Three Gifts Found in His Word:

#408  "Words of power, strong to save, that will never pass away...I will stand on every promise of Your Word."  --Keith Getty

----------------------------

#409  "Then Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal robes of blue and white, with a great golden crown and a robe of fine linen and purple, and the city of Susa shouted and rejoiced. The Jews had light and gladness and joy and honor. And in every province and in every city, wherever the king's command and his edict reached, there was gladness and joy among the Jews, a feast and a holiday. And many from the peoples of the country declared themselves Jews, for fear of the Jews had fallen on them."

Esther 8:15-17

-------------------------

#410  "The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; 
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning; 
great is your faithfulness.
'The LORD is my portion,' says my soul,
'therefore I will hope in him.'"

Lamentations 3:22-24

  1. Gift #411 made me gasp out loud, then brought tears to my eyes.

    Gift #413...I was going to tell you about this book. I read it to myself and then to my kids just last month. The hope of heaven...of seeing our little ones there...so thankful!

    Love you sweet friend!
