A Christmas Treat at La Casita

Diners at La Casita Mexican Restaurant were lucky to enjoy great food and the best of local entertainment Friday night. It was a Mexi-Christmas moment for Navasota and a special treat to anyone paying attention, as two of Navasota's most decorated entertainers gave a music fiesta with a little help from their friends...

Misslette the Singing Cowgirl and Tubie Pushee put on a tight little show, offering variety and musical virtuosity.
 
Misslette and Tubie have joined up before to entertain their devoted fans at Navasota's most popular eating tradition. Both award-winning and often nominated musicians, their music was a great gift from La Casita to their clientele.
 
 Tubie lays it down.
 
Singer-songwriter Tubie Pushee has released four blues-rock albums and established himself as the top guitar song-smith in the Brazos Valley, not only producing great songs but helping many guitarists sharpen their skills as well. Tubie is always a big supporter of whatever is going on locally, ready to lend his talents. He is always there when we need a lift.
 
Misslette sings, plays guitar and lends her passionate harmonica to Tubie's blues.
 
Misslette The Singing Cowgirl is a worthy counterpart, just as community-minded, and an accomplished musician and singer, able to deliver up equally professional cover songs, in country, blues, jazz and  western. Together they cover all the bases!
 
After many years of bringing tasty Tex-Mex food to the Brazos Valley, La Casita Restaurant is as popular as ever. Thanks to them, there was country, rock and a little blues to nod along with as the enchiladas and margaritas went down.
 
IN ADDITION, on hand to salt the mix was songwriter Mitch White who offered some of his latest "grunge" rock originals. They are excellent. And Misslette's sister Suzonne, played an authentic bowed psaltry, fashioned from cherry wood. Suzonne is a  classically trained musician, and sang some Christmas classics. I can say with some confidence, Navasota has never heard such accomplished and diverse artistry in any of its various venues.


Misslette and sister Suzonne. All the Caillouet kids are musicians... and good ones.
 
Last but not least, these incredible, talented and qualified entertainers invited me to sing a few songs, and gave me my Christmas, to get to sing with them backing me up. If you love to sing, you might be able to imagine how thrilling that would be. If not... well, you'll just have to take my word for it. What a way to top off the year... a golden evening to remember with these precious friends. Thanks to La Casita for providing another chapter to "It's a Wonderful Life"!
 
Merry Christmas.  If you have not given yourself a similar memory, it's not too late. BUT YOU HAVE TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!

  1. WHAT DID THE FIRST CHRISTIANS BELIEVE?

    THE CHURCH OF CHRIST HAD ITS BEGINNING ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST 33 A.D.. WHAT BELIEFS AND ACTIONS DID THE THREE THOUSAND CONVERTS TO CHRIST HAVE IN COMMON? DID GOD APPROVE OF EVOLVING BELIEFS, DIFFERENT REQUIREMENTS FOR SALVATION? IF THAT WERE TRUE, THEN WOULD IT NOT BE FOUND IN THE NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES?

    Acts 2:41 So then, those who received his word were baptized; and there were added about three thousand souls. Acts 2:47....And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.

    All three thousand believed the apostle Peter's message and were baptized in water. Then they were added to the Lord's church by the Lord Himself. The Lord did not add the unsaved to His church. They had to believe and be baptized in water prior to being added to the body of Christ.

    1. Acts 2:22 Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know---

    All three thousand believed Jesus was a miracle worker.

    2. Acts 2:31-32 he looked ahead and spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that He was neither abandoned to Hades, nor did His flesh suffer decay. 32 This Jesus God raised up again, to which we are all witnesses.

    All three thousand believed in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    3. Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ---this Jesus whom you crucified."

    All three thousand believed that Jesus was Lord and Christ.

    4. Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

    All three thousand repented in order to have sins forgiven. (repentance meant that they made the commitment to turn from their unbelief and sinful lifestyle and turn toward God).

    All three thousand were baptized in water in order to have their sins forgiven.

    All three thousand received the indwelling gift of the Holy Spirit after they believed, repented, and were baptized in water.

    5. Acts 2:40 And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on exhorting them, "Be saved from this perverse generation!"

    All three thousand were saved after they believed Peter's message: They believed, repented, confessed, and were baptized in water. (Mark 16:16, John 3:16, Acts 3:19, Acts 2:38, Romans 10:9-10, Acts 8:35-38) THEN THEY WERE ADDED TO THE LORD'S CHURCH! (Acts 2:47)

    WHAT THINGS DID PETER NOT PREACH AND WHAT THINGS DID THE THREE THOUSAND NOT BELIEVE.

    1.Peter did not preach that men were saved by grace alone.

    2.Peter did not preach that men were saved by faith only

    3.Peter did not preach that God had selected a few to be saved and that all others would go to hell.

    4. Peter did not preach that water baptism was not essential to salvation.

    5. Peter did not preach that Jesus was just one of many Saviors.

    6. Peter did not preach that once you were saved, that you could continue in a sinful lifestyle and still be saved.

    7. Peter did not preach that God did not have the power to give us an inerrant translation of the Scriptures.

    8. Peter did not preach that God would provide hundreds or thousands of different Christian denominations, and that they would teach different ways of being saved.

    9. Peter did NOT preach that you had to speak in tongues as evidence that you were saved.

    AS BELIEVERS IN CHRIST, MEN SHOULD USE THE BIBLE AS THEIR GUIDE FOR SALVATION. Looking to man-made creed books, Bible commentaries, denominational statements of faith, and church catechisms, is looking in all the wrong places for the absolute truth!
