Shine Ministry
"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
-Matthew 5:14-16

Christmas Gifts
By Dena M. Hall

Ask people their favorite part of the holiday
Most would say gifts received or given away
It's fun to make a list and shop around
Until that perfect gift can be found
But Christmas Gifts are more than things put under a tree
They must also be part of your ministry
You should give people the boost they are in need of
Showing them there are still those who know how to love
Give your smile to a stranger you see
Showing them that they are worthy
Give someone the attention they are looking for
Validate them so they're lonely no more
Give someone your shoulder to cry on
Letting them know they have someone to rely on
And time is a most precious gift to share
Just being there let's someone know you care
It's fun to get caught up in the Christmas season
But we should never forget the real reason
Because the greatest gift that could be given away
Was when God gave us Jesus, born on that day
