Glory

Glory is the word for the 11th of August.

I’ll need to share this whole rich paragraph from Colossians with glory being the last word.

Colossians 3:1-4

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Share your verses in the comments or on your blog and I’ll add them here.

From Maristella:

 “Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.”
Romans 5:3-4 | NIV.

From Linda P. :

Glory: “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”. Amen. Philippians 2. 10-11

From my sister Vera:

“Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty— he is the King of glory.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭24:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

From Pattystitch:

Galatians 6:14 God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Happy One posted this verse on her blog, Life is Good.

John 11:40  KJV

Jesus saith unto her,
Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe,
thou shouldest see the GLORY of God?

On Sunday we attended a birthday party for our grands’ other granny, Linda. We were greeted with a very excited little 3 year old who wanted to…

…sell us some lemonade or Iced Tea from her stand. 5 cents per cup, what a bargain. She was hilarious and very careful when she poured for each person. She filled Granny Great’s cup half full and Granny said “Is that all I get?” and Addy responded, “that’s enough”. It worked out financially for Addy that most of the adults did not have any loose change so she got a $5 bill and several $1 bills.

You should never leave your stand unattended especially when you have a baby brother!

We had a delicious dinner on the deck.

Linda is on the left with the cup up to her mouth. Happy Birthday Linda! Her friend Jo is next to her. Granny Great and Great Grandpa Jim, Aunt Rhonda, and Uncle Scott with Dan and Addy way in the back.

Jamie and Gramps got into this photo.

Hope all is well in your corner of the world.

I’m happy to see that the symbol of the Cross of Christ can still be displayed on our houses of worship!

Galatians 6:14 ~ But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Jude 1:20-21 (The Message)

But you, dear friends, carefully build yourselves up in this most holy faith by praying in the Holy Spirit, staying right at the center of God’s love, keeping your arms open and outstretched, ready for the mercy of our Master, Jesus Christ. This is the unending life, the real life!

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.
