Confirmation- 50th Anniversary

Today is the 50th Anniversary
 of my Confirmation.
50 years of grace and mercy.
My Confirmation verse is:
John 10:27-28.
I have always especially like the part:
"no one will snatch them out of my hand."
This is my Faith Rolodex where we have 
all the important family dates 
as well as cards for important 
Faith Vocabulary Words.
Enduring Word Bible #40
John 10:14 and John 22-42

I really like this story now that I can picture
 just where Jesus was for these words.
Our trips to Israel and for here- Jerusalem, 
help me to SEE the landscape and city
  where Jesus spoke these words.
walking in the temple,
 in the colonnade of Solomon,
at the time of the feast of the Dedication
"I and the Father are ONE."
Blasphemous words to the Jews in authority.
They wanted to stone him.
They tried to arrest him.
But he escaped from their hands.
He went away across the Jordan
 to where John had been baptizing at first,
He stayed there.
Many came to see him.
And many believed in him there.
Soon on this Anniversary
 I am so very thankful:
that I hear the voice of Jesus, 
that Jesus knows me,
and I follow him.
I am blessed to have:
eternal life,
and know I will never perish,
and that no one can snatch me 
out of the hand of Jesus.
