Thoughtful Thursdays--Don't forget to grab a button and put it on your blog!!!!
There are many thoughts that I could share this morning but I am not sure I can put them all on paper because they would seem so mixed up and scrambled. I'll try and may have to have 2 post for today. The brain is just working OVERTIME!!!!!!
First- I have 2 VERY special people getting married this morning in New York in Central Park on one of the small bridges. Is that romantic or what!!!!???? He picked out the music and made the CD. She is going to be dressed like no other woman this morning at 10am and he will have on a tux @ 10am. These are 2 people that I have watched for many years. Debbie I have know since I moved here almost 20 years ago and him, since he came to work at our office 5 years ago. They have both been through more that anyone can imagine and yet, through His timing He has brought them together. Reminds me of a butterfly. When you think about it, they start out as a caterpillar. Kaleb would call it a worm. Anyway, this thing with to many legs, sometimes prickly, sometimes ugly, brown, creepy, crawly finds it's way into a tree and onto a branch. It begins it's busy work of creating that cocoon. There it sits. Do you ever wonder what goes on in there? Does all of that recreating hurt? Is it painful? What really happens in there? Then if you watch closely when it's close to time for it to emerge, the cocoon starts twitching, moving, shaking on the branch. You would almost think it is about to fall off but He keeps it safe and keeps it on the branch. Then in the smallest of movements, there is one antenna sticking out. Then another. Then a head and legs and then these HUGE wings. And the MOST BEAUTIFUL butterfly emerges. Stretching its wings. Trying them out for the very first time. It has become a NEW creation. The old, yucky, many-legged caterpillar is GONE!!!!! Never to be seen again!!!!! Now, I am sure that if you got VERY close and REALLY inspected this new creation, the eyes may be close, and you may see some resemblance BUT IT IS A NEW CREATION!!!!!!! That is what I think about with these 2 people. They have experienced the ugly. The prickly. The many-legged worm so to speak. They have spent time in a cocoon. They have spent time in that cocoon with THE LORD!!!! Today, on a bridge in New York City at 10am they both will meet on that bridge emerging from their cocoon a NEW CREATION. A NEW CREATION OF ONE BODY, ONE MIND AND ONE SPIRIT. They have been in the cocoon and have experienced the transforming power of the Lord Himself. They are new people and today, they will become a new family. I am having a hard time typing because I had rather be on the floor in humbleness and praising the Lord. The tears are burning my eyes and I'm just sooooo thankful. So excited!!!! So in awe of the Lord and watching Him do what He does!!!!!! OH PRAISE YOU!!!!!!!
Chucky D and Debbie- HAPPY WEDDING DAY!!!!!!!! Love you both so much!!!!!!!
Well, time for work. Can't be late. This is His Day and I will Rejoice in it!!!!!
There will be more to follow!!!!!!
Laboring with You,
