This morning I leave Gulfport, Ms.
Before I walk out the door, I pick up the Bible left in the cottage and write these words on the front page:
You’ve never been known like He knows you –
Never felt understood until you know He understands –
Never been loved until He touches you –
Abundant Life! It’s not a reward, it’s a gift –
He treasures His treasure and His treasure you are –
His peace will guard your heart and mind as you live in Christ Jesus!
See Psalm 139, Psalm 118 and Phil 4:6-7
February 10, 2016
As I write these words I remember what day it is: February 10th – a day of remembrance – The day LOVE called.
On this date in 1972, The Living God whispered in my ear. He called me by name and I answered Him. Forty-four years! In eternity a mere grain of sand, but for me a matter of life and death.
In honor of His love – I say, “Good morning, Lord. I love! Is that you calling me to come? Yes, here I am to worship. Here I am to bow down. Here I am to call You, Lord! Thank You – a thousand times, thank You!”
*Love calls –
How beautiful you are My darling
Oh how beautiful!
My beautiful one
Come to Me
Show me your face,
Let me hear your voice;
For your voice is sweet
And your face is lovely
I answer His call –
My Lover is mine and I am His
I will search for the One my heart moves
His eternal response is love–
I have loved you with an everlasting love
When LOVE calls will I be found by Him?
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. John 4:16 NIV

Blessings to all of you. I will be thinking about you as I drive back to Florida –
Yours in Him,
