No Ordinary Person!

"Perceiving the disciples Peter and John
 to be uneducated, unskilled
ordinary men,
the high priest, elders and scribes
were amazed and they recognized them
as the companions of Jesus."
Acts 4:13

Am I an ordinary person?
Other people may perceive me 
to be ordinary, for sure!
But I have inside me an indescribable joy,
like a fountain,
and I do believe it is because I know
the giver of that fountain!
Like Peter and John,
Jesus is my companion!
And that is why you can't stop me
from sharing about God-
I want everyone to have that same joy,
that amazing peace that does not 
depend on whether things around me are perfect!

"We celebrate the fact that we are so important to God
that He wants to be knitted to us
in an intimate, unbreakable bond."
from the (Word Among Us)
If we attach ourselves to Him,
as a branch attaches to the vine,
we will have that joy and peace
that He promises.

Just as Mary's YES
overturned centuries of sin,
our YES to God can unleash
a tidal wave of grace
in the lives of those around us.
(from the Word Among Us)

Let us say YES to God every day!
Like Mary, like Peter and John,
like Mother Teresa,
and countless saints,
we  can make a difference in this world!

Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it soooo much!

This week, chose,
a dear friend who never fails to encourage
and brighten my day!
Be blessed when you pay her a visit at 
What do you know, this is Karen's
2nd time to win!

Sometimes I put on my best pajamas 
and join these great parties!
