Greater love


Jesus showed us once and for all what He is like and what kind of love He has for us, by dying on the cross. And that is fact. History.

Nothing, no circumstance, no matter how hard or painful can change that. He has showed us His character once and for all.

Our circumstances are not the window through which we understand His love, but rather we must view our circumstances through His love.

(Elisabeth Elliot: A Path Through Suffering)


"Greater love has no one than this,
than to lay down one's life for his friends."
-John 15:13

Oops...I meant Bethany, not Bethay! I think you knew that, but now I get just one more chance to say, "I love YOU!" :)

Wow, such a great quote. I was just reading a book by and then listening to Nancy Leigh DeMoss who said in essence that very thing. Thanks so much for sharing that. What a precious hope we have... always... no matter what!!!

Lovely picture too ;). You don't know what it does to my level of missing you. (((HUGS))) from WI!!
