Sovereign Grace

That’s the Point
by Charlie Peacock, 1996

this is what it’s like to be loved
this is what it’s like to be forgiven
this is what it feels like to be alive
to be living in a way that you don’t have to fear
being zapped by God
because you don’t measure up
after all
that’s the point
that’s the point

it’s a point that’s missed by
more than a few
young and old, tried and true
sin is a cancer,
not just a thing you do from time to time
like slipping or tripping
or losing your keys
it’s in you mister
sister it’s in me

it’s a point that’s missed by more than a few
I confess to it; how about you?
sin is a sickness, not just a thing we do
from time to time
like stumbling or fumbling or
having to sneeze
it’s in you mister
sister it’s in me

that’s the point.

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
