Rays of love
I took the image above with my phone early Tuesday morning. "God rays", as I call them, seem to put me at ease, put a smile on my face and seem to urge me to slow down and appreciate life around me. A lot for these little rays, huh?
I see them as a tangible hug from the Big Man. A feeling, I hate to admit, I don't always feel or take the time to feel.
These seemed to come at an interesting time as we just visited a new church on Sunday. I have struggled with my feelings of church and what I need or get out of a Sunday morning ritual. I came away from the service on Sunday feeling opened. Probably a strange word to use, but I felt open to what the Pastor was saying and open to this non-traditional church that I didn't think would speak to me. Well, it did and I am excited about going again on Sunday.
And although John might not admit it, he might be slightly looking forward to it as well. I mean, come on, some people were in shorts and flip flops...if that isn't John, I don't know what is.
