Daily Bread - Luke 15:11-32

Daily Bread

Title: Lost, no longer
Luke 15:11-32

Just a sun to light the way
To places where my friends turn to strangers
On    a    long,    long    empty    road."

It's so easy to become lost. Yet, God has mercy on us and waits eagerly for us to turn back to Him. If we do, he won't even let us get to the door -- He will run out to meet us and greet us with an embrace!! He doesn't sit at home and mock. He doesn't sit at home and condemn. He waits with a heart of love... I think 2 Peter 3:9 explains this very clearly.

I forgot that the son in this parable actually confesses to His father in verse 21. Did you see the father's reaction, though? He didn't (like I might) say, "Well, yes son, you know, that was a lot of money you wasted on wild living, but...I guess I forgive you." No, the father said this: "But the father said to his servants, 'Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let's have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.' So they began to celebrate." God gives grace and then glory freely and joyfully to those who ask!!

One Word: Come home
Light of the window


I am done with this semester!! \^__^/

How did I celebrate? With a very long nap...^^ Tonight I will attend the prayer meeting and then will commence cleaning ops on my room. I am very excited. I am also very drowsy.

Today I saw two yellow finches taking a bath in the creek and paper jellyfish hanging from the ceiling of the Union Building. After eating lunch, I walked back to my apartment and sat on a big stone by the creek. I watched the scenery for a while, but then I got cold and went inside.

I got some news from home that was bitter-sweet. When I go home, I can now go cuddle the cats Creamsicle (aka Dot) and Alice all I want. The reason I can do this is because my old grumpy one-eyed cat passed away and won't claw at us. My grandmother found her in the old dog house sleeping a few weeks ago. She was probably over 14 years old. :(

I plan to post about Melchizedek and Levi sometime soon, but right now I am too rushed and sleepy to do a good job. Maybe I will wait until after I read the play Athelie.

Wow, there's so much to do!
