to us a Son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor,
Prince of Peace."
The pastor talked about how being in the Glory of the Lord is feeling/knowing that God truly loves you....personally. Like the feeling that you are His favorite.......sometimes it is hard for people to feel that way when we have trials and disappointments. But this powerful reminder stirred up something in me and I look forward to my commitment to follow Him and what He has planned for my life. I will continue to tell others of how awesome it is to be walking with God right by your side....and knowing/trusting that no matter what is going on "in this upside down world".....you can always have peace and comfort when Jesus is in your heart. I pray that His Glory shines through me and draws others to Him.
I have this card hanging on my wall and I just love it. It says.......
Count on it: That's the kind of party the angels throw every time one lost soul turns to God ~Luke 15:10 (The Message)
oh, and speaking of parties........today is my sweet E's birthday.
We brought him home on Christmas Day in a stocking 11 years ago....he was a little peanut weighing only 4+ pounds....but we couldn't have asked for any bigger better gift in our lives.
Ezra in the Bible was a great teacher/priest. ("this Ezra came up from Babylon. He was a teacher well versed in the Law of Moses, which the LORD, the God of Israel, had given. The king had granted him everything he asked, for the hand of the LORD his God was on him."~Ezra 7:6)
And I will have to say that our E has taught us (and many others) a spirit of Christ with his compassion and …wisdom. He is so wise beyond his years...and I know he is destined to do great things in this world.
Happy Birthday E!!! Here he is all groggy this morning with his separated by 5 years twin sister.....
Peace and love
