one thousand gifts {2874-2893}

“Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”

{Isaiah 1:18}

We’ve had some really crazy weather here over the last week. It’s been 0*. It’s been 70*. It’s been sunny and springlike. It’s been snowy and icy. Watching snow fall is one of my favorite things to do and I can’t help but think of Isaiah 1:18 nearly every time I see a blanket of snow covering my street. What grace He has shown in pardoning my sin! Scarlet to snow. Crimson to wool. Aren’t you thankful?

2874. rainy mondays with just the right amount of things to do
2875. getting together with old friends (courtney & will) and hearing how God is using them for His glory!
And here’s where I add my plea for you to help my friend Will as he raises support to go back to Costa Rica as a full-time missionary to broken young people and those who have been sexually exploited, sharing the love of Jesus with them through LightForce International.
2876. gorgeous spring-like weather with sun so bright stephen foster would write a song about it!

2878. getting to write–so fulfilling!

Sorry for the lack of pictures. The upload thingy was being awfully contrary.

“To see the glory, name the graces.”

Since reading One Thousand Gifts, I started my own journal of grace-gifts God blesses me with every day. I will spare listing all of them here, but I will try to share some of my favorites every Monday.
