All of the sticks in the Bread Basket are super excited about this month's release! Who doesn't love butterflies? They are a symbol of HOPE and of NEW LIFE... and they are one of God's most beautiful creations! Only God with His incredible creativity could create a butterfly so beautiful that lives it's early life in the form of a humble caterpillar! Yet it's also a beautiful picture of what He does in OUR lives when we accept HIM as our Savior! The Bible tells us we are a NEW CREATURE; old things are passed away and all things have become new! We are beautiful in His eyes, dearly loved, cleansed, forgiven and created to do good works!
The theme for this month's Blog Hop is "Taking a Leap of Faith". At the start of a New Year, many of us desire to start out with a clean slate... to fix some of the poor habits we've had in the past, to lose weight, spend more quiet time with the Lord, get organized, spend more time with family.... the list goes on and on! Any major change we want to make in our lives requires a big step out of our comfort zone... whether it's a huge step into better discipline or a leap of faith in asking God to work in us to do things we just can't do in our own power! Two sets this month are focused on Faith! With this in mind, here is the question we'd like you to answer in your comment below when you have completed the hop:
“What are your New Years resolutions or leaps of faith you plan to take in 2011?”
Now, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and enjoy the Leap of Faith Blog Hop!
