I am both blessed and humbled by any and all opportunities to be the Lord’s apprentice! It saddens me though when some fear they must be worthy, and it really breaks my heart to meet those eager to profess to be His replacement. . . thank you, Lord, for your unmerited favor!

One cannot measure the goodness of our God!

. . . because life was not meant to be just black and white!
Our individuality was meant for blessing, not distressing!

All too often I find this word to be avoided, to be considered negative, to be considered “here comes trouble!” My response to this truth was “here comes another positive word gone NEGATIVE, what a pity!”
I looked acceptance up in the dictionary and found that a primary defining word was “favor.” WOW!
The following blessing has been bestowed upon me many times, and I quote it from the BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER:
“The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord’s face shine on you with grace and mercy.
The Lord look upon you with favor
and give you peace. AMEN“
My friends, acceptance is a REALLY BIG DEAL and I am sorry to say we as a culture are not very good at it. We need to do better!

I am one who does not run from a challenge but . . .
NO! Dear readers, I intend, or HOPE, instead to encourage and bless! My sometimes failure to do so reveals the truth that God is not finished with me yet!
