For My Sinful Coldness, Too

"The bitterness of death to Him is the very fountain of the sweetness of life to us."

In case you don't already go there, here is a link to Rebecca Writes' post of a March 3rd devotional from the book Opened Treasureswritten by Frances Ridley Havergal. It is beautiful!
I think of Frances as your friend, Livi, since you've read her biography. I don't know much about her, but I would like to.

Rebecca also wrote a brief biographical sketch of Frances' life for us in this recent post, "The Other Fanny". Enjoy.

Beautiful. Thank you, Katie. His bitter cup, my sweet fountain. glorious.

It's precious to me that my girls' friends are ladies like F.R.H. and E. P.:)...perhaps one reason that I find you both to be such rare and lovely persons...

I'm glad you linked to Rebecca. Love her.

Praying for you as I go (not too far or fast, but...) this morning.

Thank you Katie.
I need this so much. My hardness is so real; but He is enough.
Maybe I need to own Opened Treasures. I love Francis.

I so enjoyed "The Other Fanny".
A true hero.

Love you Sis,
