Living Our Dream

It’s Official

Yes sir, it is official. Summer is here and Lone Star Yogi is about to become busy, busy, busy. For most destination RV parks, the busy season runs from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend. Kids are out of school and families are ready for vacation.

summerCarol has had a great experience working in the registration office and working at the gate on weekends. By the time she gets home after a day on the gate, Carol is wiped out. She is on her feet pretty much all day. During the week, she takes reservations over the phone and preps the camper’s info packets for the coming weekend.

DSC_0947Meanwhile, the construction projects (two housekeeping storage buildings and a new shell for the well house) that Robbie and I are working on are getting closer to completion. Two things are extremely important when building structures – the exterior walls should be painted as quickly as possible to protect the exterior T-111 plywood panels and the roof should go on as soon as possible once the walls are up.

Well, the roof material was two weeks late getting to us so the roof did not go on until after we encounter a major storm. This resulted in finding about an inch of water covering the floor. That was not a good thing. Fortunately the water did not cause any major floor damage.

IMG_1783A couple of days after the storm, we received the roof material. So it goes in the construction business.

IMG_1784Meanwhile we began tearing down the walls on the well house and raised a new frame.

IMG_1781After much discussion about roofing the well house, moving the well house, covering or not covering the well house tanks, we finally got the exterior walls up. Now there are two structures waiting for paint. Where are the painters when you need them?

IMG_1821Meanwhile the first housekeeping storage building finally got its roof, which means we were able to get the ceiling and insulation in place.

IMG_1797And we finished the interior walls, plus added four large shelving units.

IMG_1817Did I mention we had rain while this was going on? Fortunate for our campers, the rain started late Monday of Memorial Day weekend. Campers where already set to depart so most got out before the big rain. Here is what the tent camping area next to the pool looked like by Tuesday after Memorial Day.

IMG_1811Even the group camping looked more like a lake. That’s Robbie’s truck in the photo.

IMG_1815We finally got the roof on the first building and have turned it over to housekeeping. The exterior is still not painted. Hopefully that will change before the exterior T-111 plywood is damaged.

IMG_1790Things are drying out, campers are coming in droves which means summer has officially started. Here are some photos of what this place looks like when it is full of campers.

DSCN0612 DSCN0615 DSCN0621Meanwhile, we have already planted the support posts for the second building and are ready to start on it next week. In about 4-5 weeks, our work here will be completed; we will then have a decision to make about where we will go next. Yogi Bear bids you farewell for now.

IMG_1763Thanks for stopping by; y’all come back now.

Working in Waller, TX

Waller, TX is a small community Northwest of Houston on Highway 290, about 30 minutes away from Brenham, Katy, and Tomball, Texas. Our campground, Lone Star Yogi, is a quick get-a-way location for many folks in the Houston area.

WallerWe arrived at Lone Star Yogi on March 1 after a short trip From Hidden Valley RV in Southwest San Antonio area. The first big event we encountered is Spring Break, which spanned three weekends and two weeks. The park is busy when it is full of people. It does not take long for the 125 RV site, 40 tent sites and 150 cabins to fill up. The park also has a small water park that is a major attraction for guests. As is usual for many RV parks, Thursday and Friday are busy check-in dates while Sunday is the mass exodus.

Carol works in the registration office during the week and is in the gate house on weekends checking in guests to the park. There are several ladies named Carol in the park so Carol has a new name. In this park, she is CJ. I work in maintenance, primarily focused on construction projects. I work with the Robbie who is the construction manager for Legacy RV Resorts.

So what have I been working on? Well, it is a long list so here goes.

Project #1 – Repair a weak floor in bedroom of one cabin. The floor was weakened by a leaking shower mixture valve that had been replaced.

01 Cabin FloorProject #2 – Mop Closet outside of the recreation center. Mops ‘out-of-sight’ makes for a cleaner look.

02 Mop ClosetProject #3 – Water Pump Enclosure. Water pumps adjacent to new tent camping area disturbed a camper. Enclosure is also insulated with 1 1/2 inch foam. After we completed this project, the tent camper thank us.

