Daily Dish: Mystery Pie
Days without the internet makes it hard to share a dish with you so I missed a few opportunities to sit and partake of a meal from the restaurant of revelations.
Too be honest with you, it may be too much for me to try and write every day anymore. At least for the time. I end up beating myself up for missing a few days. Then I try to think of ways to make up what I lacked so I am just going to give myself some grace and start over. Thankful for new beginnings.
2 My (Paul’s) goal is that they (you and me) may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they (you and me) may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they (you and me) may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Colossians 2:2-3 Emphasis added mine.
My son Daniel turned 11 today, and 11 years ago he was born with Transposition of the Great Arteries and the Dr. gave him a 50/50 chance to live. He had open heart surgery when he was born to fix his little heart. He is an amazing and healthy boy who has a heart for Jesus and His work in the kingdom. So thankful for my miracle baby. He encourages my heart everyday with his. His favorite dish is pie, so pie it was.
God has given me a wonderful family that has been uniting through a very rough season. It really is a mystery how God can turn the worst day into years of blessing. So as I go through what seems to be an eternity of endless worst days, I can be confident that the days are what Paul describes in 2 Corinthians 4,
17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
What a mystery indeed!
