Sharing 9

An unexpected and sweet reminder:

 Though the fig tree should not blossom,
nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the LORD;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
GOD, the Lord, is my strength;
he makes my feet like the deer's;
he makes me tread on my high places.
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments.
(Habakkuk 3:17-19 ESV)

Have a wonderful week of sweet wanderings!!!

Sweet Reminders of Easter 2012

    As we go about our numerous wanderings during this dichotomous weekend of solemn reflection and wildly estatic celebrations, I am quietly reminded of two things:
 1. I worship a God that would rather die that spend eternity without me.
 2. I am free. Liberated and earth-shatteringly free. Free to receive this love. And free to love in return. Free from shame. And bought from guilt.

I am freed and loved.
And so are you.
This God is crazy about us. 

    Won't you come sit with me and enjoy these reminders as well?
    Have a festive Easter and remember this:
John 15: 13 (NIV): 
"Greater Love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."
