Books [No Longer] on Our Floor #4

Here is why the books are no longer on the floor: Not a grand photo, I know, but I just wanted to show you our newest idea for storing library books. We now have a baby crawling everywhere, putting all of Raelynn’s library books (and our reputation at said establishment) in jeopardy. I don’t haveContinue reading “Books [No Longer] on Our Floor #4”

No Giving Up

Before a single rooster crows, you will deny and disown me three times. (Jesus, Matthew 26:75) Peter did; he blatantly denied Jesus in His darkest hour, yet went on to become a church builder and Bible writer. I am conscious of my transgressions… my sin is ever before me. Against You, You only, have IContinue reading “No Giving Up”

Unstable

Just staying home… there’s a bunch of laundry and I guess I have that blood donation appointment this afternoon, however that works out.” Fact #1: I haven’t written anything on my to-do list yet for today. Fact #2:Continue reading “To-Do List”

Mercy Extended

For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him. John 3:17 AMP I usually accept this verse as a recipient: “Thank You, God, for offeringContinue reading “Mercy Extended”
