Can you imagine what these two are up to?
Why, they are astronauts traveling through space, of course. They've got on their helmets and their protective suits, complete with packs (pillows up their sweaters). They even have their space shuttle steering wheel neabry (the exercise wheel next to Luke's hand.) And, most importantly, they have their imaginations.
How I marvel everyday lately at the adventures the kids' imaginations take us on! And how I reflect on what incredible genius the Lord has in gifting each us with our own distinct creativity. Still further, what inspiration I find in Ephesians 3:20: "Glory belongs to God, whose power is at work in us. By this power he can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine."
Infinitely more than my two older kids can imagine? That is something. It is something I am very, very grateful for. Something that fills me with hope and happiness and moves me with a desire to give a shout out today:
Thank you, Lord, for the snippets of imagination I witness everyday in my vocation as a mother. Moreover, thank you for the infinite power with which You work in each of us. May we all remember to let You work through us, giving You the glory.
