Growing in Delight

If you wait at wisdom’s doorway,
longing to hear a word for every day,
joy will break forth within you as you listen for what I’ll say.

For the fountain of life pours into you every time that you find me,
and this is the secret of growing in the delight
and the favor of the Lord.

(Proverbs 8:34, 35 TPT)

 

A Gift

Sometimes you are out in the backyard taking photos of sweet peas and sheets on the clothesline just because the flowers smell wonderful and the warm sunlight and shifting shadows are interesting.

And then a hummingbird hovers in front of your lens just long enough to snap a shot.

Thank you, Lord. What a lovely gift.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

(James 1:17 NIV)
