Today is Friday, February 21st, 2014; Karen's Korner #2759

Karen's Korner readers come from lots of places. In case you don't live in/near north central Iowa (i.e. Clarion), you may not have any idea how much snow we have had in the last day. It's lots! We lost our electricity mid-afternoon, so we made our way to Clarion and its only motel -- we were the last people to get a room. We have just skidded our way back to our farm home, hoping that county snow plows will be on there way some time soon!
Today's 'korner' is a Max Lucado writing from a number of months ago; appropriate as he talks about skiing - making us to continue to think about the Winter Olympics:
A New Heart

When you give your heart to Jesus—He returns the favor with a spiritual heart transplant!

When a family lost their 13-year-old daughter in a skiing accident, they decided to donate all her organs to whomever needed them most. Through a set of unusual circumstances they met the heart recipient. They had only one request. As they put the stethoscope to the chest of the woman who’d received the transplant—they heard the still-beating heart of their daughter.

The grace message says that God can hear the beating heart of Jesus Christ—in our hearts, in our lives, in our bodies.   When we give our heart to Jesus He returns the favor.  We have a brand new heart.  What exciting news. What wonderful grace!
