Laurie’s Blog



I was given a gift two summers ago, that will last me a life time. It came in the package of perspective.

My oldest son and I spent a week at JH Ranch in northern California. On the ranch, high up on the side of a mountain, sat a white cross. From the valley, it appeared to be a tiny spec, but after a long hike up the mountainside, the cross loomed over me larger than life. As I stood right next to it, the view of the valley was glorious!

The cross didn’t change. My perspective did.

How comforting to know that our Jesus, who died on a cross to save us from our sins, never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. And guess what? The closer I am to Him, the better my perspective on life.

I encourage you to spend time with God this fall. His Word offers us His perspective and HIs peace that passes all understanding. For whether we are down in a valley or up on a mountain, the saving grace of Jesus Christ never changes.
