I often laugh
because I wonder
at the thought: When I
the quantity of ash
in my past
fairly equivalent in its
ugliness to the quality of my
in this blessed
new day when
God has so
obviously called this
day mine and has
surely given me
so much beauty for so many ashes?
itís easy to laugh at me,
good medicine for my
heart -- this contrite heart,
tried, but alas, ash-free

Isaiah 61:3-4 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them BEAUTY FOR ASHES, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, THE PLANTING OF THE LORD, THAT HE MIGHT BE GLORIFIED. And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
