Many people within the congregation helped to make this presentation possible. But there were others outside of the Church that helped make it a Success too. I would like to thank Albert Perkins in Keavy and the horse connection in London for loaning us animals to help create More of an atmosphere for the Manger scene the Shepherd scene and the Wise men scene. I would like to thank the a times Tribune for their news coverage of this event. It was greatly appreciated. The Volkswagen Beetle is making a comeback. Supposedly the new Model has More Power and a Sleeker design. Tinny How people think they have to keep on fixing things that Arentt broke. The new version of the car will be available in the United states this March. Twenty years have passed since the last Volkswagen Beetle rolled off the production line. When i was growing up those Little cars seemed to be everywhere and Why not a Volkswagen was notorious for few repairs and seeming to run on air. They never seemed to age or change. One looked just like the other and the other and kept going and going. They must have been some relation to the Energizer Bunny. Chances of the Volkswagen reaching a level of stardom was referred to As a improbable a but it happened when Walt Disney made a Herbie the love Star status have surprised anyone. The cars do have a distinct personality and in be always thought they did look like a person almost. Thanks to Walt Disney it was easy to believe that this car really could talk. The cars also attached themselves to their owner. Once you had one Many times you literally had to make the Choice to get rid of it because the thing kept on running Long past what it should have. Volkswagen Are perfect examples of the popular saying a they done to make cars like they used to a and its True. Its not just Volkswagen that Arentt built the same none of them Are. While in a being nostalgic my first car was a 1974 Oldsmobile Delta 88. It had Power windows Power brakes an awesome stereo the car was top of the line for its Day. I lovingly refer to it now As the a a gunboat. You a think it was made of steel. Transfer trucks were about the Only thing on the Road that were bigger actually it was an excellent car for a beginner. When people see something that big coming Down the Road at them they tend to get out of the Way. With me behind the wheel that was probably in their Best interest. A big piece of my history went the Day that car rolled off. It did no to die though. I sold it recovering most of my Money. There was a time you could do that with a car. Later on i bought another old car that was every bit As big actually it was the same Model i have a thing about Oldsmobile. It was during financially embarrassing Gail Freeman times that i picked up this old car for $200. I drove it for four years and sold it for $250. Try doing that with a newer Model in fact you re Lucky if you can drive a newer Model four years without it falling apart Back to the Bug though. Who can think of one without thinking of Flowers and beads the classic �?~60�?Ts car. My brother liked Volkswagen. Yes he owned one two three. He went through five of them. They were All typically the same most were the same color. Standard shift Little monsters that would have went up against any at you la find on the Market today. When you had a Volkswagen there was no need for a four wheel drive. If that car take you in a Here to Tell you you did no to need to go. My Mother has lived at the top of a Hill for 30 years now. When those cars were around there was no question whether anyone could get off and on that Hill or not. Although Volkswagen did no to differ that much some where nicer than others. The convertible Volkswagen the Kharman Ghia was the prettiest one by far. The woman one of my Brothers was destined to marry came Here from California in a red Kharman Ghia. I was 13 years old and thought Williamsburg had just been reborn of course my husband says i would be remiss if i did no to mention the whole family the vow Wagon the Beetle the super Beetle the Kharman Ghia and last but absolutely not least the vow microbus. In a not sure we could have had the �?~60s if we Hadnot had the All original hippie Dippie microbus. Lets pull out our tie dyed shirts put the Flowers Back in our hair and drag out the Bell Bottoms. Actually Bell Bottoms Are Back in style now. I guess history does repeat its self. On the up Side in a a Little too old to try and cram 15 people inside of a Volkswagen again and personally i think that a a Good thing.

Pledge to slow Down a bit in 1998 just maybe you have discovered 1998 to be a Rush already and you set a goal to not fall into this ditch so easily and quickly. What Are you to do in the Bible James 4 8 it reads a draw near to god and he will draw near to Nash this we must constantly repeat As we live the Day and live for him. Most of us find ourselves in a hurry and we like it that Way because if we Are in a hurry then we have an excuse. A a in a in a we can say a i wish i could a a sorry i just done to have the time today a a in la see what i can do All these excuses help to Lead us to a Lack of spiritual growth.

If in your life you Are not free to be thoughtful lovingly and if you cannot act in Freedom you Are a Good example of someone in the chains of Busy doings which amount to nothing for the cause of Christ. The scripture says a draw near a and we must do this with purpose in mind. Quiet minds can think and thinking about him is what we should be doing. Establishing a a less Rush status in our lives we can hear god in the stillness. By refusing to Rush and hurry in 1998, you will not become so perplexed or intimidated by the Rush and hurry of everyone else and if you take time to a draw near to him he will give you All you need to know just what to do and when to do it. Our world likes a thunderstorm of activities and we just love to be at an All time fast Pace but if we Are going to push it this year lets make sure of one thing. We Are not in front of god. Remember we Are suppose to be followers of him. Until then Tim Mills is the pastor of the horse Creek Road Baptist Church and his Columbi appears regularly in the times Tribune
