  1. I like the spin-cycle analogy. It’s true about election and about faith. It always revolves around “me” (much like the last thread).

    I love the past basket.

    I also love when Baptism comes into the conversation. Praise God.

    The past is over and a new day has begun.

  2. Magdalene,

    Me too! I liked all those things. I have heard it before, but I never tire of hearing it, and indeed I need to hear it, and hear it often!

    Thanks Magdalene!

  3. Hello Steve,

    I hope you are having a wonderful day! I returned from my walk a while ago and thought about these things. I never tire of hearing them either. A new day… 😉

  4. Magdalene,

    Thanks very much, I am have a good day. I started shooting (photos) of surf camp today. I’ll be out there Mon.- Fri. until the middle of August. ( I ought to look like a triple boiled lobster by then)
    Now I’ve got to upload my photos, clean ’em up and then get them on the site for the parents to buy some (hopefully) .

    It’s a lot of work, but it’s fun. I may be a little lax on ‘the old Adam’ for awhile, but I’ll try to keep at it also.

    I hope you are having a great day, Magdalene! You are such an encouragement and a blessing to me. Thanks for your support!

    Yours in Christ,


  5. Steve,

    Enjoy your day taking photographs/surf camp. Don’t forget your sunscreen… and Steve, watch out for sharks! 😉

    p.s. Your site blesses my life. Thank you for sharing God’s Word. †

  6. Thanks Magdalene!

    I’m back at home now. No sharks today. I did put my sunscreen on! Thanks for the reminder (I often forget)

    And thank you for sharing God’s Word!

    – Steve
