Genesis 42 & 43; Psalm 5; Luke 17

Luke 17: 17 Jesus asked, "Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?" 19 Then he said to him, "Rise and go; your faith has made you well."
To turn back…..to turn back and humbly give praise….
You are a God beyond understanding…yeah for THAT
Your ways are so much better than mine and that I thought differently I am sorry
A world of such diversity, who could imagine…only YOU
Journey’s, to give them to us and allow us free will....
Seasons…even this morning the snow was beautiful, before anything touched it beautiful.
Grandchildren, second chances to love.
Second chances, mulligans, do-overs….Your grace................ undeniable
My husband, I am so grateful to be on this journey with him. To get up in the morning and be able together spend time with you. I am blown away
To turn back….always the opportunity to turn back.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive. CS Lewis

just beautiful...wonderful thoughts. I too am thankful for seasons and journeys. I posted just yesterday about the blessing of my boys being best friends - something I could take for granted but hope I always turn back with gratitude and praise.
