“The impact Sister Julienne made upon me-and, I discovered, most people-was out of proportion to her words or her appearance. She was not imposing or commanding, nor arresting in any way. She was not even particularly clever. But something radiated from her and, ponder as I might, I could not understand it. It did not occur to me at the time that her radiance had a spiritual dimension, owing nothing to the values of the temporal world.”
(~ from Call the Midwife, by Jennifer Worth)
Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Hello my friends! I hope each of you is having a wonderful day. I was at Bible Study all day and then made a run to Costco for groceries. I’ve changed into comfortable clothes now and am getting ready to cook dinner/love on, the family. David is busy drawing, Caleb and Seth are outside playing, Sarah is napping, and the older ones are at after school activities. Rich should be home within an hour or so. It’s chilly today, in the low 50’s at the moment, and a frost advisory for tonight.
I hope you like the quote, it is one that I wrote in my journal this last winter as I read through all of Jennifer Worth’s wonderful books (highly recommended). I can think of women in my own life that radiate the love of Jesus and I pray that I can be a blessing in that way, as well.
