Christmas; Sympathy; Government Studies


Hello Everyone,

I am enjoying this bright season and hope you are too.

Please enjoy your work at home while you listen to this episode of Homemaker Radio

Thank you, Lydia, for the sound encouragement concerning sympathy and how to be truly sympathetic. Your comments concerning the celebration of Christmas and how some Christians differ on their convictions regarding its recognition were appreciated as well. I find it is the one time of the year that people are more open and receptive to hearing the gospel message. I always like to include gospel tracts in my cards and gifts to others this time of year. It is a great opportunity and privilege we have to share it . And, you’re right about putting something merry and bright in our homes to share with our children and guests. I have electric candles in every window and it surely helps to dispel the darkness and greet the evening hours joyfully.
Thank you for another broadcast from the lovely manse.😊
Blessings, Holly

I listened to the first part of this video while I folded two giant loads of laundry and wrapped a few gifts, and the second part while I put through an order for some health supplements. I found it very interesting that you mentioned those Christians who don't celebrate Christmas. I recently made some friends who are very devout Christians but who feel it is best not to celebrate Christmas. I had never known until just this year that some people feel this way. I respect their convictions, but I agree with you that it's important to do *something* to cheer up the home at this dark and cold time of year, even if it isn't Christmas. The darkness outside just gets depressing.

By the way, I am writing this on Christmas Day. We had a lovely meal of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. Merry Christmas to you and Mrs. S and God bless you both in the New Year, Lydia.

Dear Mrs. Sherman,
I so enjoyed this video as I receive a blessing from being home schooled by a veteran home schooler! While you were with me I washed and prepped grapes and strawberries , wiped out the refrigerator, and put a pan of brownies in the oven. I used a mix. I’m not a good baker so I stick to very simple things but I would love to learn how to make rolls. Your cheerful voice keeps me going during these cold spring days. God bless you and Mr. S and your family. With love Mrs. Lauren Griffin
