Sunday Morning

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:1-2

Hi Kimba! Hope your Christmas was wonderful and you are getting to spend some good family time with your loved ones. What a year it has been! Im looking forward to the new year soon. Are you going to Blog conf. in Feb.? I would love to go but would have to jump through a few hoops to get there. It sounds like a ton of fun~

Thank you...I needed this Scripture today. For the past 2 days I've been bogged down with circumstances that have allowed me to become discouraged and ready to throw up my hands. I have to put those aside and continue the race that is before me. Thank you again.

Merry late Christmas!

Just did my first real post- Christmas post too! Nice to be back.

Relatives are almost all gone and the real greenery that I stuffed into my garland is wilting and begging to go to the compost pile. I'm planning on a week of cleaning (lazily) while the man can still haul items to the garage.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday. And... Happy New Year!

This is one of my favorites! To know that all those witnesses - our heavenly family - are cheering us on to win the race and keep our eyes fixed on what is important is so encouraging to me!! I think of this scripture often, and it always gives me a little lift! Thanks!
