:: Snapshots from Life ::


Life.

Much time would be required to accurately describe all that simple word entails for us.  Day after day passes by, often without us realizing their speed.  And the little, and often seemingly insignificant, moments of those days compose the whole of our life story.  How we give, serve, forgive, pray, learn, love in each moment impacts ETERNITY!  In every "little" moment, our awesome God is present, observing all; providing grace to live them in light of eternity!  To truly live the meaningful life--a life all about God; entirely for his praise!  He remains loving, sovereign, and trustworthy no matter what.  What a comfort and JOY to rest in His promises, living every moment with Him!  

These {dozens of} snapshots have remained in drafts for a while--they span from March to mid-May. They capture so many wonderful moments!

"For of him, and through him, and to him, are ALL things:
 to whom be glory for ever. Amen." 
{Romans 11:36}
