Happy Birthday Jesus

2013-The Year That Was   It is only by grace that 2013 has proven itself fruitful.  Riding on the wings of pure grace, we breezed through the 12 eventful months without even realizing that another year is about to end.  What do we have to show for it, you ask.

Truly, it was a night of great rejoicing.  "Let us come before him   with thanksgiving      and extol Him with music  and song." (Psalm 95:2)  " He put a new song   in my mouth,      a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see an
