Brown will provide


planning services to


City of Trenton


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The Trenton City Commission
voted unanimously to turn the pli
ning services over to City Mana
Taylor Brown at their December
meeting.
Brown's background, include
both education and experience, is
community planning. Prior to be.
hired as Trenton city manager, Bro
worked as Gilchrist County planned
Before voting, the commission
discussed the less than satisfaction
performance the North Central F]
ida Regional Planning Council b
provided the city for years.
Mayor Glen Thigpen reminded
commissioners that the city's cc
prehensive plan has not been upda
and it is now 20 years old and nee
to be updated as soon as possible.
"We would get a more person
ized plan (by hiring Brown) than
would from the North Central Flor
Regional Planning Council," Th
pen said.
Commissioner Tim Kinsey
pressed his concerns that Brow
extra workload after hours wo
take away from the city manage
family time.
Brown explained that with
economy being what it is his fan
has been unable to sell their home
Alachua County, but he felt that
extra income that the planning s
vice job would provide will all
them to make the move to Trenton
Brown also said that he spend
couple of hours each day travel
to and from work. He went on to
the commission that he plans to
that travel time to work on the cit
planning once they move here. 1
city manager went on to say that
feels very comfortable in the posit
as city manager and does not feel
extra duties would be too much.
assured the commissioners, sayi
"If it's more than I can chew, I'll
the first to tell you."
Ultimately, Commissioner Ran
Rutter made a motion to give
planning duties to Brown with

Brown agreed to the terms and as-
sured the commissioners he would
we begin the planning work very soon.
ida Other city business included an
lig- agricultural lease agreement between
the City and Prieston Jones.
ex- Jones, a local hay farmer, came
n's before the commission regarding the
uld lease of 21 acres of property the City
r's of Trenton owns on the east side of
town. Jones has proposed that the
the lease be set for $30 per acre for the
ily first two years and then $40 per acre
in for the rest of the lease which was
the proposed for five years. Jones said
ser- that the reason the rent was less for
ow the first couple of years was because
l. he will have to put several thousand
s a dollars worth of work into the field
ing before it is ready for a hay harvest.
tell The city manager told the com-
use missioners that he had several people
y's call City Hall to inquire about the
he lease; and after some discussion, the
he commissioners felt that it was only
ion fair to open up the proposal process
the to the public so that any local farmers
He wanting to rent the property might be
ng' given a fair chance to do so.

cording to new numbers reported by
Ldy Trenton Police Chief Jim Raven. A
the total of 60 traffic stops were made in

Department's monthly report for No-
vember, firefighters responded to one

Christmas food

baskets will be

given away

The Gilchrist County Unit of Sal-
vationArmy will distribute Christmas
food baskets on Thursday, Dec. 22 at
the Christian Fellowship Church, lo-
cated on Hwy 129 just south of Bell.
This is a combined effort of the
Salvation Army and the Senior Citi-
zens Food Pantry.
For more information on the distri-
bution, call 463-2710.


A host of volunteers make the Toys for Tots distribution possible. Local volunteers included Marjorie Henley, Mike Harrell, Bill Cummings,
Bill Malbradone, Ted Henley, Imogene McLeod, Charles Brydnt, Vince Arcadi, Pat Arcadi, Shirley Harrell, Helen Floyd, Maxine Cummings
and Anita Bryant...just to name a few!


By Carrie A. Mizell
An 8-year-old girl will wake up on
Christmas morning and find a new
game, kickball, wooden toy, stuffed
animal and stocking, all courtesy of
the Toys for Tots program.
Local members of the U.S. Marine
Corps Reserve work to raise money
each year to buy toys for disadvan-
taged children in Gilchrist, Levy and
Dixie counties.
According to 'Pat Arcadi, co-co-
ordinator of .the Tri-County Toys
for Tots, 400 to 500 children living
in Trenton and Bell receive toys for
Christmas courtesy of Toys for Tots.
"It's a big team effort," Arcadi
said.
Of the 28 total volunteers, 12 were
in Trenton on December 14 for the
Gilchrist County distribution, which
was held at Trenton United Method-
ist Church.
A line of anxious parents waited
in line for their turn to shop for toys
at the distribution. Once inside the
fellowship hall, parents were asked


