  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?

Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
