This week I am going to share a few of my favorite Bible verses among other things. These three favorites are all from The New Testament and they are self-explanatory.
The first is John 3:16 ~
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
The next is Luke 18:16 ~
But Jesus called them unto Him, and said, "Suffer little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God"
And the last one today is John 8:10 & 11 ~
10 ~ When Jesus had lifted up Himself, and saw none but the woman, He said unto her, "Woman, where are those thine accusers? Hath no man condemned thee?"
11 ~ She said, "No man, Lord." And Jesus said unto her, "Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more."
I'd also like to share one of my favorite books with you:
A Prayer For Owen Meany ~ by John Irving.
This story was a little quirky but I liked this book a lot because it dealt with matters of Faith, and a belief that everyone has a purpose, and that everything in life happens for a reason.
I also liked very much the movie based on this book ~ Simon Birch.
Another favorite I'd like to share is my favorite flower ~ the tulip.
One last favorite I'd like to share is something I bought from the Janet Hill Studio at Esty (you can check out Janet's talent for yourself on her blog):
Isn't this sweet? I'm going to hang it in my back room overlooking the pool. Something about this piece called out to me.
The title of the piece is 'Francis Models Her Bathing Cap', and Janet spelled Francis with an 'i' instead of an 'e', and my Dad's name was Francis (my middle name is Frances), so that definitely was one thing that spoke to me. And it also evoked memories for me, I remember those bathing caps with the flowers on them (but I did not like them very much at all), I do love her little skirted bathing suit though, and the colors are so striking. And Francis exudes such confidence in her new bathing cap! It's as if, for at least this moment, all is right in Francis' world.
Thank you, Janet Hill, for creating Francis!
