There are few other seasons so looked forward to here in the south,
maybe with the exception of Autumn.
There is such a freshness, a newness, to life.
I love the signs of spring outside and around our little cottage…
// kitchen mantel, with prism reflection //
I love the Holy Week, the Easter celebration…
I’m in awe of all the Jesus Christ has done.
What a precious Savior!
And everything we are and have is not too much to offer Him.
Nothing could be too much, in light of all HE is and what HE has done.
I’m pondering this quote from Randy Alcorn:
“Holiness was once a central component of following Christ.
But for many today, the Christian life is little more
than a celebration of cheap grace and pseudo-liberty,
with a high tolerance for sin.”
And this one, by Kevin DeYoung:
“Worldliness is whatever makes sin look normal
and righteousness look strange.”
I’m reading a book by DeYoung,
with the thought of holiness being not a legalistic endeavour,
but a grateful response to a Holy, Precious Savior.
// a few hours of solo time //
// the little raised bed garden //
There is such a feeling of life in the air,
a feeling of hope.
There is such inspiration, such motivation.
Spring cleaning & Mrs. Meyers may be in full swing one of these days!
Those who have read this [small, irregular] blog – thank you!
This began as a place for family to keep up with our lives far away,
and it has grown a bit from that.
Those who read and comment – I loved loved meeting new friends, and hope it continues!
It’s not so much the comments themselves, but the feeling of friendship and community that they give that I have loved here.
Those who read without commenting – that’s so okay, because this is a public spot and you are under no obligation to comment. ;)
But you all have made this such a fun, enjoyable, happy place for me.
To one and all ~ Happy Springtime!
