As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Celebrating His Grace

Thirty-eight years ago today, the Holy Spirit wooed my heart and, as a twelve-year-old girl, I accepted God's gift of grace in the person of His only Son, Jesus Christ. And oh how great I have found His grace to be!

I continue to be overwhelmed by His mercy!

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.

Colossians 1:12-14


  1. happy rebirthday!!! what a wonderful, wonderful blessing--i'm so glad you did! the way--i'm surprised by your age--you age well--i thought you were younger! love you!

  2. Cheryl, it's Sunday morning and I'm just seeing this. I'm sorry I didn't see it on your Most Special Day. But Hallelujah! Thirty-eight years! What a wonderful blessing to have come to Him at the age of twelve. Elizabeth Prentiss said: "Whenever I think of God's wonderful, WONDERFUL goodness to me and of my own sinfulness, I want to find a place low at the foot of the cross where I may cover my face in the dust and yet go on praising Him." Those words express our own hearts EXACTLY, don't they? A place low at the foot of the cross. Happy Spiritual Birthday, Cheryl .... the most precious birthday of all.
