Magic on the Porch

Charming and I were doing devotions on the front porch this morning. It was fairly quiet--not a lot of traffic, but we could hear several kinds of birds about their morning duties. We were fascinated by the shadows cast by our spirea bush, which is sporting tiny new leaves (finally!)

Notice that some of the shadows are smudgy, and seem in the background behind the more clearly "drawn," darker ones. And here I always thought that shadows were two-dimensional. God is more creative than that, fer sure!

We went on to discuss the different shadows cast at different times of day, and different times of the year. And the fact that God chose to create shadows at all. It was really neat to find this little picture painted by the Lord, while we were discussing His word.

Our verse this morning was so wonderful--Hebrews 13:20-21:

"May the God of peace...equip you wih everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ."

This is a prayer I can pray for all of my children, and for myself as well. It was truly "magic" on the porch this Saturday morning.
