Joy Dare ~ Week 16

Eucharisteo is how Jesus shows us how to fully live – take all as grace, give thanks for all and all transforms into joy. EUCHARISTEO!”


THREE HARD Eucharisteos
235. One causing me to pray that tough love will awaken him.
236. One helping me to understand that the Lord may have a different path for each of us and we must trust Him to guide those we love and give grace.
237. One causing me to cling to promise that He is faithful and will complete what He starts in us.

       and how wonderful it was to see this month….

238. ….That a hard eucharisteo from a few months back turned out to be perfect timing for all of us. Solio deo Gloria!
239. Thankful for sweet baby smiles to wake up to in my email inbox

and videos capturing the newborn sounds she makes and the way her cheek curves when a smile lights up her face.

240. For the encouragement of my knitting buddies to get some lingering projects finished this month.

knitting peer pressure can be a good thing!

3 GIFTS SQUARE
282. Knitting triangles into squares and enjoying every stitch.
283. Three square meals a day when so many in the world are hungry.
284. Finding a needed T-Square I used in college.

285. A gift stilled – the fear of death.
Like the boat tossed on a stormy sea that came immediately to land when Jesus said, ‘Peace, be STILL’ so my heart is stilled when I think of death.

I am confident that there is not a long period intervening between the instant of death and the eternity of glory. When that appointed time comes and my eyes close on this earth, they will open in heaven. Absent from the body, present with the Lord.

286. Stashed – hand knit socks in a drawer, one drawer of many.

       ………… for a girl never knows when her toes might be cold.

287. Stacked – commandments in the book of Joshua stacked one upon another –
To love the Lord your God
To walk in all his ways
To keep his commandments
To cling to him and

To serve him with all your heart and soul

Living Coram Deo

293. Thankful that Denver is only a couple hours away and we have those special times together.

294. And always, always thankful for The Word of God.

“All flesh is like grass

and all its glory like the flower of grass.

The grass withers,

and the flower falls,

but the word of the Lord remains forever.”  (1 Peter 1:23-24)

Joining in the multitude of others on the journey to joy, four months in and marveling –
