Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

From my journal; I am justified

A post from my journal dated 6/21/06...

Romans 8:33   Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect. It is God that justifieth.

In the light of this New Covenant promise; could an Old Testament Job-type incident occur again? (One where Satan comes before God and accuses Job of only serving God for his favor.) I don't believe that Satan will ever again be permitted to come before the presence of God and accuse the brethren...for according to Romans 8; God himself justifies us. How could such a nefarious scoundrel ever be allowed to stand before Jesus Christ...He who has nail-scars in his hands and feet that were suffered for us?Never for a moment think that your experience is anything at all comparable to Job's. You have a way-better covenant.
