Lent, Day 32: Grace

Day 32: Grace

I thought of another hymn today!

This is a rollicking gospel song called “Wonderful Grace of Jesus.” The chorus really rolls right along; I love singing it! (even though playing it in tempo is a challenge)

Dear God, Your grace is truly marvelous! Praise Your name! ❤

Lent, Day 27: Shame

Day 27: Shame

I was a church music major in undergraduate school. I can remember lots of lyrics from classic hymns.

When I saw the word for today, I could not help but remember this hymn. Thank You, Jesus, for taking away guilt and shame. Thank You, Jesus, that I have been redeemed.

Lent, Day 10: Already

Day 10: Already

Already? Is it Friday already? Is it 9:00 already? Is it the end of class already? Is my birthday over already?

Time passes so quickly. Savor each day. Live one day at a time. As Jesus said at the end of Matthew 6, each day has concerns of its own. Consider each day. Live without regrets. Live one day at a time.

NOW is the time we can change: not yesterday, not tomorrow.

Lent, Day 5: Ordinary

Day 5: Ordinary

When I thought about this word, the first thing that came to mind was Ordinary Time. As in the liturgical calendar. The season of Lent is not Ordinary! The Lenten season is purple, and a reflective, contemplative season.

The church altar cloths and my stole reflect the season of the year. This photo shows green, the color of Ordinary Time.

Lent, Day 3: Approval

Day 3: Approval

I attended an Evangelical college for my undergrad degree in church music. Its biblical motto was 2 Timothy 2:15. Even though I have traveled away from Evangelicalism in the decades since, I still try to uphold this verse!
