Unfathomable depth of love!
May all the universe acknowledge
That Thou art King and Lord above.
(Zion's Harp #73)
We had a wonderful night last evening as a church (hence the table arrangement pic from my dad and mom's retirement dinner) in which the ardent flames of Christ's love were manifest!

Thanks to all who selflessly serve in so many places, lowly and great. The Lord is your reward.

I love fall! And this year we've been blessed with an abundance of those wonderful clear, crisp, cool days. Among the delights of a climate with distinct seasons is the quarterly reminder that God has promised that the seasons will continue "while the earth remains". Enjoy!

Then along comes the news today that my little girl Julie was accepted to Illinois State University! More than enough reason. Congratulations, Julie--I love you!

I love a good zoom lens. So functional for bringing up close an unsuspecting subject. But what's really fascinating is that when you zoom in on God's creation, the complexity never gets fuzzy. It's crystal clear and ever more beautiful as you discover the never-ending patterns.

Which of the stones from the iconic Altgeld Hall could safely be removed before the tower would fall? Good question to ask when we start assuming the things we think are unnecessary can be forsaken. Maybe someone older remembers why the stones were placed in the first place.
Yes, I realize things can and do change in any organization. Maybe that's why it's so important we understand the difference between principles and rules. We must understand the principles, doctrine, etc. if we are ever to know which stones must stay fast and be shored up.

Dayspring isn't a term we use anymore but I understand it to mean the rising sun. How appropriate that old Zechariah would prophesy that his son, John the Baptist, would prepare the way for this "dayspring from on high", Jesus Christ.
There something in a beautiful sunrise that gladdens the soul with the promise of a fresh and unspoiled day. It's even more beautiful to link this explosion of color with God's tender mercy towards us.

This image is literally of the Alma Mater from my Alma Mater, the University of Illlinois where two of our sons now attend. And, in recent days, our daughter has decided to attend Cindy's Alma Mater, Illinois State University. Plenty of warm feelings to go around these days!
