It’s Friday. I now look forward to this Five Minute Friday challenge with Lisa-Jo to write five minutes on a topic with many others around the globe. I stole five minutes this morning after my shower while my hair was still wet and wrapped in a towel and scribbled down this post, but had to come back later to throw in some pictures and links.
The prompt for this week is: Wonder
‘The wonder of His love.’
I sang these words just last night.
I went home. Back home to the Church I grew up in; to the people. I went back for a ‘Ladies Night Out’.
After a dinner of tacos and reading our first ‘Jesse Tree Journey’ devotional for this season, I took my daughter and we drove almost an hour for this Christmas Ladies Night Out that involved chocolate, in fact, we made truffles. Oooh, chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. It was goooooooood!
I facebooked an old friend late last night after she had posted a picture and made the comment on her photo: ’It was a wonderful night!’
Not just the chocolate. The people ~ women who held me as a babe, prayed for my wee body to be rid of cancer, friends I ran around the subway with 22 years ago on a youth group adventure, friends I have swelled with promise and grown babies with, women I have broken bread with, my own Mom, and my daughter.
The wonder of it all.
The message we were left to ponder. Oh, the slack-jaw wonder of this season that love has come down that we might have joy.
In His presence there is fullness of joy. And in this season of ‘Come, Lord Jesus’ that we might stop and take in the wonder of it all; that' ‘Joy to the world the Lord has come’.
That we might seek Him and find Him and love Him.
Oh, the wonder of His love!
