In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. John 1:1-2
Don't you just love how the book of John opens? Victoria Leigh is writing an outline and a thesis statement for a paper. It's like the thesis statement of the book of John is in the first two verses. The awesomeness of thinking that when the beginning began, the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Next week I'm going to tuck Acts 1:8 in my heart:
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth. Acts 1:8 (NASB)
All the way home from worship, Victoria Leigh told us all about the sweet and adorable babies that she helped care for in the nursery at church. She was so excited about each and every baby in the nursery, I was convinced that we attend The Church with all The Sweetest babies gracing the nursery. She could have sold tickets to allow people to just come by and take a peek at these darlin's with her delicious descriptions. The telling of sweet details of their expressions when they woke up, their precious names, all about their blankies and diaper bags continued through lunch and by the time we arrived at a baby shower the teens and I were invited to on Sunday afternoon, I had baby fever. BAD. But me oh my, my fever subsided with this darlin' baby that we were celebrating. Oh my, he is darlin'. And I love the sweet look on Audra's face as she just soaked him in while his mama opened gifts and his daddy recorded them. I thought that was sweet - I'd never heard of a proud papa doing that and it just blessed my heart.The baby shower was the perfect occasion to use some sheets from the treasure box of vintage paper I found at a small shop in a nearby town. It delighted my heart when the new mama told me she loved the paper and didn't want to tear it so she could keep it - oh, little things delight me!
