Called to praise



"Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people;
that ye should show forth the praises of Him
who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light."
- 1 Peter 2:10



Thankfulness
is a soil in which pride does not easily grow. An ungrateful person is a proud person, and if I'm ungrateful, I'm arrogant. And God apposes that arrogance.
-C. J. Mahaney

Oh wow. I LOVE that quote... Coming from one of my favorite authors :). He just puts things into perspective so well. And how true.... There can possibly be no room for pride in a heart that's filled with gratefulness. What a challenge and inspiration.

For starters, how grateful I am to have you for a friend ;). ((((HUGS))))

I would love to have the directions for making your Bible cover. My email address is dtgrimm@adams.net. We heard your family sing at Old Threshers a few weeks ago, and I have been keeping up with your blogs ever since. Thanks for being such a blessing!
