Christmas Gift Ideas – Give Forgiveness!!

-Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us – who was raised to life for us! – is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture-
(Romans 8:31)

Hey Neighbor!

It’s Oldie but a Goodie Friday, and today is my (deceased) Brother’s B-day….December 16th.

Tony, my big-brother, has been gone now since February of 2015, but just a few months prior to his death, he reached out to me at Christmas time, during the wee hours of the morning.

Here is that ‘oldie’ Story of Forgiveness from December 2014!!


I’m so excited today, because NOTHING…can separate Us from the Love of God!!

I wasn’t planning on posting today.
I figured I would give you a break today, but God had another plan…

Here’s the Story…

It was 5:30 in the morning and somebody was texting me.

Now, I normally turn the sound off on my phone, but I guess I had forgotten. I was in a deep sleep and nearly fell back asleep, but the Holy Spirit knew it was an important message…and it was…It was my brother, from California…which meant it was 3:30am on the West coast.

God Was Working the Night Shift!!

We called him, Tony…that was his nickname…and I hadn’t spoken with him in years…I forgot just how many!! Lol

He called me Nookie!! That was my nickname…and I can’t believe I had forgotten that. It had been so long since I’ve heard it.

Nowadays, my identity is Tam…Wife…Momma…daughter….
but never Nookie, anymore!!

It was so nice to hear that again…it brought tears to my eyes and it brought back a long, lost, but comforting identity for me…Sister!!

Sure!! I’m Sister Tam with my Church Fam…and I love it!!…but this was my Blood!!

My brother and sister and I had become distant after our Father died…of course there was plenty of family drama that took place since Daddy’s death that further separated us…and so now we don’t talk to each other, anymore…and I’m sick of it!!

I’m over that mess!!…I’m Sooo over that!!
I love my Big Sister and I love my Big Brother!!

You see, I was the baby…and they both looked out for me. So If some boy was bullying me…I went and told my big brother…and Tony took care of it!!

If Tony was bullying me…I went and told my big Sister…and Treecy took care of Him!! Lol

Nobody messed with Nookie!!

God is So Awesome!!
He still knows My Name…even when I forgot It!!

…Even when We forget who We are and where We came from…God Still Knows!!

And He loves Us no matter how far away We’ve gone…and no matter what We’ve done wrong!!
He still Loves Us!!

…And He’s already forgiven Us…
He just wants Us to receive it!!

And if we’re already Forgiven…shouldn’t We be Forgiving??

How long can we let that same grudge keep us separated from the Ones We love??

Jesus forgave us and gave his life for us while we were still sinners…that means He died while Momma was out there tripping…and Brother was out there cheating…and Sister was out there stripping…and Cuz was out there robbing…and Uncle was out there drugging…and Auntie was out there ‘dranking’….and when
We were ALL, just Out There Bad!!

He Still loved Us…and He Still Forgave Us in the midst of our filthy, raggedy, wretched sins…while we were still wallowing in our mess…and loving it!!

He Gave up His Life for Us!!

If God has Forgiven Us…when we didn’t deserve it…then maybe we should forgive somebody else…when they don’t deserve it.

God did it for Christ’s sake…so I can do it too!!

I Forgive my Brother, Tony – For Christ’s sake!!

I Forgive my Sister, Treecy – For Christ’s sake!!

I pray that they both can Forgive Me – For Christ’s sake!!

You can’t give a better gift this Christmas than to Give Somebody Your Forgiveness!!

…And The Best Present You and I can get in our Christmas Stocking is Forgiveness wrapped up in the Love of Christ!!

-But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us. Therefore, since we are now justified (acquitted, made righteous, and brought into right relationship with God) by Christ’s blood, how much more [certain is it that] we shall be saved by Him from the indignation and wrath of God-
(Romans 5:9)

God Loves You Today, and So Do I!!

Trivia Thursday – Name That Relative!!

And while He was still speaking, behold, there came a crowd, and the man called Judas, one of the Twelve [apostles], was going before [leading] them. He drew near to Jesus to kiss Him, But Jesus said to him, Judas! Would you betray and deliver up the Son of Man with a kiss? (Luke 22:47)

Hey Neighbor! 

