Life Pointe Church Sunday Morning Tossed Salad

– This morning we met corporately for the final time of the year and decade.
Youth Pastor Mark S. filled in admirably for Lead Pastor Travis.
– Mark continued our “LoveWorn” message series and campaign.
– It was all about ‘Thread Bare Love’.
– It’s Love worn by us for others – our brothers, sisters, and neighbours.
– It’s comfortable, warm, and used – but still very full of Love for all.
– It’s appropriate everywhere – at home, school, work, stores, and in traffic.
– You don’t need to preach to teach what God is all about.
– The Bible says Love comes from God, for God is Love.
– Many people of this world don’t follow God because of His followers.
– Many of His followers don’t Love like God Loves.
– God instructs us to Love all of His creations – even those who don’t Love us.
– Love never wears out – it’s forever.

1 John 4:7-21 (NLT, 2ND Ed.) – Loving One Another
7  Dear friends, let us continue to Love one another, for Love comes from God. Anyone who Loves is a child of God and knows God.
8  But anyone who does not Love does not know God, for God is Love.
9  God showed how much He Loved us by sending His one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal Life through Him.
10  This is real Love — not that we Loved God, but that He Loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
11  Dear friends, since God Loved us that much, we surely ought to Love each other.
12  No one has ever seen God. But if we Love each other, God lives in us, and His Love is brought to full expression in us.
13  And God has given us His Spirit as proof that we live in Him and He in us.
14  Furthermore, we have seen with our own eyes and now testify that the Father sent His Son to be the Savior of the world.
15  All who confess that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God.
16  We know how much God Loves us, and we have put our trust in His Love. God is Love, and all who live in Love live in God, and God lives in them.
17  And as we live in God, our Love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face Him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.
18  Such Love has no fear, because perfect Love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced His perfect Love.
19  We Love each other because He Loved us first.
20  If someone says, “I Love God,” but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is a liar; for if we don’t Love people we can see, how can we Love God, whom we cannot see ?
21  And He has given us this command: Those who Love God must also Love their Christian brothers and sisters.

History Holidays Music Radio

Saturday Night Retro

It’s time for the final ‘Saturday Night Retro’ of 2009, and it’s the classic Christmas tune heard on the radio during every Christmas season of the entire 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. After four decades it’s clearly become the most-played Christmas song on the radio of the entire rock era. It’s legendary Puerto Rican singer, songwriter, and guitarrist José Montserrate Feliciano García – or simply José Feliciano. Here’s a special LIVE performance of “Feliz Navidad”:

Here are my walking thoughts in 15 words or less:

– This morning I walked around my neighbourhood in the chill.
– After an 81°F Christmas Day afternoon 61°F felt so nice and comfy.
– Wind chills were actually well into the 50s during my walk.
– I felt those 50s as I walked northbound into the cold winds.
– I walked for 44 minutes – about 2.4 miles.
– All of our dumpsters were jammed and crammed with Christmas gift boxes.
– Dear City Of Homestead – Please empty our dumpsters as soon as possible.
– We’ve got garbage-eatin’ ducks ’round these parts !
– We’ve got a lot of flying bugs where I live.
– They appreciate all of the thick foilage and big lakes around.
– They also appreciated my face as I walked right through them.
– During my walk in the dawn of this new day it was peaceful and quiet.
– I talked directly to God, and I thanked Him for all of His great creations.
– I prayed for all of my friends and neighbours – believers and non-believers.
– I prayed that God would bless us all like only He can.
– I thanked God for giving me a second chance at Life, for I am reborn !
– For 30 years I said and did what the world told me to say and do.
– I did what was cool – even if it was bad for my mind and for my health.
– Now I’m cleansing my body of all that is bad.
– It’s a physical walk to heal and strengthen my body on this walk with God.
– My Dad can no longer walk or even stand up.
– He’s confined to a skinny bed in a nursing home for the rest of his life.
– He has Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis – also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
– I dedicate these physical walks to my Dad for all that I’ve learned from him.
– I thank my Father God for all that He’s blessed me with since He created me.

The Major’s Friday Night Disco Party

When you think of Christmas you may think of a cold wind and a fresh snow, but in most parts of the world that rarely or never happens. It never happens in places like the Caribbean, Central America, South America, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand because it’s tropical or summertime there. Here in the U.S. you’re likely to have a cold wind but no fresh snow. Some parts of the country experienced a White Christmas this year. In fact the Dallas-Fort Worth Texas area saw its first White Christmas in well over a century with at least 3 inches of fresh new snow on the ground.

If a cold wind and a fresh snow is your ideal scene then may you enjoy your “Winter Wonderland” on this Christmas Day.
