I recently came upon a blog in which listed 99 ways to save a life. I thought it was quite inspiring. I looked down through each one to see if I could see myself in all of these. I don’t know if I am emotional today or if it is just the glory of God overflowing from last night’s service. I sit here staring out my window looking at the rain and a gloomy day listening to music about turning to God for His mercy and grace. I find it hard not to let the tears flow down my cheeks and I smile. I think it is a beautiful day regardless of the circumstances that may go on around me today. God is still God through all of life. I am thankful. He loved us first so we could love Him back and loves others.
