a little about free...

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written:

“ For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

- Rom. 8:31-39
Something I'm chewing on today that I thought I'd share. My writer's blocked article is drafted and submitted. I am still in my pajamas. I need a nap. But it is done for now. And I have heard a rumor that Pete may blog this evening.

I am so glad it is Friday.

Oh yes, and when you're pregnant, sick is good. It is important to remember this. Blah. The ironies of my life...
