We have not had snow on Christmas for quite a few years, and it has not snowed ON Christmas day for even more years than that. Today, the temperature was in the mid twenties, and it snowed and snowed so gently. What a beautiful day to go with the beautiful celebration of Jesus’ birth.

All of us at the McDougalls’ Home wish you the Very Merriest Christmas. Embrace the free gift God has given us as we remember the time when God left His throne, stepped into time, and entered this world as a baby boy. The Creator became like one of His created, so He could live the life we couldn’t, and suffer and die the death we deserved, all because He loved us so much.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16,17 (NIV)

Tonight, we all took a trip over to J.J.’s kindergarten school and watched his class perform. They were all darlings and did a great job. They sang five songs and took a whole ten minutes for the entire performance. We can only guess how many hours their teachers practiced with the children to get that whole ten minutes of a program. We appreciate them, and their patience when teaching our little wiggle worms. Click a picture to see larger views.

My brother Tom sent me this YouTube clip. Our society increasingly throws away those that are not like the rest. The outcasts of society. This YouTube clip about Nick Vujicic, is a perfect example of how God can take the small and weak in society, and transform them into the likeness of His Son, Jesus, and share His love with the world.
Visit Nick’s web site at http://www.lifewithoutlimbs.org and learn more of those that God really loves!
Christmas starts in the McDougalls’ Home the day after Thanksgiving. We love the Christmas season, and celebrate it to the full. What an exciting time of the year as we remember how Jesus humbled himself and came to this earth as a baby. We packaged up all of the Thanksgiving decorations and unloaded our store house of Christmas stuff.
On Saturday, we went out and hunted down our Christmas tree. There wasn’t much snow in the hills. It will seem more like Christmas when we get some. Here are some pictures of us getting our tree and putting it up. The kids are getting old enough to take over some of the decorating tasks, and are excited about getting it all up. They are decking out their rooms too.
It is Christmas time!

Christian Students everywhere use their First Amendment rights as they gather around the schools’ flag poles before school starts, on Wednesday, September 24. This is an annual event where students express their love and dependence on Jesus, and pray for teachers, fellow students, and administrators in a peaceful, non-invasive way.
Be bold and attend the “See You At The Pole” event at your school. Visit the official “See You At The Pole” web site for more information about the event, and information about your religious liberties in proclaiming your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. And, we will “See You At The Pole”.

Our family to a road trip yesterday (Saturday) to Great Falls to attend the annul “DownPour Festival” held there every year. From their website, “DownPour Festival is a home-grown free-admission music festival held in Great Falls, Montana. This was our first time attending, and we had a great time. It is nice to be able to go and be thoroughly entertained, while keeping all the focus on Jesus. It was a wholesome clean fun event for the whole family. If you live in the area, I encourage you to check it out next year.
My interest was mostly in “Rush of Fools”. Their CD “Rush of Fools” is packed with great worshipful music. Unfortunately, because of technical problems, their show was an hour late and thus shorteded, to keep everything on schedule. They were fantastic though. Check our their web site HERE. Also, if you pre-order now, you can get their up and coming new release, “Wonder of the World” Cd for $10. You can’t beat that.
I am not too familiar with many of Jeremy Camp’s songs, but his concert was fantastic. His testimony was awesome, and the whole thing was filled with God. God’s presence throught out the whole evening was very “thick”. We definately came away, not just entertained, but fed. When Jeremy sang “Oh No, You Never Let Go” by Matt Redmond, J.J., our four year old, went nuts, as this is his favorite song. J.J. has a play guitar and he plays and sings “Oh No, You Never Let Go” until he is exhausted. HERE is a video clip of J.J. playing and singing that one.

It is sad that so many well meaning organizations, like NASA, are waisting so much time and money on such nonsense. I am an Amateur Radio enthusiast, and I am sad to report that a certain segment of the Ham community, also waist their time, money, and energy on this nonsense. This article is from Ken Ham on the “Answers In Genesis” web site.
Yes—it is true. If you’re an American, your tax dollars are being used by a government agency to teach a course to students on how to talk to aliens! This is serious stuff. We’ve never seen aliens, never had any messages from them, never heard from them. They have not visited earth, and we don’t know how to reach them. But we are using tax dollars for this blind-faith idea!
However, if tax dollars were used to teach students on how to talk with God, who stepped into history in the person of Jesus Christ so we could see Him on earth, who gave us a whole book (the Bible) to reveal all we need to know about the universe, who did visit earth as a man, who tells us how to reach Him through prayer—well that would not be allowed! That would be called religion—and you know, the “separation of church” and stuff!
It’s okay to have faith in aliens—just don’t have faith in an infinite God who has communicated to us through His Son and through His written Word! The article on this begins:

There is so much talk going on about aliens, one wonders if this is all meant to prepare people for some great delusion!
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
