F-E-A-R

I have been thinking lately about fear.  It seems to be all around- everywhere I look, I see it, and even at times it rises, in me.  And seeing all this fearfulness makes me sad.  Sad because I know it isn’t the way our heavenly father wanted this world to be.  In 2 Timothy 1:7, Paul writes these important words to Timothy, For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 

Generous Forgiveness!

In many parts of the world, open-air markets are still the primary way grain is sold.  An honest and generous merchant will take a basket, pour some grain into it, and press it down to make room for more.  He will shake the basket from side to side to help all the tiny grains fill in any air pockets.  And, then he will press it down some more, adding grain as he goes.

The first few weeks living in Paris were so cold, but it was January, after all. Even the heat could not keep up with the freezing temperatures outside. I was so thankful for my new friend. I had never met Carrie in person, but we had been communicating by email for several months. Carrie had offered to take me around Paris; what a blessing was. She took me on the metro and showed me “the ropes” by giving me lessons on reading the metro maps and buying tickets, and then she warned me about pickpockets.
