The Truth is…

Easter services are always memorable. Yesterday at Everett’s New Life Center was no different. For some, it will be memorable because this was the year they arrived late and found chairs awaiting them in front of the monitor in the Courtyard! For others, this is the year they raised their hand for salvation in the 8 o’clock service and returned for water baptism in the 11:30.

My big take-away emerged from a video clip our pastor played highlighting Jesus and Peter in their last recorded conversation. Peter had thought Mary said, “beehives” but then when he got closer realized it was “He lives!” No–that part wasn’t my big a-ha–although that is the glorious message of Easter.

In that last recorded conversation with Peter about the crowing critter and denial and forgiveness, Jesus pressed his wayward disciple with a question and a mandate. “Do you love me?…Feed my sheep.” I have always loved how John writes that Jesus came full of grace and truth. Here these twins emerge up close and personal revealing that in the end…the truth is, it’s all about grace!

Forgetting our utter brokenness, we fall into the arms of grace complete with a life assignment no one else is designed to execute! It’s the down featherbed on the chip and seal of life. It’s grace! Not my truth or your truth, but simply grace as the truth.

About Your Flourishing Life

As a child, Marlee Huber loved to ramble through gardens sampling juicy berries and delighting in the heady fragrance of roses. As an adult, she thrills at maintaining a country garden in the foothills of the Washington Cascades. Something happened in 2012 that changed everything for Marlee. She followed the love of her life as he bicycled across the continent from their home in the NW to his brother's home in the Virginia. Ninety days later she came home and has never been the same. After photographing the backroads and hamlets across America--all on auto, she came home and took an online photography course, read dozens of books on technique and vision and stepped out into a new career. Her passion is coaching young people to discover their brilliance. She calls it Life-Themes Coaching and during one nearly half-day session, she unpacks what makes you brilliant and one of a kind. Then she matches the discoveries with a photography session where she tells the story of your life with her camera. In her personal life, she is a wife, mother, and grandmother delighting in her flourishing family!
