((i am a little behind schedule in the announcing; thankfully, not in the naming))

the naming of a year, Ann's idea
i am thankful

2017, for me, The Year of of Koinonia (communion 2 Corinthians 13:14)

fellowship, association, community, joint participation

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.  If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:5-9

happy new year

Yet another quote

While the Bible allows for some plausible conclusions on the matter, we must be careful with speculation. Rather than dwelling on those details God chose not to reveal, a Christian’s time is better spent learning the deep truths of Scripture that are revealed for our growth and God’s glory (Deuteronomy 29:29).

yet another quotable quote

"In The Cost of Discipleship Dietrich Bonhoeffer makes it clear that grace is free, but it is not cheap. The grace of God is unearned and unearnable, but if ever we expect to grow in grace, we must pay the price of a consciously chosen course of action which involves both individual and group life." ~Richard Foster

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Matthew 6:21

i am ever thankful

i am ever thankful for His hand;
two were Christmas gifts,
one a "must read" per my dearest,
and i am ever in need of returning to simplicity.
