In With The NEW

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayNEW1_zps9lp13ln9.jpg

In With The NEW

We are only days away from welcoming in a New Year but the only true "new" happening is through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
It is because of Jesus that we have become a 
NEW creation - a NEW birth 
with a NEW life, 
a NEW self 
and a NEW attitude.  
Jesus gave us a NEW command 
and we look forward to a NEW heaven & earth!

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ 
from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
1 Peter 1:3-5

We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may 
live a new life.
Romans 6:4

Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.

Colossians 3:9-10

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;  to be made new in the attitude of 

your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
Ephesians 4:22-24

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayNEW2_zpsgsfsas9o.jpg

But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth
where righteousness dwells.
2 Peter 3:13

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayNEW3_zpsrbnso9ir.jpg

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.  I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her 
husband.  And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.  ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
Revelation 21:1-4

Christmas at the Manor House

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for https://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo unnamed 6_zpslprhmld4.jpg

Christmas at the Manor House

I wanted to post these "Christmas-themed" pictures before December 25th buth the third party photo service that I use had a breakdown.  However, I always keep my Christmas decorations up through New Years Day, therefore this post can still be enjoyed now.
This Manor House was built in 1936 by a wealthy family who made their riches from a spark plug company.  This mansion became a museum in 1970 and every December they decorate each room with a different theme (I have featured 8 different styles).
ENJOY!
