She is thirteen years old and thoughtfully stands at a fork in the road of life. To the left is an attractive, wide path. “Popular” would be an appropriate one-word description, since much of the world and all her peers are happily traveling on it. They seem to enjoy this new adventure. To the right is a more narrow trail. She sees no one on it at the particular moment, but the worn pathway gives evidence that it has been used throughout the centuries and that occasionally, another pilgrim journeys through it.
She glances both ways. Which way should she go? Which way is best? Everyone seems to be enjoying the beginning of the path on the left, but what consequences will it reap in the end? Is it always that exciting, that easy? Just because everyone is taking the broad trail, does that mean she should? Which way should she go?

It’s true. Whether or not you like it, or whether or not you are even aware of it, YOU are being watched. Which means, of course, that you are setting an example. The question is, what kind of example are you setting? As Christians, we need to be sure that we are being a good testimony to the world. That way, our unsaved neighbors, relatives, or acquaintances won’t look at us and say, “They say that they’re Christians, but look at what they do!” This is probably one of the easier and more obvious areas in which we are to be an example.

A NOTE TO OLDER SISTERS
One of the sweetest memories I have is the story of one of my brother’s salvation. As an older sister, each of my siblings’ testimonies of coming to Jesus is a treasure, but his has always held a special place in my heart. This is because I prayed for his salvation with a fervor unlike any other.

As a family, we have some traditions that we incorporate into our Christmas celebration of Christ’s birth. I will mention a few that we do and then explain one in detail.

I cannot think of anything more damaging to the inward and outward beauty of a girl, than bitterness. It is a seed, that once planted, begins to choke out the grace and sweetness of a young maiden and is terribly hard to get rid of. The plant grows rapidly, and sends out new shoots that produce more seeds and can easily spread to others. Let me tell you about some ways this seed is planted, how it spreads, and what you must do to get rid of it.

The past two years for my family have stretched us to lengths I didn’t think possible. Or normal. But because of this stretching, I have seen seasons of distant relationships and thick bonding moments. All good things, as I’m always reminded in Romans 8:28, but we are still a remarkably busy family. And our individual selves are even busier.
Well, my sisters are busy; I’m just along for the ride, right? ‘Cause, as usual, I just have school.

Our Heavenly Father gives us many things to be grateful for. Just take a moment and make a mental list of those things you can thank God for.
Your list probably included some of the following: family, friends, a warm house, food, salvation, etc. These things are easy to be thankful for, but did your list include: siblings that are difficult to work with? A little brother or sister who has a tendency to get into your things? Disappointment? Loss? Being sick? Those who persecute you and revile you?

It’s that time of the year again when we give thanks to our gracious Lord and Savior for all that He has done in our lives! Need some scrumptious recipes? Need a craft idea? What about a new tradition to start each Thanksgiving? Maybe these are some help to you! :)
