Open Hearts




"The world loves performance,
Jesus loves people -
just the way they are.

The world needs more people who are trusting and believing,
with a belief which is impacting -
intentional believing."


Words spoken by our gentle Pastor today as he shared more of John 3:16.
The daisies in our garden stretch towards the sunshine, as if with open hearts.




Sharing at Macro Monday.

An appropriate thought at this time of the Olympics Karen. It's a good attitude for us to have but how do our countrymen feel if our athletes don't win medals? - Dave

Pastor prawdę powiedział, a Ty jego słowa ozdobiłaś pięknym zdjęciem kwiatu. Pozdrawiam.

You've taken a stunning photo of the daisy. I love the light that is coming into the petals. Beautiful words, there certainly is a lack of trust these days. Strong belief is very powerful. Enjoy your Tuesday, I hope it's a happy one. x

Sensational shot!! I love that teaching by your pastor. We know some Christian parents that lamented recently that there isn't enough "intentional parenting" taking place today. Both statement have a lot of validity.
