<3 y’all but no one is getting prz from me this year. I am done w/ Christmas przt for the year.

Oooooh! I know WJWD (What Jesus Would Do)! No pzts!
Nov 25, 8:34 AM
Will y’all join me in not buying Christmas przt’s this year? Let’s just give each other love & hugs & home-cooked meals & backrubs & songs!
Nov 25, 8:42 AM
@Jane, thx for pointing out that wisemen brought Baby Jesus przt’s for his bday. But still that is not what his life&teachings were about! Come 2 church w/ me on Sunday?
Nov 25, 8:44 AM
YAAAAYYYYYY! J-J out of surgery! My SGM is all good! Thx 4 prayers!
Nov 25, 9:07 AM
@Mallory, OK, I guess it IS Xtreme to say 0 przt’s.
Nov 25, 9:11 AM
SPLIT: How ‘bout this? Angie Cox just told me that the Sat. B4 Christmas is actually the biggest shopping day of the season, bigger than BF. Why don’t we all protest by not buying anything on that day? Call it “Shop Free Saturday”! Spend the day w/family & at church, NOT at the mall!
Nov 25, 9:15 AM
@Ashley, U can plan ahead & shop early. OR give each other love & hugs & home-cooked meals & backrubs & songs!
Nov 25, 9:22 AM
SPLIT: What is wrong with givin each other love & hugs & home-cooked meals & backrubs & songs, Jane? Aren’t those better than some cold black&silver electronic made by strangers in China who don’t even believe in Jesus? U know I’m right!
Nov 25, 9:43 AM
Gotta go! I can C J-J now! <3 y’all & thx for prayers & remember SFS! Shop Free Saturday! Spread the word! XOXOXOXOXO PBTL!
