll"
    took a huge leap of imagination.

    Christmas with Louise

    As a joke, my brother used to hang a pair of panty hose over his fireplace
    before Christmas. He said all he wanted was for Santa to fill them. What
    they say about Santa checking the list twice must be true because every
    Christmas morning, although Jay's kids' stockings were overflowed, his poor
    pantyhose hung sadly empty.

    One year I decided to make his dream come true. I put on sunglasses and went
    in search of an inflatable love doll. They don't sell those things at
    Wal-mart.

    I had to go to an adult bookstore downtown. If you've never been in an
    X-rated store, don't go. You'll only confuse yourself. I was there an hour
    saying things like, "What does this do?" "You're kidding me!" "Who would buy
    that?" Finally, I made it to the inflatable doll section. I wanted to buy a
    standard, uncomplicated doll that could also substitute as a passenger in my
    truck so I could use the carpool lane during rush hour.

    Finding what I wanted was difficult. Love dolls come in many different
    models. The top of the line, according to the side of the box, could do
    things I'd only seen in a book on animal husbandry. I settled on 'Lovable
    Louise." She was at the bottom of the price scale. To call Louise a "doll"
    took a huge leap of imagination.

    On Christmas Eve, with the help of an old bicycle pump, Louise came to life.
    My sister-in-law was in on the plan and let me in during the wee morning
    hours, long after Santa had come and gone, I filled the dangling pantyhose
    with Louise's pliant legs and bottom. I also ate some cookies and drank what
    remained of a glass of milk on a nearby tray. I went home, and giggled for a
    couple of hours. The next morning my brother called to say that Santa had
    been to his house and left a present that had made him VERY happy but had
    left the dog confused. She would bark, start to walk away, then come back
    and bark some more.

    We all agreed that Louise should remain in her panty hose so the rest of the
    family could admire her when they came over for the traditional Christmas
    dinner.

    My grandmother noticed Louise the moment she walked in the door. "What the
    hell is that?" she asked. My brother quickly explained, "It's a doll." "Who
    would play with something like that?" Granny snapped. I had several
    candidates in mind, but kept my mouth shut. "Where are her clothes?" Granny
    continued.

    "Boy, that turkey sure smells nice, Gran," Jay said, trying to steer her
    into the dining room. But Granny was relentless. "Why doesn't she have any
    teeth?" Again, I could have answered, but why would I? It was Christmas and
    no one wanted to ride in the back of the ambulance saying, "Hang on Granny!
    Hang on!"

    My grandfather, a delightful old man with poor eyesight, sidled up to me and
    said, "Hey, who's the naked gal by the fireplace?" I told him she was Jay's
    friend. A few minutes later I noticed Grandpa by the mantel, talking to
    Louise. Not just talking, but actually flirting. It was then that we
    realized this might be Grandpa's last Christmas at home. The dinner went
    well. We made the usual small talk about who had died, who was dying, and
    who should be killed, when suddenly Louise made a noise that sounded a lot
    like my father in the bathroom in the morning. Then she lurched from the
    panty hose, flew around the room twice, and fell in a heap in front of the
    sofa.

    The cat screamed. I passed cranberry sauce through my nose, and Grandpa ran
    across the room, fell to his knees, and began administering mouth-to-mouth
    resuscitation. My brother fell back over his chair and wet his pants and
    Granny threw down her napkin, stomped out of the room, and sat in the car.

    It was indeed a Christmas to treasure and remember. Later in my mother's
    garage, we conducted a thorough examination to decide the cause of Louise's
    collapse. We discovered that Louise had suffered from a hot ember to the
    back of her right thigh. Fortunately, thanks to a wonder drug called duct
    tape, we restored her to perfect health.

    Louise went on to star in several bachelor party movies. I think Grandpa
    still calls her whenever he can get out of the house.
