About: Revelation 3:18~19

*Christ to the Laodiceans*

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

We read this tonight in devotions as a family.
(Actually, chapters one through three, but these two verses stuck out particularly to me :)
Aren't they encouraging?!

...A beautiful reassurance that...
~God's amazing Grace saved a wretch like me!~
~I was blind, but now I see!~
~Chastening of God's children = His Love for us!~

Speaking of God's love!
Isn't it amazing that Christ took the punishment for our sins?!
I'm amazed every time I think of it!

Ok, it's late y'all and I gotta take Liv to co-op tomorrow morning.

Till next time, I pray this (short and sweet)post blesses and encourages you :)

About: Asking for Prayer

Please be praying for one of our dear friend's 35 year old sister... She had a baby a few weeks back and now she's been admitted into the ICU with sepsis, congestive heart failure, and fluid in her lungs. Her name is Debbie Ventura and she has 2 teenage children.

Please be praying for her and her family during this difficult time. Thank you!
