My Christmas message to you!

Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of sharing the thoughts below with the ladies in Valdosta Georgia. What a beautiful evening we shared together celebrating the coming of our Savior into this world. Thank you ladies for your love and fellowship and especially for your listening ears. I was so blessed by you!
Allow me to share this Christmas thought with you:
"I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people" the angel in Luke 2 exclaimed! And, my friend, listen to the news the angel brings: "For there is born unto you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." Though these are the most familiar words in the Christmas story - seen on billboards and Christmas cards - I would like to ask you this? Have you received them as YOUR words? Have you received Jesus as your Savior? Not just to save you from the eternal consequences of your sins, but to save you to live your life to the fullest extent in the day to day. In Luke 4, Jesus says that He has come to heal the brokenhearted, proclaim freedom to the captives, recover the sight of the blind, and set at liberty those who are oppressed." Would that be you? If so, why not open up your heart and receive your Savior today! Appropriate the good tidings of great joy for yourself for unto YOU this day a Savior is born!
Merry Christmas to you, my friend!
love, margaret

Happy New Year Margaret,
How are you doing? I'm kind of able to cheat with that question, just read a few of your blogs and get the skinny. Sounds like God is using you to bless many!

He has been doing great things in me and continues to draw me into His bosom so that I may Behold Him! He has opened doors and created opportunities that only He could orchastrate (looks mispelled) with the book and Bible Study.
Please keep me and this assignment in your prayers.
