Discovering cRaZy jOY: Oct. 26-28

“From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another.” John 1:16

Still counting gifts, from the fullness of His grace…

Friday: three gifts extravagant

1. the great love our Father has lavished upon us (1 John 3:1)

2. a steamy cup full of hot chocolate and Creme de Menthe topped with whipped cream

3. a house full of dear friends smiling and encouraging each other’s efforts in Scripture memory

Saturday: a gift humbling, honoring, happy

1. humbling: the full cup of chicken parmesan soup emptied onto the lap of my youngest daughter

2. honoring: a vase full of flowers honoring the memory of my mama, who died 20 years ago

3. happy: the husband happily laboring over a slow cooker full of chili

Sunday: three gifts in Christ – in Whom all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell (Colossians 1:19)

1. peace with God (Romans 5:1-5)

2. every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places and adoption as God’s children (Ephesians 1:3-6)

3. redemption through His blood, forgiveness of our trespasses — according to the riches of His lavish grace — and a truly divine inheritance (Ephesians 1:7-14)

Each day’s theme is plucked from the Joy Dare calendar at A Holy Experience.
