People have commented lately about my faith. It’s both a gift and an ongoing choice. It’s a gift you have to choose to unwrap every day – sometimes every hour. Will you leave it sitting on the table looking pretty? Or open it up – knowing you’ll likely spill something on it or lose it in the laundry or leave it in the car… But also knowing that the next time you turn around, there it will be, brand new, sitting on the table again, wrapped and waiting for you to discover what’s inside.
I had a long post sitting in my head today and wasn’t sure if I’d be able to articulate it well. Then I stopped by another blog and there it was, waiting for me. So instead of reinventing this particular wheel, I’ll just pass you on to a friend.
