Being Real and the Parade Continues

Good morning!

As I went through my morning routine this morning, there was something that stuck with me.

Luke 23:39-43 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.  But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Doest not thou fear God, seeing thou are in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we receive due reward of our deeds; but this man hat done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into they kingdom.  And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Grace is giving something when it is not deserved.   As I read scripture this morning, I began thinking of the whole crucifixion scene.  All those who were pious, righteous and good people were mocking the Lord Jesus Christ and yet a man who was not versed in “religion” knew who Jesus truly was.  

I use to be the person who knew the “rules of religion”, played the part well.  So well, I had others convinced I truly believed all I said and did.  

Well, I was outwardly talking and doing all the right things, but talking and doing the right things doesn’t make it right.  You know?  

It’s not about what I can do or what I do, it all about what Jesus Christ did.  He died for the sins of everyone on this earth.

It’s about being “real” with your relationship with Christ, and not about being “good”.

The Quilt Parade Continues…

Have a great day!
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
