Emery, Hattie, and I finished reading in Joshua last night and moved on to Judges. I'd imagine the best known verse in the entire book of Joshua would have to be "As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD".....of course, Israel doesn't exactly hold to this over the generations, but I'm thankful for the LORD's mercies that are new every morning, and every morning we have a fresh opportunity to devote our lives wholly unto the Lord (again). Because, I like Israel, fall away again and again and again, and I have to cleave to the verse in Malachi (I think), "I Am the Lord, I change not, therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed." I'm thankful for an unchanging God, when I am SOOO changable.
Well, there you have it plain and raw. I am a sinner. Saved by the grace of God. A sinner and now and the author of a blog. So welcome. : )
I had a blog once before, in college, but for reasons I do not still remember, I deleted it. I'm excited for this fresh start. I'm excited to share tidbits from our somewhat mundane and often hilarious life in the Sayre family.
