Look what God made!

Thanks, Cousin Alan, for not "neglecting your gifts" and for capturing this breathtaking view of the Rockies. Speaking of gifts, my younger friend, Jacob, can preach! I'm still "chewing" on the word he gave last Sunday. He recounted his demanding experience of climbing Pike's Peak and his growing frustration as a 45 year old passed him by several times. Jacob shared God's word to him when he finally reached the top: 'You think the 45 year old has accomplished something? Look out and see what I created! Now that's an accomplishment!' He reminded us that God isn't impressed with our accomplishments, but is more concerned with our desire to have relationship with Him as well as glorify Him. I'm always struggling with this desire to accomplish something of importance. What a word of wisdom for me.

My young friends are teaching me everyday. They bring refreshing insight as I journey with my Lord. My encouragement to you today......
