come quickly

It only took 7 weeks to get a picture of our family of four! But I am pleased with the result. Thanks Becky for taking it!

A new year means a time for reflection for many people. I reflect a lot, not just today or at the beginning of the new year. I have enjoyed reflecting on all that God has done for us, not just this past year but always. I have written many times about God's provision in our lives and all the things I am grateful for. And as I reflect on it all, I just have to say...

Come quickly Lord Jesus!

My heart aches for so many people who are hurting now. My heart rejoices with others who are rejoicing right now. And in all the joys and trials, I anxiously await for Christ's return. His day of return is closer than ever. Of course we don't know when that is, but we're always one day closer to it. :)

We found an old Selah cd as we were cleaning things out, and here is one of my absolute favorites by them (seriously listened to this song only on repeat many days driving to school in the States)...so fitting.

One day eyes that are blind will see you clearly
And one day all who deny will finally believe
One day hearts made of stone will break in pieces
And one day chains once unbroken will fall down at your feet
So we wait for that one day come quickly

We want to see your Glory
Every knee falls down before thee
Every tongue offers you praise
With every hand raised
Singing Glory
To you and unto you only
We'll sing Glory to Your name

One day voices that lie will all be silent
One day all that's divided will be whole again
One day death will retreat and wave it's white flag
One day love will defeat the strongest enemy
So we wait for that one day come quickly

We know not the day or the hour
Or the moments in between
But we know the end of the story
When we'll see

shouldn't we have at least straightened the star on the tree? Fail.
