Ten Things of Thankful

September 13 – 27  – ,  2021

 

This is my Fifth   TIME to WRITE  TTOT  –

Five is for GRACE.

Number 5 symbolizes God’s grace, goodness and favor toward His creations.

Number 5 is mentioned 318 times in the Holy Bible.

Five is the number of grace, and multiplied by itself, which is 25, is ‘grace upon grace’ (John 1:16).

The Ten Commandments contains two sets of 5 commandments.

Let’s GO!
