Today’s thought – Wagons Laden

apr11 012One more beautiful iris from Grandma Crain’s garden.

Good Morning

I’ve been pretty sick the past week
(only knit a little on two days),
but feeling better.

Genesis 45:27 And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto them: and
when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived:

A very simple sight: just some farm wagons laden with corn–
food for the staving household.
It was these wagons turning into the courtyard
that raised the fast-falling hopes of Jacob expectancy.
They remind me of other wagons laden
and sent by another One greater than Joseph,
even our Lord Jesus Christ.
These wagons of His are a great stimulus to our faith.
They come unseen to us in our hours of darkness —
when our hopes are dashed to the ground.
Yes,
when we are in the awful grips of spiritual starvation,
how blessed are these wagons as they are seen approaching!

Lift up your eyes!
Look out for them:
When they come they will not be empty!
You will be fed and nourished
with the choicest of His stores.

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits.”

On the porch looking . . .Today

With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
