Do you ever forget where you put something important, like your eyeglasses or cell phone? I admit, I do it far too often.
JUST YESTERDAY I FORGOT SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT.
I forgot to include an encouraging picture and story in the blog. In fact, I didn’t remember until I was crawling into bed. Why do I always remember important things when I’m going to bed???
Here is the story and picture. I’m sure you’ll be as blessed as we were last Saturday at the ECHO event when a small group of children approached our tent. We thought they were going to ask for bottles of bubbles or walking sticks. But that’s not what they wanted.
These precious children wanted to sing a song for us! And so they did!
“My heart was dark with sin, until the Savior came in. His precious blood I know, has washed me white as snow. And in His Word I’m told, I’ll walk the streets of gold. To grow in Christ each day, I read my Bible and pray.”
What a sweet gift to hear the story of the beads (also known as the Wordless Book) sung by these dear children! I simply can’t stop looking at their precious faces. I wish we could take them with us to all our events.
Looking up the song, I learned that it was written way back in 1940 by Frances M. Johnston and has been used in Sunday schools and child evangelism ministries for generations! I’m so thankful that God never gives up on us humans. He continues to speak to each generation.
Thanks for reading. Please keep us in prayer as we travel to South Carolina the end of March. Look for our next blog in April following the S.C. Flowertown Festival. Sending our love from Punta Gorda, FL–Pete and Sandy
