The end of November is upon us . . .



Have you digested your turkey yet?  Yes?  Well, good, because it's already Monday again!  Time to move on to a new week ... let's make this last week of November a good one, as we begin preparing for this year's Advent and Christmas season.


For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
    and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 1:6)
