Lakeside is a little valley that is saturated with God’s creative handiwork. Wistfully and eagerly I thank my Lord for His shining light of guidance, provision, promise and for bringing me another kindred spirit in Dawn. A sweet momma from Hawaii who sparkles with love for all. Joy without ceasing is possible as long as I am grateful without ceasing! For a time, we both dwell in a country that is inhabited by many veteran servants. My heart was again enlarged to encompass a new neighbor, Wendy from San Juan Tecomatlan. Our pueblos are joined by a wee distance and our pebbled beach recedes and becomes flush with ethereal shades of green bobbings and amazing possibilities for doing good.
Our Father knows our needs, and He is faithful to supply. There are many, many, many hearts and hands He could have chosen to bless me with, but in His wisdom my Lord chose to send me Dawn. We abide in Him, and He in us and for a time He placed us together on the edge of a body of water that shimmers incandescently under a February sky, painted by God. Anne with an E would certainly have agreed…..
that Chapala’s gigantic translucent pond should properly be renamed “the Lake of Shining Waters”. We are here for God’s purpose and that is to love one another. My mind is raptured into silent reverence as I consider ALL what Jesus hath prepared for those who love enormously. A Word that fits: Hallelujah and Praise be to God.
