It was for you, He died...

"We are not saved from sin by trusting in anything we have done. The only means of eternal salvation is through placing our trust in what Jesus did for us on the cross, when He died in our place."


"Through Jesus' sinless life, His death on Calvary as the sinner's substitute, and His victorious resurrection, we can be fully forgiven for all our sin, we can be reconciled to the God we have offended, and we can have the power to live holy lives."

~Nancy Leigh DeMoss

“Sin, a little thing? It girded the Redeemer's head with thorns, and pierced His heart! It made Him suffer anguish, bitterness, and woe. Could you weigh the least sin in the scales of eternity, you would fly from it as from a serpent, and abhor the least appearance of evil. Look upon all sin as that which crucified the Saviour, and you will see it to be "exceeding sinful."
~Charles H. Spurgeon

Okay, okay....

No...I haven't forgotten about my little blog! (Although, I certainly have my moments!) Hopefully I can get something posted here within these next couple of weeks.

I do have some some piece of news to share, though. Our family is moving! We came across another rental located out in the country about 25 minutes from our current residence. We will not have actual possession until May 1st, but we have already begun the task of packing. (Fun-fun!)

The living room carpet has been somewhat singed, so the owner has agreed to replace that before we move in, as well as cleaning up the house.

One of the many nice features about our new home is that, even though it's a rental, we have been allowed to paint it any color we want! Nothing like personalizing your space, right? Right now I'm trying to figure out what color I will choose for my bedroom. It's a toss between brown or red! Any suggestions? The two main colors which I currently have in my room are reds & golds. But, I also have some black tables/decor and also dark, colored wood.

Stay tuned!!
