Merry Christmas

On December 25th, Christians celebrate the birth of Christ. Some believe Jesus was born on a different day, but they gather to remember his arrival on earth on December 25th.
Jesus came into the world to die for mine and all man’s sins and preached a Gospel of love. He was tortured and put to death, but he rose from the dead.

And His spirit lives today in the hearts and souls of Christians from the moment we accept Him. From then on, He is with us always from the darkest valley to the brightest hilltop.

“And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ, the Lord.” (Luke 2: 8 – 11).


Christ is born!

Welcome, Jodi. Tell us a little about yourself.
Well, let me see.  I’m a native North Carolinian and SO proud of that!  Until I married my Army husband and we moved and moved and moved, I never realized how important home really is.  I returned to teaching last year after an eight-year break.  I love to cook and to read (and, oddly enough, to read cookbooks).  My favorite place in the whole world is Frisco, NC, and if we ever somehow magically get rich, I’m so moving there and planting myself on an ocean-front deck.  I laugh too loud and I probably don’t cry enough, and it’s pretty much a guarantee that I’m going to talk way too much. 

Lots of writers also love to read. How about you? Were you an avid reader as a child? What did you read?
The joke in my family is that I read everything.  When I was about six, my grandmother found me reading the dictionary because there was nothing else readily available.  I can reme…
