My hope for you....





My hope for you is for people to treat you and your loved ones with generous grace.   No one has walked in your shoes or knows exactly what is going on in your heart and your mind at any moment.
May you understand and feel the love and grace God has for you....




None of us deserve to share in the grace God extends to us through His Son in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  We know it is a free gift!






Christ freely gives:
a love that is kind
a love that hopes
a love that speaks a soft answer
a love that does not fail


the scripture says
Romans 5:5-8
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
 (KJV)





Not only did Jesus DO nothing amiss.....He thought no evil against His accusers!  He became Life so that we might have LIFE....


Lord, today I come to you so unworthy of your grace, and yet I know you give it freely and willingly.  May I be willing to generously share that grace to others who might fall short of perfect(just like me) , and generously give grace and love even when they don't share it with me....

Walk in the Light.

A couple weeks ago  right before Nate's wedding,  I decided to go have  a nice manicure.  It was kind of dark in the salon  and I  thought to myself how is she going to see what she's doing? Have you ever tried to complete a project in the darkness. We can try our hardest and think it's turning out correct, but until we view it in the light, there is no telling how it will turn out.....
My manicure?  Not great! 

Staying in close fellowship with God will insure the best possible outcome for our lives.  

God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all......

*When we walk with God we will have light for whatever task is at hand:-)
