The Morning Chat
Good morning family,
I am sure that you can relate to Evan Morgan who wrote the following in April 24th's Daily Bread reading:
I was deeply troubled and woke in the night to pace the floor and pray.
Frankly, my attitude was not one of prayerful submission to God, but one of questioning and anger.
Finding no release, I sat and stared out a large window at the night sky.
I was unexpectedly drawn to focus on Orion's Belt---those three perfectly arranged stars often visible on clear nights.
I knew just enough about astronomy to understand that those three stars were hundreds of light years apart.
I realized the closer I could be to those stars, the less they would appear to be aligned.
Yet from my distant perspective, they looked carefully configured in the heavens.
At that moment, I realized I was too close to my life to see what God sees.
In His big picture, everything is in perfect alignment.
David was so clear when he stated: " Even before there is a word on my tongue, behold oh Lord, you know it all. You have enclosed me behind and before, and laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;... (Psalm 139:4-6)
May you be reminded the God knows the BIG picture concerning your life, and yet is loving you through the smallest details of your life TODAY!
May His many blessings overwhelm you with joy,
On a lighter note, I was talking today to a mom who has younger children. They all wanted to the park yesterday and when she told them they could not, they were really upset. She suggested that they write letters to Premier Ford. The following are their letters. I know that they will make you smile. As you will note, her one daughter is in kindergarten and her other daughter is in Grade One.
