Per Fidem Intrepidus means "Fearless Through Faith". My courage isn't my own, it comes from the Holy Spirit, it's my faith in God and my personal savior Christ Jesus that calms my fears and allows me to move forward in this fallen world. Personally I'm afraid of a lot of stuff, but having the faith that Jesus adopted me as his little, sin filled, brother keeps me going.

"I walk through this sinful world as a 
pilgrim in a foreign country" - CH Spurgeon
My wife and I spent a lot of money on many things this year, from doctor bills to dog grooming our budget was stressed. So we decided to not get anything for each other this Christmas, to just be thankful for what we have. This was a great idea because our children came up with Christmas gifts that surpass all others. Our daughter-in-law took to wearing a patriotic t-shirt that said "Red White & Due"and just recently our daughter took to dressing up her only child in a t-shirt that emblazoned with "Just Promoted To Big Sister"

God gifted us with two grandsons, Oliver is due in March, and Chase is due in July and we couldn't be happier. On one hand we are incredibly delighted even though next years Christmas budget for grandchildren just doubled. On the other hand, we have six children. if each had come up with a Christmas present like this my wife and I may have considered a quick move in the middle of the night to an undisclosed location. 😅 Although Christmas time is a time of joy, quiet reflection, and gratitude for a promise kept, it's also the time of rebellion against God for many. Sad to say it, but to many the thought of a prayer of thanks to our creator for gifting us with the savior He promised is extremely unpalatable so much so that the prayers of the faithful must be disrupted in order to make themselves feel better. Don't believe me? just look at this weeks wrap-up of nuts and fruitcakes:

Clueless in the Nordic: A school in Norway has been forced to deny censoring references to ‘Santa’ and ‘elves’ from Christmas songs in a bizarre attempt to avoid offending atheists. (All those "Narveegin" jokes we tell in North Dakota sound half as ridiculous as this)

He's also missed the fact that the winter solstice is over so he needs to take down his silly sign.

  1. "Holy Mary Mother of God" link goes the same place as "Prince of Peace."

    Islam is bent on conquering Europe and then the USA, and the world.

    A "racist" for condemning "The Shack" - Now I've heard everything.

    Atheists are running amok, aren't they!?!? It's not that they don't believe in God -- They believe and are afraid and don't like being reminded that He will hold them accountable.
