Spiritual Sundays

Happy weekend everyone and welcome to my Spiritual Sundays post! For more inspirationals please click on the link to visit Charlotte and Ginger and all the other Spiritual Sundays participants.

My youngest son had given his father a book for Christmas penned by N.T. Wright which I am also reading at the present moment. I like his writings and I came across this quote which I would like to share with you:

"Our task as image-bearing, God-loving, Christ-shaped, Spirit-filled Christians, following Christ and shaping our world, is to announce redemption to a world which has discovered its fallenness, to announce healing to a world that has discovered its brokenness, to proclaim love and trust to a world that knows only exploitation, fear and suspicion.... The gospel of Jesus points us and indeed urges us to be at the leading edge of the whole culture, articulating in story and music and art and philosophy and education and poetry and politics and theology and even-- heaven help us-- biblical studies, a world view that will mount the historically-rooted Christian challenge to both modernity and postmodernity, leading the way.... with joy and humor and gentleness and good judgement and true wisdom. I believe if we face the question, "if not now, then when?" if we are grasped by this vision we may also hear the question, "if not us, then who?" and if the gospel of Jesus is not the key to this task, then what is?" - N. T. Wright

Thank you for stopping by and I pray you will be blessed and be a blessing this weekend.

Pink Saturday

Hello pinkie friends and welcome to my Pink Saturday post!

April showers bring May flowers and when I was preparing this post, it was raining out. So I have brought out my pink striped umbrella.

I have this pretty Limoges plate which my Aunt Judy gifted me with. The plate is made in France and adorned with pink roses and edged with gold.
I have a new plate hanger for it so I thought I would share that today also. I have it hanging in the dining room.

Thank you for stopping by for my little bit of pink. Please visit our hostess Beverly with her lineup of pink participants
and have a lovely Pink Saturday weekend!
Hope to see you on Tuesday for Tea Time!
