…about miracles. …sitting by the fire with my family. …drinking hot chocolate with my best friend. …Christmas parties. …family. …letters to Santa. …breakfast for dinner. …making baked goods and Christmas cookies. …singing along with the Christmas carols. …laughter. …love.
Or maybe it’s more powerful to remember what He DIDN’T do on Earth.
Jesus never picketed a soldier’s funeral.
Jesus never looked a gay man in the eyes and said, “You’re going to hell.”
Jesus never ex-communicated a woman because she got divorced.
Jesus never gave something publicly to be known as a generous person.
Jesus never bombed an abortion clinic.
Jesus never bragged about His church attendance.
Jesus never broke promises to His family.
Jesus never punched someone in the face, or kicked them when they were down.
Jesus never said that America deserves to be number 1.
Jesus never advocated war. Period.
Jesus never scoffed at a homeless woman because she smelled dirty.
And we can go on and on…
Jesus was a man of His words, and His words were bold in their love for people.
“Love your neighbor as yourself”
“Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.”
Do GOOD to those who hate you?! Are we reading this right? How FAR we’ve fallen from Jesus’ teachings! If the issue a Christian wants to combat is abortion, they should be sitting in those abortion clinics, waiting for the women to come back out and they should hold them, and pray for them, and cry with them.
When did Christians start to become the terrorists?When did they start bombing clinics and shooting Pro-Abortion doctors?
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
