1 Peter 2:7



To you who believe,
the Lord is precious.





Thank you, Lord, for Your mercy that is new every morning.

Thank you for the delights of seeing a baby's first steps, for giggles with little sisters, for having a big brother to miss, for the glory of Your Word, for Your ever ready forgiveness.

And Lord, though I see Your hand in all these things, I most of all praise You for Who You are. Truly -- You are precious.

Wow, another EXCELLENT post, Bethany!! Isn't it amazing - most of the time we don't realize how much we have. So much of it is the way you look at things!! Like the fact that you have an older brother!!

As always, the picture is adorable!!

My dad just read this verse this morning! A really neat thought...

"Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious..." 1 Peter 2:6-7a

Peace. --Jacob
