Recently, I became a curious creature of habit as I researched an old classmate of mine. Over 20 years ago, I was intrigued by this guy since he seemed to have everything going for him like his charm and talent. As I scanned his MySpace information, I became deeply saddened. I hardly could believe this was the same spirited person I thought I knew. At first, he seemed to have everything, a marriage, child and his career. However, as I glossed over his choice of religion, I noticed it wasn’t Christianity. It was Buddhism. I researched more about the religion and could see the appeal, but I could also see disappointment. As we know, if we are not careful, our mind and body can play tricks on us. Still today, some Christians believe Jesus is not the only way to eternity. Yes! It is true! Let me repeat. Some Christians believe Jesus is not the only way to eternity. I have heard people say, “People who do good works will see God.” “God is not so narrow-minded to turn good people away.” For the hundredth time, people in this world still cannot grasp the knowledge that Jesus is our Lord. He’s God on earth! Little do they know that they are playing death.

It seems many of the holidays are just around the corner. One of the most traditional American holidays is Thanksgiving. There’s nothing like succulent turkey, piping hot rolls, tasty casseroles and grandma’s apple pie. The only problem is, well, grandma is gone to be with the Lord. It seems since her death, I have been noticing more and more people are losing their battle for life. Of course we all want to be with the Lord, but not until it is our time. As we all know there is a season for everything.
Unfortunately, many family members grow up and move far away, so they only get to see each other every so often. If possible, this year I would encourage you to visit relatives for time is very precious. If you can’t meet them during the holidays, find time to call or write. I have found the web cam to be an instant help. Well, at least I can see the person I am talking to. For those of you who can see your relatives, take time to really get to see each other. I remember as a child we would go to grandmas to visit. After we devoured the food, the guys would go and watch the football game and the ladies would chat. I understand your favorite team might be playing, but do find some time to talk since you don’t get to see each other anyway.
