ummmm....yeah, i just noticed that it was thanksgiving that i last posted....sad, sad, sad! but today i won't dwell on that. i am rejoicing! it is only 7:20 and my time this morning has been so full (spirit filled!) quiet time, communion and a little run....even through in a shower!
it was wonderful running this morning watching the sunrise! it made me think of something a friend of mine said this week. we had been talking about our recent trip to maui and how the sunshine was just so wonderful (how good it was for our bodies...our mood). we then talked about how winter time is hard here because you just aren't able to get out as much. she proceeded to tell me how she needed the sun. as the words came from her mouth i felt the holy spirit smack me in the face...."did you just hear what she said?" she needs the sun....we need the "son!" we NEED the Son, not just an occasional dose, but an everyday, every minute, every second dose of the Son! He nourishes our mind, body and spirit. His love in unconditional, He never leaves us or forsakes us, He holds us in His right hand.....i want that, i need that!
today watching the sunrise, i celebrate the "Son" who is risen, to shine his light so that all may see....His presence, His love, His beauty....His gift! wow, i am truly blessed to be able to experience that love on a daily basis, all because God loved me so much that He sent his one and only son so that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have life everlasting. praise God! thank you for the cross...thank you for your resurrection! celebrating "life" everlasting today ;-)...an empty tomb!
