This Old House



2 Corinthians 4:16

Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without His unfolding grace.








Happy Birthday to Lisa!  
My sweet friend of over 40 years asked me to do this sketch for her.  She's from New Orleans and loves the old historic homes found there.   I think as birthdays come and go we start to feel a little bit like this old house.   Our paint may be faded and worn, we may have a shutter barely hanging on it's hinges.  Even our landscaping is a bit overgrown and our floorboards creak!
    
But we still rejoice with each new day because 
in Christ we are brand new and His unfailing grace greets us with hope and promise.
