My son who joined our family through adoption celebrates his tenth birthday this February. Looking into his chocolate brown eyes, I’m still in awe of how God touched my heart through adoption.
I once lived, moved and breathed right smack in the heart of the biblical parable of the lost sheep, albeit contextualized for Colorado Springs, Colorado. Now, in these parts, at least in the city, we don’t herd many sheep; but we have cliffs, frigid winter nights, and hungry predators.
IMAGINE the Possibilities! Strive for GRACE! Stand TALL! NEVER give up on the things you care passionately about! Don’t be afraid to put down ROOTS! LOVE!
The Kingdom of God is like a baker whose job it is to bake and supply bread daily for his community. The baker bakes just enough bread for each day because any excess will be stale and will not be good or enjoyable.
