Welcome to INTO THE LIGHT Journal! This journal is NOT about me but about the GREAT Savior, the LORD JESUS CHRIST and ALL that He has done for me (and NOT what I have done)—who saved and changed(inside-out) a great sinner like me. I don't claim that I know everything about life. But one thing I am certain, that apart from the love and mercies of Christ—I AM NOTHING. "... God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world."(Galatians 6:14). I’m attesting the words of Charles Spurgeon: "My hope lives not because I am not a sinner but because I am a sinner for whom Christ died; I don’t trust that I am holy but that, being unholy, He is my righteousness. I don't have to be rich, but I must be pure. My faith doesn’t rest upon what I am, or shall be, or feel, or know, but in what Christ IS and what He has done for me. The love of Jesus is the source of salvation. He loves, He looks, He touches us, and we live!" Christ said, "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."(John 15:5). For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen. (Romans 10:36)

PSALM 34:3 ~ “Oh, magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together.”

Exalting the LORD’s faithfulness and goodness with our 20th Year Marriage Celebration(January 1998 – January 2018)! As we thank Him for being our ALL and ALL, along with our Families and Friends who shared with us, as we journey life through this special bond called, “MARRIAGE”.  TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!💓💓💓

A MARRIAGE BLESSING
Penned by: Ginny Hobson

May the LORD be in your marriage
May He bless your life anew
With all the joys of Heaven
As you journey your walk as two.
Remember to include Him
In all your dreams and plans
For He will surely guide you
If you seek Him in advance.
And as you join in Him together
Just know the strength in life
Is having God within you
As you live as man and wife.
God’s blessings be upon you
His grace to you impart
Find joys in everyday
And KEEP HIM IN YOUR HEART.
Remembering our Wedding Song…

CHERISH THE TREASURE
By: Steve Green

I cherish the treasure
The treasure of you
Lifelong companion
I give myself to you.
God has enabled me
To walk with you faithfully
And cherish the treasure
The treasure of you.
As I obey the Spirit's voice
And seek to do His will
I then can see the wisdom of His plan.
For as He works His will in me
I then can love you selflessly
And by His grace, can pledge my love to you.
I cherish the treasure
The treasure of you
Lifelong companion
I give myself to you.
God has enabled me
To walk with you faithfully
And cherish the treasure
The treasure of you.
This sacred vow I make to you
Does not contain an "If"
Though I'm aware that trials lie ahead.
I will love you and pray with you
And through it all, I will stay with you
Our home will be a refuge of unconditional love.
I cherish the treasure
The treasure of you
Lifelong companion
I give myself to you.
God has enabled me
To walk with you faithfully
And cherish the treasure
The treasure of you.
Cherish the treasure
The treasure of you.
