Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

The love of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ surpasses all understanding. It is unfailing, given in abundance and for all to receive.

Thank You,  Jesus Christ, that You will let no one separate me from Your love. Even now, You stands before our Father God, interceding on my behalf, knowing what to pray for me, knowing what it is I need. Your Holy Spirit lives in me and is my Guide and Counselor.

Let me not be discouraged, nor falter in moving along the path You have set before me. Open the eyes and ears of my heart that I may see, hear and act on your Word. Even when I don’t know why I am in certain circumstances, I know that you are there with me.

You are the Creator of all things, You sustain the universe, You are the great “I AM” , Who was, Who is, and Who forever will be. I pray that I shall never let the world’s condemnations stop me from moving on Your chosen path, nor keep me from speaking your Name or of the love you have for all of us. Your mercy and forgiveness is for everyone and I pray that I shall share this message and not be discouraged nor let condemnation or fear of ridicule keep me from doing so.

I pray in Jesus’s most precious and Holy Name.

Romans 8:34-36  New International Version (NIV)
34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered

Clutter vs. Memories


After emptying out my cupboards for a remodeling project, I have begin to put back all the stuff I thought to be so necessary in my life. However, I don’t seem to have the room for them and with my husband standing close by questioning the need or use for most of them, I’m having to make choices. “To keep or not to keep.” (sorry Shakespeare) Almost every one of my pieces have memories attached. So the boxes that have the “take to the children or grandchildren” or “take to Salvation Army” have been emptied and filled back up several times.

So now I’m thinking that maybe just writing about the memories — the when, why, and what for– that brought these items into my life, or cupboards and shelves might be the solution. They can be put in to a “memory cupboard” or journal and it would take up lots less space.

It’s done — I didn’t write the journal, instead, I kissed my treasures good-by and gave the memories a hug. Those ” old friends” will hang around, God willing.
