Annie's "So you want to make a Christmas Home Page too" Page
Let me invite you to visit with me
at my house.
Just walk past the fence .......................
Everyone's home is a little bit different. But everyone tries to be
This year I decorated the outside for the holidays too.
Please come in the front door. It's cold out there.
You can warm up by the fireplace.
Now lets sit down
and discuss what you want your new HOME to look like.
You can decorate it any way you wish.
Be creative. You are only limited by your own imagination.
Have you decided what your home page will look like yet?
Make sure you take the time to write
down all your thoughts.
OK! Now lets get started. Shall we?
To make a Christmas Home Page
You are going to need a few things:
scripture verses, a theme, graphics, a plan,
music, fonts, links and more!
Sharing your faith with others on your Home Page:
How can I share "My Faith" with others on my Home Page?
As Christians we have a real opportunity to share the salvation message on our pages. On our holiday pages it is even more important. You will have alot of visitors during the holidays who might never otherwise visit a Christian site. How are you going to present the gospel?
Here are a few ideas:
This is the best present I can give you
Now add a link under the present to "The Four Spiritual Laws" site.
This is what I put on my main Christmas page:
This Christmas I would like you to receive the most important gift I can give you.
What I want to give you is "Salvation". It is a FREE gift from God. "For by GRACE are you saved through faith, it is a gift of God not of works lest any man should boast" Ephesians 2:8-9. Here is a link to "The Four Spiritual Laws" part of Campus Crusade for Christ. This page and site will follow up on your decision if you become a Chrisitian and they have wonderful resources. You can click here and read my personal testimony at "Annie's Testimony Page".
All the presents in the world won't matter if you spend eternity in hell. Don't put it off......you don't know what tomorrow may bring. Do you know what you would say if you tomorrow you died, you got to heaven and they asked you "Why should we let you in?" Believe me a long laundry list of all the good things you did isn't enough. Because nothing of your own merit will get you to heaven.....the only way is by accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior.
And here is one more simple salvation messages...
It's as easy as ABC to give your heart to the Lord.
All you have to do is:
Pray and ask the Lord to direct your mind and thoughts while you are creating your page. He will do it. God is good and He does answer prayer. The Lord gives me the wonderful ideas that I have used in creating my pages. When the ideas come I just have to grab a pen and paper and write them down. Remember what Psalm 32:8 says:
"I will instruct you and teach you in the way which thou shalt go
I will guide you with mine eye."

I just found a NEW Christian Webring Hosting site: AChristianWeb.com
I have joined 3 Webrings for Christmas and I have them listed at the bottom of my:
Annie's Christmas Webrings Page
You can find a listing of all my
Webrings on my new:
Annie's Webring's Page
just wanted to encourage all of you to join different rings and
things. What a wonderful way to tell others we
are "Christians". If some of you are new to the Internet let me explain this "webring" thing to you. You don't
have to join them to enjoy them either. A webring has like minded sites linked together. You can click on the
"List" which will give you all the members in the ring. Or you can just keep clicking "next" to follow the ring all
the way around. Of course all webrings should be viewed with "WISDOM" and "DISCERNMENT".
