  4. Laura, Thanks for the reminder that we're not worshiping a helpless baby in a manger. I see that you live near Joplin--our paper had a story about the Butterfly People of Joplin this Sunday. Heard any stories?

  5. In Christ, yes. Thank you for this beautiful reminder.

  6. I'm with Hope, this is a post that should be printed so that we never forget. Thanks for sharing it at the prairies this week.


Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
