Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

flowers of blessing

Even from something (or someone)
with a thorny exterior and in unlikely surroundings
may we find the flowers of blessing.

“Things do not pass for what they are,
but for what they seem.
Most things are judged by their jackets.”
- Baltasar Gracian

“The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.
Man looks at the outward appearance,
but the Lord looks at the heart.”
- 1 Samuel 16:7 NIV

What a beautiful and inspiring blog devoted to our Savior. Each day I also give gratitude to our Father in Heaven for sending his Beloved Son to atone for each of us. I look forward to reading more of your offerings in His name:)

I very much like the first poem. I wish we could see people as the lords see's them.
