Love You Forever

There is a wonderful children's story about a mother who rocks her child to sleep with the words, "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living, my baby you'll be."

If you haven't had the chance to read the story before, the it can be read online here.

I've been thinking about that story lately. A mother's persistent love is just like God's love for us. I have a feeling that a devotion will be coming out of this...that is usually what happens when I get one of these things stuck in my head.

May you be blessed and refreshed the rest of this Lord's day.

Daylight Savings Grumpies

I will admit it - I'm one of those people who doesn't think the time change is a good thing. It throws off my sleep for a couple weeks after the change.

But it is more than that this year. What will work right, since it starts three weeks earlier? Many software patches, all kinds of problems. Just for an hour change in time.

What I want to know.....Why can't we just pick one or other time and stay on it year round?

I recently returned back from a trip to New Hampshire, and was struck by the beauty present in the mountains there. Spending time in worship one night in the quiet stillness there, I heard in my head the words from Psalm 84:

O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer;

Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah
O God, behold our shield,
And look upon the face of Your anointed.
For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
The LORD will give grace and glory;
No good thing will He withhold
From those who walk uprightly.
O LORD of hosts,
Blessed is the man who trusts in You!

Thank you Father, for hearing the prayer of my heart. You have shown me a vision of what is still to come, and I am in awe of Your glory.
