Some single Christians sometimes are afraid they are going to have a lonely Christmas. How to turn it into one filled with cherished memories and excitement? Dr. Jim talks about his own experience of spending Christmas alone. Not everyone is able to be with family or friends. How can we share our joyful spirit when we don’t feel happy?
Lonely Christmas Again
Ho, ho, ho or no, no, no?
Christmas is only a few days away and our world is filled with Christmas ads for shoppers. Radio stations are playing Christmas music 24 hours a day. Some start before Thanksgiving. It is a wonderful time of year – right? Well, not for many single adults. The emphasis only serves to magnify what they do not have as a result of their single status.
Christmas is just around the corner, with the scent of Christmas already here. With this wonderful day approaching, we’ve got a great way to celebrate and have a joyful and merry spirit! We’ve listed some of the nicest Christmas quotes we know.

I can’t help but think about how those shepherds must have felt when they first saw and heard the angels proclaiming the coming of the Messiah. Oh, what joy! Our desire is that these Christmas quotes touch your heart at this special occasion, as was declared: “Peace on Earth, and goodwill toward all mankind.”
The marriage meaning for Christians: we see how society tries to impose their worldviews on us and our faith. We see how Christianity is looked down upon, or the blasphemy thrown at us, or even lost Christians who don’t follow the teachings of the Holy Bible. And, have their own set of rules and beliefs (which forever get worse). So then, what is the real meaning of marriage for us as Christians?
The Meaning Of Marriage
As Christians, we should make sure we don’t allow ungodly teaching, thinking, or acts to negatively affect us and our families. On this blog post about the marriage meaning, we have some wonderful words from Jennifer Flanders about what society teaches us – and what Christianity teaches us about marriage.

Anyone who really knows me will tell you that I LOVE new technology. My professional career began with the automation of banking years ago. I was among the first in the insurance agency industry to automate my office to computers. The Internet has opened new doors and opportunities and I embraced the opportunity and calling to use it to serve single adults. I think that the Internet has brought one of the greatest revolutions to mankind that we will likely ever experience.

ChristianCafe.com guest writer K.L. Freebyrd writes about the real meaning of true love. This is about what some people dream about and what reality brings us. And, how building a solid relationship in Christ can make our relationships stronger with each other.
What is true love?
A question millions of us ask ourselves at some point in our lives, whether seeking a mate in the dating scene, or just after a breakup. It is a question that Christians and non Christians have struggled with throughout the ages. It’s controversial and often subjective.
Some people dream of a knight in shining armor saying all the right things at all the right times, without a single complaint, whisking us away off into the sunset to live happily ever after. Others may think it means having an undeniable, unfading connection with a soul mate who never argues and accepts us exactly how we are without judgment or strife. Sounds great, doesn’t it? There are just a few small flaws with that perception.
Dr. Jim explains how to spot early signs of a violent partner and how to guard yourself from falling into the trap of having a violent spouse and a broken marriage later on.
