This post title been the series topic atSpotswood Baptist Church, Fredericksburg, Virginia this December. It is our third December to be here and enjoy this amazing Pastor. He just knows how to get the message across in a Biblical and relevant way!

We actually missed the first sermon because we were taking care of our youngest grandson who was sick (and we each caught that nasty stomach virus that has been around the country). We had our oldest grandson with us for the second sermon, he’s pictured here on his way there. Having him snuggled up against me, prevented me from taking notes or even downloading the sermon outline. Otherwise, I would have written that sermon us as well!

Merry Christmas!

While we count our blessings every morning, praying together as we acknowledge and know so many others struggling with health, financial or a personal crisis during this holiday season. While we are living our dream, we are aware of the struggles of others. We’ve been there, suffered some tragic events in our nearly 40 years together. We’re sure that has helped sensitize us to the fact that it’s not that merry of a season for some. So with that said, we’d like to share one of the best sermon’s we’ve heard, on this topic. It helped remind us to count our blessings, to live each day to the fullest, and to love our loved ones even more. So sit back and enjoy hearing why you want to have a Merry Christmas, no matter what your circumstances!

From Spotswood Baptist Church, Fredericksburg, Virginia, November 30, 2014. Guest Pastor Dr. Chuck Kelley, Jr., “Living With the Consequences” (Lamentations 3:15-23)


Merry Christmas, Bill &  Debbie Lees

Our hope and our belief as we’ve struggled with the realities of life, we believe in the God of All Comfort:

2 Corinthians 1:3-6 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.  For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; and if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer.”
