What I found on my doorstep yesterday...

For you Facebookers....this is what I found on my doorstep yesterday. A very sweet friend surprised me and sent this handbag to me. Don't surprises from dear friends just brighten your day? It's called the "Betseyville handbag" and it says so on that little metal tag. No one will have to guess whose it is. :) Isn't it fun?

I love Jesus Christ

A clarification of what it means to love Jesus Christ from John Piper:

  • I admire Jesus Christ more than any other human or angelic being.
  • I enjoy his ways and his words more than I enjoy the ways and words of anyone else.
  • I want his approval more than I want the approval of anyone else.
  • I want to be with him more than I want to be with anyone else.
  • I feel more grateful to him for what he has done for me than I do to anyone else.
  • I trust his words more fully than I trust what anyone else says.
  • I am more glad in his exaltation than in the exaltation of anyone else, including me.

More Love to Thee oh Christ, more love to Thee...
