Grace and peace be with you
Giving thanks for ... the night and the music.gelati. a trip filled with much love and friendship. Mr Grey's company.
the girl, the girl who died? it's terrible to put this in writing but.
the girl was the same age as the sister, had gone to all the same schools.
and but for the grace, the everlasting grace of God....
she could have been anyone of us.
there are so many distractions. food, shopping, moving countries, academic interests, music, art - we pretend that some of it is more important, more weighty than the others. but all the same, so much of it coming at us and then we forget.
the things that really matter. the things that have eternal weight, eternal consequences.
the most important question in our lives isn't about who we're going to marry, where we'll work, what we'll do in the next five, ten, fifteen years.
it's this: on that great and final day, when He comes to judge the living and the dead, to separate the goats from the sheep - where will you stand?
who will we follow?
