Yesterday morning was busy with back to back eye and dental appointments. I am trying to squeeze in all my checkups while at home for a few days. I wanted to clean house and blog and pay bills etc. but instead I chose to drop over and see a friend. I felt like I had stepped into God's garden. Her yard was a masterpiece of love, filled with flowers, fountains, singing of birds and chimes ringing in the wind. We sat outside in the cool day and caught up.
I wasn't feeling that great and my mood was low because of news the dentist gave me, but her hubby brought me a hot cup of peppermint tea and she gave me her hearing heart.
One statement stayed with me for the rest of the day and this morning.
I look at the Bible as a whole as a love letter from God.
Maybe those aren't the exact words, but the meaning is clear. With that thought in mind, I opened my Bible this morning to Genesis 1 and Revelation 1, with purple pen in hand, marked verses or the chapter with a purple heart, standing for God's love toward me.
When I read Genesis 1 in this light, I saw a loving Father creating a beautiful earth with His child in mind. Even the day and the night. He didn't need sectioned days, but He knew that we would, for we would need to know the fresh start of "His new mercies every morning."
I left the pages of His word feeling loved this morning. I want to make this a regular practice.
Unrelated note: I missed blogging to connect with yesterdays pic on Wings Open. I couldn't find the time. I posted that pic in the dentist office waiting room. Aren't iPhones grand?
