The Color of Stop

Young working eyes notice Daddy and Mommy wearing the same color shirt
Test driving a minivan
A borrowed dress

All these in one day: the color red.

Red, the color of stop.

God of eternity gives these everywhere stop signs and reminds me to stop, right here in time. Slow... stop, and fully receive each moment from him.

It's happening. As I slow, time slows! When I stop, to wonder and receive in faith, I gain time. I receive all the fullness and richness of the gifts of a God who just can't stop giving.

As I stop to receive moments, the gifts pile up... grace upon grace upon grace. "From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another" (John 1:16).

This is write in such an intentional way that I find I have to "stop" and really focus on the beauty of your words. No hasty reading here! So glad your blog is going public!
