Acceptance with Joy

Monday, February 11, 2013




We all need "Acceptance with Joy"...to welcome with open arms whatever God may put in our path.  Counting those things that I accept with joy...

{3,165-3,181}

-Words from fellow Christians
-The sustaining grace of God
-Watching others grow in Christ
-Watching my son compete
-A moose in our front yard

-Watching two little girls play at a restaurant at a table.  They were so cute.  I miss that age!
-Blessings spoken on my life
-Heartache that heals
-A God that picks up the pieces
-Stories of overcoming
-Aloe vera plants to give away
-Hope
-Time to get everything done
-Stories of my grandpa
-That God always shows up
-This quote:  As in nature, as in art, so in Grace; it is rough treatment that gives souls as well as stones their luster -the more the diamond is cut , the brighter it sparkles; and in what seems hard dealing, there God has no End in view but to perfect his people.--Thomas Guthrie

acceptance with joy is such a challenge... and evidence of the grace of God when we do.
