His.

"We are God's idea.

We are His.

His eyes.

His face.

His hands.

Miscreduced
His touch.

We are Him.


Look deeply into the face of every human being on earth, and you will see His likeness. Though some appear to be distant relatives, they are not. God has no cousins, only children."

-Max Lucado, A Gentle Thunder

  2. Lovely. I love that your family and mine reflect that "every tribe, language, and tongue" thing. A true foretaste of heaven--the beauty of God's incomparable creativity and imagination in making each of us.

  13. I love the photos...the older man, the women working, and especially the look of love on your face as you embrace your child. Such a sweet reminder of the love He has for His children...yet, it doesn't even compare, does it? Oh, so glad to know that kind of love!

  14. 'Tis true. Every time my life gets difficult, I have to remember to give my worries and my fear over to God, for we are his children, he is our Father, and he will make things right.

  16. I need to read that book again. It turned my world upside down the first time I read it (I think I was in high school--maybe early college?).

  21. I LOVE the picture of you and the babe.

    What a beautiful post. Sometimes we get so caught up in life to realize the world He made for us. We see all the pain and sadness and ugliness in the world that we forget to see the beauty it gives us.

  22. We are all made in His image and likeness. And "all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
