Tuesdays: We wake up to our cats...breaking down our bedroom door, pleading for their morning meal-pitifully I must say. Next is breakfast: french press coffee, fresh bread from the bread machine and maybe an egg and O.J. Cierra is on call for massage at the day spa she works at, so any given morning she may have a massage or two and sometimes nothing at all. The rest of the morning we find our selves either on the couch with a book, on our patio with a book, or in the armchair with our computer, often times working on different assignments or filling ourselves with inspiration from music and visual art. School starts at 12:30, which usually finds us rollin down the road with our car packed with housemates and others on our way to school, sometime after 12:00. We then get to experience the presence of God in worship for about an hour followed by teaching from 1 or 2 people and then we all split off to different Bible classes for the last part of the day. One of the best part of any given day is the evening meal, which we usually all eat together, enjoying some sort of fusion dutch/americana recipe contrived by our head chef Rianne. Confession...we are such homebodies! Evenings are a time to talk over a glass of wine and process the day or perhaps worship more, or pray, or just lay on the floor and enjoy whatever Holy Spirit wants to do. Then, slob lecher (spelling??). Goodnight in Dutch.
A somewhat deep thought: What saves us? Faith in Jesus? I used to think so. Don't get me wrong, Jesus is the ONLY way to the Father and salvation is only through what He has done on the cross, however, there is something interesting to look at here.
Faith in Jesus does not save us. It is the grace of God that saves us.
|Eph 2:8||For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,|
We love you.
