Let It Go!

Today's message is about getting rid of all the things taht keep us from being better, growing in our faith and serving God.
Funny, how some days we just keep "garbage" in our hearts, mind and soul. Since this is the time to reflect on the past and set our goals for the future, toaday is the day to let it go and start a new.
Clear your heart, clean out the garbage from your mind and let God have control in your life and soul.
I hope you'll print out today's story, put it some where you can read it everyday to remind you to...
Let it Go!

Today's Story

The Geese and the snowstorm was requested yesterday by a reader. This story first appeared on the list during Christmas 2001. A favorite amoung many, the story never seems to generate as much email as the story from last week, My First Christmas in Heaven. The "heaven" story always generates many emails from readers. Especially those who have lost a loved one in the past 12 months.
My friend Paul, a pilot in Columbia, MO. and a childhood friend I grew up with, recently lost his infant son. I know this holiday season has been very difficult for him and his wife Carmen. I hope you'll join me in praying for Paul and Carmen over the next couple of weeks as they struggle with the loss of their son.

Having Fun During Christmas

Thanks to everyone who has posted a reply to my daily messages. I am so excited about our new sponsorship of Don's radio program. I'll ask his permission to post the show for everyone around the world in mp3 format so you can give his show a listen. I am afraid that this might not be possible because of ownership issues with the music and the program.
Perhaps I can get Don to make some CD's of the program we could send you for a small donation. I'll check with Russell at Got Life (he does something like this every month) and let you know what we can do.
Christmas is only 11 days away. I need to finish my shopping for everyone on my list.
Looking forward to reading more from you.

Today, I am announcing that inspirationlist.com will be sponsoring the radio program Afterglow, featuring Don Johnson. The first show we will sponsor, will premiere on the Salem radio network (over 1200 radio stations) in January. I'll post the air date of the program as soon as Don gives it to me.
The program will feature 7 - 8 of my favorite songs along with a story from the inspiration list.

Christmas Time!

That time is here, the time of year that gets everyone so busy. Running around, shopping, parties. Seems so easy to forget the simple things in all of our bustle. Remember to stop and say hello, spend time reading your Bible and call someone who might be lonely. During the holidays, so many people who are alone really need to hear your "smile" and your voice. Won't you take a minute to stop by and see them?
If they are a long way from you, pick up the phone and call. I know they'll love to hear from you.
Have a blessed day and Holiday season.

The Group grows

After about 24 hours since the last invite was sent out, the inspiration daily group is around 4000 members. We sent out almost 40,ooo invites (50 at a time) so this only represents about 10%. I know that about 20% of the old Inspiration List subscribers are in South Africa and don't have web access. So I had thought that we would have a much higher number of group members by now. Guess I need to sit back and relax, let God take care of the growth and be thankful for having a place to move the list to.
I've been thinking about using the instant message portion of the Yahoo group area. Perhaps we could have a monthly message session with me online answering questions and talking about the messages. Leave your feedback and let me know what you think.
God Bless and merry Christmas,

In The Beginning

After much work, the new Yahoo group is up and running. You can now subscribe, change your email address, unsubscribe your email without the need for our help. (you could say I'll be getting a lot more sleep now)
The Yahoo group will also allow us to have monthly chats with members from all over the world. More on that next month.
I want to Thank Katherine Coder for all her help with this over the past 7 months. I couldn't have done it without you!
I wish you the best in New York!
