HIS PLEASURE, HIS PURPOSE
All things were created in Him, by Him and for Him. Colossians 1:16
Thanks to the incredible gift of imagination, given only to human kind, we have minds to take us to the past, present, and future.
Today I imagine the award winning 1946 Jeep my special friend, the late David Tucker built up from a pile of junk.
Today I imagine my 19-year-old grandchild in the play, ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE. I first saw this as a kid. Jimmy Stewart was my favorite. Next week the Crowell-Ferch families travel to Oklahoma City to see Natalya star in this amazing production.
Today I imagine my young 6’10” hero, Drew Sears, hauling down rebounds, blocking shots and scoring in double digits as the Whitworth Pirates lay a big one on Whitman. I will be there. Yes!
Imagination is a gift. Our charge is to use it well.
Today I read Paul’s famous words, “The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.” Colossians 1:15-16
Gratitude reigns supreme in my spirit as I imagine the Creator of the Universe; the one who holds all things together created my loved ones for His purpose and His pleasure.
As I experience the grandeur and beauty, I relish in knowing the Sea of Cortez, the flora and fauna and people were all created for our purpose and pleasure.
There goes a bright yellow butterfly.
Check out this amazing orange flower.
Look at the generous smile on the worker hanging Christmas tree lights.
All for His purpose and his pleasure. All for us to enjoy.
Imagine, He created us for his purpose and His pleasure.
