There Will Be Grace

Today I face a mountain oh so high

And I do not know what’s waiting on the other side

But I know enough to know - he’ll see me through again

I’m glad to know, it’s in the Savior’s hand

There will be grace, grace to make it through this trial

There will be strength, strength to walk another mile

There will be hope when I’ve done all I can

I’m glad to know it’s in the Savior’s hand

Those hands have seen me through my darkest days

They have dried my tears and help to guide me on my way

So I know he’ll safely see me through the fire again

I’m glad to know it’s in the Savior’s hands


Those hands that hold the universe will hold me now

And the hands that hold the stormy sea will hold my storm somehow


There will be grace, grace to make it through this trial

There will be strength, strength to walk another mile

There will be hope when I’ve done all I can

I’m glad to know it’s in the Savior’s hand

In loving memory of Shirley Mae Buckley Corriveau Walker, who went home to Jesus on Wednesday, December 16, 2009.

We love you Momma, and will see you again soon in Heaven.

The Reason

Last night we resumed our Monday night ritual of having dinner with family.
I had a turkey in the oven, and I was getting things ready to take over to finish the meal.
My mother- in- law dropped a Christmas tree off for us this year(Ted does not want to spend money on a tree, and I tend to agree with him). She helped the boys get it into the tree stand, and then she and Justin went to her house.
Jamie stayed here with me to start decorating it. It has become a little family ritual for us to have the Trans Siberian Orchestra play in the background while we decorate the tree. As they started playing Joy to the World I got so choked up, and wanted to cry. Jesus is the Joy and Reason for this worldly season.

Today, I was playing a little online game that the Lord has used to greatly bless me and others that He leads to my little patch of virtual reality.
I hired someone in the game to come to my little place and work...she came and saw the cross I had in the center of my spot and started crying. We shared a time of worship and fellowship together. It truly was a blessing, and the reason for this CHRISTmas season.

If you do NOT know that Jesus is the whole reason we celebrate this time of year, please please ask me or Ted about it right now!! We will be glad to share Jesus with you.

‘Twas the month before Christmas*

*When all through our land,*

*Not a Christian was praying*

*Nor taking a stand.*

*See the PC Police had taken away,*

*The reason for Christmas - no one could say.*

*The children were told by their schools not to sing,*

*About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.*

*It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say*

December 25th is just a ' Holiday’

*Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks, and credit*

*Pushing folks down to the floor, just to get it!*

*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*

*Something was changing, something quite odd!

*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*

*In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.*

*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*

At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.*

*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears*

*You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.*

*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty*

*Are words that were used to intimidate me.*

*Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen*

*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!*

*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*

*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter*

*And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith*

Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*

*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded*

*The reason for the season, stopped before it started.*

*So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'*

*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*

*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*

*Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!*

Please, all Christians join together and wish everyone you meet during the holidays a

Christ is The Reason" for the Christ-mas Season!
