My musings about this wonderful existence I lovinly call "my experimental life". I try to follow the direction of the Holy Spirit, but I sometimes end up in a conundrum, wondering how I got there and how I'm gonna get out. So, you will learn of my experiments in getting it right. I hope it is entertaining, inspiring, and, most of all, a witness to the precious mercies of a loving and forgiving Heavenly Father who lets me learn as I go.

"The grass withers and the flower fades......"
13 So think clearly and exercise self-control.
Look forward to the gracious salvation
that will come to you
when Jesus Christ
is revealed to the world.
14 So you must live as God’s obedient children.
Don’t slip back into your old ways of living
to satisfy your own desires.
You didn’t know any better then.....
23 For you have been born again,
but not to a life that will quickly end.
Your new life will last forever
because it comes from
the eternal, living word of God.
24 As the Scriptures say,
“People are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades. 25 But the word of the Lord remains forever.”