03 Noisey PumpProject #4 – A/C Repair. We replaced the outside A/C compressor as requested. New unit would not operate so we then did a little trouble shooting and found bad splices on the control cable. Repaired the splice and all is well keeping that cabin cool. We also had to keep this duck at bay since he did not like us being around.

04 ACProject #5 – Security Gate by General Store. The security gate keeps golf carts out of the solar panel farm which is located behind the general store.

05 Store GateProject #6 – Septic Tank Fence. In two areas, we built a short fence surrounding two septic tank areas. The fence will keep guests from driving golf carts near the tanks.

06 Septic FenceProject #7 – Yogi Theater Projector Platform. The platform for the projection room was not stable. We built a new platform and included a bench seat for the mature guests.

07 Projection Room PlatformProject #8 – Headboards. I built 80 headboards to be installed in cabins. Sometimes it is the little things that have a big impact.

08 HeadboardsProject #9 – Housekeeping Storage Building. This is one of two buildings we are building for Housekeeping. This will place cleaning supplies closer to the cabins. We should be done with one of the building by Friday. Then we can break ground on the other which has to be completed before Memorial Day Weekend.

10 HousekeepingProject #10 – Signs. I made frames for several signs that were placed around the property.

10 SignsProject #11 – Repair siding on a cabin. We replaced 32 feet of siding on this cabin. The siding had to be custom cut and was expensive. Thirty-two feet cost $144. OUCH.

11 Cabin Siding On one of my trips back to the maintenance shop, I encountered a flat tire. Fortunately Lone Star Yogi has an excellent staff of Golf Cart folks who came to my rescue.

12 Flat TireThat is the end of project for the past two months. All these projects does not mean I work and have no time for play. There will always be playtime in our world.

March is rodeo month in Houston. Our eldest daughter arranged for us to enjoy a day at the Houston Fat Stock Show and Rodeo. WOW has that event has really grown. I bet you did not know they used a John Deere Zamboni to groom the arena.14 RodeoMiniature golf with our eldest daughter and our youngest Grandson. They also enjoyed the Yogi’s water park before we grilled burgers for a late lunch.

13 GolfCelebrated Carol’s Birthday at Goodson’s Cafe in Tomball. Great atmosphere and decent food. We had to get a birthday photo with their cow.

15 CarolI have been working with Richard, another workamper, we met last summer at Mark Twain Landing in Monroe City, MO. Richard and his wife Debbie, who worked in registration with Carol, left about a week ago. We hosted a farewell cookout for Richard and Debbie. Robbie and his wife Della joined us. Richard is in the back, Debbie is on the right. So that now leaves Robbie and I to finish the construction projects before Memorial Day.

16 BBQAnd there is always time for a campfire.

17 CampfireThat just about does it for a recap of the last two months. We’ve been pretty busy working hard on getting this park ready for the summer crowd. In one more month, school will be out and the park will be in full summer time operations. Thanks for stopping by. Y’all come back now.

Adios San Antonio

Thank you Teri and Mark for making our stay at Hidden Valley RV enjoyable. Our workamping experience was a great one. You guys have done a fabulous job on rebuilding the park after the horrible flood last spring.

hidden-valley.jpgWe landed at Hidden Valley on Thursday Jan 30th after a short drive up from Corpus Christi. Teri showed us site #2 pictured above. Carol’s sister Donna met us as we pulled in. The two sisters were going to have a sewing marathon for a day or two. As soon as we got parked, they took off leaving me to nest on the site.

The sisters made it back on Saturday Feb 1, as expected to enjoy the Cowboy Breakfast, Hidden Valley was hosting. We had a grand time meeting new people and making new friends. Teri and Mark put on a feast that would fill any cowboy’s belly. Even the resident fur babies got into the action.

Hidden Valley Cowboy BreakfastAfter breakfast, I wondered through the park to catch a glimpse of the old and the new. The new sites are roomier and will have ample shade from the trees on the south side. Campers will enjoy that this summer.

HV RVFebruary 2nd was Super Bowl weekend. My niece Tammi invited us to come to their house. They were having a few friends over for a Super Bowl Party. We enjoyed our visit and meeting some of their friends. We did not get a photo of them so I borrowed one from Tammi’s Facebook page.

