Still pondering the wondrous promises of God. Wanting to always treasure these things and ponder them in my heart. Like Mary. Hungry to be hungry.

Hail thou ever blessed morn
Hail redemptions happy dawn
Sing through all Jerusalem

Jesus birth, the promise of salvation, of redemption beginning to be fulfilled. Hoozah.

"No one has properly apprehended God's grace until he has understood his own sinfulness and knows that he fully deserves God's just and holy punishment. The evangelical church of our day is a wrathless church--a church that speaks often of God's love and grace, but rarely of the deepest necessity of this love and grace. The church today needs an infusion of the gospel, the whole gospel, which speaks not only of God's love, but first of our desperate need of reconciliation. The gospel paints us as we really are--as sinners who sin because of our fundamental guilt, our fundamental hatred of God. Only when we see ourselves as sinners can we truly see Christ as Savior." (see ed g's blog)

3 hour 121 with anna mac. Pretty much talking about the wrath, jealousy and awe of God for the whole time. How understanding the wrath of God makes my sin more abhorent and hhis grace love and mercy so much more beautiful. The gosepl rocks my socks. When we learn to truly fear God in all his character, not leaving out anything and actually loving the 'unlikeable' parts of God stops me fearing man, possessions and decisions. Nothing can harm.

Buying mistle toe and having two kisses already :)

One of Debbie's friends coming for dinner and discovering a kindred, straight talking, spirit!

Two ways of looking at today:
1. Rubbish day. so exhausted, miserable and noone to look after me and see if i was ok
2. Sundays...finally a day to rest and be in bed. All day. The beauty of a day of rest.

I think the 2nd way of looking at it is much more 365-esque. :)

A big bunch of flowers in the hands of a lady at my door from the wonderful pod bhogal. just when i needed cheering up most. :)

Another friend coming to the lunchbar...

Me: "Have you been thinking about what we chatted about last time?" (gospel)
Her: "I've been thinking about it so much ive been going round and round in circles and got depressed."
Me: "I guess it's important we figure out what all the point of this is." (etc etc etc)
Her: "Yeah, can I take this?" (Life gospel)
Me:"Wanna meet up next week and chat about it?"
Her:"Yeah, you free on Monday...I might not have read it all by then."
Me:"Absoutely...thats cool...we'lll chat about what you have read. cooler moments than these.
