Oh To Grace, How Great a Debtor!!

 If it were not for Grace, then I would not care that this duck was created by God.. I would not have been given eyes to wonder upon this beautiful creature that walks aimlessly around Zaxby’s parking lot looking for food God has provided for the day…… I would not wonder how God knew that a green/turquoise head would be beautiful above orange feet. . . God knew that it would beautiful……

IMG_3907 If It were not because of Grace I wouldn’t thank God for the rain that created this fog…..

and how the green grass is barely visible because the thickness of it……

And how he chose that it would make this white church steeple look so beautiful in a random town one hour away…… he created this scene and enjoys it, even if I would have been here at this exact moment in time to take pleasure in it myself…… God knew that it would be beautiful………….IMG_3910 God also poured so rich of grace upon me that the simple sight of this cross would stop me in my tracks and allow me a moment to think about what this means…… God knew that this cross would be beautiful……..IMG_3917  

God so rich and trustworthy poured enough Grace upon these servants to faithfully lead us Sunday after Sunday…. diligent in prayer, and leadership… God knew that this church body would be beautiful…..

IMG_3931 IMG_3932 God poured rich grace upon Jeff to have eyes that see and a heart to believe… and then come forth in baptism to publicly profess his faith in Jesus Christ. What a glorious day!

God knew that this would be beautiful…….

So beautiful that it brought this strong pastor of ours to tears…… that is how beautiful……..

And God.. so rich in grace has set these people apart to serve, worship, praise, struggle, and of course, eat together in his name alone….

He has given us grace to befriend, help, mentor, guide, and lead each other to himself daily…………

…to laugh and talk together…….

IMG_3957  To share the gospel with others………IMG_3959 and to  parent effectively………….IMG_3965 

God KNEW that would be beautiful……..

and it all is………….

I love that one of Billy and the family he's talking with. It really captures what he's all about, all the time. Great image!
