Inner Fulness...

Finally got our Christmas tree down yesterday... it is artificial so there is never a hurry... plus I really don't like taking it down. I still have a few decorations up... like a small snowflake tree and the lighted garland on the mantel... can't do it all at once now can I???

My hubby also finally unplugged the outside lights but before he did I just had to take a picture of our front door... I thought it looked so pretty... if I do say so myself. And it is kind of "crafty"... I cut the numbers on the door out of vinyl with my Cricut. A friend of mine sent me a picture off the internet of putting numbers on the door like this, so of course I had to do it. I did cut out numbers for her door too, but I am not sure if she has even put them on her door yet.


I got some sad news yesterday... someone that was a part of my life years ago passed away... he was someone that had a great impact on me... both good and bad. Good in that what I went through with this person helped to make me the person I am... but bad because this relationship gave me a lot of baggage I had to work through... all was forgiven years ago... I live with no regrets... I am truly sorry for his family and their loss.

During our church-wide fast we are reading a chapter of Ephesians everyday and today I chose chapter 3... prayer for inner fulness and knowledge... aren't these life changing words?...

"that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen". - Ephesians 3:17=21
 
with a grateFUL HEART, carin
