Heaven Will Be Wonderful!

This is my new catch phrase now. It keeps my mind right. Q:”How’s it going, Tonya?” A:”Heaven will be wonderful!” Q:”You have so much to do.” A:”Heaven will be wonderful!” You get the point. Keeps my mind fixed on the preciousness of evil – free eternity with Jesus. It is easier to focus on the present when daydreaming of a brilliant future. ☺❤❤❤

Quilt Progress, Pine Tree and Moon

Never thought I would like such a dark block but I believe this is what hope looks like visually. Darkness may be all around, but Jesus is our bright light like the moon here that makes it all right. Happy place. ❤ 

Great Compliment

I received one of the greatest comliments this morning at church. A man came up to me and said he missed it when I was not playing piano (and here is the compliment) because “I can tell you can show worship to Jesus because it is obvious you feel it.”  My heart for God melted. What an amazing thing when people notice how very much I love Jesus and love worshiping and leading worship to Him!! Oh how I am thankful for that encouragement. Praise Jesus, the lover of my soul!!! ❤❤❤

What I Believe

There is a big list of things I believe. But what is more important than that is what is true. I believe the Bible is true. I believe God is truth and He wrote everything we need to know in the Bible. I believe it is difinitive and unapologetic and stands and defends itself unquestionably and is our greatest tool for life, instruction, correction and battle (defense and offence). Thus, I believe every word in it is correct and true and gives us everything we need for salvation and eternal life with God in heaven through the saving power of Jesus Christ, the true Messiah and only means of salvation from sin and evil. I believe prayer, faith and contrition bring us to direct audience with Almighty God who loves us and wants to have a personal relationship with us. And that is it. I used to have many opinions, but God has lined them up with His truth, thanks and praise be to God!!! His is the opinion which matters because it n is true and perfect and holy. Praise God Almighty!!! Praise my Heavenly Father, Maker of heaven and earth and all that we see or know! May His name be lifted up! May His light cut through the darkness! May His truth set us all free! May those He made love Him and choose salvation! ❤❤❤

Feeling Good Today

Missing my walk ended up being a good thing. Got some sweet time drawing with my daughter and a good talk with my son. And had some great time talking to the Lord Jesus Christ, my very best friend and only Savior, and doing art through quilting, mowing (got rained out yesterday), going to IHOP with my family for brunch, measuring out the back porch with my hubby and planning for them to start working on making a concrete slap patio a sunroom complete with hot tub. I am not sure how this day could have been better. And the most beautiful part of the day was that it was an answer to prayer. I have had several really difficult days, horrible even at times, hard days, ugly even in moments. So I talked to Jesus, my Heavenly Father, about this. I asked Him to help. I was not sure how exactly, but He knows my heart and what I need even before I ask Him. And He gave me a very good day today, a happy husband, a good daughter, a happy son, a wonderful day. This is how good God is and how wonderful it is to have such a beautiful personal relationship with Jesus. He is so much more than my Savior who died and arose to give me a way to be saved and assured of heaven, but He walks and talks with me as I humbly pray, He is my best friend, my confidant, my comforter, the peace and joy and love in my soul. I  so honored that He loves me. I am so honored to be His!! ❤❤❤