to provide a driver's license, or other
form of picture identification listing
their home address as being in Gil-
christ, Levy or Dixie counties.
Once they checked in, parents were
assigned a Toys for Tots volunteer
who walked along the aisles, assist-
ing as parents browsed the 28 racks
set up for the occasion and stocked
with an array of toys.
Parents began filling out Toys for
Tots applications in October. Arcadi
explained that if an individual al-
ready receives social services or food
stamps then they would automatically
qualify for Toys for Tots. Volunteers
who handled qualifying also accepted
an applicant's check stubs from one
month of work. If the stubs showed
their income at a certain level, then
they too qualified for Toys for Tots.
"With the economy being so bad,
we saw an increase in the number
of applicants this year," Arcadi said.
"We also had more people wanting us
to deliver toys to them, because they

John's Comments
Ily John M. Ayers. '- .l
---------- ---- ---------I /,'17 /. '^ ^*rf -


Early last week, I got a call from
a good friend, Mrs. Jo Buckles, who
is the administrator of Ayers Health
and Rehab. She asked if I could pos-
sibly stop by on December 15 and
take a few pictures of the residents
with Santa.
I enthusiastically agreed, with just
one condition. I had to be able to
bring my kids along. Since I'm usu-
ally a full time momma Wednesday-
Friday, I warned Mrs. Jo that I would
have a 3-year-old and a 2-month-old
tagging along.
Sweet soul that she is, Mrs. Jo
didn't bat an eye. The more the mer-
rier she said. And it's a good thing,
because I also had my 2-year-old
nephew Gus on Thursday as well.
To say I was a tad nervous about
taking three small, and two often
wild, children into a calm and oth-
erwise quiet nursing home would be
putting it mildly.
I prayed for good behavior and
hoped for the best, all the while pre-
paring myself for whatever excite-
ment we might stumble into.
My mom suggested we take soft
peppermints on our visit and let the
kids pass out the candy to residents. I
am proud to say that Allie Claire and
Gus almost tied up in the floor only
one time, and I managed to step be-
tween them before things got ugly on
the meal room floor. Who knew they
would fight over who got to carry the
candy basket around?
I am proud to say that Allie Claire
and Gus were wonderful! They
walked amidst the wheelchairs,


waving to the residents who smiled
at them and passed out their candy.
They were not one bit shy and even
handed Santa and Mrs. Claus some
candy.
As the Christmas music played, I
watched Santa pose for pictures with
each and every resident assembled.
As they sat looking on, the residents
enjoyed cookies and punch and talk-
ed with the kids and me.
At one point, 1 turned around and
found Gus, or Gusy, as Allie calls her
best friend, dancing with the activi-
ties director, Angie Rexroat. Angie
was complimenting Gus on his pret-
ty eyelashes. I thought Gus would,
swoon over all the praise. It was the
funniest thing! After much socializ-
ing, the kids stopped and enjoyed a
cookie and a glass of punch.
We had the best time! The kids
loved it and Mrs. Jo assured me the
residents enjoyed having small chil-
dren there. She even invited us back
and told us to stop by at suppertime
any day of the week.
I think visiting the senior citizens
at Ayers is going to be an annual tra-
dition for us! Respect for the elderly
is a huge life lesson and one I want
my children to learn early on. As Le-
viticus 19:32 says, "Stand up in the
presence of the. aged, show respect
for the elderly and revere your God. I
am the Lord."
If you're looking for a new fani-
ily tradition during the holiday sea-
son, let me suggest spreading a little
Christmas joy to local senior citizens.
It can be as simple as a soft pepper-
mint and a smile.

