I was surprised how loud I gasped when I saw the moon this morning. It was spectacular, large, reddish and almost full (tonight is full I think). It was only a brief glimpse as it was so close to the horizon; I had to drive out of my way to find another glimpse of it. Wow! What a great God!
On Tuesday, as our family was in the car on the way home, we were enjoying a beautiful evening sky (it had a tempestuous and wildly unsettled look to it); Haddon inquired why God made it like that. My reply was that He made it just for us to enjoy. If no one else in the world stopped to notice it, my family had amazement in our eyes as our “wows!” and “that’s so cool” were glorifying God and drawing the attention to Him. We do that with the sky and animal books and cool trees and ants and answered prayers.
Karsten and Haddon and Lincoln are my future men. Right now they have two primary jobs (they’ve always known the first one but the second one was formally added in September). Job #1 is to obey. Job #2 is to be sweet. We find these rules to be quite comprehensive.
Chrissy and I have jobs too in our family, and one of our primary jobs is to “in all our ways acknowledge Him.” We find this rule to be quite comprehensive, too.
