If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

  1. One of the things that makes Christmas so fun is how folks enjoy celebrating in different ways. Example: I'm a white light kinda gal. But I think it'd get boring driving around neighborhoods seeing only white lights.

    Lots of fun traditions!

  2. Fun to read and see how you like to celebrate. :)
