He took away all my sin and shame, and what did He give me instead? a new life, a better life. I no longer have to live in condemnation or guilt because my sins were crucified with Christ and are buried with him.
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7
I have been resurrected with Jesus and I am now a new creation that lives to care for and love the people that I am surrounded with.
I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Isaiah 43:25
One of my favorite 2nd Chapter of Acts songs...some people can just say it better than me

The Fruits of True and Sincere Repentance
By: Johann Gerhard
The fundamental principle of the holy life is healthy repentance. Where there is true repentance, there is forgiveness of sins. Where there is forgiveness of sins, there is the grace of God. Where there is the grace of God, there is Christ. Where there is Christ, there is His merit. Where there is His merit, there is satisfaction for sin. Where there is satisfaction for sin, there is justification. Where there is justification, there is a joyful and tranquil conscience. Where there is tranquility of conscience, there is the Holy Spirit. Where there is the Holy Spirit, there is the entire divine Holy Trinity. Where there is the Holy Trinity, there is eternal life.

I am sharing with you my recipe for Tzatziki Sauce, since a few people asked about it on Sunday. Hope you like it :)
2 (8 ounce) containers plain yogurt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
3 cloves garlic, peeled (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
With a cheese grater, grate the whole cucumber (including skin) into a strainer - squeeze the excess water out of the cucumber with your hands. In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic. Add the cucumber and mix together; add salt and pepper to taste.
To make a Pita sandwich, spread the tzatziki sauce over the pita and add a salad mix, cucumbers, feta cheese, dried cranberries, walnuts and grilled chicken. Yummy!

I read this riddle last week and it has been racking my brain since. I just can't seem to figure it out, see if you can...
Three people go to a restaurant and each buy a meal for $10. Together, they pay the waitress a total of $30.
The waitress goes to the boss and gives him the money ($30). The boss tells her that when three people order the same dish it is only $25. The boss gives the waitress $5 and tells her to give it back to the customers.
The waitress doesn’t know how to give back $5 to three people, but comes up with an idea. She keeps $2 in her own pocket and gives one dollar to each one of the three customers($3).
How much did each customer pay?
3 customers x $9 = $27
+ $2 in the waitress’s pocket
What happened to the last dollar???
