Oh, God. I thank you today for the power to turn situations around. Wonâ€™t you journey with meâ€¦to the fourth chapter of Daniel? I love this chapter for two reasons. It displays the true heart of man and the unconditional love of God. It tells of King Nebuchadnezzar and his journey as he came into the full knowledge of God. He had heard a lot about the God of Daniel, he knew of his power and his wisdom yet he refused to bow down and serve him. Oh mighty King Neb came to know God the hard way.
Christmas is definitely in the air â€“ especially the airways. Christmas movies are on every channel, interrupted by countless commercials showing the perfect Christmas gift. There are movies about a young boy wanting a husband for his mother, Santa promising a young girl a Christmas boyfriend, and a young soldier receiving a Christmas card from a girl he did not know. The titles go on and on â€“ entertaining, perhaps, but lacking in substance. Even the movies that show right winning over wrong make no mention of the real reason for the season.

It started out of Darlene Coxâ€™s small Commerce Street business eight years ago.
Back then, Coxâ€™s Secret Santa program for local kids was a small operation that involved snacks and candy for the children of West Point at Christmas.
Over the years it has evolved into something beyond the nutritionistâ€™s wildest dreams.
â€śLast year was our best year ever,â€ť Cox said on Wednesday morning. â€śWe gave away 2,500 gifts to needy children in West Point.â€ť
