How the Grinch Stole Christmas captures the essence of this lovely verse from Ezekiel 36:26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove your stony heart from your body and replace it with a living one.
We all love to sit as a family and put on a Christmas Movie. I love to find messages of God's love in the everyday including Christmas movies. As we prepare for Christmas I invite you to join me on Thursdays at 6 pm to watch a Christmas movie and see if we can discover messages of hope, love, joy and peace.
On Dec. 3rd. join me to look for How the Grinch Stole Christmas captures the essence of this lovely verse from Ezekiel 36:26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove your stony heart from your body and replace it with a living one.
Dec. 10 movie is Frosty the Snow Man.
