For those of you who are unable to come visit us, I thought I would give a pictorial tour of Lily's Nursery.

Moving past the guest bed, we come to the corner with the bedroom's window, decorated with lavender curtains. In this corner, at the end of the bed, is the glider rocker with ottoman, and a blanket made by Aunt Helen Ann.

I hope you have enjoyed this tour through Lily's nursery. We've really enjoyed setting everything up and getting the nursery ready for our little Lillian!

Today´s reading:
OT: I Samuel 1, I Samuel 2:1-21
NT: John 5:1-23
Ps: Psalm 105:37-45
Pr: Proverbs 14:28-29

Gospel Thread - OT:

those who oppose the LORD will be shattered. He will thunder against them from heaven; the LORD will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed.

I Samuel 4:10 (NIV)

Hannah's song of worship at the dedication of Samuel could certainly be considered to be, one at least one level, a messianic reference - especially these closing lines.

Gospel Thread - NT:

For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.

John 5:21 (NIV)

Life - eternal, spiritual life - comes through Christ alone. Fortunately for us, He chose to make that life available to every one who will come to Him.

Gospel Thread - Psalms/Proverbs:

43 He brought out his people with rejoicing, his chosen ones with shouts of joy;
44 he gave them the lands of the nations, and they fell heir to what others had toiled for-
45 that they might keep his precepts and observe his laws. Praise the LORD.

Psalm 105:43-45 (NIV)

God fulfilled His promise to Abraham through the Israelites - he redeemed and rescued and blessed them - for this purpose: that they might keep His precepts and observe His laws. It is for this same reason that God redeems and blesses us: that we might be Holy, as He is holy.
