My 13-year-old son and I have a difference in perspective..

I guess that goes without saying (all you moms of teenagers can just nod your heads).

As I uploaded these photos my son took  I was struck with how unique God made each of us.

We are all created and gifted by the Maker of the universe.

Our history and experience shape how we look at life.

Yet God doesn’t look at us any differently.

In spite of ourselves, he loves us.

Beyond measure and without merit.

 

My Simple Gift to you this Sunday:  “how can I thank You and what can I bring? What can a poor man lay at the feet of a king?  So I’ll sing You a love song, it’s all that I have to tell You I’m grateful for holding my life in Your hands.”

You are Good

When the sun starts to rise and I open my eyes
You are good, so good
In the heat of the day with each stone that I lay
You are good, so good

With every breath I take in
I’ll tell You I’m grateful again
When the moon rises high before each kiss goodnight
You are good

When the road starts to turn around each bend I’ve learned
You are good, so good
And when somebody’s hand holds me up, helps me stand
You are so good

With every breath I take in
I’ll tell You I’m grateful again
‘Cause it’s more than enough just to know I am loved
And you are good

So how can I thank You
And what can I bring
What can a poor man lay at the feet of a king

So I’ll sing you a love song
It’s all that I have
To tell You I’m grateful
For holding my life in Your hands

When it’s dark and it’s cold and I can’t feel my soul
You are still good
When the world has gone gray and the rain’s here to stay
You are still good

With every breath I take in
I’ll tell you I’m grateful again
And the storm may swell even then it is well
You are good

So how can I thank You
And what can I bring
What can a poor man lay at the feet of a king
So I’ll sing you a love song
It’s all that I have
To tell You I’m grateful
For holding my life in Your hands
