864 STRENGTH + CONDITIONING – Gunny’s Blog / Thursday 12.24.2020 / Naughty or Nice

864 Strength + Conditioning – Constantly Varied. NO Routines. NO Ruts. Don’t be Boring!

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
-Luke 2:11-14

“Who can add to Christmas? The perfect motive is that God so loved the world. The perfect gift is that He gave His only Son. The only requirement is to believe in Him. The reward of faith is that you shall have everlasting life.”
-Corrie Ten Boom

Fun Christmas Fact: “Jingle Bells” was originally a Thanksgiving song
Turns out, we were originally dashing through the snow for an entirely different holiday. James Lord Pierpont wrote a song called “One Horse Open Sleigh” for his church’s Thanksgiving concert. Then in 1857, the song was re-published under the title it still holds today, and it eventually became one of the most popular Christmas songs.
