New Life. New Me





This week's challenge: 
Since spring is now here and signs of new life are happening all around us we want to see creations symbolizing new life…this can be Easter, new baby, budding trees, flowers…..etc.

I love to share about my new life.
Since Jesus became my Lord in the spring of 1999, my world changed.



There's still black and white,




good and evil,


happiness and sorrow.



 HOWEVER,



see the rainbow path?



Jesus fills my heart and my future with purpose, meaning and direction.


The beautiful color He paints in my little world has given me hope.


Because I know Him and I KNOW He knows Me and loves me...

I can live!


I used to worry about the legacy I would leave my girlies (back when I only had 2 and they were wittle,wittle).

Was what I offered enough?

Would they have enough joy?

Enough wisdom?

Enough knowledge?

Enough LOVE?



After Jesus saved me...


I no longer worried.


He is more than enough for me to share with them...


and you.


His sacrifice on the cross is everything.
Because of His death on the cross,


and my acceptance of His awesome gift...
I LIVE!
I'm free.
There is color in my world.
Every day IS a new beginning.
May you have a blessed Easter.
