On Thursday I wrote a post about books, and how grateful I am for being able to look at my book shelf and see 5 different translations of the Bible. I am free to read them to my heart's content, and share my beliefs without facing persecution. I must confess, I looked at my Bible a little different after hearing the news this morning. How grateful I am to live in a country where I can express my faith in Jesus openly and fully.
I am sure Jesus welcomed home His faithful servants today with open arms. Nothing surprises God, and nothing is beyond His reach. He was there with them in their darkest hour. Especially today I am thanking you Lord for the many gifts you have given me ~ including more Bibles than I need, and a safe place to read them and share my faith.
