Rejoice!

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new." 2 Corinthians 5:17
Sweet, precious Julie became a Christian yesterday! She made the decision to commit the rest of her life to the Lord, and she was baptized by a dear friend of ours last night. Rejoice!
While I spend most of my time blogging about our family and the fun we have, the places we visit, our running, homeschooling, and homemaking, all of those things pale in comparison to eternity. The most important goal I have for my 5 children is that they all become Christians, and then live their lives in service and obedience to the Lord. That is the big picture! If we miss heaven, we have missed it all!
"...knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of the Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." 1 Peter 1:18,19
