Our Community Christmas Parade

I'm so proud of our little community. Tonight was our annual Christmas parade, and it rocked!!

We are a community that actually CELEBRATES CHRISTMAS!!!! There were THREE different nativity scenes in the parade from 3 different churches; there were several floats singing different Christmas songs celebrating the birth of Jesus... and there was one float from another church where my friend, Lilly (along with others from her worship team), sang "Mighty to Save".... (you guys were the best, Lilly)!! All the banners on the floats and cars said "Merry Christmas", not 'Happy Holidays'! PEOPLE shouted "Merry Christmas" to each other!!

It's just so wonderful to live in a place where people aren't afraid to stand up for what they believe!! I love my Lord, and I'm so blessed to live in a place where I'm free to share my passion.

Sometimes, I'm not sure how much longer I'll be FREE to do that, but I'll always feel the same about Him!! That will NEVER change!!

    It is a blessing!

  5. what a great parade Joann! so thankful too that people remembered what Christmas was about and let that show in their floats and displays!!!


  6. I am happy for you and your community being able to share in Christmas celebrations. Sometimes the desires of the many needs to win out ..!

  7. I believe each and every faith should mention their particular holiday with pride. Too many worry about being politically correct.

    I don't!

    Merry Christmas
