Sunday Reflections

(Be sure to click on this photo to see it enlarged.)
Although we’re still far from tulips and daffodils here in the Keweenaw, I just love this time of year. There’s still plenty of snow on the ground, but we’re enjoying a lot more sunshine. That sunshine makes the snow sparkle and spreads lovely shadows upon it, and I find myself gazing out at those shadows many times every day as they move across the yard.

We’ve been listening to some teaching on Psalm 119 lately. The Lord inspired David to record so much truth for us there. The verse I used for my photo today, verse 160, reminds us again of the truth of God and the truth of His Word.

From the opening verse of Genesis:

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

To the last 2 verses of Revelation:

He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly.
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

We can believe God and we can believe God’s Word. He makes no mistakes, has no regrets, makes no errors in judgment, and is plenteous in mercy. He has no beginning and no ending. He is from everlasting to everlasting. Amen!

All is well in the Keweenaw.

Sunday Reflections

I can't let this day pass without including happy birthday wishes to 2 of my favorite people:
  1. My Aunt Edie - the world's best aunt.
  2. My Little Brother - pictured below. He's no longer that little and his drawers are no longer that baggy. 

All is well in the Keweenaw.

Sunday Reflections

In Paul’s letter to the believers at Ephesus penned through the inspiration
of God while in prison, he begins by reminding them of the precious gift of
salvation they’ve received through Jesus Christ. It’s not a gift to be taken
lightly, as he instructs them to live in such a way that they

should be to the praise of His glory.

Paul’s epistle gives specific examples of what to do and what not to do
in order to live an exemplary life as a follower of Christ – and he continues
to reiterate what they’ve been given.

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.

Because they know the Lord, Paul implores them to

walk worthy

of Him. They were to

put off the old man


put on the new man.

Their lives were to be different in every area – in speech, behavior, actions,
emotions, and motives. Doesn’t Ephesians 5:8 sum it all up?

Walk as children of light.

What would happen if believers always walked as children of light?
What would happen if I always walked as a child of light?

All is well in the Keweenaw.