David-Tammi

February 10th, we met up with RVers Bob and Susan from Oregon. They have an interesting story of how they got into this lifestyle. You can read that on the blog Susan writes, Travel Bug. We had a delightful visit at Zio’s in San Antonio.

DSCN0599For Valentine’s weekend, Carol and her sister got back together for another sewing weekend. That gave me some more quiet time. I do enjoy that and I know Carol enjoys spending time with her sister. During that weekend our Calico cat, Patches, got mad at me. Apparently I went to bed on Thursday the 13th and forgot to check the water bowl. Cody drank it dry during the night and Patches got thirsty. When I woke up Friday morning, I could not find my glasses. After I took Cody and MeiLing out and got them fed, I went on a search for my glasses. I place them next to my side of the bed each night. This morning they were not there, not on the floor, not anywhere to be found. Since these were new glasses, I did not cherish the idea that I may have to spend another $250 for new glasses again. After I showered that morning, I saw something ‘shiny’ under a sewing accessory that Carol uses with her sewing machine. Eureka! I found my glasses. Apparently Patches moved them. Either that or one of the dogs did. I know I did not put my glasses there. Another mystery solved.

IMG_1640We have had a combination of beautiful spring weather mixed with cold from the Polar Vortex that has been producing extreme cold in the US. On those beautiful bright sunny spring like days, our neighbor John spends time flying his kites. He has quiet a collection of kites. His wife Carolyn says that it keeps him out of trouble. Here John is prepping one of his smaller kites. This one has a 20′ span across the base.

IMG_1642Carol’s sister Donna and B-I-L Tom stopped by for a visit. They parked their travel trailer next to us. While the sisters worked on a sewing project, Tom worked on getting some repairs done on their travel trailer. We did not get any photos of Tom working on their TT but did manage to snag a couple of photos of the sisters’ sewing project from Hidden Valley’s FB page.

Sister PursesOn Saturday 2/22, Carol and I drove into San Antonio to meet another dear friend and former Driscoll Children’s Hospital co-worker. After Rebecca left Corpus Christi, she moved to Austin, Tx and met Ron. Rebecca and I chatted on Facebook but just never could arrange a meet up. She suggested getting together before we left San Antonio so we set a date. She and Ron drove from Austin to meet us at the Lone Star Cafe on the San Antonio Riverwalk. We enjoyed sharing our RVing experiences with them and talking about old times and how times have changed.  Rebecca has recently retired from nursing and is enjoy this time with less stress.

DSCN0602On Friday the 28th, we had one more lunch date with another former Driscoll Children’s Hospital co-worker. Linda White was benefits manager there until she left Corpus Christi had moved to San Antonio. Again, we’ve chatted a few times on Face Book which eventually led to a phone call to set up this lunch time. Carol and I met Linda and Robert at Bill Miller’s BBQ on the northwest side of town. We had a great time catching up on things. Linda and Robert said they make regular trips to the Tomball area and would come for a visit.

IMG_1655As February comes to a close, several folks have asked what kind of work I had been doing. While Carol has been working with Teri in the office, I’ve been moving dirt. Part of this task is related to building up an area that washed out during the spring flood. The majority of the time was spent spreading dirt over areas in the field across from us that had large patches of exposed rocks. Mark wanted the field prepped for planting grass seeds. Just like a homeowner would do for their yard, spreading dirt means picking it up from one spot and spreading it in layers in other ares. The main difference is the size of the shovel. Here is the shovel I used.

IMG_1645We did not do much sight-seeing while in San Antonio, but we did notice a new building that was quiet large. I just had to find out more about this building. Maruchen, Inc. produces 3.6 billion packages of Ramen Noodles in two plants in Irving, CA and one in Richmond, VA. They are currently at capacity and selected San Antonio as the location for their 4th Ramen Noodle plant in the US. This 500,000 sq.ft building located near the intersection of I-35 and Loop 410 in Southwest San Antonio, is set to open later this year.

