Answered Prayer: That you prayer warriors, my sister Mary had the clot buster drug for three days. Mary’s tricustas valve was had a clot and caused the valve to stop working. Surgery was not an option. The valve is now working again. GOD IS AWESOME!     #prayerworkskswpkavx

Prayer:  Pray for Military Chaplains, who serve military men and women around the World. They are divinely appointed to deliver hope and spiritual strength to all! Prayer for continued strength in their important work.  #prayerworkskswpkavx

Should Your Church Have to Hand Over Your SS#? When you put money into the offering plate at church, the IRS wants to collect something too. For donations of at least $250, the tax agency wants to give church officials the option of handing over their donors’ Social Security numbers. Currently churches and charities are required to send an acknowledgement letter to their donors for their tax records. (More at CBN)
**Citizens can comment on the regulation here through December 16.

THE TEXAS TENORS are coming back – by popular demand – to the Temple Theater Monday, December 21, 7:30 pm, with a special holiday presentation ‘Deep in the Heart of Christmas.’ With virtually every live performance a sell-out, and with their Emmy Award winning PBS special, it’s easy to see why The Texas Tenors are quickly becoming America’s favorite tenors. Since their whirlwind debut five years ago on America’s Got Talent, The Tenors have accumulated a long list of awards, accolades and excited fans. Deep in the Heart of Christmas strikes a holiday chord with songs such as “What Child Is This”, “White Christmas” and “Mary Did You Know?” along with the warm, funny and interactive antics.
