Stockxpertcom_id541912_size1_2Yesterday the Mahaney clan caravanned home from Dandridge,Tennessee where we had two delightful weeks together adding many fun and special memories to our family storybook which we will peruse and savor for years to come.谢谢您,Scott and Lesa Baker,Bill and Cheri Kittrell andCornerstone Church of Knoxville为了你对我们的厚爱,再一次!!

As a way to prepare us not only to enjoy and be grateful for our vacation,but to also perceive the character of God revealed through this gift of pleasure,我丈夫读了下面的C。年代。Lewis quote to our family at dinner新利18luckIM电竞牛time on the very first day:

"Pleasures are shafts of glory as it strikes our sensibility….I have tried…to make every pleasure into a channel of adoration.I don't mean simply by giving thanks for it.One must of course give thanks,但我的意思不同……感激的感叹,非常恰当地‘How good of God to give me this.' Adoration says,‘What must be the quality of that Being whose far-off and momentary coruscations are like this!“一个人的思想会回到阳光下……如果这是Hedonism,,it is also a somewhat arduous discipline.但这值得付出一些努力。”(如,当我不渴望上帝的时候,John Piper)

先生的这些有见地的话。Lewis helped us to understand the distinction between gratefulness and adoration and inspired each of us to try to make our summer vacation into"a channel of adoration.""

Now today – the day after vacation – as I unpack suitcases,洗一大堆衣服,去杂货店补充冰箱,我想让我work成“a channel of adoration"…although I must admit the discipline is a little more difficult,but nonetheless,正确和合适。Thus my prayer today:Heavenly Father,帮助我爱你,不仅是为了快乐的礼物,也是为了工作的礼物。


Present with the Lord

迈克哈达维斯2This morning,we learned that three-year-old Micah Davis went home to be with the Lord.你可能记得Micah's mom,Kriscindawho boldly expressed her faith in Godas her son battled cancer.

Our hearts grieve with Luke and Kriscinda and their entire family.In our grief,we also rejoice that your"小人物is now free from pain and suffering and stands in the presence of our Lord.

在漫长的审判过程中,we have been provoked by the Davis' active trust in God.路加和克丽辛达已经开放了他们的生活,追求来自当地教会信徒社区的恩典和安慰。因此,他们鼓励我们所有人在圣约生命教会把我们的信仰放在我们爱的救世主身上,因为我们在自己的生活中面临考验。



"“死亡被胜利吞没。”“哦,死亡,where is your victory?' ‘O death,你的刺在哪里?' Thanks be to God,他借着耶稣基督使我们得胜。1 Corinthians 15:54-57
