I cherish the Bible. It's been my closest companion for 31 years. When it's not open, it's near my side. It has saved my life a million times. It's more than paper and ink, it's life and liberty—because the living God lives here.
When we were kids all we wanted was to be grown-ups, right? And yet the Father says, Come like a child. That's good news, really, because what hardworking adult couldn't use some of the benefits of being a child? Any of us not hungering for an ear to listen, a hand to hold, arms to carry us when we can't walk one more step? Oh, I do. And I know you do too.
Children run for fun. Sing at the top of their lungs. Dance like nobody's watching. Cry when it hurts. Children say what they think and show when they're scared. Receiving the grace of God takes the trusting heart of a little child.
I started blogging in 2009 as a way of meditating on scripture. Writing is the way I find words I long to say, questions I know not how to ask, and deeper understanding of what the Holy Spirit speaks.
This big ball of earth gushes what words cannot. Day and night God's handiwork pours forth artistry, creativity, perception, and affection. Boasting power and authority, sensitivity and beauty! In the surprise of wildflowers, the strength of a spinning spider, the tiniest bird whistling the most beautiful hymn, or the truest blue sky lifting our eyes upward. "From the blue expanse of heaven to the drop of dew, all things are full of teaching."–Charles Spurgeon.
Day Unto Day is a work of heart. Displaying the glories and sharing the milestones of growing, little by little, into the children God so loved us to be.
This could be the beginning of an everlasting friendship.
