Colossians 3:3


"For you died,
and are hidden with Christ in God."

And in truth, if we only knew it, our chief fitness is our utter helplessness. His strength is made perfect, not in our strength, but in our weakness. Our strength is only a hindrance.

You are doing some beautiful photography - as if you need someone else to tell you that. Glad to see you are still playing your harp. Are you still considering making an album. I think you mentioned one time your mother wanted you to.

Missed saying HI to you at OT. So Hi a little (lot) late. We appreciate your being there even though I couldn't tell you in person. Hope you had a good time. And have a very special time this fall and Christmas. What a wonderful opportunity for the Christmas season.

Prayers and wonderful thoughts be with you.
Your OTF

Amen Bethany! Thanks for sharing that.

That is so true and so wonderful to know! Often we feel weak and incapable, and that goes against all that the world tells us and against what our flesh tells us. But how thrilling to know that in our weakness the Lord can use us more than if we were strong in ourselves!

God bless you!

Our strength is only a hindrance. Thank you for the reminder!

Love,
