2009

Lord. . . as I cross each river . . . .

. .. and I take baby steps. . .day by day. .

.. .and I look for the beauty in each moment .. .

May I be reminded that you are by my side . .
from morning till morning . . .
You alone are worthy .. .of my praise. . .
Thank you Jesus. . for loving me. .
May I be pleasing to you . . .
I don't mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection! But I keep working toward that day when I will finally be all that Christ Jesus saved me for and wants me to be. No dear friends, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heaven.
Philippians 3:12-14
All for now. . .with love,
