Happy Friday! Woohoo! I am so looking forward to this weekend! Tomorrow, we pack up the Mama mini van and head off to the beautiful state of Tennessee to visit Hubby's parents. Y'all, my mother-in- love is the BEST cook! The boys and I have been putting in our orders for weeks now for some of our favorites (Fried okra is at the top of the list along with Munder's brownies!) I'll be posting again on Tuesday--hopefully, I'll have some fun pics to share!
Well, today is all about my precious little friend way...way...out in the Pacific Northwest! I would love to vacation there one day and actually meet her! Nichole (On Purpose) was the winner of the little canvas painting that I gave away on my 100th post! I had so much fun painting this for her! She told me that her favorite colors were red and black--I immediately thought of Georgia's football colors!(Once an SEC fan always an SEC fan!!) When I started painting, one of my boys referred to it as the ladybug canvas! It's red with black polka dots! Then, I added a funky zebra ribbon! I just love my zebra ribbon (I have found a pair of zebra shoes that I'm eyeing as well!!)
Nichole shared her life verse with me, and I painted it on the canvas. I had read it before, but when I took the time to painstakingly paint one letter at the time, God shed a new light on it! I love how He works!!
And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. 2 Cor. 5:15
Y'all, this is powerful! He made the ultimate sacrifice for all of us--sinners that we are even when we try to be good! We are to live for HIM. Put yourself in His place. Think about this...How would Jesus handle a job loss? What would Jesus say about that couple considering divorce? How would He respond to a family situation that's gotten out of control? This is it people! We as Christians are the temple in which He resides. There is no longer the temple that was built for the Lord by King Solomon. No longer is there a temple where a curtain separated the Holy of Holies from the rest of the sanctuary. That physical curtain was ripped from top to bottom on the day of the Crucifixion! We now have the Holy Spirit within us and are to live as Christ did! That's what this verse is all about! Nichole, this verse is awesome! I am so thankful that you blessed us all with it, sweet friend!
As you enjoy the weekend, remember this verse! I also encourage you and challenge you to pray and explore the Bible to see if your life verse has been given to you yet! If not, pray and ask God to reveal it to you!! I am!! I would LOVE to hear your life verse if you already know it!! Please share with us!!
