Inside or Outside

I love old barns. For me, each broken and tattered structure embodies strength and character. I am also reminded of the old saying, "you can't judge a book by it's cover." Often, we judge others by what we see. This is not a good plan. God created each of us with a purpose. Let's be found faithfully looking past the ruff and broken exterior of others lives. Instead, lets look into the hearts of those along the path of  this difficult and challenging life.

Jesus loved Judas even though He knew he would betray Him. WOW! As we celebrate this Easter season with our family and friends, lets embrace Jesus unfathomable love and rejoice in the love and acceptance only He can provide.

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Andrea Bowling Perdue

"Only He can provide"...yes!
His forgiveness and love must truly be ours to behold should we choose to walk with Him. And we do!

Thanks, Andrea. A special time in our life as Christians, recalling His death on the cross for us, forgiving our sins, and then...His Resurrection. Amen!

Caring through Christ, ~ linda

Wishing you a blessed Easter Sunday! May your day be full of Resurrection JOY!

"He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said." (Matthew 28:6)

He is Risen! He is Risen indeed!

Celebrating with you the promise of eternal life - thanks the One who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!

Isn't it amazing how some of the old barns still stand when they've been so weathered? I like your challenge to love other weathered people the way Jesus does!

Thank you for prayers! You have mine as well.
