Double the Grace

Today I've completed another year on the planet...today I turn 55! Double 5's!! When I think of 5 being the biblical number for grace, I'm pretty excited about this year at what lies ahead for me. Double the grace, Lord!

In the Bible the number 5 is significant. Redemption. Israel came out of Egypt 5 in rank (Ex 13:18). David picked up 5 smooth stones to fight Goliath (1 Sam. 17:40). The Holy Anointing Oil was pure and composed of 5 parts (Ex. 30:23-25). So the fact that I will be sporting two 5's side by side is a bit special don't you think?

His grace is sufficient and I'm taking hold of a double portion right now! Thank you for your prayers and for reading and sharing a cup of joe with me every day!
