One Thousand Gifts and my daughters




"That which tears open our souls, those holes that splatter our sight, may actually become the thin, open places to see through the mess of this place to the heart-aching beauty beyond. To Him. To the God whom we endlessly crave."
I'm so excited to listen to this book on audible with my two oldest girls. I've listened to  just a few chapters but, WOW, what a blessing Ann's beautifully poetic and heart stirring words are already to me. Love being able to share this with Karis and Kimmi. Love that God provides Godly women, like Ann, to guide me towards a deeper walk with Jesus and also to help me guide my older girls too!!

If these two of  mine can grasp this at their young age that pain is used by God to help us see Him!! That pain, tragedy, disappointment and sadness is part of God's plan to fill up our "soul holes"!! ------Well, that would be a beautiful foundation for these two young women of mine. It really would be everything. Pain is not something I will ever seek, but I'm praying that I and my daughters can receive all the gifts that He has for us and be grateful for it all!!
Here's my pretty girlies!!

Romans 6:3-4 Or. do you not know that as many as were immersed into Christ Jesus were immersed into his death? 4 We were, therefore, buried with him by immersion into death; that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, thus we also should walk in newness of life.(The Better Version of The New Testament by Chester Estes)

Yes, water baptism is essential in order to be saved.

Not only has the church of Christ, [the body of Christ] been buried with Christ in baptism, but Christ sanctified, and cleansed His church with the washing of water. Ephesians 5:25-27.

Yes, men have to believe in Jesus and be baptized in water to be saved.
