Snap shots of His grace.............
So thankful for these girls of mine who gave a week of their lives for these precious children of God.............
The Best Camp in the World.................."RAINBOW EXPRESS."
"Mommy, God gave me my twin!!!!! She and I are so much alike!!!!" "We even have the same personality etc." "Then I noticed looking around that God gave all of us our twins".....Isn't God amazing......This precious child is named "Julia."
In this program the teens are learning what it means to bend the lower.
Every year for one week Matthews United Methodist Church host "Rainbow Express."
High-School and College kids train for months on Sunday nights to meet the requirements to be a counselor.
Only certain ones are chosen for this.......my girls and I held our breath praying and hoping that they would be able to participate. It was the highlight of our summer!
These teens bend......... to wipe faces that drool.......they bend to change diapers of children who are older than them....they hold ones having spasms....they speak for the ones who can't speak........they don't eat their lunch until their new friends eat first..... they hold each others hands to pray before meals and their hearts split wide open with love.
These teens radiated His nature.........dying to their-selves.....coming to Him only to serve.
This is the first principle in the Kingdom of God, that most of us "adults," will never get.
The doorway to the Kingdom was opened this week......"blessed are the pure in heart," for they shall see God.
At the end of everyday we sing praises to the King. We tell them stories of a heavenly king that was born a pauper and how He did the unthinkable to die for you and me..
I stare out into the crowd as I have seen God everywhere to watch these teens give so self-lessly.
The tears that sting my eyes as I stand in awe of His Glory.......knowing that I came to be the nurse but got so much more in return.....I whisper thanks again and again for the way this experience has blessed me...... for I learned from them......the tears start to fall and joy overflows..."I saw God today," in each and everyone of their precious faces.
I sit here today me in my me-ism little world amazed that I was given an opportunity to share a story such as this. Knowing that the lower we bend the more we will see.
Witnessing the here and the now..........the sight of His glory.
An awakening to my very soul...........as my heart cries out over and over again; "thank you Lord."
No-where does He leave himself without witness.............even the rocks will cry out "Holy, Holy, is the Lord God Almighty."
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. (Romans 1:20)
all of grace,
