From Here and There


The Adoration of the Magi (engraving) by Albrecht Dürer

Just for you to know....

Our Christmas Tree is still up; lights are on and the spirit of Christmas is still hanging in the air. We are still talking about the different events surrounding our Lord's coming. Every thing will remain like this until the Feast of the Epiphany on January 6th (In the context of the Christian Church, Epiphany has a more specific reference: it celebrates the manifestation of the divine nature of Jesus to the Gentiles as represented by the Magi. The feast of Epiphany is observed on January sixth, twelve days after Christmas.)  So, yes... I still have one more post under the series "Celebrating the Incarnation of Our Lord" next Wednesday, when, God willing, I will be sharing about the Wise Men visiting our Saviour Jesus Christ.

On Blog Reading... what I want to do this coming year.

I just LOVE to read my friend's thoughts, your thoughts,  I am always encouraged to hear how the Lord is dealing with each one of us. I am grateful that I have been "reading" many books with you, just by reading your excerpts, quotes and thoughts. Now, I don't want to miss those grains of wisdom I am gleaning, so I have decided, to read you always with my journal on hand to pour in there what I am learning from you. (I have done it before, but not as a regular habit)

On Kindles...

I am in. Yes. I cannot believe it but I have a Kindle now.  The most surprising thing: I am actually enjoying it!  I even thought on writing a review, but my friend Trisha did an excellent one, so I will invite you to read hers here and please also read this little piece she wrote which really made me laugh. (also about Kindles)

On gifts that take one year to make and thoughts for 2011...

This is a B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. idea that Missy shares with us... a book of quotes, thoughts and ideas, that she made for her husband. I would really want to do that.  You can read more about this here.
She also wrote a thought provoking post about her resolutions for 2011. I encourage you to read this too.

On Memorizing the Word of God...

My Moleskin is ready. I am already working with the first verses of this beautiful and challenging project: Memorizing Philippians "The goal is to memorize the entire book of Philippians by Easter Sunday (April 24, 2011) through partnering with other believers using the memory moleskine."   You still have time to join us!

On reading together....

I also have my e-book ready to read along with other believers Help Heavenward by Octavius Winslow; Matthew Blair is hosting this Reading Group. maybe you would like to join us too.

A Closing quote from my good friend Elizabeth DeBarros:

"Resolutions scare me for the will-worship required to keep them, but if by some touch of grace I can change, become more like Christ, so help me God"

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!

Under His sun and by His grace...

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”