If Mary Had Said No

By: Dr. I larold Pease
Consider the dilemma of the mIoth-
er of Jesus when she was told of her
soon to be pregnancy without benefit
of marriage. A quarter of a century
ago Mrs. Mary Santomaro wrote an
unusual Christmas poem that has be-
come a personal favorite-"If Mary
Had Said No." It warrants deep and
serious reflection. Normally my read-
ers are not treated to a poem and/or
something written by another but this
Christmas message cannot be said
more profoundly by anyone other
than to whom the message was giv-
en.
She was a young Israeli girl
Living with her mother, Anne.
Thrilled that Joseph,
House of David,
Sought her daughter's hand.
Anne was happy for she felt
She had not long to live.
Joseph would be good to her,
A happy life to Mary give.
The betrothal was announced
To family and all friends.
The preparations had been made.
Soon wedding vows would blend.
But then a strange thing happened
One day as Mary prayed,
Gabriel stood by her and spoke
"Hail, full ofgrace..." he said,
Then, "...the Lordis with thee.
Blessed art thou among women."
And he told her even more,
She would bear a son, this omen.
She wondered at his greeting words.
She knew no man.
How could this be?
"The Holy Spirit shall come
upon thee,"
"...the power...Most High
...over shadow thee; ..."
This young Israeli girl tlen spoke,
"Behold the handmaid of the Lord;"
She accepted what God had asked,
"... be it done ...
according to Thy word."
We all know as a direct result
A Blessed Babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon a blessed morn.
For thirty-odd years, Emmanuel,
Then we put Him to scorn,
Crucified Him on a Cross
And all man's sins were borne
By One Who could repair
The wrongs that man had done
And once again restore to each.
Adopted daughter, son.
Since that time more have died
Willingly for His Name.
In every age, from every land,
Sprung from martyrs, they came.
Christians,
they have long been called,
Followers of the Holy One,
Living what He taught and lived
That triumph over death he won.
Many people since that time
Fought great evils to live as He
Carrying the flame of Eternal Truth,
Heads bowed, on bended knee.
But what if Mary had said, "No!"?
Suppose that she had then
Told God, "It's not convenient."
"Can't afford the stipend."
She might have said,.
"There's no way!
Everyone will talk!"
"I don't want to have a child."
Today, would any blame her balk?
But if she had, chances are '


Does It Really Matter What I Believe?
(Kent Heaton)


Belief is the foundation of our relationship with God.
Without belief we cannot approach the word of God.
Without belief we cannot accept what the Bible tells us. If
we do not have belief in God, there remains nothing to
live for but ourselves. Genesis 1:1 sets the standard for the
revelation of the word of God. "In the beginning God
created the heavens and the earth." Does it matter if I
believe this? Without the acceptance that there was a
beginning created by God and that all things were created
by Him, Genesis 1:2 through Revelation 22:21 means only
what we choose to believe. If you pose this question to
most people, they would agree to the importance of belief.
However, acceptance of what to believe changes as the
pages of God's word are unfolded.
Does it really matter if I believe that God created the
heavens and the earth? Without this belief an acceptance
in the humanistic evolution of man is the only answer.
Man is nothing more than an animal and will treat his
fellow man as an animal. He becomes a savage beast who
destroys and conquers what he desires.'A belief in God
will show man that he is made in the image of God
(Genesis 1:27; 9:4-6). The value of believing that God
created man is to see the glory of how man is made in the
image of the Creator.
Does it really matter if I believe in the purity of God's
word? To suggest the "purity of God's word" is to suggest
that we either must accept all that is found in His word'or
to pick and choose what we want to believe. The reason
that religious people are divided today is because
everyone believes the parts of the Bible they choose to
believe. This seems to satisfy the wishes and desires of
man but not of God.
God told Adam and Eve not to eat of the tree of
knowledge of good and evil. They chose to ignore the
command of God (Genesis 3). In the days of Noah, the


world chose to follow their own desires and the result was
the destruction of the whole world save eight souls (1
Peter 3:20). In the days of the Judges, "there was no king
in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own
eyes" (Judges 21:25). David took Bathsheba to his own
and committed adultery and murder (2 Samuel 11,12).
Uzzah touched the Ark of the Covenant when the oxen
stumbled and God struck him dead (2 Samuel 6). Does it
matter what we believe? These examples clearly show the
importance of what we believe and what God thinks of
what we believe.
Jesus told His disciples, "I am the way, the truth, and
the life: no man comet unto the Father, but by me"
(John 14:6). If we do not believe that He is the only way,
the only truth and the only life, we will not see God. Jesus
said, "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but
he that believeth not shall be damned" (Mark 16:16). Do
we dare disbelieve His word? If we all believe in Jesus
and we believe in the word of God, why are we not all
united? Is it because the word of God is too hard to
understand or that we choose to believe what we want?
Who then will be saved? Jesus said the only ones who will
see heaven are those who do the will of the Father
(Matthew 7:21-23). It matters what we believe! Ignoring
what we choose to ignore will not save us. Believing all
that God has put in His word will save us.
flow wonderful is the love and grace of God. He saves us
with unmerited favor. Yet, if we choose to rest upon these
promises only without belief in the complete word of God,
we ignore the grace given through Jesus Christ. To believe
in God is to believe in every word He has given and to
Ibllow the pattern found in His word. Let all reject the
tenets of man and accept only the pure word of God. "If
any manm speak, let himt speak as the oracles of God" (I
Peter 4:11).

