This is the first time I have written a blog, so be patient with me as we go. This blog is primarily going to be about God's Word and how it has impacted my life and the life of my family and friends. I think a fitting place to begin is with quotes from my mother's Bibles.
My mother was a very Godly lady! She taught Sunday School for over 50 years. If you know anything about Baptist Sunday School, you know that they study the Old and New testaments. After Mother died, I was blessed with her Bibles. She had written in all of them. So here are a few of my favorites. I hope you will enjoy reading them.
From the New Testament – J.B. Phillips (this was probably Mother's favorite translation) These are things Mother wrote in the front and back blank pages of this Bible.
“Committed to Him, life is a pilgrimage with a redemptive purpose and a certain destination.” D.Holcomb
“The secret of happiness and longevity is to cherish and cultivate cheerful, hopeful, buoyant spirits” C. Depew
Religion is the story of what a sinful man tries to do for a Holy God. The Gospel is the story of what a Holy God has done for sinful men. Religion is man-made. The Gospel is the gift of God Religion is good views. The Gospel is good news. Ray Gustafson
Stewardship encompasses all that He intended me to be. The King of Love. My shepherd is. His goodness fails never. I lack for nothing if He is mine And I am His forever.
I will have more next time..... Have a wonder-filled day!
