when undone is good


guess what? my brother took this photo!
he's the photographer for this blog....
we traveled east down our mountain into an autumn sunrise,
leaves turned sun-golden
frost hiding in shadows
i drove
while husband studied notes
for his sermon
he filled a pulpit this sabbath
and we dressed up
and we greeted
and he brought words
about god's
goodness
righteousness
wrath
mercy
and i am undone
by this mercy
and i am undone
by this man's love
and i am undone

continuing to count my gifts to 1000 -

391. husband so wise
392. girl, the one i mentor, so willing to listen to her savior

  1. The race I ran today was called Run for the Water. They raise money to bring clean water to a specific part in Africa. It's amazing to be a part of it!

  2. Undone by the love on the page here. Thank you for giving the way you do. And for receiving love with such grace. This, perhaps, teaches even more.

  5. It happens that way sometimes, doesn't it? And the "undoing" takes me by surprise every time.

  6. When I really take the time to think, it is truly overwhelming. God has given me so many gifts.

    I especially love reading about the girl you mentor! :)

  9. We really are undone when God's love overwhelms us, aren't we? It often is unexpected when it happens. What a touching post!