IMG_1653Saturday was a travel day for us. We woke up to a heavy fog so we were in no hurry to leave. Carol had already cleaned up the kitchen so fixing breakfast was out of the question. Instead, we decided to have breakfast Tacos at Benjamin’s Kitchen. This is not a fancy place. You don’t need a fancy place to be successful. Good food will draw a crowd. We arrived before the breakfast crowd and enjoyed our Tacos. By the time we left, every table was taken and people were beginning to wait for a seat. Thank you Benjamin’s Kitchen for the great breakfast Tacos.

Texas Is Expensive

Maybe I should have title this entry “R&R Mode Is Expensive”. I’m not sure which would be accurate. Since we started on this journey in January 2012, our coming back to Texas for a stay has been costly for us. We came back to Texas so we could get our annual physicals and of course visit family and friends.

Potters Creek - Canyon Lake

In October 2012, we spent a week at Potter’s Creek in San Antonio enjoying a little R&R while we were between workamping locations. During that week, we took a trip to Camping World in New Braunfels to buy a new shower faucet for the 5th wheel we had at that time. By the time we were done, we had negotiated a deal to trade our 5th wheel and truck for a motor home. (You can read about that by clicking here.) After moving into our new wheels, we then went to Corpus Christi for a few days. While in Corpus Christi, we stayed at Sea Breeze RV in Portland and bought a car. (That story is here.)

cropped-seabreezeportlandtx.jpgJust like October/November 2012, we are between workamping jobs, we stayed at Potters Creek before coming to Corpus Christi, and we are staying at Sea Breeze RV.  We passed our physicals with flying colors and are good to go for another year. We also got eye exams, new glasses and had our hearing aids cleaned and checked.We also traded the car we bought in 2012 for a more suitable vehicle that we can easily tow behind the motor home.

IMG_1623We had an opportunity to meet Phyllis and Len as they were headed to the Rio Grande Valley.I have been reading their blog The Easts Head West for some time. It is always good to meet folks along the way – especially those I follow by their blog.

DSCN0591We had a great visit and enjoyed the extended time visiting friends in the area. It is now time to say ‘So long Corpus Christi.’ as we head to our next stop on this journey.

Next Stop

Now that we are in the South, what’s next for us? That is the question I’ve been asked.

Today we leave Potters Creek for the 200 mile trip to Corpus Christi. We will be parked at Sea Breeze RV which is in Portland, just across the Nueces Bay from Corpus Christi. We have appointments for our annual physical, eye exams and audiology. We will have plenty of time to visit friends and catchup on the local stuff. After spending two years away from Corpus Christi, I hope to see it with fresh eyes. After three weeks in Corpus Christi, we end our R&R and get back to work.

Sea Breeze RVNext stop is Hidden Valley RV in Van Ormy, TX. Van Ormy is located in Southeast Bexar (pronounced – bear) county on I-35. We will be working with Teri and Mark, the owners of at Hidden Valley, in exchange for our site. Hidden Valley suffered a major blow in the May 2013 when the Medio Creek overran its banks and flooded the RV Park. They have since rebuilt the RV Park from the ground up. While the park has had its grand reopening, there is still lots of work to be done.

Hidden Valley RVMarch 1st, we head to our next stop, Lone Star Yogi, in Waller, TX. This little community is about 40 miles Northwest of downtown Houston and 35 miles Southeast of Brenham. We lived in Houston for a number of years before our 20 years in Corpus Christi and have family in the area. I will be working in maintenance and Carol in registration. Lone Star has just completed a major expansion. We understand this is one of the busiest parks in the Legacy Resorts family. We will be there through October 31st.

Lone Star YogiWe also have a commitment with American RV in Albuquerque, NM from November 2014 through April 2015. There we will be trained as assistant managers so we can continue our work with Legacy Resorts. We were originally talking with the manager at American RV for a possible summer work spot. During the conversation, the discussion shifted to our becoming assistant managers, thus the shift from summer to winter.

American RVWe look forward to getting back to work. We’ve enjoyed the down time so far and are looking forward to our time visiting with family and friends in Corpus Christi.

If you are in the Corpus Christi area feel free to find us at Sea Breeze in Portland. If you are traveling through Texas during the summer, we invite you to stop by at Lone Star Yogi in Waller, TX. Hope to see you soon.

