Christmas questions

Luke 2:19 NLT
but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.

I thought we would take a bit different turn as we are at the end of the week and as Christmas is only one week away.  This might help you get to know me a little better, but I really want it to point you toward what really matters all the time, not just at Christmas.

Here are just a few questions to think though (feel free to post this with your own answers)

Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping Paper… I love those cool presents with lots and lots of tape

Real tree or artificial? Artificial … but use something to put a Christmas smell around the house

When do you put up the tree? When Julie says it is time and typically around thanksgiving

Do you like eggnog? No, never, nit

Favorite person in the Christmas story?  Zechariah and his response to God

Favorite gift received as a child?  Drums maybe

Favorite Christmas Movie? it is a three way tie: Elf, Home Alone and It’s a Wonderful Life

Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes

Favorite Christmas song? O Holy Night

Angel on the tree top or a star? Whatever Julie wants, but my parents always had the same angel (sweet memories)

Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas morning only

Favorite Christmas memory?  My church used to have a living nativity, and it was always fun to share the Christmas story with thousands of people with hundreds of people helping

Gingerbread or sugar cookies? Sugar Cookies but almost anything cinnamon or donuts

Do you like Fruitcake? NO, never, nit

Reason you enjoy Christmas?  Jesus celebration because He gives us abundant life

Take some time to share your Christmas with others.  Maybe go out of your way to serve someone, and I would suggest that you give to or serve a person that cannot give you anything in return.

This is the season to be selfless and to give.  Let others see Jesus in and through your life!

Matthew 1:21  NLT
And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.

END OF THE YEAR GIFT: This Christmas and at the end of year would you give a gift to The Community Fellowship as we serve those who are hungry, hurting or homeless in the name of Jesus?  All gifts are tax deductible.  Mail yours to PO Box 388, Collinsville, VA 24078 and mark it one of these: general fund, Dream Center (homeless and feeding ministry), Vision fund (completion of new campus) or please give online at
