God always gives you all the grace you need. So you will only have to suffer for a little while. Then God himself will build you up again. He will make you strong and steady. And he has chosen you to share in his eternal glory because you belong to Christ. Give him the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 5:10-11
forever grateful, forever counting His gifts #841-880
how He loves me, His Grace
and how even still, somehow, there always seems to be more
i did not know that i had missed it, but there's just something about having two people in love with Jesus, completely focused on Him - (who you love and know and they also love and know you) - standing by your side singing to Him; Sunday worship with my I do on one side and K love on the other
being remembered in an unexpected way of Truth learned long ago: we need authentic community - where we first and foremost love Him and we also love one another
how He has blessed me richly with those who love me, truly
the way Valentine's day gives permission to express love in a fun and carefree way
belated birthday celebration at Sweet!
arriving to a line out the door (it was Valentine's!) and
all smiles all around embracing the fun and happy
that not one of the seven needed to choose joy as we were each joy-full
this adorable valentine for us, her hand-made bird
girl love's valentine gift from her bff
how my cheeks blush humble red in the reading of her exhortation
and that when the deceiver comes i choose to take every thought to Jesus...
and how we often talk together of Sacred echoes and then there is yet another
“And a state of mind is — taking captive every wandering thought. Why not make all these worries obedient to Christ, the very Person of Peace?”
going with friends to watch their youngest daughter play competitive college golf
boy love singing whole heartedly at his third piano lesson
hearing instructor say, "that was fantastic! but will you play it again, this time naming the notes?"
that He is changing me, the continual transformation...
presently, He's changing me through the reading and the choosing and the living of
the dare of one thousand gifts
that He is changing those i love, the continual transformation...
He's changing them through the... dare of one thousand gifts
that He is changing those i do not know, the continual transformation...
He's changing them through... the dare of one thousand gifts
that He invites you (Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name, Psalm 100:4)
that she's invited you
that they've invited you
that i wonder, is it possible to seek Him in the reading of
the dare of one thousand gifts and not choose to live the Eucharisteo?
is it possible to not be a life changed in this Grace, this Thanksgiving, this Joy?
and that i do not believe it is
that running is a positive outlet for the physical 'stuff'wanting to explode
that girl love asks to run with us, as she desires to be a part of the healing process
witnessing the changing
cool, calm readiness to try again
the fantastic four together on a weekday at a sporting event
feeling the roar of the engines in your bones
(i know it's bad for the environment) seeing a lone white balloon against the blue, blue sky float up, up, and away
BIG shadows of small lizards
my camera, with its missing pieces
missing my camera b/c i left it behind
knowing i will get it back - later
greater appreciation for my camera with its missing pieces
nine-year-old girl love saying:
8:18; 8 x 1 = 8
that nine-year-old girl love will be ten-year-old girl love by the next Multitude Monday
