About Facing Glory

I am learning that it takes time to see God's glory. It is always there, but when I write I tend to look for it more. And so I write this blog. It's simple, thoughtful and a glimpse of the journey I'm on. I enjoy hearing your ideas, so comment freely.
Love, Lindsay

Thomas Moore : To live ordinary life artfully is to have this sensibility about the things in daily life, to live more intuitively and to be willing to surrender a measure of our rationality and control in return for gifts of the soul.

Metamorphoo


This is the Greek word that means to transform. It is clearly the root from which we derive our English word metamorphosis which describes what happens to a caterpillar that changes into a butterfly. What previously inched along the ground in mud and dirt, now soars heavenward in freedom of flight.
............................................................................................................................

To be perfectly honest, I think I will be processing the past three days for quite a long time. I like to keep my words simple and short. My brevity is not meant to lighten the intensity of what has happened.

On Thanksgiving I learned that I was accepted to Texas Women's DPT program for next August. My momma cried.

The next day, I learned that my Granny would not live much longer. We rushed to San Marcos. I spent some time holding her hand. I was able to tell her I was going to be a physical therapist and she was happy for me. She said, 'Lindsay, you are going to help so many people. So many people.' After a strange and unsettled night we all told Granny Dot goodbye for the last time.

You never know how you will feel in a situation like this. I do know that being there was a gift. I have no fears for her. You know, she is rejoicing. Just like that little caterpillar couldn't wait to get its wings, I know that she is elated as Jesus Christ has given her new clothes of immortality. Her broken earthly body is no longer needed as her heavenly body will be her new home. Death has been swallowed up in victory. (1 Cor 15:42-58)


And from this I learn that there is no other way I want to live in my own earthly body except to honor the one I will serve in love for all of my days. But this is difficult. Even last night as I was feeling the heaviness of what had happened, I turned to food for comfort just as some might turn to alcohol. I hate that I struggle with such an ugly sin, but I do. However, I can be renewed in this life. Just as my Granny Dot has been renewed. I was deeply encouraged today by my online bible study. I was reminded of this truth
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Cor 3:18

Everything is changing.
I will be given wings.
His grace is sufficient.
His power will be perfected in our weakness.

    This is very special, thanx for sharing your heart on this subject... I have a very special place in my heart for caterpillars knowing that we are only temporary residence on this planet... Philippians 3 v 20 is a favourite... bless you, and may your loss be comforted by the continued knowledge of where your grand-mother is and where we all long to be! top