The world would long be gone
And none of us would be here
To choose the right or wrong.
Long before we even arrived
The world would have become
A more-sophisticated people,
Fewer, hedonistic, everyone.
There would be no call to peace,
No inalienable rights assumed,
The mighty would
gobble up the weak,
No intercessions for the doomed.
Entire nations would disappear,
Progeny ripped asunder
For within their very bodies
Sprang no new lives to encumber.
Pretty soon God
would call off the world
Knowing we would never change.
Why put up with us any more,
This people of such evil-arrange?
One thing, though,
we'd have no need
To make decisions we now do...
To kill each other, do as we want,
Live our life and abort a new!
But Mary didn't do that.
Not a wail of complaint was wrung.
"Behold, the handmaid of the Lord."
For this Jesus Christ was sprung!
There are many, including my own
daughter, that pray everyday that
they might have one of these rejected
babies because their own bodies will
not allow their having their own.
Instead, over a million and a half
mothers in the United States annu-
ally choose to extinguish that which
moves inside them.

member this, we have our family and
our Savior and that is the most impor-
tant things of all.


COOKING AND CARRYING' ON
It is that sweet, sweet time of
year again when we celebrate
the birth of Jesus. Please-join
me as I read once again the -'
beautiful story of the birth of
baby Jesus. Let us take a few i
minutes to think about the fact
that God so loved the world .
that He sent His Son which is
our greatest gift. I hope y'all
have a very blessed Christmas Ms,
season.


G/i/w-t/nias Oto-r/{
And it came to pass in those days
that a decree Went out from Caesar
Augustus that all the world should be
registered.
This census first took place while
Quirinius was governing Syria.
So all went to be registered, every-
one to his own city.
Joseph also went up from Gali-
lee, out of the city of Nazareth, into
Judea, to the city of David, which is
called Bethlehem, because he was of
the house and lineage of David, to be
registered with Mary, his betrothed
wife, who was with child.
So it was, while they were there,
the days were completed for her to be
delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn
Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling
cloths, and laid Him in a manger, be-
cause there was no room for them in
the inn.
Now there were in the same coun-


try shepherds living out in the fields,
keeping watch over their flock by
night.
And behold, an angel of the Lord
stood before them, and the glory of
the Lord shone around them, and
they were greatly afraid.
Then the angel said to them, "Do
not be afraid, for behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy which will
be to all people.
"For there is born to you this day
in the city of David a Savior, who is
Christ the Lord.
"And this will be the sign to you:
You will find a Babe wrapped in
swaddling cloths, lying in a man-.
ger."
And suddenly there was with the
angel a multitude of the heavenly
host praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest, And
on earth peace, goodwill toward
men!"
Luke 2:1-14 NKJV

A voter's response


Guardian Ad


to a television news Litem
segment Christmas


Senators, Please listen!
On Tuesday night. ABC news,
Washington Watcher had a piece on
thene dollar coin and how the gov-
ernment is wasting money.
They said that it cost 32 cents to
produce a one dollar coin and that is
right, but they failed to look at the big
picture. The coin will last 32 years
and that is a cost of one cent a year,
instead of ten cents a year to replace
one dollar bills.
Canada has asked us to stop with
the one dollar bills. Countries all
over the world have stopped with
paper money and use more coins.
What's wrong with us!
The Treasury Department will no
longer print U.S. Bonds because it
costs them too much to print. They
want you to set up an account and
buy on line. They said that will save
them millions.
It just amazes me how they can
say one thing saves money, but can't
see the real savings.
Norm Conti,
Voter


Thank you

Dear Gilchrist County Journal,
Thank you for sponsoring the
scooter for Clristmas on Main Street.
Since the scooter was too little that
my brother won for us to ride, we are
giving it to a little boy who doesn't
have much for Christmas.
We are learning this year helping
others is important.
Thank you again.

