Today

I have all kinds of things I'd like to say right now. I have fun things and achy things and things I started to say yesterday but didn't have time to finish.

But the rain is pounding down and I find everything extra settling down around my feet in a pile.

I'll pick it back up later.

For now, there's just one thing.


Amazing love! How can it be, that Thou my God, shouldst die for me?
-Charles Wesley, 1738


I hope that today I will walk in the full knowledge that God's love for me was that great.

I hope you'll join me.

  8. Oh I love this hymn.
    And the fact that all of the words are true.
    My chains fell off, my heart was free!

  10. Grace, simply amazing!. There is a little cemetery in Piqua where free slaves were buried. Each head stone reads:" Born a slave, died free". How profound, that is each Christian's story in a nut shell. Grace is God doing us a favor we don't deserve. I too hope to grasp more and more each day what His grace really means. And how it is driven by His furious love for us.
