Five Minute Friday with Lisa Jo. Today’s word: beautiful. (Although, obviously, today is Saturday, I did write this on Friday.)
And I’ve not been looking for “beautiful” this week — I’ve been focused on “needy,” forgetting that beauty is a need, that needs can be beautiful.
Thirteen hours driving south and east, and thunderstorms every afternoon, and here the soil is sand instead of clay, and it’s a different kind of wet on my feet.
We’re here to care for a patient who is recovering, and we’re encouraging her to drink, keeping her glass full of water, of Gatorade, of fruit juice.
Does God look at my faint-heartedness and diagnoses a spiritual dehydration? He fills my glass with living waters from the stream that makes glad the city of God.
And this water that meets my need is beautiful.
