CAN'T SEE THE FOREST BECAUSE OF THE TREES

Landscape in Oil by Laurie Justus Pace

15 x 30 inches

Yesterday was a blessed day of no stress. I have not had one of these plateau days in eons! Both Terry and I dropped to knees at bedtime and gave thanks. I had agreed once I blogged before Church, no computer till after six and no work in the studio. WOW. We were at 8:30 services at Eastridge Christian and then Sunday School following. Jack VanVessem was wonderful and totally on track as we continued investigating the phrase "Being Reborn of the Water and The Spirit."

Then Charlene sent me the following after I shared the lesson with her:

One Child Baptizing Another

After a hardy rainstorm filled all the potholes in the streets and alleys, a young mother watched her two little boys playing in the puddle through her kitchen window. The older of the two, a five year old, grabbed his sibling by the back of his head and
shoved his face into the water hole.

As the boy recovered and stood laughing and dripping, the mother ran to the yard in a
panic. "Why on earth did you do that to your little brother?" she shouted as she shook the older boy in anger. "We were just playing church mommy," he said. "And I was just baptizing him in the name of the Father, the Son and ... in the hole-he-goes."


May your Monday be filled with His light!

Grace,
Laurie

"I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me will come one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire." Matthew 3:11
