Merry, Merry Christmas!
I pray you are well, staying safe and being encouraged by the true Christmas story….the Magi, traveling from, probably Babylon to Bethlehem, led by the King’s star that told them where to look. While December 25th is more than likely not the day of Jesus’ birth, it is probably the day the wise men brought their gifts to the toddler Jesus! One of the reasons why we give gifts this time of year. If you’re looking for something good to watch with all this downtime we’ve been having, check out the Star of Bethlehem on YouTube. Really inspiring!
Along with songwriting, as a Royal Mail postie, my downtime has been less and less these days, but….there’s big news! Roddy and I are planning ~
God willing, we’ll broadcast live on Connie MacLeod Music YouTube
Friday, December 25, 2020 – 5:30 PM

Something you may not know about Connie…
…When I was 16, I flat lined…, really, I died, which certainly could explain a few things, but…
…that’s when something wonderful happened…I met Jesus!
His voice was so tender, saying, “Connie, go back, it’s not time yet!”
Every day is a gift!
So, I try to honor the God who gave it to me, by sharing His immense Love for us. Jesus, really, truly loves you!!!
Maybe that’s why you’ve arrived here at this moment! Listen…
At Celtic Connections ~ Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
Not one of us escapes the grief when death claims our loved ones, yet death is something most of us don’t want to talk about. As someone who’s seen the other side, I can tell you, if you know Jesus…it’s something glorious to look forward too.
There really is a better place after the trials of this life, but as the Bible says, “Only few find the way.”
We can believe in a lot of things…follow people because we like what they say and how they say it, but when it comes down to where we’ll spend eternity,
what matters most is who you believe in!
His name is Jesus.
He said He was God. (I Am the Truth, the Life, Living Water)
He proved He was God. (Raised the dead, Walked on water, Calmed the sea)
The world hated Him so much,
they carried out God’s plan of Salvation by crucifying
the only Savior who loved us enough to die in our place.
But the story doesn’t end there…
Three days later, just as He said, Jesus appeared alive to the disciples and crowds of people, who spoke with Him, ate with Him and marveled at the man they had seen die on a cross. He defeated death and paid the price for our sins, so, if we accept His gift of redemption, leaving this life behind is like shedding a cumbersome overcoat…stepping into eternity clothed in Christ’s righteousness, and loved perfectly beyond our greatest expectations.
Please don’t miss this opportunity to receive the greatest gift ever…
I pray you’ll…”Run to Him, Just the way you are…
He loves you, surrender to His love…for that’s God’s plan!”
