     As we enter this Christmas season, we extend our warmest greetings to each of you, and thank you for visiting Jackie Lynn's World.   This is the time of year, we reflect on the past year, recognize those who have made a difference in our lives, and express gratefulness for that which we have been given.
    This past year has brought many changes for us.  We are so grateful we have been entrusted with the care of our four-legged family.  There is never a dull moment with them!  We are also grateful for the friends and family who have stuck by us during the most difficult times.
    However, what we are most thankful for can be found in a song written in the '70s by  Tim Sheppard.  It is not a Christmas carol although it probably should be as it sums up the reason for this holiday and the greatest gift given to mankind.

Little baby in a manger
Son of God above,
Born to die for all my sin
Yes, I believe in love.

    God put all his love, mercy and grace in a baby born many years ago named Jesus. Yes, God did so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will not die but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

Life has triumphed; Death is finished.
I cannot conceive
Why One so lovely, One so kind
Would give new life to me.

What can this poor wounded soul
Give to a mighty King?
Can He who holds the world in space
Have need of anything?

  There is nothing we can do to earn the right to have fellowship with God (Rom 3:20).  While we may try, we will always miss the standard (Rom. 3:23).   However, through Jesus' life, He showed us how to live, and in His death and resurrection, He gave us the wonderful free gift of eternal life and fellowship with Him. He will never let you down. Even though others may desert you, He won't.   All we need do is believe Him and accept His gift by praying something like this.

"God, I know that I am a sinner and my words, thoughts and actions have seperated me from fellowship with you.  But I believe that Jesus died and rose from the dead for me.  I trust Him as my Savior.  Thank you for saving me and giving me eternal life in You."

Yet, my soul shall never cease
To offer gifts of praise.
I'll kneel in spirit at His feet
A sinner saved by grace.

Born to die to rise again
To crush the power of Satan's sin
I lift my voice; I'll shout and sing
Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna to the King!

  We hope you will accept God's gift to you of eternal life and fellowship with Him, and you will share with others.  If you have any questions, please write us at jackielynnsworld@yahoo.com.
