Day 365

Happy New Year's Eve! Thank you for sticking around S&S 365!! It hasn't been as easy keeping up with this blog and there have been a lot of repeats from past years...but my main objective here is to always point to Jesus. I never want this to be about me or a chore to check off my list - and honestly it has felt that way at times. Thank you for grace and for coming along side this little photo journal.  God has a hold on - tomorrow - and the future!   "So here’s what... to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life— & place it before God as an OFFERING.  EMBRACING what God does for you is the best thing you can do for Him… FIX your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out.” ~Romans 12:1-2 (MSG)

Day 345 - It's been awhile since I have actually written something.

God Showed Up... What seemed to be a normal night for me was not normal at all. My daughter was at dance, my husband and son at hockey, and me at home waiting to go back to dance. I began pulling out gifts to wrap for Christmas when the phone rang. It was my husband – which was really odd that he would be calling and calling the house. He should be on the ice coaching. I thought maybe something happened to our son. When I answered he began telling me about a phone call he just got from one of our friends. Her dogs were just attacked by another dog, one was killed and the other took off. She wanted us to put a message on our community Facebook page and then to go look for her dog. I did just that. I put the message out and grabbed my boots, a flashlight, an extra leash, and my phone. I looked back at my dog who was ready to assist me and said to her, “Nope, you are staying here!”  I headed out and ran into a few neighbors who were out looking as well. We all went in diffe

"What is unique about the kingdom of God is that you are assured of victory. You have won! You are assured that you will someday stand before the face of God and see the King of Kings. You are assured that someday you will enter a world where there will be no more pain, no more tears, no more sorrow. If you have no faith in the future, then you have no power in the present. If you have no faith in the life beyond this life, then your present life is going to be powerless. But if you believe in the future and are assured of victory, then there should be a dance in your step and a smile on your face." ~from the Inspirational Study Bible

One of the reference points of London is the Charing Cross. It is near the geographical center of the city and serves as a navigational tool for those confused by the streets. A little girl was lost in the great city. A policeman found her. Between sobs and tears, she explained she didn't know her way home. He asked her if she knew her address. She didn't. He asked her phone number; she didn't know that either. But when he asked her what she knew, suddenly her face lit up. "I know the Cross," she said. "Show me the Cross and I can find my way home from there." So can you. Keep a clear vision of the Cross on your horizon and you can find your way home. ~from And the Angles Were Silent