Thanks for stopping by. Y’all come back now. I leave you with a photo of the sunrise at Potters Creek this morning. We are glad to be back in Texas for a bit.

Heading South

Yep, that’s right. We packed up and headed south. After a great week with our kids, who came for a Christmas visit, and two months workamping in Townsend, TN we left for warmer weather and new workamping gigs in Texas.

December 31, 2013

First stop was Nashville, TN for an overnight stop at Camp Walmart and a visit with my nephew. We are not the party goers, especially on New Years Eve. After a wonderful visit with my brother’s eldest son, we called it a night. In the morning, we paid for our site by refueling at Camp Walmart.

January 1, 2014

Happy New Year! Wishing a prosperous and joyful new year to our readers and friends. Our target destination for today is Memphis, TN. We crossed the Mississippi River to park at Tom Sawyer RV Park in West Memphis, AR. This allowed us a view of the Mississippi from our front window plus we were close to Memphis BBQ on Beale Street. Tom Sawyer is not a fancy place, and certainly has little ‘IT’ factor unless you like an RV park with very few amenities.

IMG_1589Memphis known for its BBQ and Blues. It is home of the world’s largest Pork BBQ competition and a large Blues festival. We decided to test the BBQ at Blues City Cafe across the street from B.B. Kings Blues Club. Blues City Cafe had better review for ribs than BB Kings place.

DSCN0587After a belly full of ribs, we headed back to Tom Sawyer’s. The weather was getting colder as an arctic hurricane was bearing down on us. By the time we got back to the RV, the temperature was significantly cooler. I took the fur babies for their evening stroll, disconnected our water hose and hunkered down for the night. After a light breakfast, we pulled up stakes and headed for our next stop – Hot Springs, AR.

January 2, 2014

We had an uneventful drive to Hot Springs, AR where we parked at Hot Springs KOA. This was our first KOA park. As expected, the park was just about empty. Temperature was a bit warmer due to the sun shining brightly. Our site was not level at all. Front left wheel was 4″ off the ground, right front wheel was 6″ off the ground when we leveled the RV. Good thing we had extra blocks to put under our jacks.  We were just about half-way through our journey to our destination in Corpus Christi.

January 3, 2014

Our next stop was in Marshall, TX. We could have stayed in any other town in the area so why Marshall? Well, I mistakenly took Marshal, TX for Huntington, VA, the location of Marshall University. The university suffered the loss of their football team and coaches in an airplane crash in 1970. In 2006, their story was released into movie, We Are Marshall. It was ironic that I was able to catch the movie on TV just the other day. In researching online about Marshall, TX, I discovered that George Foreman was born here in 1949 and Lady Bird Johnson graduated from Marshall High School in 1928.

IMG_1594It does not take much to make this Texan happy, especially since we have been out-of-state for a bit. We decided to enjoy a Texas tradition of Whataburger for dinner Friday night. What a treat. In the morning we paid for our overnight spot at Camp Walmart. Oh yes, we went back to Whataburger for breakfast Tacos before taking off.

IMG_1597

January 4-7, 2014

Next stop was R&R at my brother’s place in Burton, TX. Burton is a small town just a few miles northwest of Brenham, TX – home of Blue Bell Ice Cream. Our plan was to rest up for a bit and relax. By Saturday, I was pretty miserable dealing with what we call the Texas Crud. Texas Crud takes a few weeks to run its course. If it is severe, it can turn into viral bronchitis. Somehow on the way, I missed a turn at Henderson, TX. By the time I realized the missed turn, I began making routing changes on the fly. I recommend you do not do that. My error added about 35 more miles and almost an hour drive time to our route. When we finally arrived, the temperature was in the mid 60′s and we were both tired.

For the next three days, I needed rest. The weather was also turning bad on us. Remember that arctic hurricane we left behind in Memphis? Well, it caught up with us. We had forgotten how it felt to be in Texas when it the weather is wet and a north wind begins to howl. Sunday, the temperature began to fall. Monday the north wind began to blow and the air was full of moisture. Tuesday morning we were down to 19 degrees. East Texas winters are known for misting rain mixed with cold temperatures. There is no way to stay warm in that kind of weather.

