Steve and I drove to our local library yesterday to check out some movies.As we drove we passed by several yard sales.We love them but often will simply drive by if we don't see anything we need out on the front lawn.We passed by one as we did'nt see anything we needed.Nothing had piqued our interest.As we drove away Steve said"Got Jesus?"I said"What?"He said"Got Jesus? was on the man's shirt at the yard sale we just passed."Immediately the thought came to me that it is not always whether we have Jesus.Often the question should be"does Jesus have us?"Have a blessed Saturday.

Summer's rain,gently,softly falling to earth from pale,leaden skies.
Soaking into parched,sun-baked,hardened ground.Barren ground.Void of life.Void of growth.
A welcomed respite from the searing,blazing sun and heat.
Our hearts and minds,Jesus,like that hardened earth,needing a gentle rain from You.
A gentle grace-rain.To soften us,refresh us,prepare us for new life and new growth.
Thank You Jesus for the rain that waters the earth and Your grace rain that waters our lives.
