I don’t own a diamond. But I’ve admired them on other fingers, and beyond their enchanting sparkle, their facets are fascinating. Look from a different angle, move toward or away from the light, and new patterns and depths emerge. Agape love, the first fruit of the Spirit, is like that.
From my heart to yours
I do believe I have let the fire go out. But there is plenty of wood to rebuild it, for which blessing I’m REALLY grateful, as the temperature is plummeting again. May God bless you as we move from January into February, a little closer to Spring!
Serving our sweet Savior,
