To close out this season of doxologies, I have to return to God's greatest gift to me (other than Christ)…my girls! Tonight's doxology moment was like compounded interest (Go Dawn!). Here is what I mean…our church made arrangements for my family to spend time together in a Chalet at Guntersville State Park. This meant that we would have to spend time at a meal and in a different sleeping arrangement than usual...that meant communication.
We spent time talking-unheard of today as they age rapidly into young adulthood. Tonight's meal was as it was suppose to be…laughter and conversation. Although this was the greatest earthly experience of my Lenten Season…what I am about to share speaks to our theological need.
The heart of my doxology moment came moments later. When the Sun hid just below the horizon, and the blinds were raised. This meant that someone was eagerly watching God at work, and the moment my girls heard the blinds being raised they stretched to see the Sun…a truly reflective doxology moment.
In the church world we look for those that stretch to see God at work. The excitement is irreplaceable. The problem comes when the church cannot replace what they feel is God's greatest productivity - Grace! What if everyone in the church stood and reached to see the glory of God's work? What if half would be so willing?
I close out this Lenten season with a picture that almost brings to close all my thoughts, joys, and tears…but, really the sun must set to rise again. So, we'll see where God is tomorrow as we celebrate God's Son and His connection with the Sunrise. God is good…the way that I know...is because I see God in each of you! Happy Easter!