Carol and her sister, Donna, decided they needed a sister project. They decided to make a new quilt. While I rested and slept, Carol found fabric and borrowed our sister in law’s dining room table to began cutting out the material. The quilt style is called a Sampler. That means each square is machine quilted in a different pattern. The pattern is often used in a block of the month group where each participant makes and shares quilt blocks. Once each block is completed, all the blocks are then pieced together. While I do not understand the details of this, I am sure our quilting readers will understand.

January 8-11, 2014

Next R&R stop is Potter’s Creek on Canyon Lake just north of San Antonio, TX. We stopped by Carl Wendler’s Ranch in Ledbetter, TX first. This is where we spent the winter of 2012. The ranch is doing fine. We enjoyed the short visit with Maurice.

IMG_1603Carol went on ahead of me to stop for gas and BBQ from City Meat Market in Giddings, TX. My last stop was Buc-ee’s for gas. ($2.98/gallon). If you are traveling through Texas and come up on a Buc-ee’s, it is worth a stop. We arrived at Potter’s Creek shortly after 3:30PM , got set up a took a short nap. Carol called her brother and we made plans for dinner Wednesday evening at Italian Garden. WOW, what a great place. Service and food were very good.

After sleeping late on Thursday I fixed breakfast around 11:00ish, then we took a trip to New Braunfels for a few groceries and fur baby food. By the time we got back from town, Carol was beginning to feel the drag of her bought with the Texas Crud. We had Baked Potatoes with the BBQ from City Meat Market

After two years of living on the road and living in less congested areas, I can tell you, I dislike congestion with a passion. Drivers are most inconsiderate and rude when they are in a hurry. Roads in New Braunfels are being expanded again. That is good news for road construction folks but bad news for travelers.

Friday, Carol took a day off and stayed in PJs until 3PM. She needed the rest. We had a little rain overnight but nothing serious. This afternoon the temp rose to 75. I am wearing shorts for the first time is several months.

We will be leaving Potter’s Creek on Sunday as we continue our journey south. Last stop of our R&R will be Corpus Christi. We will be parked at Sea Breeze RV in Portland until the end of January.

I leave you with our site photo at Potter’s Creek. Tomorrow I will give you an update on where we will be working next.

IMG_1606Thanks for stopping by. Y’all come back now.

A Christmas Carol – 2013

The Original Christmas Carol

We are all familiar with A Christmas Carol written by English author Charles Dickens and published in 1843. The story tells of sour and stingy Ebenezer Scrooge’s ideological, ethical, and emotional transformation resulting from supernatural visits from Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.

While we enjoy this seasonal classic, we must take a look at the Original Christmas Carol to see three gift’s God has for us.

Christmas Past

VOIDIn the beginning was God. Gen 1:2 says the earth was empty and without life. Over the next 6 days, God gave it life. God breathed His soul into His creation. Thus the earth was full of God’s character. This was Christmas Past.

Christmas Present

the-birth-of-christLuke 2:25-32
Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised,
 you may now dismiss your servant in peace.
 For my eyes have seen your salvation,
 which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
 a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
 and the glory of your people Israel.”

With the birth of Christ, God gave His Son, Jesus, so that whoever would believe, would have eternal life. When Simeon saw the Christ child and recognized Jesus is a special gift from God, he praised God.

During His three years of public ministry, Jesus showed the world the greatest gift possible; the gift of life. John 10:10. This is Christmas Present.

Christmas Yet To Come

New JerusalemThe Holy Spirit gave the Apostle John a look at Christmas Yet To Come

Revelation 21:1-5
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

A new heaven and a new earth – A New Jerusalem full of God’s character and nature. This is Christmas Yet To Come.

Let us thank God for breathing His life into this earth, giving us Jesus Christ so we can see His character and nature, and for giving us hope for an eternity in His presence.

Now you have a choice to make. The options are few yet easy. Many choose to believe while many choose to not believe. Do you believe God did what the Bible said He did?

If so, celebrate Christmas by praising God for His creation, His Son Jesus, and for the New Jerusalem yet to come.

If not, ask God to reveal the mystery of His precious gift to you. All you have to do is receive it.

Merry Christmas to all. Thanks for stopping by. Y’all come back now.
