Wouldn’t it have been wonderful if, after you trusted Christ as your Savior, you had simply been caught up to heaven in a fiery chariot, leaving this sinful, suffering world and all its trials and temptations behind? I know I have wished that. More than once. How easy the Christian life would be if we only had to live it out in that perfect place called heaven.

Rep. John Kline from Minnesota leads the charge.

For years the Pentagon were somewhat confused on how to treat homeschoolers who had diplomas issued by their parents.  Minnesota is one of the states that allow parents to issue high school diplomas for their homeschool graduates. As homeschooling became more prevalent and accepted in our culture, the military seem to have missed out on the reality that homeschool graduates are usually far more qualified.

1.  Make Christmas cleaning and decorating a family project. Play some upbeat Christmas music and let the creative juices flow.

2.  Set up an art station with colored pencils, markers, construction paper, and let your children make handmade Christmas cards for grandparents and family members.

3.  Go caroling at a local nursing home. If your child plays an instrument that is easily carried (guitar, flute, violin), have them bring it along. This is a wonderful way to minister to the elderly and they enjoy it so much.

Today I write from the ambulance garage as I wait for the pager to go off.

It's unnerving. The others seem relaxed, but there is an ever-present underlying sense of anticipation and tension. The alert tones sound.  Everyone moves in practiced rhythm to the rig and we go flying down the road with lights flashing, siren blaring. I don’t know what we will actually find on scene until we arrive. And even then, medicine can only go so far. At some point, our human efforts fail and prayer is the only resource left.
