Jesus Smiles.

I wonder if Jesus doesn't muster up a slight smile
as he see's his lost ship come straggling into the fold, the beaten, broken,
dirty sheep who stands at the door looking
up at the Shepherd asking,
"Can I come in? I dont deserve it, but.....?"
The Shepherd looks down at the sheep and says,
"Come in, this is your home."
Salvation is the process that's done...
That no one can take away from you.
Sanctification is the lifelong process of...
growing in Christ..

You have begun to live the new life,
in which you are being made new
and are becoming like the ONE who
made you..
Collossians 3:10

Oh Karen, the photo is LOVELY!!! And too funny, I was just writing a post for Aug. 23rd (guest writer) and I was touching on the subject of us approaching the throne of God -- even with our sin nature.

I am thankful for my salvation!

Bless you today!

You know I am sure They are always kind of chuckling when They see us coming back heads down, because They are just so happy that we did come back!
