My Goals





My goal for this Christmas....

Is to not be like the inn keeper. I am going to have room in my heart for the gift. I am going to keep Christ in Christmas. I will and I am removing all the clutter from my life that would keep me from doing this. Christmas is in my heart!!!

I want to be like the Shepherd who came to worship him.

I want to be like the wise men. Searching and seeking him.

I want to be like the star leading others to him.
