I’ve been on a social media hiatus over the holidays and will be slowly getting back in to the posting groove.
I’ve been working on so many projects lately and am enjoying what each one is teaching me. I’ll share bits of them in the future but for now here is my November Highlights for my family. It was such a great month!
What have you guys been working on this new year?
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in Him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
— Jeremiah 17:7-8
„So macht meine Freude dadurch vollkommen, dass ihr eines Sinnes seid, gleiche Liebe habt, einmütig und einträchtig seid. Tut nichts aus Eigennutz oder um eitler Ehre Willen, sondern in Demut achte einer den anderen höher als sich selbst.“
Es heißt ja immer, es gäbe kein Geheimrezept für lebenslange Liebe. Halte ich übrigens für gelogen. Hier nämlich der Geheimtipp 1 💁🏽♀️😏🖤🖊👆🏻📖

📖 Familiar sayings originating from the Bible. 📖 When’s the last time that you got some good news? Or maybe it’s time some good news came your way. The good news about God’s good news is it’s still the best news you’ll ever hear. The Gospel is good news because that unbearable load of sin that’s been dragging behind each of us for too long has been dealt with on the cross of Calvary. Now that’s good news! #grateful#thankful#blessed “Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.” Proverbs 25:25
CRY OF THE PRODIGAL SON
KEY VERSE:* ”We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth how long” (PSALM 74:9). This Asaphite dirge is the typical lamentation of one who has abandoned his God and after suffering torment at the hands of his satanic master, seeks to return home to the Lord. The point here is that, it was not God that stayed away from His people but the wayward lifestyle of His people that kept them away from Him, exposing them to harm.
The psalmist acknowledges the sacking of Jerusalem, the defeat of Israel’s army, the attempt to annihilate any trace of God and reminds the Lord that the children of Israel are still His people. After recalling the tragic aftermath of the enemy’s invasion, the writer goes on to remember the great accomplishments of the Almighty in the past. God had delivered them from centuries of Egyptian bondage; won countless battles for them; conquered nature on their behalf and had given them prophets and priests to guide them. He had served as their King and above all, He was the supreme Lord (verses 16,17). Just as the prodigal son never had true happiness when he left his father’s presence, all those who forsake the Lord always experience disappointment and grief, because it is only in the presence of God that we can find enduring joy. The world is going through difficult times because it has forsaken the laws of God and has embraced the ways and laws of the devil. Jesus taught that the prodigal son’s suffering ended upon his return to the father’s abode where he was received and restored.
God is expecting you, as a prodigal son or daughter, to return to Him now. He will heartily welcome you if you repent, confess your sins and ask for cleansing and promise to abide in Christ till the end. His promise to you is, “I will heal [your] backsliding, I will love [you] freely: for mine anger is turned away from [you]” (Hosea 14:4). *THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:* God is ready to hear the cry of the contrite sinner. *COVER TO COVER: GENESIS 12-15*
Mary Magdalene's Box of Very Precious Ointment - James Tissot - The honored woman who would stand by Christ’s cross, weep at his burial and be first to meet Jesus after his resurrection didn’t begin her life in pious discipleship. Although all is not known, we have in the gospel of Luke a tender interaction between Mary Magdalene and the Savior. As he feasts in the company of affluent men, she enters the room in tears, obviously a disturbance and offense to the host. While they scoff at her apparent waste of expensive ointment on the feet of Jesus, the Savior forgives her sins and teaches them a lesson: “Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.” (Luke 7:47) #jamestissot#forgiveness#love#charity#jesuschrist#christianart#art
