2017 ... is upon us ...

here is a repost from 5 years ago ... blessings on all who stop by ... may grace be ever present.


"... God's grace is not only sufficient - it is inexhaustible. Remember the story Roy Gustafson told of the little fish who said, "I am so thirsty but I must not drink too much . The ocean might run dry." Or the little mouse in the granaries of Egypt who said, "I am so hungry. But I must not eat too much. The grain might not last." Or the little swallow, soaring and dipping through the sky, thinking, "I must not breathe too deeply; I might use up all the air."

Whatever the need, whatever the situation, "he giveth more grace"

(James 4:6). ..."taken from Legacy of a Pack Rat by Ruth Bell Graham ...

to you my dear blog buds ... i wish a new year that is so full of God's grace - for every and all situations - that your cup will continually run over ... so you may glorify HIM, who redeemed us ... that the world will know we are different and children of the Most High ...

re post ...

 5 years ago ... sharing it again ... 



i miss christmas' past ... when we were able to gather with family - the noise, the children and wrapping paper strewn everywhere ... days that have gone by ...leaving only sweet memories and faded pictures as reminders ... 

these days, as christmas time quiets down for us, the stillness helps my cluttered brain settle on my heart's celebration of Jesus  ...  His redemptive visit to planet earth ... then i look to the future and  His return ... thoughts that my earth bound mind has trouble visualizing  ... yet the spirit born within me, hums and thinks on these things ... angels singing, wise men bowing and lowly shepherds (that'd be me) kneeling with awe ... Jesus has come!

Who's opinion?


when you wonder what to do ... in any given circumstance ... do what pleases God ... the world might not love you for it - but in the end, Who's opinion really matters?

trying to keep it sweet and simple ... it's all about forgiveness and love ... show grace ... because we have received grace ...
