vicarious

Friend RP and his wife recently vacationed in St. John, USVI. He told me about the trip before they left, sent pictures while they were gone, and shared more stories after they returned. I tried to travel with them vicariously - and without jealousy - until I can make my own trip to USVI.

Jesus' death on the cross was also vicarious and substitutionary - for my sins. It is not a trip I can make myself. "My sin - oh the bliss of this glorious thought - my sin not in part but the whole was nailed to the cross and I bear it no more - praise the Lord, praise the Lord oh my soul."

From the spiritual to the practical - no one is going to vicariously visit my house and vacuum. I am in the market for a new vacuum cleaner and need some advice from my blog world friends. Favorites?

If only someone would come and vacuum my place. Great "v" post.

St. Thomas is a great place, I have been privileged to go once.

But, I too, visit many other places vicariously.

Thank God for the vicarious atonement of Christ! Praise God!

Great V, you really had me, from
vacation, to God to vacuuming!
You really can weave those words!
