Les and I brought back a momento of our weekend together. It's a suncatcher embellished with fruit and a checkerboard edging...encircled with these words:
Simple but profound words from 1 Corinthians, and a wonderful reminder of what God has given us! It's hanging in front of the window in our dining area. As the light shines through it, it comes to life, the colours are rich and full. Once it is dark out though, it doesn't shine the same, but the same truth is told by it, and its beauty can still be seen when we take the time to look. What a fitting metaphor for our lives and our love. When we each let God's love shine through us, it sparkles, but even when we're having a difficult day, the truth is still there to be seen when you look for it...and it'll still shine, if you let it:)
This momento is a precious reminder of the amazing, loving man God has given me who I love even more than I ever thought I could love (and the romantic weekend we just had).... and also a precious reminder of our glorious God who is LOVE and teaches us how to love!
