Looking forward to this week:
Getting back to Wednesday Bible Study and Thursday night Bible Study on Revelation
I cant believe that it has been 6 weeks since I last wrote on this topic and I wrote then a bout feeling poorly... and I just have gotten over my respiratory infection.. good to be back with the living

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Deep Calls to Deep is an amazing blog written from the spiritual heart and marvelous teachings on deep spiritual truths!!!
No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):
I love this time of year and planning special events..... so warm and cosy!
On my mind:
I am so thankful that I am learning more and more how to discern the will of God in my life, and seeing His hand and provision in every aspect of my life.. even as to the folks I meet online.... sometimes those folks whom I might speak truth into their lives in the hopes of directing them closer to the Lord Jesus, and those who speak volumes of truth into mine.. God's blessings all along the way of life... Im trying not to miss them.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Ephesians 2: 13-18

13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 15 by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, 16 and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. 17 He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit

This passage we studied in Sunday School yesterday speaking of our becoming one with God's people the Jews... and I am so enthralled with the completed work of the Jewish festivals through Jesus Christ and their implications for us today... fascinating study...
