“The mercy of God bestowed on you and me” by John Bunyan

“If you find me short in things, impute that to my love of brevity. If you find me besides the truth in anything, impute that to my infirmity. But if you find anything here that serves to your furtherance and joy of the faith, impute that to the mercy of God bestowed on you and me. Yours to serve you with what little I have.”

–John Bunyan, The Works of John Bunyan. Ed. George Offor (Carlisle, Pa.: Banner of Truth, 1991), Vol. 1: 336.

    such a wonderfully humble admittance. i need that.

  2. May we all remember this every moment of everyday.

  3. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
