In this, the holiest time of the year, people of faith gather family and friends close to share fellowship and celebrate the life of the only One who was without sin. In March of 2013 I was taken to the hospital and spent nine days being tended to by some incredible people. Years of abuse had taken its toll. I have severe emphysema, Type II diabetes, a pacemaker for an irregular heartbeat, and sleep apnea so severe I can’t sleep without a machine. After 40 years of smoking cigarettes I stopped cold turkey. It was time. My cardiologist said my choices were to quit and be able to enjoy my grandchildren outside or continue smoking and they could come see me sitting in a chair and connected to an O2 machine.
My grandchildren are all I have left. The only thing worth living for. I am most grateful that I’ve been granted another Christmas season to share with them. I live with the realization that time is running out so every day Almighty God allows me is truly a gift.
CHRIST is the reason for this season of love and joy. Secularists are missing the Spirit and busy themselves with things of this world. Even during this time the so-called progressives feel compelled to dispense their own brand of hatred and spite. They are consumed with it. It must be in their DNA.

College Student Driven Out Of School For Backing Trump
In September, shortly after starting at the Pennsylvania women’s school, Andi Moritz made a post on the Bryn Mawr’s ride-sharing Facebook page, asking if anybody wanted to accompany her during a Saturday spent campaigning for Trump. Moritz said she wanted another girl along to ensure her safety since she was carpooling with a man she didn’t know.
The request turned out to be a big mistake, as Moritz was bombarded with hundreds of comments from fellow students, most of them extremely hostile.

Israel Official: Obama Administration Secretly Worked With Palestinians To Craft ‘Shameful’ UN Resolution
“President Obama and Secretary Kerry are behind this shameful move against Israel at the UN.

Jimmy Carter Is The Only Former President To RSVP For Trump’s Inauguration
George W. Bush hasn’t decided if he’s attending the event either, his spokesman Freddy Ford said, and will make his decision after the new year.
Democrats Plan Alternate Mega-Concert For Inauguration Day
The idea is to counter Trump’s inauguration and garner higher television ratings than the swearing-in. Normally, the presidential inaugurals carry several a-list acts, but Trump has had issues booking artists to perform. So far, the only confirmed acts are Jackie Evancho (singing the National Anthem), the Rockettes, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
