Amaryllis

I had some time to spare, so thought I would share some pictures I just took of an amaryllis. What joy, not only to see it, but to be able to capture it for others to see. I hope you all have a wonderful New Year, with many blessings. marja

Brothers and sisters all

  There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Creating a new reality

  Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:18-19   Are you plagued by memories of a painful past, memories of being […]

Imagine

  God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:9   I hope you don’t mind, but with this I continue a topic similar to what I spoke of last week, but much different. Have you ever wondered how it might have been to be […]

Me? an activist? – excerpt 6

From I Will not Hide April 2012: I don’t like myself very much right now. Who do I think I am, anyway, making such a big deal over something I disagreed with my pastor on? Am I cut out to be an activist? I don’t think all this disagreeing and fussing over things makes me […]
