Pinwheels & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sometimes we forget to appreciate that little things in life. Sunshine, lip color that lasts, wild daisies, a clean puppy...big or small, extraneous or necessary, they bring us joy. So today we celebrated our freedom by enjoying some of those littler things like pinwheels and chocolate chip cookies.

And sometimes it's the big things in life that truly make all the difference. At the end of the day I found myself singing the song It Is Well With My Soul and was struck by a line in the song: "That Christ has regarded my helpless estate, and hath shed His own blood for my soul." Praise God and hallelujah! I am no longer imprisoned by guilt and shame, my salvation was bought, in full, by Christ! There's nothing I have to do on my part, I am free! Glory to God!

Praise the Lord!! "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God, you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy." Recently I have been studying 1 Peter with some women from our church and I thought this passage in chapter 2 was such an incredible reminder of the mercy and grace of God. Praise His holy name that we can have such freedom in Him!! Thanks for sharing, Lydia!
