In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
God was born in the flesh so we could be born of the Spirit.
Jesus was born because we die, and he died so we could live.
God came and lived with man so that man my live with Him forever.
It was God, who out of his great love for every person that He left his
throne and all its glory above and was born a baby in a manger to live a life
unto a cruel death so we could be resorted into a personal relationship with Him, which is the greatest gift of all.
Have a very merry Christ centered Christmas.

Praise The Lord, We got the bus done and it works great!! Thans for the prayers!!

Things are picking up as we get closer to Christmas and I am finding myself down at our shop helping to put an automatic transmission in our bus. It had a five speed manual that was starting to show signs that it is thinking about quitting. So here we switching it out, trying to have it all done by the time we leave this coming Saturday Morning. We are hoping to have the engine and tranny set back in the bus by tomorrow evening. That would give us Thursday and Friday to hook every thing up and make sure it all works. You can pray that everything goes well and that we will get it done in good time.

And just for fun, here is some facts I researched on the internet:

As I have talk with people about my flying I have ran across two types of people, those that love flying and those that are scared to fly. Now there is some middle ground, as there are few who are not scared to fly, they just do not like it, which is the case with one of my sisters. However, for the most part, fear is why most people who do not like fly, do not like to fly. Nevertheless, it does not take long to find out that flying is not what scares people; it is crashing, and being injured or killed. So I decided to do some research and find out, just how safe is flying, what are the odds of being injured or killed. What I found was that chance of being killed in an airplane accident was approximately 1 in 350,000. That is quite safe considering that your chance of being killed in an auto accident is almost 19 times greater at 1 in 18,585. Yes, the only thing that scares me about flying is the drive to the airport. Then I found something that really got my attention, and that was that chances are 1in 4,745 that you die falling out of bed, no wonder we say bed time prayers. You can sleep good though, because the odds of a meteor falling on you house is only 1 in 182 trillion, at least we don’t have worry about that. However, you had best be careful taking a shower as the odds of fatally slipping in the bath or shower is 1 in 2232. And whatever you do, do not go to the hospital, as the odds are 8 out of 10 that you will die in a hospital. So if you can make it out of bed, through the shower, and survive the drive to the airport you have the worst behind you, and are in good shape.

Habits, What are they? Do we make habits or do we simply change our habits to make better use of the time? Lets say someone goes to the coffee shop every morning and gets a donut and coffee. Then he decides he wants to start running to get rid of some of them donuts. So instead of going to the coffee shop he goes and runs a couple miles. Know the question is, did he (a) Make a new habit?
(b) break an old habit?
Or c) simply change his habits?
We could say he has made a new habit, because he is doing something he was not doing before. We could also say he broke an old habit because he is not doing something he always used to do. Also, instead of eating donuts and drinking coffee and gaining weight, He is now running and getting in shape. Therefore he changed his habits. So tell me, Which is it?

Ps 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

After being gone for three weeks we were home for to days, and then we are on the road again, but just for the weekend. Getting Christmas music worked up for the season seems to be a lot of work for just one month, but somehow, it always seems worth it. Here is a bumper sticker I thought was good, considering how Christmas has become so commercialized. It read,

“The best things in life, are not “things.” ”
