Thursday Thoughts by YoTrip for December 22, 2011-CHRISTMAS Is His Birthday Not Yours! (Vol.12, Iss.3)


Happy Christmas Folks! Here is another timeless post to share again with the masses

Did you celebrate this Christmas 2013 in a special way? Or did you do little or nothing? Was this holiday difficult for you because a loved one is no longer living to share in making memories? Were you serving this country in a foreign country on land or sea? Did you have a traditional meal of turkey/ham and all the trimmings or did you eat outside of the box (Steak, seafood, Italian or Chinese take-out)?

In all of these wonderings and such did you recall it is His birthday and not yours to celebrate. It is Jesus’ who we pause to recognize not the chubby man in the red suit. I hope you took a moment to share and give love to others in the spirit of our greatest gift Jesus Christ.

YoTrip, 2013

CHRISTMAS is the largest holiday celebrated by people all over the world. Too often everyone gets all wrapped up in the presents that are presented and paying little attention to the greatest gift given. Always keep Christ in Christmas.” 12/21/11 ~~YoTrip

The birth of Jesus Christ is the reason for the season of Christmas, yet everyone acts as if it is their birthday. Newsflash folks stop ripping, running and rushing around for others and take a moment to put Christ back into Christmas.

December 25th will come and many people will be so consumed and absorbed with trees, decorations, that jolly joker Santa Claus, and cooking that they neglect and overlook the Saviour, the Christ.

The greatest present Jesus Christ, became the best gift Christmas that has been sidelined on his own birthday.

Beyond children who get sparkle in their eyes at the thought of toys and treats, adults show strive to give presents but keep Christ as the focus. Children should be taught that it is Christ’s birthday and he must be recognized.

During Christmas as you celebrate with family and friends, pause for the cause and of Christ Jesus and remember it is His birthday not yours. Merry  Christmas to you and yours!

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for December 13, 2011-The 13th Day Before Christmas (Vol.8 Iss.1)

The 13th Day Before Christmas

The 13th Day Before Christmas  and all throughout the land

Many people are out shopping with  plastic in hand

I can run around like the people over spending and overextending  too

The 13th day before Christmas and the retailers are hoping for big sales

Too many people are caught up in the madness on hoping not to fail

The 13th day before Christmas and some are out with long list to fulfill

Looking aimlessly for the perfect gift at a steal

The 13th day before Christmas and you have to say that the year has flown by

The frustration of the season will make some people cry

The 13th day before Christmas and some are looking for a gift to give

Price it is not object, in the coming months how will they live

The 13th day before Christmas and people have put the recession on hold

Come January or February they will be standing in the cold

The 13th day before Christmas and for some all is not well

The joy of the holiday season is not something all will tell

The 13th day before Christmas and some are lost in the rush of it all

Going from here and there on the verge of a fall

The 13th day before Christmas and has anyone stop to take a pause

This is not a celebration of green pointed trees and a man name Clause

The 13th day before Christmas and it is all for the risen Savior  we do celebrate

It is in preparation of the Lord Jesus’ birthday  that we should anticipate

The 13th day before Christmas  we need to shout and rejoice

To honor the King of Kings each person has to make a choice

The 13th day before Christmas and you still can make Christ Jesus the center

On the 13th day before Christmas what oh what shall you render

It is about the Lord Jesus not the sender.

The 13th day before Christmas and now and forever He rules supreme

Lift up the Saviour and let  your praises unfold in the dream.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for December 8,2011-Make This The Season of Giving Back to People (Vol.12,Iss.2)


English: Danboard holding a Christmas gift.

Make This The Season of Giving Back to People

Make This The Season of Giving Back to People

I mean really make the effort to share with those who have less

When you give from the heart you do not know just you can bless

There are so many people who are in need

They really will benefit from your good deed

In the spirit of sharing and caring for others is our calling card

Decide to act now, it really is not that hard

Believe in the power of paying it forward with small gestures of giving

The pay back to you is  to increase  someone’s living

Tis the season of giving back to those who need it the most

Be genuine in your gift-giving no need to brag or boast

Think of the happiness and joy you will bring when you open your hand  and your heart

The humility will direct your path and give you a place to start

So make this the season of giving back to people and spreading a message of love

Given from  you and sent from the Father above.

This is your season this is your time! Christmas Merry

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for December 1, 2011-World AIDS Day (Vol.12, Iss.1)


World AIDS Day 2011

Just the facts…

Some 34 million people are now living with HIV and AIDS;

68 percent of HIV and AIDS-affected persons are in sub-Saharan Africa.

Of those 34 million people, 2.5 million are children. Another 16.6 million children are currently orphaned by AIDS.

Fifty percent of the number of people living with HIV globally are women.

In 2010, 1.8 million people died of AIDS-related causes. That’s 4,931 per day, 205 per hour, 3 every minute. One life is lost to AIDS every 20 seconds.

Since the beginning of the AIDS pandemic, 30 million lives have been lost to the illness.

Every day, 1,068 children are infected with HIV.

*All statistics presented in this post are taken from the 2011 UNAIDS World AIDS Day report (pdf).

AIDS is not a condition it is a movement that has made its way into every segment of the mankind and every place and space on the planet. Do your part to help find a cure to stop the countless deaths. Get tested, know your status and encourage others to be tested. Be informed and then go out and share your  knowledge about AIDS.

Stay in the fight

Today I salute to incredible and courageous women who have been champions for the cause of AIDS and HIV awareness Rae Lewis Thornton (a 27 year thriver) and Hydeia Broadbent (over 20 year survivor).  Both of these ladies speak boldly and apologetically about their struggles and trials with HIV.  To find out more on these ladies story go to http://www.HydeiaBroadbent.com and http://www.raelewisthornton.com/
