God is love.

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them….

There is no fear in love.

But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.

The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

~John 4: 16-18~

“Elijah was a man with a nature like ours,

and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain;

and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months.

And he prayed again,

and the heaven gave rain,

and the earth produced its fruit.”

~James 5:17-18~

Isn’t it wonderful to be able to pray and then wait to see how God chooses to answer?

Peggy Alford is home and learning more and more each day how to use that new knee.  Knowing Peggy, she’s making progress faster than most people.

Be a blessing to someone today!

Easter

Though he was God,

did not demand and cling to his rights as God,

but laid aside his mighty power and glory,

taking the disguise of a slave and becoming like men.”
