Well, where do I start?
I’ve just arrived home from a delightful classical orchestral concert that a two of my friends sisters played in. It was just delightful. I’ve had the last week off and shall be back to work on Friday (too soon!) but I’m just loving the holiday… I’m about to hit the sack so I’ll post this gorgeous little piece from Sarah Nicole’s blog.

The Christian life is the better life —
No, the Christian life is the best.
It gives you Someone to hold on to,
The only One Who can give you rest.
The Christian life is the only life
That gives you the strength to go on —
Someone in front, leading the way,
Gently guiding ‘till your battle is won.
The Christian life is full of hope,
And when life is over on earth,
The Christian life was designed to go on
Forever – the reward for earthly rebirth.
The Christian life offers atonement for sins.
There’s nothing else a Christian need do
Than confess in his heart and sincerely repent
Of his sins, and to just follow through.
The Christian life requires much,
But I hear the others ask more,
And our Creator loves us no matter what,
Even if you fall in your faith and
temporarily close the door.
The reason for this is the Christian life
Never does desert it’s own,
God’s word is written right on our hearts,
And He welcomes you at the foot of His throne.
In other words, if you need to talk
The Spirit of God hears you day and night,
His Spirit becomes part of your soul
The moment you step into His Light.
The days are getting a little warmer, the sun shines a little brighter and the roses are budding beautifully… Summers coming…
It almost seems as if summer has come to the world of blogging too. Fellow bloggers are producing some magnificent post hence I feel a need to not just add links to my post but create a seperate post for that. So we shall be adding a little feature called ‘Link roundup’ for the purpose of sharing encouraging, fun and interesting posts found through the week. If you’ve written a post that you’d like me to add, please contact me by leaving a comment or emailing me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I am more than happy to consider adding you to the list!
I hope each one of you are having a lovely week. Stay close to the Lord may he ever be your guide and stay!
