Something Better...

Today I read in Hebrews 11… the “faith chapter”… all these great men and women of the Old Testament that lived and died by their faith. I saw something new in this chapter that I know I have read but never really “saw”… in verse 39 and 40 – “And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise, God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.” They had faith that could move mountains, so to speak, but they, these heroes and heroines of the Bible, didn’t get to live to see the Promised One come. We live in the day of grace… how thankful I am for that... if I had to live under the Law (check out Leviticus)… I just don’t know if I would have made it… sacrificing animals and all the other stuff. Praise God that He made a way that was better for us through the ultimate sacrifice of His precious Son… once and for all... and I am walking in that Truth today.

I have a wedding card to share today... it was done with window sheet sent through the Cuttlebug for embossing.  It was hard to get a picture because of the glare, but this gives you the idea.  The finishing touches were the half pearls and of course an embossed butterfly from SU embosslet.
It is a hot humid day again here in northern Michigan, so we are having something simple for supper, but I better get that going.  Thanks for stopping... sorry it has been so long since I have stopped in!  *Ü*
with a grateFUL HEART, carin

Praise God is right! Reading the old testament gives a new light on what Jesus saved us from! =)
