A believing life (29): Holy Surprise

“Always we begin again”

What a lovely thought.

“What we must never be encouraged to do, although all of us are guilty of it over and over, is to force Scripture to fit our experience. Our experience is too small; it’s like trying to put the ocean into a thimble. What we want is to fit into the world revealed by Scripture, to swim in its vast ocean.” – Eugene Peterson (http://bit.ly/1LsizTk)

A Celtic week:



Our #10 lime caterpillar, Jio, moulted for the final time this afternoon, even as we buried baby #8 (Tai) and watch baby #9 (Bo the Second) breathe its last. (Jio’s old skin is behind it; the old headskin is on its right below)
