The Greatest Love Story Ever Told - Guest Post

     The wonderful Allison from The Indwelling Word Ministries agreed to do a guest post for us. I hope you'll be blessed as we consider the Christ behind Christmas.

     It’s so easy to get caught up in the stockings, wrapping paper, and silver bells. It’s so easy, I have found, to forget that at Christmastime we celebrate not merely a Baby in a manger--but what He represents.  Christmas for us should be a celebration of the greatest love story ever told.

The End of Fall

     Living along the East Coast means that come October, the trees explode into a dashing array of orange, yellow, and red, all in multiple hues.





Isn't this tiny leaf so cute?!

The last to fall.  

The view out my window. Isn't it gorgeous? 

What's your favorite fall color? What does autumn look like in your area?

Book of the Month: Son of Hamas


     In this autobiography, Mosab Hassan Yousef details his life as the eldest child of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, one of the founding members of the terrorist group, Hamas. Prepare to be gripped as you read about Mosab's precarious childhood in a war-torn area, his teen years spent harassing Israeli soldiers and avoiding their bullets, his capture and imprisonment when only 18, and his eventual collaboration with the very Israelis he passionately hated. Even more incredible is Mosab's journey to knowing and accepting Jesus Christ, despite the resulting consequences.
