God's good gifts...

Our words for the day, on a journey of enrichment and discovery with wee worshipers:
God's good gifts

The Word was opened carefully and the verses read aloud.  This message from the Eternal One, offering abundance and fulfillment.  These precious words to those without pennies to pay.  An invitation to experience richness.

If you are thirsty, come here;
        come, there’s water for all.
    Whoever is poor and penniless can still
        come and buy the food I sell.
    There’s no cost—here, have some food, hearty and delicious,
        and beverages, pure and good.
I don’t understand why you spend your money for things that don’t nourish
        or work so hard for what leaves you empty.
    Attend to Me and eat what is good;
        enjoy the richest, most delectable of things.
Isaiah 55:1-2

We shared about nourishing things to eat and thirst-quenching things to drink.

We talked about places to go and explore, the fun things we do with our families.  About other signs of the coming joy of Easter in our homes.

And then we looked out the wind-chilled windowpanes at God's good gifts of Spring... blooming flowers, sprouting herbs and veggies, and lush green leaves.

Lush herbs ready for planting
 God's good gifts are all around.  
And the smallest of the faithful 
help us to see them with fresh eyes...
