PRINCIPLE – the source or origin of
anything; a general truth, a truth so
broad and sweeping that many other
truths can be considered offshoots of it

PRAYERI exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers,
intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and
for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life
in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight
of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto
the knowledge of the truth. I Tim 2:1-4

ENCOUNTER And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. Luk 19:13

UNDERSTANDING - And of the children of Issachar, which were men
that had understanding of the time, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads
of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.
I Chron 12:32

We had an official email from the big brass stating in no uncertain terms about leaving all religious references out of any decorations. So I put up a little pink tree with candy canes around it. I hung the Twelve Days of Christmas pictures of Anne Gedes Babies from the ceiling and had angels blowing trumpets around and on the tree and other candy under it to draw people. Then I placed a couple kids books on my desk about Christ's birth and Hanukkah.

People come in a lot anyway and others came in because of the pink tree. It really is cute. So I got to talk to some people about candy cane symbolism and the twelve days having a Christian meaning, but really it was sad. One person just kept glancing at the books while we were working at my desk, but he said nothing. And neither did I, I'm sorry to say. I just couldn't think of anything. Possibly God telling me to keep quiet, or more likely, just me not responding. I'm wondering how long before they say I can't wear my nail cross.