Many of us are familiar with the Lead Scripture above, where Judas salutes Jesus with the ‘kiss of betrayal.’ 

We know that Jesus submitted to the ‘authority’ of the chief priests and their henchmen, permitting them to take him away, because their time (their dark hour) had finally come, wherein they were destined and determined to quickly kill our Lord and Savior!!

Judas was Jesus’ betrayer, and a treacherous brother he was; but he wasn’t the first to salute his brethren with such a kiss as this, when all the while, in his wicked heart, he thirsted for his brother’s blood!!

We know that Cain thirsted for Able’s blood; but did Cain salute his brother with such a kiss??

Well today we are searching for another blood thirsty ‘betrayer’ who we have identified once before, in a previous trivia question. 

This ‘betrayer’ was doubly treacherous, and eventually his bloody deeds did fall upon his hoary head.

He was found guilty, and was executed for killing 2 army captains, during times of peace! 

Now one of these victims/captains was his very own cousin, who our ‘betrayer’ also saluted with a kiss, just before he slaughtered him with his sword!!


Who was this Betrayer??

And also, Can You Name this ‘betrayed’ Cousin/Captain??

And Finally, Can You Name The Mothers of These 2 Cousins??

Trivia Tuesday – Name That ‘Stone-Thrower!!’

Hey Neighbor!

Are you familiar with the saying, ‘People who live in glass houses should not throw stones?’

Well, the actual meaning of this proverb is, “One should not cause harm to other people, if he is himself vulnerable”

Well today, we are looking for a certain Bible character who was literally found guilty of cursing and throwing stones at a king, during a time when the king was found most vulnerable.

And because this ‘stone-thrower’ did not immediately suffer the consequences of his treachery upon that king, he continued to live on quite comfortably in his ‘glass house’ as if he, himself, was not also vulnerable to be harmed.

Now of course our stone-thrower did not literally live in a glass house, because at this time, the Israelites lived in tents.

But the irony here, is such that our ‘stone-thrower’ did finally meet his fate; but not while he sat or slept behind the security of his glass walls and doors!!

In fact, this stone thrower was actually put to death because he departed from the confines of his home, leaving him in direct violation of the succeeding king’s commands.

You see, this treasonous ‘stone-thrower’ had finally been judged and convicted of his crimes, and was placed under house arrest; but just three years later, he too found himself in a situation of vulnerability.

There was trouble in his home, and two of his rebellious servants had run away; and thus our cursing, stone-thrower hurriedly departed from his house, in order to retrieve his servants from Gath, and get them back onto his estate.

When the king was made aware of the stone-throwers violation of the ‘stay-at-home’ order, he was immediately put to death.

Those very same stones that he had thrown, intending to harm a very vulnerable king, had finally ricocheted, and had made contact upon this ‘stone-throwers’ very own vulnerable head!!

Can You Name This Stone-Thrower??

‘Faith-Full’ Man’s Monday Riddle: Who Was He??

Hey Neighbor! 

As we prepare to close-out 2022 and enter into the blessed doors of 2023, I would like to set aside a special day- Monday- to highlight a ‘faith-full’ male character from the Bible. 

During much of 2022, we have highlighted so many ‘faith-full’ females from the Bible, and we will continue to do so from ‘time to time’ on Sundays in 2023; but we must also make room for God’s ‘Faith-Full’ Men to shine.

And shine they will…on Monday’s in this blessed New Year to come!!

I have a Sample for You Today: He is Our first CareBibleStudy ‘Faith-Full’ Man for this Monday, December 12, 2022!!

Can You Solve My Riddle?? 


A Nazarite, he was, wearing the ephod, til he was recused and rejected

With horn in hand, he anointed the captain, whom God had selected

Reluctantly, he’d be required to proclaim this same man’s demise; And Yes, he lamented 

God’s withdrawal from the man; and his appointment repented 

This seer envisioned hope for Israel through the handsome man with much height

But our Sovereign God is equipped with A Spiritual ‘In-sight.’

The Lord said, “Get the heifer, Take up your oil and your horn.”

Enough of this mourning, right now!! Be no longer forlorn 

To see not by his own sight, was now this seer’s assignment and aim

Faith-fully, he poured the oil on his neighbor; The one whom God named
