Every day ...

Living, growing, loving life ...

Meaning of Life Contest Winner 

Do we just live the best we can
Or is there a purpose, some special plan?
Of course we love others - as we should ...
And spend our lives in doing good.

But I want to know our holy God
And follow the path that Jesus trod ...
Not a place in heaven to earn,
But from His teachings daily learn.

For Jesus left to prepare our place -
Gifted to us by infinite grace ....
I am thankful - and want others to see
The light of His love shining in me.


Writing Prompt

"I have come that you might have life ... and have it more abundantly"
Words spoken by Jesus, recorded in the Bible (John 10:10)

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.
(See Ephesians 2:8, 9)
