Beautiful sunset last evening.

"Repent and be baptized,
every one of you, 
in the name of Jesus Christ
so that  your sins may be forgiven.
And you will recieve the gift 
of the Holy Spirit.

and for all who are far off-
for all whom the Lord our God will call.
Acts 2:38-39

Our latest snow fall. 
Not much, but enough to brighten everything up a bit! 

crocheted hat. 

His mercy extends to those who fear Him, 
from generation to generation.
He has performed might deeds with His arm;
He has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
He has brought rulers from their thrones
 but has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things
but has sent the rich away empty.
Luke 1:50-53

The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.
He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him,
the world did not recognize Him.
 He came to that which was His own,
 but His own did not receive Him. 
Yet to all who received Him,
 to those who believed in His name, 
He gave the right to become children of God. 
John 1:9-12

"Whoever wants to become great among you
 must be your servant, 
and whoever wants to be first
 must be slave of all.
 For even the Son of Man
did not come to be served, but to serve
and to give His life as a ransom for many."

Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails 
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
 and no cattle in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.
Habakkuk 3:17-18

"What shall we say the kingdom of heaven is like,
or what parable shall we use to describe it?
It is like a mustard seed,
which is the smallest seed you plant in the ground.
Yet, when planted, it grows and becomes 
the largest of all garden plants,
with such big branches 
that the birds of the air can perch in its shade."
Mark 4:30-32
