An exploration of the wide, expansive nature of God through the study of scripture.
"This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It's adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike "What's next, Papa?" Romans 8:15
I finally can get around El Paso (well to familiar places) without my GPS! However the other day while driving to the church I missed my turn and I realized it just as I was passing the street. Even when we know how to get somewhere if we ignore the signs we won't get there the way we had planned to. Which made me think about John the Baptist crying out in the wilderness to prepare the way for the coming of the Lord. If we do not take time each day to be open to God's direction through prayer, reading our Bibles, and through conversations with other Christians we too might miss the signs God is giving us, that God has prepared for us. May we all be aware and alert.
This week was full of anticipation, beginning with putting up our Christmas tree. When we began my son asked "is it Christmas today?" Then on Monday we got snow! Beautiful big flakes in downtown. My children could hardly stand it Monday night (we had not gotten snow on the west side). The following morning we woke up to a couple of inches on our lawn. Everyone in the family was so excited to see and play in the snow. It helped us all get into the "Christmas spirit." And we are anticipating Christmas day, as we take time each day to talk about the meaning behind the season. Blessings, Leslie
