He is Exalted!

I took this photo when we were on vacation in Wyoming last year. This was shot through the Chapel of Transfiguration in Grand Teton National Park.

Somehow this picture reminds me to see the Lord exalted. Often, we focus on the death of our Lord and while this is important to remember -- because through his sacrifice -- we are saved and we are healed -- but our Lord is risen and He is indeed exalted. He is seated on the throne of heaven and his work is finished.

When we focus on the Lord exalted, our entire perspective changes. The truth of the scripture is revealed in us -- If God is for us, who can be against us? Greater is He that is in you, then he that is in the world.

God is greater and more able to handle anything that concerns me today. But only if I trust him as exalted King, Lord of Lords and King of Kings. If I give him first place in my life, everything will fall into it's proper place. And, that means that I will be in my total submission to Him and sitting at his feet, worshipping Him as my King.

Awana Closing Ceremonies

Another dreadful picture of me. This was at our Awana closing ceremony -- handing out awards for a "job well done!"

A Mother's Love

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappoints
And calm all of our fears.
There are times when only a Mother's love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we've dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a Mother's faith
Can help us on life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith
And a Mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above...
