Therefore, since we have been justified through faith,
we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom we have gained access by faith
into this grace in which we now stand.

damp daff

My newest, requested project!
It's been a while since I have tackled a large
counted cross-stitch picture! But I have been
asked to do this, and I am really looking forward to it!
However, I must finish the knitted baby set first!

Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.
Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him
Romans 4:7-8 (Ps. 32:1-2)

Morning coffee.

my daughter gave me this yarn that she bought
at a garage sale last summer!
This will make some wonderful hats
on the looms!!

The righteousness from God
comes through faith in Jesus Christ
to all who believe.

There is no difference,
for all have sinned
and fall short of the glory of God,

and are justified freely
by His grace through the redemption
that came by Christ Jesus.

Romans 3:22-24

I got to sit outside and do some knitting yesterday!
I love summer!

then I had to put it down so I could go in and
make supper!
Maybe tonight we will have supper on the grill and
I can stay outside!

For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight,
but those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.
Romans 2:13

I have been asked to knit another baby set.
Just like the set I did a couple months ago.
However, I couldn't find the same yarn.
So this is what I got for this set.
It's not the same at all, but it is very lovely!

blue on blue!
(the reason for the name 'Blue Acre Farm!')

God "will give to each person according to what he has done"
so those who by persistence in doing good
seek glory, honor and immorality,

He will give eternal life.
But for those who are self-seeking
and who reject the truth and follow evil,

there will be wrath and anger.
Romans 2:6-8

You, therefore, have no excuse,
you who pass judgment on someone else,
for at whatever point you judge the other,
you are condemning yourself,
because you who pass judgment do the same things.

and everything else."
