    Series: (All)
    Most of us lead busy lives and spend our time running rapidly from one event to the next and one stage of life to the next. We are uncomfortable with the in between times.  As a result, we become anxious and irritated.  Sometimes we take matters into our own hands rather than waiting on God.  That also results if further worry and frustration.  What if we learned patience and the blessing of living fully in the in between times?

    A CHRISTMAS CAROL: Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus
    Christmas is a time of anticipation and expectation.  The Christmas carol, Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus, is a cherished carol about the longing of God's people since the Fall of man for the coming of a Redeemer (Messiah, Christ).  The birth of Jesus brought light and hope into the world and fulfilled that age-old longing.  But our longing is not complete.  There is something more that God's people should be living in eager expectation of.

    HOPE GROWS HERE: God-Honoring Excellence
    We are encourage by the teaching Jesus and the Apostles to work diligently and with excellence in everything we do.  Not just for good people, important people or persons of power, but also for those who may be harsh and unkind--for those who do not appreciate us.  The reason is that it is really not people that we are working for, but Christ Himself.  There could be not greater incentive than this to offer our very best.
