I think it’s pretty rare to find a real, uncomplicated Christian nowadays. One who simply follows the “law” of love, which Jesus said is the most important commandment and fulfills all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22:36-40 (NIV) “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.

Christmas has always been my favorite holiday…even when I thought I had to say Easter (excuse me, Resurrection Sunday) was in order to sound “holy” or whatever.

Welcome to the temporary home of my blog! Glad you stopped by. Hopefully I’ll have the “real” one up soon (within a few weeks)…but I didn’t want to wait. 🙂 Keep in mind this is my blog. I may say things you don’t like, or disagree with, or that aren’t things you may think I should be saying. I’m entitled to free speech, and because I hold a different opinion does not mean I’m wrong. Please respect that and don’t […]
