We all have fallen and go our own way.....

I was taking pictures of stuff in my bedroom and took a picture of this cross-stitch I did many many moons ago.  We are all stunned at what took place just this last Friday.  I thought of the kids and the families over there in Connecticut and we hug close our own families at this time.  And then, as I find myself caught up in thinking "Lord, come quickly" again....I am quickly reminded there are so many not ready to meet Jesus and we know through God's Word that He truly wishes that none would perish.  Sin is sin.  All of us, our sin put Jesus up on that cross, not just this 20 year old that did this horrible thing.  Someone wrote on my facebook that he was in hell.  I don't know where he is, it isn't up to me to say.....all I know is that he needed Jesus just like we all do and Jesus is available to all of us who take that leap of faith, trust and obey.  Accept His great love for you.  He came down from Heaven as a vulnerable baby to live and to die a horrible death, but He rose and lives within those who have invited Him in.  I don't know what tomorrow will bring.  This event has truly crossed a line on American soil, but know that horrific events happen all over this world to children and those not even yet given a chance to live.  

Remembering the "Innocent" which truly comes only through Christ......

"Blustery Day" according to Winnie the Pooh!!!

Everything is white and maybe even beautiful around here....BUT it is too cold to be walking around as we are dealing with serious below zero wind chills and the visibility beyond city limits is bad.  Something that can be so beautiful can also be so deadly....reminds me of "sin".  When we are in the midst of something and having to decide whether to proceed forth knowing it is wrong but, "oh, it feels good" or " it is just a little bad"....and not take a serious look at just how deadly it is because there is no such thing as a "little sin".

Not changing our circumstances in order to change our hearts!!!

I so appreciate this reminder.  
It helps me to get back to Him and not 
make it all about me!!!

Reading and studying Romans in my 
personal devotions....is has been an 
awesome time with the Lord!!!

I am so very thankful for the Word and 
recently looked at the history of what was 
sacrificed so that we have the Word today.  
The Book you have in your hands.....
came to be in your hands at a great price.

Only Because of Him.....