Praise for the

community

Dear Editor,
The generosity of our community
has been extremely heartwarming
over the past few weeks. Bell Ele-
mentary School has had many phone
calls and people drop by to ask if they
could help families in need or provide
Christmas presents for children. One
couple in particular gave a very gen-
erous donation but requested to re-
main anonymous and that we utilize
the money for the needs of families.
These acts of kindness and concern
for students is what makes our com-
munity such a special place to live in.
The staff at Bell Elementary School
is very appreciative and would like to
thank everyone that has given a child
a chance to have Christmas.
Sherry Lindsey,
Principal,
Bell Elementary School


Dear Editor,
Once again our community has
stepped up for our most vulnerable
citizens, our abused and abandoned
children involved in the court sys-
tem. The Guardian ad Litem Program
appreciates our community for the
outpouring of gifts for our Sponsor
a Child for Christmas program this
year. Each and every one of our chil-
dren will have 5-6 presents to unwrap
this Christmas.
It is our honor, the Guardian ad
Litem Volunteers and staff, to deliver
presents to children who have been
separated from their families dur-
ing these holidays. On one occasion
delivering presents, a five year old
looked up at me and asked, "How did
Santa know where we were?" His lit-
tle sisters and he were allowed to open
one present while I was there. Their
shrieks and smiles wiped away the
awful allegations that brought them
under the protection of the court un-
til their parents can hopefully reduce
the risk to reoffend and they can be
safely reunified. Our office called an
aunt who is caring for her niece and
nephew and she was crying, which
had our staff crying, because she did
not know how she was going to have
Christmas for them. Once again the
community stepped up.
Bringing some normalcy to these
children's lives is wonderful, Speak- -
ing up for them in court is essential.
You can be that voice. Join our vol-


unteers in Gilchrist and Levy Coun-
ties in speaking up for the best inter-
ests of our children. Call our office
in Chiefland, 352-493-6050, and ask
how you can make a difference in a
child's life. Our volunteer training
starts January 10, 2012.
To the community we thank you for
your support. Have a Merry Christ-
mas and a Happy New Year to all.
Michael G. Whiting

Gilchrist County high school

seniors participate in

annual Career Expo


Submitted
On November 29, Gilchrist Coun-
ty high school seniors participated
in the district's annual Career Expo.
This year's event was held at Bell
High School and consisted of coun-
try-western themed activities and en-
tertainment. The students were greet-
ed that morning with country music
and outstanding decorations, created
by Mrs. Lisa Hudson's art students.
Throughout the morning, the students
rotated through several presentations
where they learned about different
career fields, college programs, and
scholarship opportunities.
Among the presenters were Aman-
da Schulz, college recruiter, and Bri-
an Dopson, Dean of Academic Pro-
grams, both from Florida Gateway


College. Mr. Dopson also brought
along a talented group of Florida
Gateway College students who enter-
tained and educated our high school
students through live musical perfor-
mances. Students also heard presen-
tations from Erin Rice of the Santa
Fe College recruitment office. David
Bradley motivated and inspired our
students with a presentation on set-
ting goals and making wise choices
regarding education, careers, family,
and social life.
Mandy NesSmith and Dana Col-
lins, the Trenton and Bell High School
guidance counselors who were both
dressed in full western attire, also
provided tips for students about em-
ployment, as well as ideas about col-
lege and scholarship planning. Mrs.

Santa come together. A Christmas wreath pin out of puzzle pieces was a delight to see come together also. Cupcakes
and punch were a hit for all of our Busy Bees. Christmas card placemats were the other craft they all enjoyed. Treat
bags were handed out as the Busy Bees left the building.
Ms. Elaine and Ms. Anna were thrilled to see one hundred percent of our children come to our
meeting. We will start our new year finishing up our project for the Fashion Revue.
The Busy Bees 4-H Club would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New
Year. Welcome home to all our Troops who help keep our country safe.



