These are some amazing points, Karen. The Bible really is a story of redemption between God and His people.
I agree. The Bible is God’s story of pure love, love so amazing that He gave everything for His creation. God truly is love. A love that does away with evil forever and has given every spiritual blessing and newness of life and creation. May the reality of God’s amazing love capture your heart. Karen
These are awesome! With Christ, hope endures and is eternal!!

Lynn, You are always so very gracious. Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad that the thoughts resonated with you. The Bible is such a beautiful love letter to us from our loving Father. He created beauty and perfection the first time, but we messed it up, so the merciful Creator that He is, He made a way so that we could enjoy beauty and perfection through His new creation. God loves you and is delighted with you. May His grace and peace fill your days. Karen
