looking back, looking forward

looking back on 2008 it was a great year for me… God blessed me in so many ways… His hand was evident in His action and in His allowance… I have truly experienced Peace from Grace this year… may we all experience Peace from Grace in 2009, may each of us seek to tell His story when we can, may ears be willing to hear, may hearts be ready to resppond… may each of us seek to be His means of Grace and mercy to a world that is broken and in need of His touch…

Happy New Year!

William Tyndale

It was very interesting that The Economist would write an article about the great translator of the English New Testament, William Tyndale. If you have never heard the story of the man who was most responsible for giving English speakers the New Testament in thier own language. Well, actually, I have a copy of Tyndale’s translation and that several hundred year old English is not an easy read, nonetheless, click here to read.

On Christmas, remember:

that presents are less important than the people around you and

to call those who are distant and will be glad to hear from you and

that your presence with people is more important than stuff and

that the greatest gift you can receive is love and

to pause and look at the baby in your nativity scene and

that He was the greatest gift that you can receive and 

that the peace you have is a picture of the great peace He wants to give you and

that the Peace He brings through Grace is free indeed and 

that I wish you a very merry Christmas.

A year ago today, Sweet Anna and I got on a plane to join the girls for Christmas in Paris. To remember that great trip, I chose this pic to post as my blog Christmas card to you. Remember that Grace began at Christmas, Peace comes from Grace, Merry Christmas!
