Great quote of thought

I am sitting her editing a piece for someone PRESH and in his piece: has brought some great thought to meditate one.

"I'm not sure what mistakes you have made. I don't know what sinful memories are etched in your cerebral cortex. And I have no idea what failures form guilt around your life. But I don know this: God has not given up on you. He can't It's not in His nature. There are moments in our lives wen we fail so badly that we feel absolutely unworthy to receive the grace of God. And it is those moments of vulnerability that make us or break us spiritually. Either we lock ourselves in a cage of guilt and never come out, or we discover new dimensions of Gods grace that enable us to become a kingdom worker with big ideas.

"Post denial Peter had a been living in his guilt for several weeks when he was recommissioned by post-Resurrection Jesus. And the way it happened was no coincidence. John 1:15-17. . . . It was a reminder of his re-commissioning that produced feeling of gratitude. It gives a heart to seek after Him and become a kingdom worker. Think of it this way:

"Sin - Grace = Guilt

"Sine + Grace = Gratitude" by (to be revealed Mid July)

The joy of a fun filled day

"Oh my Geessh" ( i honor of Mya and Jen). We had a very full day yesterday but well worth it all.

We had our kickoff for VBS, 8 - 12:ish & then off towards home to celebrate. We got everything put together while wishing all our loved ones we weren't able to be with our love. On our way to celebrate with another family. It was a blast. I only wish I would have remembered my camera battery ready to shoot only to realize I put right next to the camera before gathering the food and FORGOT IT. So it will just have to be recollected in our hearts and our Memories. The funny one liner: "OH my Geeesh mom, Look at all the red hair in this family" ;-) I laughed when I was talking with Shannon that beside immediate "units" they all were not biologically related!!!! :-) But you would have thought they were. Brunettes were oddly out numbered. ;-)

So lots' of laughs, new memories, wonderful fellowship, plenty of swimming which we haven't had the opportunity to experience this summer so our girls LOVED the water time and fun. Even Hadassah has had fun being like a fish Friday and Monday in two separate private pool festivities! Goodness we made rekindled fun and then met wonderful new families that were absolute joys. It made for a great day then off to home to experience plenty of fireworks and our our display of sparklers. We needed that fun joy of being together. ;-)

So I pray your Independence Day brought warmth to your heart and he enjoyment of of being together in celebration.

Have a great time the rest of what is now your "today" and cease the moments. Time is fleeting so enjoy.
