Celebrate the Life of Jesus Christ
Each Christmas, we celebrate the life of Jesus Christ, the Light of the World.
By following His teachings, we let His light shine… in our lives and in the lives of others.

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
~ Matthew 5:16
I love to be involved through service… and I’m my happiest, when I can do it quietly, even anonymously. *Grin* And I certainly don’t like to share my religious beliefs, because too often it has led to friendships lost, and sometimes even misunderstanding. However, I have realised through working for 25 years in DTP (Desktop Publishing), Printing and Advertising and now Online and Social Media, that we need to share what we believe, who we are and what we do… we need to write and publish and share the Kindness that is given and received, the unsung Heroes that walk through our lives, the unknown people that make a Difference and influence for Good, because, the opposite certainly inundates us with every click and scroll on any device.
We need to write, and publish, and like, and share ALL that is good in our lives, so that we can focus on our blessings, celebrate the miracles and give acknowledgement and thanks, to Him who blesses us all.
I also discovered a really interesting truth during 2017, when I asked for help with a small project, that I wasn’t in a position to afford… a little from a few, and a lot from one, made the difference in the lives of many… and that most people generally want to help. However, it’s embarrassing to go to a home with a dozen needy children with just a few beanies and bars of soap, or a couple of t-shirts, or just a bag of groceries…. Yet, when you have an idea that you share… all those individuals are willing to contribute what they can… and those contributions together, are like the Windows of Heaven being opened with too many blessings to count, and immeasurable abundance, that blesses and makes a difference in the recipients hearts and the lives of all those involved.
This year, during December… we are going to share our small acts and Heart To Heart projects, because most of it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of family and friends, and even strangers we have never met.
Each day during December, we’ll share a “Story A Day” and an act of kindness or a “Heart to Heart Project” with you, by following our Saviours teachings. *Smile*
