A Memorable Occasion

My sister had a memorable occasion last December 23 when we celebrated our wedding anniversary. It was an experience to behold. It’s a beach wedding and a beautiful one. God honored HIS children when they call upon HIM. God is a good God and He inhabits the praises of His people.

God is great and greatly to be praised. Indeed, a celebration is not complete without the blessing of GOD and the help of the people behind. We all enjoyed and were blessed!

The Season of Giving

This season of giving is something we celebrate this special celebration. Thank God for this celebration. We celebrate because of Him. His coming on earth is the reason of this season. Now we celebrate not only to give but to bless those who are in need. Those who suffered will be given opportunity to be blessed.

Today, we will also bless our co workers, we will give gifts and enjoy the greatness of our God. We will give something to someone which is the usual activity during this season. Thank you Lord for Jesus coming on earth. The reason of this season.

‘Tis the Season

Wishing you all a blessed Christmas and a joyful new year. “Tis the season of loving, forgiving, releasing the hurts and leaving behind the heartaches of the 2016. What a joyous year for those who learned to forgive. God has forgiven us through Jesus Christ and we need to do the same to anyone who hurt us. We’re glad that God forgave us and brought us to realization that we need a Saviour of mankind. The one who can save us from our sins.

Merry Christmas

This season i something that is so memorable because God is always showing His love to mankind and continually giving us everything we need. Thank you for carrying u through.
