And so it begins...

And so it begins!
This long-awaited, much anticipated blog that will hold my pictures, my thoughts, my words, my dreams, my sorrows, my world, my life, and a deep sense of love for the Lord Jesus Christ. I am excited! I have prayed for this blog, prayed that it would be glorifying to Him in what goes on here. Because He is the One I want to glorify. Not me. Never me.
"For every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of Lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. So, then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God." ~ James 1:17-20 (NKJV)
That's what I want this blog to be, that's what I want to be: Swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to grow angry, because I so desire to become righteous in God's will for me! I hope and pray that all those who read this blog will be blessed in some way, whether it be a smile, a tear, a Godly thought, I pray that it will bring glory to God and joy to YOU!
And so it begins! "All glory, laud and honor, to Thee, Redeemer King!".
In Christ's mercies,
Jean Marie
