I listened, “Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (NIV) and slowed myself down to focus on the goodness of God to me in the midst of troubling times. I’ve been given his Gospel. The Crucified One is my testimony. The Cross my confession.
The time of reflection and reception was a gift of grace to me. My heart has found buoyancy for the day.
***If you get a chance, go to Ortega’s website here and click through the songs on his jukebox located in the upper right corner to listen to “Grace and Peace.” Close your eyes. Think upon the blessings given to us in Jesus Christ. Enjoy.***
