God wrote "I love you"
He wrote His message everywhere! Because God created everything in His world to reflect Him like a mirror- to show us what He is like, to help us know Him, to make our hearts sing.
The way a kitten chases her tail. The way red poppies grow wild. The way a dolphin swims.
And God put it into words, too, and wrote it in a book called the Bible" -Sally Lloyd-Jones, The Jesus Storybook Bible
--this early morning glory: candles lit, peace, sweet creamy coffee, Your Word illuminated
--"we all with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord-
--being transformed into the same image from glory to glory" (2 Cor 3:18)
--the world slowly coming to life
--the sun creeping from its resting place, crawling across my page
--turning toward the Son, so I can truly see
--happy yellow roses to greet the day
--the power coming back on!
--this Grand Love Story You invite me into. how You woo me daily, if I have eyes to see
--the song of praise rising in my heart
--Letting boys be boys: goofy, wrestling, climbing, energetic, hilarious, mine.
--grateful boys at breakfast
--no complaints at dinner!
--"if I take the wings of the morning- even there Your hand shall lead me and Your right hand shall hold me" (Ps 139:9)
--You walking with me into this school year full of ministry here in Uganda.
