Get a new attitude for the new year

For many of us, this past year has been a struggle. We've struggled to keep our families together, we've struggled to pay our bills and we've struggled to find happiness in the middle of our storms. But as we grow from day to day, we understand that our struggles are simply a part of our living, and your attitude about the situation is what allows you to see the silver lining that surrounds every cloudy moment in life.

Are we making the right preparations for heaven?

Can we live a better life? Could it be that we need a better job,or more money? Perhaps we need new friends? Our society seeks the better life in these and other things. Now there is nothing wrong with a better job, making more money and having new friends, unless they are all we live for.

Accept God's gift to mankind

Everyone loves gifts and during the Christmas season, many of them are exchanged. People will go into debt to buy gifts for their children, families and friends. Often, caught up in the hype of gift-giving, we forget the real purpose of this holiday. We forget that this is a day that we have set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God's gift to the world.

Putting disappointment in perspective

At this time of year a person gets used to traveling down certain roads and looking for Christmas lights. Some people consistently light up their homes or lawns with these beautiful displays. This year I have noticed that some such displays are missing – my guess is that it could be because of the economy.
