Laughing and Crying with HOPE

THIS made me cry.

This made me laugh!

THIS gave me hope.

Whatever a man’s past life may have been, there is hope and a remedy for him in Christ. If he is only willing to hear Christ’s voice and follow Him, Christ is willing to receive him at once as a friend, and to bestow on him the fullest measure of mercy and grace. The Samaritan woman, the penitent thief, the Philippian jailor, the tax-collector Zaccheus, are all patterns of Christ’s readiness to show mercy, and to confer full and immediate pardons. It is His glory that, like a great physician, He will undertake to cure those who are apparently incurable, and that none are too bad for Him to love and heal. Let these things sink down into our hearts. Whatever else we doubt, let us never doubt that Christ’s love to sinners passes knowledge, and that Christ is as willing to receive as He is almighty to save.
~ J.C. Ryle

Let the love of Christ dwell richly in your lives!


  1. Came here yesterday but couldn't get Chonda to load on my computer. It seems to be working better this AM so I'm going to click. She ALWAYS makes me roll.

    As to the rest of the post, I was touched to the core with the post about baby Molly. You always find the best stuff to share.

    And the hope part makes me want to shout.

    Now, to kick back with my morning coffee and watch Chonda.

  2. What we do without hope? Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed day, hugs.
