this morning

I woke up this morning with a song in my heart...one we sang in E. Asia just a few weeks ago, and had sung fairly often when Caitlin was leading worship with us in Cassville...don't know if the Christian Community family knows it or not, but I was singing it none the less....

The Lord is gracious and compassionate
Slow to anger, rich in love
The Lord is gracious and compassionate
Slow to anger, rich in love

As far as the east is from the west
That's how far He has removed our transgressions from us
As far as the east is from the west

Praise the Lord, oh my soul, praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, oh my soul, praise the Lord!

There's a lot on my plate today, but it will be done in a prayerful way, and with a spirit of worship....
It was a long time ago, but I had heard in an interview with Rich Mullins once that he viewed "spiritual acts of worship" in the little things we do day to day as much as the huge mountain top events....so some of the things that mattered and showed spiritual discipline to him were the simple things like the folding of clothes, washing of dishes, etc. That's how today will be for me. Quiet. Peaceful. Worship.

in His grace...

I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
