Every week we get to celebrate that -- But what better time than the first day of Advent to remember anew that for the baby in the manager - there was still the cross looming in the distance.
FORGIVENESS: being set right - having all our sins and mistakes and bad decisions and down right selfish, self-serving acts wiped clean -- totally forgotten by God so that when HE looks at us HE sees
