A Love Affair




"Let your religion be less of a theory and more
of a love affair."

Her hills and her valleys are calling to me.
Though born here in this land, my heart is in Ireland."

Trust is our gift back to God



☼    Midwinter Sunflowers    


"The splendor of a human heart that trusts it is loved unconditionally,
gives God more pleasure than Westminster Cathedral, the Sistine Chapel,
Beethoven’s "Ninth Symphony", Van Gogh’s "Sunflowers",
the sight of 10,000 butterflies in flight, or the scent of a million orchids in bloom.
Trust is our gift back to God,
and he finds it so enchanting that Jesus died for love of it."
~Brennan Manning

All the way


2013

All the way my Savior leads me
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His faithful mercies?
Who through life has been my guide
Heavenly peace, divinest comfort
Here by faith in Him to dwell
For I know whatever fall me
Jesus doeth all things well
~Fanny J. Crosby

Capacity for beer



"When I get honest, I admit I am a bundle of paradoxes.
I believe and I doubt,
I hope and get discouraged, I love and I hate,
I feel bad about feeling good,
I feel guilty about not feeling guilty. I am trusting and suspicious.
I am honest and I still play games.
Aristotle said I am a rational animal;
I say I am an angel with an incredible capacity for beer."
~Brennan Manning

Three things that will remain ( Joyful 2016 )



2015  2016 --- Blíjf geloven, blíjf hopen, en blíjf liefhebben.
Want ons resten geloof, hoop en liefde; maar de grootste daarvan is de liefde.
(1 Kor. 13:13)




"If you try to have faith, you will be attacked by doubts you never knew you were capable of.
But you keep on believing, even if you fall, even if you struggle with doubts, you keep on believing.

And if you live a life that is marked by hope, by the belief that God is good, and there is goodness in the world that awaits us, you'll be disappointed. You'll be crushed, even, sometimes.
But you keep on hoping.

And if you choose to love, you will be misunderstood, you will be betrayed, you will be rejected by the people who most desperately need the love you have to offer.
We are blemished people, and in order to love anybody,
in any way, we have to expose that part of us that we'd rather keep hidden.
Our own selfishness, our own fears, our own hangups, and it's embarrassing. So humiliating.
But you keep on loving.

Many of us are obsessed with becoming rich, many of us are obsessed with becoming smart.
But all of our wisdom, all of our great insights; we see in part and we prophesy in part..
But when that which is perfect comes, that which is in part is done away with.
But There are three things that will remain: faith, and hope, and love.
Make sure you live in those."
―Rich Mullins
