Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Good Friday

Hubby returned yesterday evening from being gone a night for work. I had semi-made plans for the boys to be with Aunt and Hubby and I to go out Friday evening. I appreciate Hubby taking the spiritual lead for our home and saying that we were going to go to a Good Friday service instead. There just happened to be one at a church near our home.

Didn't know it going, but it turned out to be a drama. Have "known" this and read about it for years, but seeing it portrayed in a drama made it so much more "real" and meaningful - Jesus came for ALL people. Rich, poor, thieves, guards, those in authority, everyone! The worst part about the whole evening was the drama ended with Jesus being put in the tomb..... Of course what did I expect?

I love hearing M & L's insight and questions about the play and about Easter this year. We're experiencing it on a new level --they're too old for using the Resurrection eggs. Sigh.... M. has been reading about Passion week at the urging of his youth pastor. Yay! Youth Pastor!

When we walked out of church it was a sauna! We could see the air, it was so thick. I told Hubby that if his Dad were with us, he would be gasping for breath! I think if we're going to get stuck with humidity, we should at least get the beach to go along with it! However, the weather pattern was worth it. This was the sky

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Psalm 19:1


  1. May you have a blessed Resurrection weekend!

    In His Grace, Tamara

  2. Gasping the word "wow" just doesn't sum up how I feel about that sky and the truth of that verse. I love it when we get to LIVE God's Word! Thank you for sharing your experience as a testimony of Him being true to us!

  3. Isn't it amazing, that even children look with wonder at a world full of His glory and see him in everything; a beautiful sky (you're correct, if humid, at a beautiful beach), a truth made evident in a worn out heart, or a gentle kiss from a loving daughter-in-law.
    Thank you for your love.
    A blessed Easter to M, L, and your loving husband.
    In His grip,

  4. Dear Annette...Easter Blessings to you and your family! Hugs ♥ Teri
