The victory is won in Jesus and I am SO thankful tonight that I know Him.
There's not a soul in this world who has to live a defeated life, yet a great deal choose to do so. Oh, if only they knew that "Jesus saves, Jesus saves." (Priscilla J. Owens) I don't know about you, but I'm SO looking forward to life forever with Jesus, the perfect Savior.
This week I am thankful for:
- The good time we had with friends at open house #1. Open house #2 will be next month in Indiana. I don't like to entertain guests - I'm horrible at it. I spent far too much time worrying about this party than was necessary, as usual, and far too little time praying about it. God took care of everything anyway and all went very well.
- The rain and warmer weather. I am getting a few things harvested and other plants are beginning to grow again. We do have a problem with potato beetles, though. I am a stickler about not wanting to use chemicals on our garden so I may just have to let them run their course. We'll see.
- Praise the Lord for a tad bit over $100 above and beyond the money needed for Mombasa, Kenya! Our teens and adults heading over there next Wednesday needed a grand total of $52,000 and they raised something like $52,117. God is SO GOOD! Is this affirmation that they must go or what?
