All is grace, if the knee’s surrendered.
All is grace, if the eyes see and believe.
All is grace, if the heart receives all with gratitude, trusting the goodness of God.
And when all is grace, God working all things to certain good,
it’s our hands that hands that rise in thanks,
open and willingly to fully receive…
#2311 – #2332 of the One Thousand Gifts … of endless grateful love…
Little Ema’s home! Joy!
Pussy willows coming
muddy boots at the back door
Farmer talking to his farmer brothers: spring coming!
a son praying much over a business plan
piles of piano books
whole family Sunday afternoon chess matches with spectators hushed… and cheering!
Farmer in the blue polo shirt
4th week on the New York Times bestseller’s list… God continues a gratitude revolution, us all giving glory to Him!
her singing hymns while knitting
strawberries in March tasting like all June’s sweetness
sunshine warming our backs while serving up lunch: spring coming!
hard eucharisteo: praying with sick friends with well souls and this is the mattering part
finally taking the snowmen off the front porch (!), scrubbing out the fridge (!!)
a pastor taking us verse by verse through the Gospel of John
deep breathing through the to-do list
writing out Colossians verses, working on memory work… His words our bread
Christ and new life coming
a life that lives bowed and raised….
I am leaving you with a gift — peace of mind and heart.
And the peace I give
is a gift the world cannot give.
~John 14:27 NLT