Merry Christmas

Happy New Year

To the great people of the City of Trenton:
Thanks for allowing me to continue to serve as your mayor. Over the past seven years I have
been honored to represent you, first as a City Commissioner for three years; then, as your
mayor for the past four years. My 2b10/2011 term was one of many challenges and changes.
Many of these arising out of difficult decisions that required many hours of deliberation by
your Board of Commissioners.
As 1 embark upon a new term, my plan is to stay consistent in the paths traveled over the last
four years: to make common sense decisions and continue to work alongside staff in
monitoring spending and striving to reduce debt, while looking to the future for expansion
and replacement of infrastructure. The City of Trenton has many needs that are not
uncommon for cities our size. The need for updating costly equipment, replacement of
underground pipe. and road renovation is not being overlooked. We are simply trying to
make upgrades as means are available through surplus funds and grant opportunities.
I would like to extend a sincere "Thanks" to our staff: The hands and feet of the Board of
Commissioners. City Manager, Taylor Brown, and the capable staff of our city have worked
diligently to create surpluses by reducing spending and operating inside the budgets given to
them. Mr. Brown's focus on efficiency and training is effectively advancing the quality of
public service provided by our dedicated staff; thus, maximizing the value of your tax dollar.
1 would also like to express'my appreciation to a cooperative ,Board of Commissioners.
Trenton's progress continues because of these public servants who make, often difficult,
decisions to keep the City moving in a positive direction, while keeping your taxes and
service fees to a minimum.
If you have any questions or concerns, you may always contact me at: 463-0312.

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, December 15, at the Levy Coun-
ty Quilt Museum. Pam brought in a
box of goodies to see if anyone could
use them. Sometimes someone has
a lot of things they don't want any
more, so they bring in the items to
share with others.
We will be taking the quilts and
crafts to the State Fair soon. We have
been entering the quilts and crafts for
many years and just in the past few
years, we have been helping judge
the entries. We don't get to judge our
own items.
The bus to the State Fair is filling
up. The cost is $24, which includes
entrance to the Fair. The date is
Tuesday, February 14. Call.352-493-
2801 to sign up or for more details.
We leave Chiefland at 7:00 a.m., Wil-
liston at 7:30 a.m. and Ocala at 8:00
a.m. We will leave Tampa at 4:30
p.m. and be home before 8 p.m..
Greg and six young men were out
Tuesday. They cleaned the freezer,
watered plants and many other jobs
around the Museum.


Ailine Koi has finished her Oriental wall hanging. It will be going to the


State Fair.
Thursday dinner was great with
sauerkraut, bar-b-que chicken,
franks, fried chicken, creamed corn,
beans, potato salad, greens, apple pie,
chocolate cake and so much more.

Santa visits Ayers Health & Rehab
ItWaUlk d I m ll3 O Wp t f


By Angie Land
On Christmas Day, 1864, Henry
Wadsworth Longfellow composed
the poem, "I Heard the Bells on
Christmas Day" that later became a
well-known Christmas carol. The
carol tells of Longfellow's experience
of hearing the church bells ring out
"peace on earth, good will to men"
on Christmas Day, during the darkest
period of the Civil War. Still months
away from Lee's surrender to Grant
at the Appomattox Courthouse, and
grieving the tragic death of his wife
Fanny and the crippling war injury of
his son Charles, Longfellow penned
the second stanza of the poem, "And
in despair I bowed my head--There is
no peace on earth I said--For hate is
strong and mocks the song--Of peace
on earth, good will to men."
If that were the last verse in the
song, it would indeed pronounce a


bleak Christmas...not unlike how
many may be feeling this year. Peace
on earth and good will to men doesn't
seem the prevalent theme to many
facing unemployment, economic
downturns, families separated by
miles, death or divorce, and the un-
certainty of the future. Yet, it was in
his despair that LIlngfeMllow heard the
bells "more loud and deep" proclaim-
ing "God is not dead, nor doth He
sleep--The wrong shall fail, the right
prevail--With peace on earth, good
will to men."
We need to be reminded of this truth
during the Christmas season ;and per-
haps when the trimmings are stripped
away, we can see more clearly. My
family has joined the ranks of many
this season who are "scaling back" on
our Christmas shopping and giving
more to those in need...and yet the
simplicity of this kind of Christmas

really points us back to the baby in a
manger some 2000 years ago. Where
angels themselves sang the carols
and invited a field full of shepherds
who probably smelled a tad too much
like their sheep, to celebrate the very
first Christmas. This baby who was
foretold hundreds of years before, in
the greatest of detail: "For unto us a
child is born, to us a son is given and
the government shall be on his shoul-
ders and he will be called Wonderful
Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting
Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6
reminds us that- indeed God is not
dead, nor does He sleep...and with-
out a doubt, left heaven to come to
earth...because our hearts matter.
"For God so loved the world that
He gave His only begotten Son, that
whosoever believes in Him shall not
perish, but have everlasting life."
Have a Blessed Christmas!
