Simple + Southern Sunday No. 32

  “For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it”
Hebrews‬ ‭12‬:‭11sss24
 O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be
Let thy goodness like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for thy courts above.

    I so love to see our flag as it waves and with the beautiful sunset as a backdrop…it made for a lovely picture. I’ve become so inspired with all the pictures of churches you’ve posted I’ve started taking my own, which I will one day publish into my own coffee table book. Happy Sunday!!
