Grace as Gift

 24.10.11



"What we do with a gift afterward is simply show our gratitude, our thanksgiving..."


And that is what I do today, publicly give thanks to God who has given me grace upon grace....

(#1397- 1415)

Gifts to bless others

This book

My girl's beautiful heart, music, and wonderful photography!



 Having a son who makes our days more interesting and is always up to something new, like making chainmail.

My son in a faraway land, seeing him so happy; and for the wonderful community of believers  in which he is immersed, who lives the gospel in such a vivid way.

Pictures and words that travel thousands of kilometers through the space to meet those that I love so much, in less than a second!

Having had our pretty Saint Bernard, Kima, for four years. She was a wonderful dog, and we will miss her very much. (She died last Friday)


Diligent students

The gift of being able to teach

A pretty wedding

Deep blue skies

A new coffee maker

The book of James in the Bible

Art on my window


Small verses that have me thinking, praying and mediating.

"Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another". Mark 9: 50

The Holy Spirit dwelling in me.

The Lord speaking to my heart through His Word.

These words:

"I doubt that there is such a thing as a measure of spirituality, but if there is, gratitude would be it. Only the grateful are paying attention. They are grateful because they pay attention, and they pay attention because they are so grateful" (Barnes, The Pastor as Minor Poet, quoted by Douglas Wilson).

I pray I will live every day paying attention...

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."

-Persis

“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.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
