Gifts

Today my mind is on this roller coaster we call life.  Each and every day I come into contact with people, driven up and down in life, purely by their emotions.  We so often follow what we think will make us happy, or fulfill our lives, only to be left wanting something more or different.  To use a Christmas reference, one minute we can't wait to open the presents under the tree, the next minute we are frustrated because the credit card bill arrived.  Life comes at us with so much promise of happier times or more fulfilling opportunities, but seldom do they last.  This message is not intended to bring you down, only to help all us gain perspective.  Life very often is not what it seems, OR FEELS.

The only guarantee of a life full of purpose and lasting peace, regardless of your circumstances, is one centered on the person of Jesus Christ.  All else will fade away, and will leave a person wanted for more.  Christmas is about that one gift that will never leave us wanting for more, and the best thing about it is the bill has already been paid:)

Proverbs 3:6, "In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight".

Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
It's always helpful to read through articles from other
authors and use something from their websites.

Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance
from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there, I do think your website could be having
internet browser compatibility issues. Whenever
I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in I.E., it
has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with
a quick heads up! Other than that, great blog!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to
be really something that I think I would never understand.

It seems too complex and extremely broad for
me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

I'm not sure exactly why but this web site is loading incredibly slow
for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?
I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

certainly like your web-site but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts.
Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find
it very troublesome to tell the reality nevertheless I'll surely come again again.

I just got done eating a platter of spaghetti before visiting your site. It sure makes the full feeling all that much better.

I hope you all are having a great weekend. I have a new list for you. Read the latest update on how I compiled the list. I'm still surprised by the results.

I hope you all are having a great weekend. I added a new list. This one is smaller, but still useful. I think the next one will be bigger.

I added a new list. As you'll see it's bigger than most of them. I hope you all have had a great week!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thankshttps://www.activateespnonroku.com/

I was just looking for this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your website. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative websites in top of the list. Normally the top web sites are full of garbage.https://www.roku-com-links.com/

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both educative and interesting, and
let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too
few folks are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy
that I found this during my hunt for something
relating to this.
