To some, it may mean giving and receiving gifts; to others, it means spending time with loved ones whom they rarely see. Whatever the reason that we enjoy this festive season, it is really a blessed and holy holiday because we are celebrating the birth of our Savior. Keeping this season holy, and focusing on our Lord will help draw us closer to Jesus, and to appreciate how much He loves us. Throughout the course of the year, our gifts may be a nice way to let people know that we love and appreciate them. Keeping the Spirit of Christ in Christmas is our birthday gift to Jesus and it lets Him know that we love, need, and appreciate Him. ...Behold, a virgin shaft conceive, and bear a son, and shaft call his name Immanuel.

Things are buzzin' in the WANTADS "... Think About These Things" by Rev. Wilfred C. Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE "l believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the the living! Wait for the Lord', be strong, and let your courage; yea wait for the Lord!" Psalm 27:13-14 A favorite Family Circus cartoon tells a story which is all A small child is crying. She cannot stop. Mother orders, go upstairs, young lady, and don't come down until there's on that face!" The child marches up to her bedroom, time later by mother.

The world is sad enough Without your woes. No path is wholly rough; Look for the places that are smooth and clear, And speak of those, to rest the weary ear Of Earth, so hurt by one continuous strain Of human discontent and grief and pain. Talk faith. The world is better off without Your uttered ignorance and morbid doubt. If you have faith in God, or man, or self, Say so, If not, push back upon the shelf Of silence all your thoughts, till faith shall come; No one will grieve because your lips are dumb. Talk health. The dreary, never-changing tale Of moral maladies is worn and stale. You cannot charm, or interest, or please By harping on that minor chord, disease. Say you are well, or all is well with you, And God shall hear your words and make them true. Prairie Five menu I Reservations may be made by calling the Senior Center.
