Keeping God the Main Thing!

I started listening to this podcast this morning as I decorate for Christmas. I must admit, when I began the task I most certainly was not relishing in the joy of the season. HOWEVER I have been most richly blessed by listening to EVERY episode thus far in one day. My heart has been touched in such a way that I am now excited and eager to ensure that my family and friends KNOW the real reason for this season and to be a blessing to others. Thank you Focus on the Family!! You continue to grow me as a Christian daily. May you be blessed beyond measure so you can continue to bless others and grow other’s faith!!
