Grandchild: “Oh, I sure am happy to see you, Gramma! Now maybe Daddy will do the trick he promised!”
Grandmother: “What trick is that, dear?”
Grandchild: “I heard him tell Mommy that he would climb the walls if you came to visit again!”
Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, “Where’s the ceiling?!”
Thought for the day
But if we live in the light, as God is in the light, we can share fellowship with each other. Then the blood of Jesus, God’s Son, cleanses us from every sin. If we say we have no sin, we are fooling ourselves, and the truth is not in us. (1 John 1:7-8 NCV)
The world thinks intimacy occurs in the dark, but God says it happens in the light. We tend to use darkness to hide our hurts, faults, fears, failures and flaws. But in the light, we bring them all out into the open and admit who we really are.
Of course, being authentic requires both courage and humility. It means facing our fear of exposure, rejection and being hurt again.
