Xmas without Christ

As I look all around, I’m reminded a bit

By those celebrating the joys of Christmas

The sellers & shoppers & stores all alike

Window displays of Christmas without Christ

How could this be? I said to myself

Overlooking the One who supplies all of our help

Why children don’t know the true meaning of this day

How do you explain it? And what do you say?

When we’re more concerned with gadgets and gifts

Maybe we’re the ones taking Christ out of Christmas

I challenge you to ask yourself one simple thing

To each one of you, what does Christmas really mean?

Would you still be joyous with no Christmas bells?

Would you still celebrate with no money for holiday sales?

What reason to smile without garland & bows

How about the birth of our Savior, from which all blessings flow

But if I don’t give presents what will everyone say?

How would I explain with no gifts to give on Christmas Day?

2 Philippians Verses 9&10

Explain how God took the name of Jesus and exalted Him

Above every other name in Heaven and on Earth

Because Jesus, our Lord, is the Last and the First

It is at His name that every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess

That He is the reason that we have been blessed

For our Savior has paid the ultimate price

Born on this day a living sacrifice

He came down from Heaven so that we may live

Yea, it’s nice to get presents, but God wants us to give

Give thanks & honor & glory & praise

Keeping Christ in Christmas, today and always

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
