1 Peter 1:13 ESV
My hope is found in the promise that Jesus will come back, and this verse says He will bring us the gift of (undeserved) grace along with Him. That means, although we are nasty sinners, if we have accepted His gift of salvation, once He returns we are not guilty before Him! Mind you, as long as we ask for forgiveness before He returns we are then already washed clean. Yet there is something beautiful about knowing that once we are in God's presence, we are completely redeemed by His Son's death for our sins, resurrection for our hope. We have nothing to fear, no worries to hold on to - in Jesus' eyes, we are holy!
Santiago likes gardening, and I like eating gardens. Win, win! Here is a recipe that I found in the raw food blogger world, and it was absolutely delicious!
Cilantro n' Mango Salsa (over greens!)
- 1-2 mangos
- 1 medium tomato
- 1 handful cilantro
- optional: 1/4 cup diced red onion
- optional: 1 serrano chili pepper (spicy!)
The greens I chose were: a couple handfuls of spring mix and half a head of green leaf lettuce to make things crunchy. Oh so good!
