Titus 2:11-12

"The grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age."


Satan has deceived many into focusing on the good life while missing the holy life.

so beautiful!! That is so true, and people don't even want to live a Godly life, even if they do know what it is. It isn't easy, but it is well worth the sacrifice - for did He not do so much for us??

Thank you for the good thoughts to think upon!

How true, Bethany! We so easily get our eyes off of the very thing that God would use in our life to make us more like HIM! Thank you for the encouragement!! Once again...you've been a blessing! Love you, sister!

Interesting picture. One of my students told me that if you break open a sand dollar there are structures inside that resemble angel wings. I never had the heart to break one open - they have such beautiful radial symmetry on the outside.

There is an interesting quote to the effect that God made each of us as angels with only one wing. We can only fly if we embrace someone else. May you always have someone to embrace.

And may you and Rachel be embraced by God on your upcoming journey.
