Caught the moment

Caught the Moment 5x7 Metallic Print by OneSixPix.etsy.com
Someone mentioned to me about living in the moment - it sounded ok at the time...but it kept bugging me.
It should -
it isn't about the "moment", although, I have spent anguished and despairing moments in the past, when just to make it through the "moment" was impossible by myself

It is about Eternity - seems so far away, and most cannot understand it - but it is about eternity.  This is the moment to decide, not just where to be for all eternity, but whether to stay dead in sin, or live in Christ right now - now - you can LIVE from this moment on :O) 
Putting off the decision, drops you into eternity with no way out .  And it is worse than you imagine....likewise, in Christ Jesus - is more life, more precious, more free, more hopeful, more joyous than you can imagine.......it is a fact.

Truth is non negotiable.

the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by  Jesus Christ  john chapter 1, verse 17

Unique ~ the designer's hands

Faux Lapis Lazuli Trapezium Pendant by Laura Torster, LauraBijoux

Unique...made unique by the designer, Laura Torster of Laura Bijoux

This beautiful, unique piece is created by cutting and chopping shades of blue and transparent polymer clay, with small flecks of gold leaf.

Then, hand shaped, and on top of that, lots and lots of sanding and sanding to achieve the smoothness and shape, then polishing, and then varnishing...then carefully measured and pierced, so that the gentle silver bail fits exactly right.....

hands...in different hands, the same clay and materials, would not produce this. No amount of extra work, or care or time...could make this. Laura's hands did and do. Gifted hands.

Whose hands are you in?

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them and they follow me:
And I give to them eternal life: and they shall never perish, neither shall anyone snatch them out of my hand
My Father, which gave them to me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of my Father's hand.
I and my Father are one.
john chapter 10, verses 27-30
