I don't know where this past week has gone. I've kept busy being domestic...purr. That sounds a bit trite but its true none the less...=). I like to keep a batch of soup cooked up for lunchs and quick meals and added a meatloaf and pumpkin bars for my hungry men. And, my home is crying out for a spring cleaning...dust is decorating the pictures frames in my computer room shamelessly. Palm Sunday gave me a lot of thought for meditation...how our Lord suffered cruelly to take the punishment for our sins. You know, when you stop to think of it..the marvellous way God made our bodies, it makes sense that we were designed to live eternally...then came the sin in the garden and ever since we age and have illness. And the horrible place called hell, waiting to devour all who do not or will not receive the free gift of salvation that Christ allowed himself to be crucified to provide for ALL who are born into this world. Yes, lots of serious thoughts this week.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: Not of works lest any man should boast." Ephesians chapter 2, verses 8 & 9a....."wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he (Jesus) ever liveth to make intercession for them." taken from the book of Hebrews...chapter 7, verse 25. How does one become "saved" ? 1. Admit to God in prayer that you are a sinner and ask him to forgive you and save your soul....Romans chapter 3, verse 23 'for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" ....2. Romans 6:23.....Romans 10:9-13. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

a beautiful post!


I loved your post. I am glad I didn't have to depend on myself for my salvation. I am also glad it was a free gift.It overwhelms me sometimes when I stop to think what Christ did for me on the cross of Calvary. How he became my passover and he only had to do it once. I am so thankful.

The soup looks wonderful, Maggie ann. connie from Texas

Very well said...it's sad that some people do not even know about Jesus. I heard someone say on the radio once that they would much rather believe in Jesus than to not...very true! You always have to stop and think of the real reason we celebrate Easter and Christmas because it is easy to get caught up in everything else that goes with it! Very well said, Maggie Ann!

Dear Maggie-ann...This is what I really love about you blog.
You are forever telling people how they can be saved and in such a simple way and with such good Bible sriptures.

When we were kids, we were told that all those verses are like the Lord's knocking on our heart's door , like that verse in Rev. says, "Behold I stand at the door and knock"
There are so many of those "knock" verses, eh Maggie-ann?

Thanks so much for always visiting me.
I really appreciate it.
I will be visiting you more often now because I have more time now.

Today I am going to visit my friend Mamere.
Well she is a French gramma, in her eighties and she DOES have a regular name, but EVERBODY calls her Mamere just like everybody calls Mr. Yade Grampa Yade!

Have a good day. That soup looks SO good!!..Love Terry
