May the Calendar Keep Bringing Happy Holidays To You

I'm really excited about Christmas this year.  It will be different, that's for sure.  It will be the first year ever that I will not be with all the family, which will be strange.  I will miss our yearly traditions and Christmas Eve/Christmas Day schedule.  Kaldis on Christmas Eve morning, followed by cookie making or ice skating or some other Winter activity, getting ready for the Hunt family party, driving to the festivities, catching up and exchanging gifts with everyone, leaving to go to church, sleeping, special breakfast and coffee, and gifts with the family in our pajamas.  All the happy family time.

Mom and Dad and I will be putting up the white lights outside, and setting up the tree before I go, which will be fun, and we already watched Charlie Brown with a Bailey's-spiced hot beverage, so it's not really 'No family Christmas time at all.'  When we get to Paris, Taylor and I are planning on finding a little tree to put up in our apartment, and I will be bringing a few lightweight gifts that we can open on Christmas morning.  I'm sure there will be some face time calls back home as well.  I'm also hoping for a little snow on the ground for Christmas, an event that has maybe happened a handful of times in my life.

    From the Garden of Eden to the present there has been God's truth and Satan's lies.

    GOD'S TRUTH: Genesis 2:17 "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."(NKJV)

    SATAN'S LIE: Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said to the woman, "You will not surely die.(NKJV)

    GOD'S TRUTH: Matthew 28:1-7....6 "He is not here He is risen....7.....He is risen from the dead....(NKJV)

    SATAN'S LIE: Matthew 28:11-15.....12 When they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, 13 saying , "Tell them, 'His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.'....(NKJV)

    Today there are men telling God's truth, however, there are others who spreading Satan's lies.

    GOD'S TRUTH: Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.(NKJV)

    SATAN'S LIE: He who does not believe will not be condemned; because there are many ways to be saved other than believing in Jesus.

    SATAN'S LIE: He who believes is saved by faith only and should be immersed in water as a testimony of faith.

    SATAN'S LIE: Water baptism is not essential to the forgiveness of sins; because baptism is a work of man.

    SATAN'S LIE: Good works save us, believing and being baptized do not save us.

    SATAN'S LIE: Men are saved by grace alone, God forces men to have faith so they can be saved by faith only.

    SATAN' LIE: Men need to be immersed in water to join the denomination of their choice, however, they do not need to be baptized in order to go to heaven
