Test of Time

Our faith is designed to last. Our life of following Christ is not without its seasons or its struggles. Doubts, life circumstances and even crises of faith batter us season after season. Yet, like an antique house, these seasons provide us with an opportunity to strengthen and build value to our lives as we, by faith, invite God’s partnership with us step by step along the way. And, faith that stands the test of time is beautiful to behold. Believers should look to more “seasoned” Christ-followers as role models. In them, we see the value of long-term faith and we can seek to imitate their lives.

Today, remember that God is in the business of building your faith – a faith that will stand the test of time. Invite Him to build your faith whatever experiences this day brings.

Oh,what a Grand Canyon!

We've been back from our Grand Canyon adventure for a week now, but the sights I saw are still so fresh in my mind. It was all inspiring to be in the presence of such a masterful creation by our almighty Creator! There were several different view points along the main road of the GC, but I was fortunate enough to see the depths and the great details to it as well, as I rode down the side of it on a mule for 5 hours! It was pretty amazing to have done that, and although my body ached for a few days after our return, it was completely worth it! My mule, Teddy, liked to either hug the edge of the trail or run my knees along the side of the canyon,
but after the day was done, he got me to the bottom,
safe and sound ( a little bruised, but safe)
Here's just a taste of what I saw, and remember that
it doesn't even begin to give justice to the glory that it was!



P.S. More pictures to come, this is just a sample!

Thankful Thursday

Wow, where do I start? I am so thankful for...

a safe move here to TX,
two precious gifts from God,
a husband who loves God more then he loves me,
constant provisions in uncertain times,
a renewed spirit,
a refreshed marriage,
being surrounded by people who have Christ in the center of their lives
the free gift of grace, though I am completely undeserving

Today, and everyday, I am overwhelmed with God's goodness in my life, and I have faith that although we are in uncertain times, that my constant hope can be found in a living and loving God! What are you thankful for today?
