THE REASON WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS

THE REASON WE CELEBRATE:
The Birth of Jesus (Luke 2:1-20 - NIV)

 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.

 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the an…

The latest musical to hit the big screen is Les Misérables. I really liked the 1998 version and am looking forward to this new rendition. I really like the song Anne Hathaway sings in the trailer and I love the fact that the songs weren't pre-recorded then lipsynced (that's my pet peeve with newer musicals; all that auto-tune…

Fall Faves: Food/ Happy Thanksgiving

Food The main food for the fall is the pumpkin but I've tried pumpkin and it tasted awful to me. I know others love it but this is about what I love to have in the fall. LOL!!
Almonds (I use to hate almonds after I had it in some candy but eating it alone was better.)

Black on Black Politics

Image
I'm a black conservative. I've noticed for years how Black democrats turn on any one who doesn't believe the way they do and then they claim they accept everyone.

Beyonce, who embodies that embrace and love everyone persona, showed her true colors when Obama, whom she donated hundreds of thousands to his 2012 campaign, was re-elected. She celebrated by posting a hand written letter that statement that said, "take that mitches" hinting at the "b" swear word. In posting that little message she demonstrated for the world to see how she doesn't respect people with different views from hers.



    Tamera Mowry-Housley got blasted on twitter when she retweeted a comment by Fox News Channel anchor Greta Van Susteren. The original tweet said "I think I might turn this off if it were not my job to watch it...the interruptions make it impossible to learn anything." Tamera added, "That's all I'ma say about the debate. ;) God bless us, ever…

The Fountainhead 2012 Presidential Election

Image
The Fountainhead is a film very appropriate for today. As Obama said we are choosing between two fundamentally different ideas for this country. Obama's ideas would have us become a more collective people dependent upon the government and subordinate to other countries. Romney's ideas are to restore the economy of our country and bring us back as the great youth of the world, believing in individuality and personal responsibility.

I correlate this film to the 2012 Presidential Election because I believe our Nation especially the youth have forgotten how we became such a strong and independent country in the first place. As my father says, "we can not look just to our own time but to the history before us." We should learn from the past mistakes and victories with the concept of time results. The Fountainhead is an older film recorded in the year 1949 based upon a novel by Ayn Rand by the same name. The film focuses on an Howard Roark, an architect with courage and c…

Scariest Things from the Bible

Image
Halloween is suppose to be a scary time of year, the time when everyone is trying to scare each other (besides April 1st). I believe the scariest time hasn't occurred yet. Many people who are waiting for the end of the world believe in some sort of Apocalypse. Some believe we'll all perish by an Ice Age, alien attack, or continental collisions and lately many people have been obsessed with a Zombie Apocalypse. My own convictions about the ending Apocalypse are inline with the word of God. Unlike the Mayan's, JW's and several other predictors of specific time there is no date on Jesus' return and if anyone says any different they are telling a falsehood. According to Matthew 24:36 in the words of Jesus, "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." As it's written in 2 Peter 3:8-9 GOD's timing is not like ours, "But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like…

Fall Faves: Fun

Image
Well it's officially Fall in my neck of the woods and I can't wait to have the most fun that Fall has to offer. Here are few things I enjoy this time of the year.

Activities Nature walks: I enjoy seeing the Hand of God at work on the trees. By Mona Zubair
Art Festivals: I absolutely love Art Fesitvals but the Fall versions are very special to me.  By nchoz
Jumping in leaves By ColinsPicz
Drive in (early fall though) By Thomas Hawk
Going to Concerts: Unlike Summer concerts where people travel. Fall concerts have more locals in attendance. I like the community feel of knowing so many others enjoy my same taste in music. By Wheeler Sparks

Music
Jazz is one of my favorite genres of music and this first song comes off "Common Presents Just Wright Mixtape Volume 1", a free jazz mixtape I've played every fall since I've had it. I can't find the download link anymore sadly. I would have liked to share with you all. The rest of the songs' genre varies.

180 Day of September

Image
October Baby just came out yesterday
I hope you all get to see the film whether you disagree or agree with abortion this message should be spread. It's based loosely on Gianna Jessen's life and she even sings a song for the film's soundtrack. I can't wait to see it myself.




Here's what this day is all about...
Living Waters has marked the second Wednesday of every month as "180" Day. The purpose of "180" Day is to keep the momentum of "180" through consistent, monthly days of "180"-related online and real-world activities. In so doing, we will continue the work of saving the physical lives of unborn children, and seeking to see the lost come to genuine repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.



9/11 Remembrance

Image
My tale is similar to others. I was nowhere near the Twin Tower, the Pentagon nor Flight 93 on September 11th, 2001. I only saw the second plane's destruction from a tube and watched the events unfold in disbelief. Like many Americans; however, those events have been etched into my memory and have been a cause for sorrow. I was 11 at that time and had only a year worth of political knowledge, little did I know 9/11 would deepen my political interest for the next 11 years. At 18 I'd stop calling myself a Republican and change to the more befitting title of "Conservative".

  As a conservative disasters such as this reminds me of the importance of National Security. This is another reason why Bill Clinton is a man of no integrity. This is why Border patrol is so necessary. This is why we need Nuclear arms and for them not to be diminished to barely nothing by Obama. I do not agree with the way the TSA is handling affairs. Americans should not be treated as criminals…
