    good food to chew on this morning. You know there was a point where I was a full fledged Sadducee; and wouldn’t have been able to identify myself as such.. now i’m learning… i still have my moments.. but i’m learning… working on having mercy on myself and on others…

    I just noticed on your profile that you are a Toby Mac fan…you know I was walking the other night with…”When love is in the house, the house is packed…”
    LoVE HIM!!

    There are definite echoes of Jesus’ parable of the Pharisee and the publican (Luke 18).

    My problem? I have, more than once, prayed, “Lord, thank you that you have humbled me like the publican. Thank you that I’m not like the Pharisee.”

    I have a lot to learn.

    So thankful to find someone who has a heart for those behind bars. I used to volunteer with the incarcerated girls with Youth For Christ Ministries. So enjoyed pouring love on them and walking with them through the dark times.

    I’m surprised you can use pictures and names. That’s awesome. We weren’t allowed to share any info like that, so I would always have to say pray for “A.” Great to be able to put a face to a prayer request. God bless you as you give to those in need.

    Hello sister Carmen!

    Thank you for your kind comment on my blog!

    And thank you for this wonderful teaching! I LOVED IT!! It reminded me of Galatians 6:3-4

    Bless you sister! I will certainly continue to pray for those who are in prison.

    What a good word. I always learn something new when I drop in for a spell. And tell Judy, I’m still praying for her and these sweet ladies. I am going next week to visit in a prison myself. Take care.

    Your BFF,
